A Minecraft movie release date has now been revealed after years of constant delays and issues regarding production. After initially being announced in June 2016, the film has since gone on to receive several delays with numerous directors being appointed and then subsequently leaving the project.
Shawn Levy, who is best known as the director of Night at the Museum, was initially tasked with directing this project upon its announcement. However, he was eventually replaced by Rob McElhenney of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame, who also eventually left in 2019.
Now that a specific time frame has been provided, viewers can finally look forward to watching its characters in action against the evil Ender Dragon. So with that said, here’s when you can expect the film based on the popular sandbox game to drop.
When is the Minecraft movie release date?
The Minecraft movie will reportedly be released on April 4, 2025 according to Warner Bros. latest statement. Aside from Jason Momoa starring in the lead role, Jared Hess, known for ‘cult classic’ films such as Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre, will apparently be handed the directorial reins this time around.
Unfortunately, the rest of the cast members are yet to be revealed with the movie’s production having been up in the air for the past few years. With the launch window still being far-off, however, we most likely won’t be getting any more information until we get closer to the specified date.
Hopefully, this latest effort to release the Minecraft movie won’t suffer any more delays like the previous launch window in 2019. Only time will tell if this whole wait has been worth it, but based on the uncertainty surrounding the entire project, the worst may be yet to come for the troubled video game adaptation and the people involved with it.
