Minecraft Movie to Drop April 2025, Momoa Still Involved
Following a long period of time with no news regarding the project, the Minecraft movie has finally been given a release date of April 4th, 2025. It’s also reportedly still going to feature Aquaman’s Jason Momoa in some capacity, but at present, no other actors are penned to be taking part in the project.
This project is the culmination of years of work. For more than a decade, Minecraft has been establishing itself as the most popular game of all time, having sold hundreds of millions of copies over the years. Now, the Minecraft movie comes one step closer to being a reality, and all of a sudden, the franchise’s profile becomes that much bigger.
Minecraft Movie May Emerge
In a report published by ComicBook.com, it was revealed that Warner Bros. has been trying to get the wheels turning on a Minecraft movie for at least ten years. It makes sense, and it seems slightly bizarre that, until now, no studio has tried to capitalise on the universal success of Minecraft.
It’s expected that a Minecraft movie will be a live-action adaptation of the popular, block-based game, but how exactly that’ll work, we have no idea. Will Momoa take on the role of Steve, running around an open world and punching down trees with his bare fists?
Jason Hess, the director of Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite will head the development of the movie, but there’s not much more information available other than that.
It should be stressed that the talk surrounding this project has been circulating since 2019 when it was revealed that Jason Momoa would be a key part of the cast. Since then, the script and the associated project have been passed from pillar to post, but hopefully, it’s about to gain traction.
There are a lot of live-action adaptations emerging right now, and some of them – like HBO’s The Last of Us – are seeing great success. Will the Minecraft movie be the next adaptation to succeed?
