The movie based on the block-building world of Minecraft is set to release on May 24th, 2019 in 3D and IMAX.
Minecraft developer Mojang admitted in the official announcment that the date is far off, but said that nearly three years is the “right amount of time to make [the movie] completely awesome.”
Not many details have been announced about the Minecraft movie, but we do know that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Rob McElhenney is set to direct, with Roy Lee, who also produced The Lego Movie, will also produce the film based on Mojang’s smash hit. Lee said that the Minecraft movie will be a “live-action version of a Minecraft experience,” and will target the same audience as Jurassic World.
Mojang promised more details on the movie “as time goes on.”
