It’s official, after months of waiting, Valve has finally announced the date for the much-anticipated release of the DOTA 2 movie True Sight: The International 2019. And it’s happening soon!
The 2019 International unfolded with some bang at Shanghai in August 2019 where Team OG made history by defending their title. OG became the first team to have won the title twice and also the first one to win it in consecutive years. Now, as per tradition, the thrilling journey of the world’s best DOTA 2 players is coming to the silver screen with the 2019 movie set for release. It’s Official!
The documentary film True Sight is the exclusive behind the scenes sneak peek of The International 2019. While it generally focuses on the defender and the new champions, this year’s DOTA 2 movie will be interesting as OG takes both the mantles in 2019. Therefore, we expect the movie’s theme and direction to be different than what we have seen over the years.
DOTA 2 Movie True Sight 2019
Reports opine that this time Valve has made the DOTA 2 movie in a “unique” way which steers away from the protocol. Fan theories suggest that the movie will deeply feature the losers for the very first time i.e. Team Liquid which has been renamed Nigma now.
So that means, the DOTA 2 movie will feature some of the best bunch of e-sports stars that we have on the planet – Team OG’s ana, Topson, Ceb, JerAx and captain N0Tail and Team Liquid’s miCKe, qojqva, Boxi, Taiga and iNSaNiA.
What We’ll See In The 2019 DOTA 2 Movie?
What can be gathered so far is that the DOTA 2 movie will cover the behind the scenes moments across the journey of both the teams as they reach the finals of The International 2019. An episode of the DOTA 2 movie was filmed at the event.
Furthermore, the DOTA 2 movie is also expected to cover the related events at The International 2019 like the cosplay contest and short film contest that had separate prizemoney. The tournament also saw the announcement of two new hero entries to the game. The DOTA 2 movie will also give us an insider’s view of the development of new heroes.
