Jason Momoa and Jack Black Celebrate 15 Years of Minecraft

Celebrating the 15th year of ‘Minecraft’s influential presence on our screens, actors Jason Momoa and Jack Black posted a video on the game’s official Instagram page. The video highlighted their engaging dynamic and featured them wielding ‘Minecraft’-style swords and pickaxes.

The post congratulated the game on “crafting kick axe memories since ‘09,” stirring excitement for what the upcoming ‘Minecraft’ movie might bring.

Anticipating the ‘Minecraft’ Movie

The much-anticipated ‘Minecraft’ movie completed its filming in New Zealand last month. The production had started in June 2023 but was briefly interrupted by the SAG-AFTRA strike. As filming resumed in January, the process now moves to the post-production phase.

Helmed by Jared Hess, known for his work on comedies like ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ and ‘Nacho Libre,’ the movie draws from a screenplay by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. The cast includes names like Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Coolidge, Kate McKinnon, Jemaine Clement, and Emma Myers of ‘Wednesday’ fame.

Interestingly, the idea of a ‘Minecraft’ movie first emerged in 2012. Several names have been associated with it since, including Rob McElhenney of ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,’ who was initially set to direct, and Steve Carell, who was slated for a voice role. The flick is now being produced by Warner Bros.

Wrapping Up

Fans of the game and the actors can look forward to the movie hitting theatres on April 4, 2025. Get ready for a visual treat that fuses the universes of ‘Minecraft’ and Hollywood. For more updates on this and other prominent movie releases, make sure to visit HitPlay.
