RE: How would you structure the Minecraft movie?

Hello Johnny and Joel!

I am a massive fan of the show. You provide probably the most intelligent Minecraft content on the internet. (That’s not to say i don’t enjoy the more ridiculous stuff just as much but you get the jist.) 

Personally I enjoy Minecraft as a creative tool and as a way to enjoy mini-games. Firstly, do you have any tips to get into survival? 

My main question for you is actually about the Minecraft movie. The chat about the Minecraft movie in development is that by all accounts it will be live action. How would you guys structure a Minecraft movie? The current plot sounds alright but is there anything you would prefer? And how would you do it? Animation or live-action with CGI? 

Personally I would expect it to be live actors in a CGI environment. Although, hopefully with some sets.

Would love to hear your thoughts!

A Minecraft Dungeons Free-For-All!

Looking ahead to the launch of Minecraft Dungeons tomorrow, (Tuesday, May 26, 2020) Jonny and Joel discuss their favourite things about their time in the BETA and what they’re looking forward to with the full release.

  • How much did we play during the beta?

  • How much do we plan to play the full game? Do we plan on playing mostly single-player or multiplayer?

  • What has been the most appealing aspect of the game so far?

  • What are our favourite weapons/artifacts/character builds?

  • Are there any features we are looking forward to that were not in the BETA but have been in promotional materials or videos? 

  • How could Minecraft Dungeons be expanded? What could be improved about the game?
