Minecraft: The Movie is an upcoming 2019 Swedish-American 3D film based on the video game of the same name. It is being directed by Rob McElhenney and written by Jason Fuchs. It will be released on May 24, 2019.
The movie was revealed on February 27, 2014 by Notch when he posted on Twitter that Mojang's partnership with Warner Bros. about a Minecraft film was being leaked. Script work began on March 2, 2014.
On October 8, 2014, Vu Bui stated that the movie was in "its early days of development", saying that it was a "large-budget production". He also stated that it might not be released until 2018.
On July 21, 2015, Vu Bui announced that Rob McElhenney would serve as the director of the film, ultimately replacing former director, Shawn Levy. Levy was originally going to direct the film, but parted ways with the project because the studio "didn't dig the idea."
On June 27, 2016, Mojang announced the title and release date for "Minecraft: The Movie" by showing the front cover of the script and publicly announcing a release date.
