We’ve known for a while that Warner Brothers was going to take charge of bringing the Minecraft video game to the big screen as a movie adaptation. However, things got quiet after that. We know Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) will be directing the movie, but we don’t really have any other details outside of that.
Well, turns out the movie has a locked down release date. Mojang posted an update on their site today, announcing the movie’s release date, and also confirming that it will be available in IMAX and 3D. Sounds great, right? The catch: the release date is May 24, 2019. That’s about three years from now.
“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?”
Well, alright. We’ll check back in another couple of years then. What do you think the Minecraft movie will be about? Let us know in the comments down below.
