‘Minecraft’ movie to release in 2022

Warner Bros. will be bringing the super-successful sandbox game brand Minecraft to the big screen on 4 March 2022.

The synopsis of the feature goes as follows:

Minecraft the movie tells the story of a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers. After the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, they must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.

Directed by Peter Sollet (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and co-creator Rob McElhenney, Minecraft is based on the addictive, lo-fi, boxy world-building game created by Swedish developer Mojang (which Microsoft bought for $2.5 billion in 2014).

Alongside the game franchise, Minecraft has inspired toys, accessories and, appropriately, LEGO construction sets and minifigs. The audiences have also seen episodes of South Park, The Simpsons and Adventure Time inspired by Minecraft.
