The bad news? The release day is nowhere near where you want it to be. In fact, it is at least a year later than many of us expected.
The official Mojang Blog announced that the concrete release date for the film will be May 24, 2019. The movie will be in 3D and IMAX, which is what many people expected. That is all the news that has been released about the movie as of yet. This means that the movie will likely be competing with some huge Memorial Day releases - which goes to show how much faith they have in this movie.
Vu Bui, who is the COO of Mojang said that while it does seem like a long time to wait, it "just so happens to be the right amount of time to make it completely awesome" while promising "loads more" will be shared soon.
In the meantime, Minecraft fans don't have to become bored as there is still a lot to do within the game. They have a newly-launched Battle mini game and Minecraft Realms, a paid multiplayer server hosting service for players.
