Peter Sollett has been brought on to write and direct Warner Bros.’ long-anticipated film adaptation of the popular video game “Minecraft.”
Based on the globally popular video game, the story follows a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers who, after the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.

Kinda.. generic? Let's see what will come from this. They've been planning on making a Minecraft movie since 2014. But this one is stated for 2019.. don't think that's gonna happen. The IP still holds enough strength.

So no more Rob McElhenny? Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing what a Minecraft movie made by Mac from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia would be like.

It could be fun, at least it doesn't seem an isekai or an origin/explanation story for the world itself.
It's the Minecraft world, there are adventures on it. Just like for the Detective Pikachu film, I think it's the right approach to start for these videogame films.
