Warner Bros. Announces Release Date for Minecraft Movie

From the moment those 3-D blocks invaded our PCs and Consoles, Minecraft has been a massive hit to gamers young and old.  Beginning with it’s original, creation-centered gameplay the game has grown to add a ton more features, over the years.  It’s even incorporated other mediums, like Doctor Who, as DLCs to pull in more fans.  Telltale Games has even done a series of the game.  

Today, they add another achievement to their wall.  Warner Bros. has announced that the Minecraft movie will hit theaters on May 24, 2019!

The movie is set to be directed by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney. Producers Jill Messick (Mean Girls) and Roy Lee (The LEGO Movie) are also attached to the project.

So far, there isn’t much more information to divulge on the plot or who will be cast in the movie.  However, there is a worry among fans that this could just be another video game movie bomb.  The addition of Lee, as a producer, is relieving as it could mean that the film will take from the same elements that made The LEGO Movie into such a successful movie.

It’s also important to note that WB has already announced that this will be a live-action movie, not animated.  This could mean that the Minecraft movie will utilize some real-world scenes but still incorporate an original Minecraft world. 

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a little less than 3 years before we find out exactly what it’ll be about when the Minecraft movie hits theaters on May 24, 2019!
