As many of you have heard by now, Minecraft will be getting the Movie treatment. Last we heard in 2014, the movie is about 2-4 years from actually being released, but in the meantime it looks like some additional details have been revealed, thanks to a report from Collider who managed to speak to the movie’s producer, Roy Lee.
According to Lee, the movie will be targeted at audiences similar to that of Jurassic World, which means that it could potentially end up being a PG-13 movie. However given that Minecraft appeals to kids of all ages, it might be a better idea to make it a PG rating since it would open itself up to a wider audience, similar to the LEGO movie which was also produced by Lee.
Lee also gave Collider a logline for the movie, which according to him will be, “Minecraft would be part of a multiverse where humans can enter that has the feel of what the live action version of a Minecraft experience.” He also revealed that the game’s developers Mojang will be involved in the development of the movie. He also pointed out that it is possible that Mojang could borrow ideas from the movie to put into future versions of the game.
