A Tree from the Set of the Live-Action ‘Minecraft’ Movie Has Been Spotted

A Tree from the Set of the Live-Action 'Minecraft' Movie Has Been Spotted

Movie-goers will know that we’ve had a surge of video-game and toy-based films in recent years, most of which have done good. There’s The LEGO Movie, the new Super Mario animated film, Barbie, and more… and Minecraft, one of the most popular games in history, is slated to become the most recent addition to this list. The movie has been announced a while ago and is set for an April 4, 2025 release, and we have finally seen some shots from the filming, which is now in process.

The movie is filmed in New Zealand, as far as it is known, and while it was originally slated to start in 2023, the SAG-AFTRA strike postponed the production of the movie and while it had begun by mid-January 2024, the delays are obvious. Still, based on the release date, there will be enough time to make the movie properly.

And while there hasn’t been any news surrounding the production recently, two leaked set photos seemingly appeared, showing of a tree from the set of the movie. You can check the leaked photos here:

And while some fans joked that this was not a set photo, but rather what trees actually look like in New Jersey (although the film is supposedly filmed in New Zealand?), it is clearly something from the set of the upcoming movie, as Minecraft fans will know. It seems that the staff of the movie wants to create a very authentic final product, which is definitely great news for fans of the video game.

Minecraft is directed by Jared Hess from a script written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. The movie is starring Jack Black as Steve, Danielle Brooks as Dawn, and Sebastian Eugene Hansen as Henry, while Jason Momoa, Emma Myers, Jennifer Coolidge, Kate McKinnon, and Jemaine Clement have been cast in undisclosed roles. Warner Bros. is distributing the movie which is, as we have said, set for an April 2025 premiere. Until then, be sure to keep following us for more updates related to the movie’s production.
