More Minecraft Movie Details

With Minecraft now on the Wii U, it seems that this bestselling game (one of the best sellers of all time, in fact) is truly poised to conquer the world—but wait, there’s always film and television to leap into, right? Yes, indeed. There have already been a number of multimedia spinoff ventures from this game, but the movie is at the forefront of every fan’s mind.

Collider recently spoke to the Minecraft film’s producer Roy Lee to see if he’d be willing to offer up any new info on the game’s cinematic debut:

“The company, Mojang, is very involved in the development. So they know everything is going to be in the movie that can give us insight into future updates so we can put things into the movie around the same time they relaunch newer versions of the game and at the same time, potentially taking ideas from the movie and putting them into the game. So I don’t know exactly what things are going into the game, but they know exactly what’s going into the movie.”

Sounds like the development studio is working hard to ensure that the film version of the game doesn’t take too many liberties with what makes the game so popular among players of all ages, with Mojang even including elements that haven’t even yet appeared in the game.

According to Lee, the target audience for the movie is also going to be “the same target audience as Jurassic World,” whatever that means. Maybe a little more mature than a PG film, but surely not too far beyond that—though considering that Jurassic World appealed to both nostalgic Jurassic Park fans and younger children and teens, we’re wondering if Lee is trying to subtly suggest it’ll be a film to span the generational divide.

Whether that’s possible remains to be seen.
