Given Minecraft's influence in pop culture, particularly in gaming, it isn't really a surprise that it's getting a movie of its own. After all, almost every major video game franchise has a full-length film to its name, live action or otherwise. Some even have two, in case the first failed. So yes, the Minecraft movie is a real thing and now it even has a real date. Mojang reveals on its site that the film will be released on May 24, 2019, in regular, 3D, and IMAX theaters.
