The Minecraft Movie Has a Release Date

Plans for the Minecraft movie are already underway, and now has an official release date, as shared by developer Mojang (via. Eurogamer). Fans of the pixelly-sandbox adventure game still have a while to wait yet, though, as it’s slated to hit cinemas in 2019.

Mojang, the developer behind the wildly successful survival-sandbox game has announced that the Minecraft movie will release just under three years from now, on May 24 2019. It’s been directed by Rob McElhenney (co-creator and star of sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and will be produced by Warner Bros. LEGO Movie producer Roy Lee will also lend a hand on the project.

“Yes, that might seem like a long time away, but it just so happens to be the right amount of time to make it completely awesome.” says Mojang exec Vu Bui “And we all want an awesome Minecraft movie, right?

Despite its unmistakably pixellated visual style, that doesn’t mean the Minecraft movie won’t enjoy some hi-def action. The film will be shown in both 3D and IMAX, presumably in addition to the standard 2D showings.

Minecraft began as a small indie project back in 2009, and saw its first official release by Mojang in November 2011. Since then, the game has reached worldwide appreciation, spanning a host of different platforms, from PC and consoles to mobile and Raspberry Pi. Mojang also recently ported the game onto Samsung’s Gear VR, to allow players to experience Minecraft’s open-world quirks in Virtual Reality.
