World of Warcraft Popular Movie References: Stargate


As you know from time to time I love to draw parallels between World of Warcraft and popular film culture, and I’ve done so with MIB, War of the Worlds, The Karate Kid, and many others.

When I first started leveling mage, I remember it struck me at the time – but then I completely forgot to screenshot it, and it’s one of the more obvious ones, so I always neglected to blog about it. But no more!

So naturally the portal exit in the mage tower…



…totally reminds me of the original Stargate Film, and of course the subsequent Stargate Series.

Although not as clear in this shot above, definitely a better resemblance here below of the portal from Stargate …

Yet another reason, why I love this game.


  1. Nice reference 🙂 I’ve seen quite a few similarities in the game for movies too!
