Mark your calendars cube heads! The Minecraft Movie release date has been announced.
Minecraft Movie will hit theaters on May 24, 2019. It will share the limelight with Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 2 and the yet to be titled Star Wars: Episode 9.
The release date was announced on the official Mojang blogsite. Vu Bui, the game developer’s COO, said moviegoers will be able to experience the film in 3D and IMAX.
“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,” Bui said regarding the three-year wait before the film releases in 2019. “And we all want an awesome Minecraft movie, right?”
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” actor and co-creator Rob McElhenney has been tapped to direct the film. AV Club reported that the upcoming computer-animated film will be McElhenney’s first full-length feature project after working as a TV actor, writer and producer for well over ten years.
While the Minecraft movie release date was already announced, Mojang and Warner Bros. have yet to reveal plot details for the film. Given the random nature of the video game it is based on, the movie has limitless possibilities as far as storylines are concerned.
Minecraft became the darling of sandbox gamers when it first released on Microsoft Windows in May 2009. Minecraft became an instant hit, as players were duly entertained by the open-world freedom at their disposable. Players can spend the day constructing lavish temples, pursuing hidden treasures or vanquishing the Ender Dragon.
Minecraft Movie will be produced by well-renowned CGI artist Roy Lee. Lee’s production company Vertigo Entertainment had a hand in 2014’s critically-acclaimed computer-animated film The Lego Movie.
