Hearthstone has celebrated the launch of today's big Kobolds and Catacombs expansion with a live-action trailer.

The video pretends to be a trailer for The Light Candle, the direct-to-VHS directorial debut of chief kobold King Togwaggle.

However true that is, Blizzard has created a loving tribute to 1980s fantasy films - most notably the puppetmasters of the Jim Henson Company, and their films Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.

And yes, that is Janina Gavankar from Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs is available now - you can log in and you'll get a handful of free card packs. Apart from 130-odd new cards, the expansion's other big addition is a Dungeon Run single-player activity. It all sounds very promising - we'll be playing over the weekend.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
