- Pre-2006, James Waugh tried to have StarCraft optioned as a movie. Chris Metzen was reciprocal to the idea.
- In 2007, Metzen was asked about the possibility of a StarCraft movie. He ventured that if such a work was made, it wouldn't be about Nova.
- In 2010, Rob Pardo commented Blizzard Entertainment could have done a StarCraft movie years ago, and that it's simply a matter of finding the right person for the job. James Cameron would be such a person in his mind. Interest in a possible movie has increased since his comments, but no studio holds the right to a movie, nor have any actors or directors been attached yet.
- Activision Blizzard considers it "likely" that they will do a movie based on the cinematics of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, essentially porting them to a DVD.

- In 2015, Activision Blizzard Studios listed the StarCraft setting as one of Blizzard Entertainment's franchises that they could develop a film for.
