The live action Minecraft movie, directed by Peter Sollett, will be released on March 4, 2022. The story involves “A teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers who must save their beautiful, blocky overworld from the destruction of an ender dragon.” The film was acquired by Warner Bros back in 2014, with an original release for May 2019 until the previous director dropped the project.
There’s no word on voice actors or actors thereof. Rumors have circulated that Steve Carell will star in the movie, but it hasn’t been confirmed. With Minecraft’s latest post on the story involving a teenage girl as the main character; it seems that rumor is less likely.
I’ve played more Minecraft than I’d like to admit. Way back to the Xbox360 days. It’s the second best selling video game in history. Thinking of a live action movie is hard to imagine because you’d think it’ll all be animation. Why would you put real lifeness into a game like this? I just don’t understand how it will work, but it sounds cool.
