Of all the major concepts to become a film, the hit video game Minecraft is next in line to be brought to the big screen. Discussions about a Minecraft film has been in the works since 2014 with Warner Bros, likely due to the success of The LEGO Movie. This past January, the film was officially announced in development with Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist director, Peter Sollett attached to direct, and recently more information was release regarding the film on Minecraft‘s Official Website.
The website announced the countdown to the film’s release date, being only 1053 days away or more accurately, March 4th 2022. The film’s plot centers around a teenage girl trying to save her blocky Overworld from a creature known as Ender Dragon. No other major information has been stated regarding the film, however the team behind Minecraft expressed much excitement for the upcoming feature film. They expressed that the film is definitely catered for fans as in the article they said, “We want to make the movie — just as we make the game — for you.” Minecraft might seem like an odd film concept on the surface, but with creators trying to please both the most die-hard of fans and casual viewers, it should be a satisfying experience for anyone interested in or deeply invested in the Minecraft world.
Minecraft is set to release on March 4th 2022. More details can be found on the Minecraft Website.
