The film adaptation of the popular video game Warcraft reaches the Spanish screens on Friday, June 3 littered with fantastic scenery, special effects, famous actors and… saddles manufactured in Spain.
The production team of the film directed by Duncan Jones chose the company Marjoman (Spain) to make the saddles that would ride the protagonists –and much of the rest of cast of this American blockbuster. Thus, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton and Dominic Cooper (Anduin Lothar, Garona and King Llane in fiction) used in their scenes horse saddles made in Spain but in keeping with the aesthetics of the movie. They also incorporated other accessories like bridles and breastplates.
Jose Luis Castellanos, manager in Marjoman, retains a replica of the saddle made for the character of King Llane, a nice combination of brown leather with royal blue suede leather.
According to Jose Luis Castellanos, “working on this project was a nice experience. The relationship with the production team was very friendly and I think the result was spectacular. The production team of the film Warcraft contacted us in autumn 2013 (shortly before the start of the shoot) for the development of several elements that lead the horses and we were several weeks working closely to get to materialize the designs they had created.”
Marjoman company has extensive experience in developing products for film and television. Another of its major projects was his contribution to the film Prince of Persia. A version of the saddle made for this film belongs to the catalog of Marjoman.
