Warner Bros. Secures Movie Rights For ‘Minecraft’ Big Screen Blockbuster
The title is one of those insanely popular games whose appeal is a mystery on its face--you build stuff in a blocky, low-res environment to avoid the night time monsters and then you do it again and again--but then you sit and play it, or even watch someone else play it, and you can’t turn away.
It’s not unlike the experience of building and creating with Lego; the concept is simple, but the possibilities are virtually bound only by the imagination. It’s fitting, then, that producer Roy Lee also produced The Lego Movie, which is a combination of a love letter to and an advertisement for Lego that is simply delightful--and most importantly, looks like 90 minutes of amazing Lego sets and creations.
If the Minecraft movie is anything like The Lego Movie, fans will be pleased.
