[UPDATE] Would You Watch A Feature-Length ‘Minecraft’ Film?

Minecraft

If you’re a fan of Minecraft, or cross country running, than Birth of Man may very well be up your alley. The film is inspired by Mojang’s massively popular blocky sandbox game, and it will have an impressive feature-length running time. The ambitious project launched a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter earlier today where it’s looking to raise $600,000.

With as popular as Minecraft is, I don’t see that being a difficult goal to reach. The only question is, do you want to see it?

UPDATE: The movie’s Kickstarter has been cancelled. Apparently, Mojang, the studio behind Minecraft, wasn’t okay with Rocket Jump raising $600,000 for something that’s based on their IP.

    wow, that’s really taking fandom to a new level. not sure if I would watch it. definitely wouldn’t put it past the internet to make this thing a reality though.

      I wouldn’t waste my time watching something like this. I understand that people will say “It’s art.” or “We’re die-hard fans of Minecraft.” But sometimes people just go too far.

      It’s hard for me to hear about the Lego video game franchises… Lego Star Wars, Lego Freddy Krugar, Lego Super Heroes. Now this? If this became a reality I’d have one huge head-ache.
