The lights are on
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.

This makes me want this game even more. Diablo 3 will be awesome
I just saw this video 3 hours ago! Lol
Great animated short. I'm really pumped for Diablo III!
Oh cool, animated shorts!
I've needed an escape from life for awhile. I can't wait to sink into D3 and play for days. Maybe I'll even sleep.
I quite like the art style and watching this is making the wait a little better.
This was awesome! I would really like to see an entire series of Diablo!
This is good stuff, and the presentation fits diablo very well.
Oddly enough, this made the wait for D3 a bit more bearable.
So did The Book of Cain. If you're a fan of the Diablo series, you should definitely check it out. Bunch of great background on all the major cities, clans, demons, angels, and conflicts in Sanctuary and beyond.
Can't wait to play D3!
This cool film makes me want to get a better new computer and get diablo 3 at the same time.
Getting ready for Diablo III wohoo :D
