The Minecraft Movie: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot and Everything We Know So Far

People used to say bad things about movies based on video games, but recent hits like The Super Mario Bros. Movie, The Last of Us, and Arcane have shown they can work with the right creative team. Warner Brothers and Mojang have often switched teams since they first talked about making a Minecraft movie in 2014. The movie has undergone many changes, and many directors have been involved, but none of them have left the project until now. With a director, an A-list star, and a release date, the long-delayed and much-reworked Minecraft movie is finally coming together.

Who is in The Minecraft Movie Cast?

In April 2022, it was announced that the Minecraft movie will star Jason Momoa. Momoa has been very busy lately. He plays Aquaman in the DCEU and the main bad guy in Fast X, which comes out this summer. We don’t know much about the character Momoa will play yet, but it could be “Steve,” the most well-known player avatar in the game. (Alex is the name of the default female avatar)

In May 2023, it was announced that Matt Berry, who starred in What We Do in the Shadows, would join Momoa on the show in an unspecified role.

You may have heard that Steve Carell was going to be in the Minecraft movie in the past, but that is no longer true. People talked a lot about Carrell’s involvement in 2016, but the project has changed a lot since then, and the star of The Office and Despicable Me is not thought to be attached anymore.

Is There a Trailer for the Minecraft Movie?

The fact that there is no promotional material for the film available at this time is not surprising given that the film is not expected to be released until at least two years from now.

What Is the Minecraft Movie Plot?

Not much has been said about the movie’s plot. There have been many different versions of the project, and it’s unclear what parts of those earlier versions will be used in this movie. An early version of the movie was going to be about “people taking control of their experience in the digital landscape.” Another version was about “a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers” who must save their Overworld from an Ender Dragon. It’s not clear if that story will still be used.

Of course, the plot has never been the point of Minecraft itself. Instead, the game is an open-world building and survival game where players, alone or with friends, build elaborate and detailed structures and try to stay alive when creepers, zombies, and skeletons attack. Minecraft has a lot of different ways to play, so players can focus on the parts they like best, like building, surviving, or working together.

Even though the game doesn’t have a story, it has some interesting places, like The Nether, which is a dangerous and hellish dimension, and The End, which is a group of floating islands guarded by the fierce Ender Dragon. It also has enemies like Creepers and Endermen that everyone knows. We think the movie will want to show off these classic bad guys who everyone knows.

Who is the Director of the Minecraft Movie?

There have been more behind-the-scenes changes than cast changes in Minecraft. The Minecraft movie was originally directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, The Adam Project, Free Guy), with a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). In 2014, all three left the project due to “creative differences” with videogame developer Mojang. Levy told The Wall Street Journal a few weeks after his departure that he wanted to make an adventure film with “a bit of a Goonies flair.”

Nearly two years later, Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) was reported to direct the film from a script he co-wrote with Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman). The film’s producer, Roy Lee, told Collider in 2016 that it would have explored player agency in digital open-world games. McElhenney told Josh Horowitz on the “Happy Sad Confused Podcast” that the project was very close to going through, but after a change in studio heads from Greg Silverman to Toby Emmerich, his version of the project no longer fit the studio’s vision.

In 2018, Adam and Aaron Nee (The Lost City) rewrote the script after McElhenney left. In early 2019, Peter Sollett (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist) directed the film. Sollett’s film was supposed to star a female Ender Dragon fighter. After the Nee Brothers left, Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures) took over the script.

This changed again when Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) was hired to direct the film. Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer wrote Masterminds with Hess and wrote the script.
