Minecraft Movie Gets a New Later Release Date for 20221 month ago by Ivette Epps in Movie News, Games
The Minecraft movie was originally set to release in May 2019, but game developer Mojang has been quietly laying groundwork for the upcoming live-action movie to release in 2022.
Mojang announced in a news post Tuesday that the Minecraft film has been set to hit theaters March 4, 2022. The plot of the movie is rather simple and everything blocky as Mojang summed it up shortly. “The story of a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers… After the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, they must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.” The movie will be written and directed by Peter Sollett, who was the director behind “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.” The movie will be made in partnership with Warner Bros.
Amusingly, the creators behind the popular video game we’re playful with the announcement of the new date.
“That date is March 4, 2022. Does it sound distant? We beg to differ! It’s only 1053 days. Or about 34 months, or 150 weeks, or a million and a half minutes. Not that we’re counting, of course. Besides, it turns out that making a live-action, full-length feature film is really complicated!”
At this time, there are no further details about the movie, but you can keep up to date with the Minecraft creators here.
