In the continuous campaign that is Minecraft from developer Mojang Studios, the team finds new ways to reinvigorate the pixelated cliffs and valleys of the game more than 10 years later. This week, Minecraft Dungeons is to welcome its second season for new content with Luminous Nights to welcome a new experience to returning players.

Minecraft itself on Xbox did feature elements of raytracing for Xbox Insiders a few weeks back. But, Mojang Studios later retracted the feature claiming it was a mistake on its behalf. Other upcoming plans that were scheduled for this year was a film adaptation. Originally scheduled for March 4, The Hollywood Reporter in October 2020 shared the motion picture removed the listing with no back up date for the fim at the time.

But this week, The Ankler reports that the Minecraft movie is making some impressive waves with this new story. In that, Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess is now said to be involved with the production in the director’s chair. Additionally, the film adaptation is also told to star Aquaman star Jason Momoa for the production as well.

According to the publication, Momoa is in the final stage of negotiations for the live-action film. It also presses that production has likely already began for the Minecraft movie as Warner Bros. lease of the rights for the film expired in January – leaving room to speculate that the group did not want to waste the asset and started ahead of that.

Other big news for Minecraft took place earlier in 2022 on YouTube. In that, it was said that the game has generated more than 1 trillion hours watched online in its the decade the game has been around. You can read the full report by heading here.
