May 24, 2019
The movie was revealed on February 27, 2014 by Notch when he posted on Twitter that someone was trying to leak Mojang's partnership with Warner Bros. about a Minecraft film. He stated that he wanted to be the leak. 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.
