Blizzard has teamed up with renowned animator Peter Chung to bring us a short film outlining some of the back-story of Diablo.

Chung is probably best known for directing much of Aeon Flux, as well as co-creating the characters and creating the opening sequence to Nickelodeon's Rugrats.

You can check out the animated short below, and you can pick up Diablo III next week on May 15. It's pretty surprising that we are able to write the previous sentence as a truthful statement of fact, but it's totally true. You can play Diablo III next week.
