The Minecraft movie, which has been in the works for a little while now, finally has a release date… May 24, 2019. Yep. Three years away.
Mojang announced the news via a blog post, saying that it’s the right amount of time to make the movie awesome, despite already having around two or three years development time.
“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,” Mojang announced. “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?”
Could this additional three years help this movie break the curse of the video game movie? Something that even the latest movie, Warcraft, couldn’t do.
