Remember the Minecraft movie that has quietly been in development? Probably not; but there’s now official an official Minecraft movie update direct from Microsoft that helps solidify a couple key development milestones.
The first official Minecraft movie confirmation is that Peter Sollett has signed on to direct. Sollett is known for helming Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist back in 2008 before moving over to the TV side for the next decade. Microsoft wants fans to be aware of Nick & Norah so they included the film’s trailer in their press announcement — and we’ve passed it on to you below.
Microsoft has also confirmed a March 4, 2022 Minecraft movie release date so mark your calendar.
Last but not least, here’s the first official Minecraft movie film synopsis that appears to remain true to the game’s spirit while delving into new stories.
“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.”
