It’s an already known recipe – first you make a genre defining game, than it becomes a global hit, makes a lot of money, and finally, you turn it into a movie. One of today’s most popular games, Minecraft is apparently the latest title to join the ‘video games turned movies’ club, as developer of the game, Mojang announced it prepares the Minecraft movie for 2019.
Mojang just signed a deal with Warner Bros, which will produce the Minecraft movie in 3D & IMAX. No further details about the movie were revealed, except the official release date, as the movie is set for release on May 24, 2019. We still don’t know anything about potential characters, plot, or anything else. All we know is that the Minecraft movie is indeed happening!
“Hello future Minecraft movie-goers! I know you’ve been thinking just about every day, “When’s the Minecraft movie coming out?” Luckily for you, we can finally say! The Minecraft movie will be released on May 24, 2019! The film will also be released in 3D & IMAX. 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. And we all want an awesome Minecraft movie, right? That’s it for now, but as time goes on we’ll share loads more. Loads!”
Of course, just like the announcement said, 2019 feels like a long time away, so both Mojang and Warner Bros. have a plenty of time ahead of them to reveal all details about the movie.
