Mojang has announced Will Arnett as the host of next month’s MINECON Earth event. He also will be joined on the stage with Mojang’s Lydia Winters, and viewers can expect tons of interactive entertainment and humor as well as a celebration of all things Minecraft.
As a reminder, MINECON Earth starts on November 18th and the 90-minute long live stream celebration will bring together a community of hundreds of millions of people all around the world. Will Arnett is the perfect face for the event, as the Canadian-American comedian and actor has appeared in tons of movies and TV shows. Some may recognize him as Mr. Quagmire from A Series of Unfortunate Events and the voice of Bruce Wayne and Batman in the LEGO Batman movie.
The actor even says sons are fans of Minecraft: “My boys and I have so much fun playing Minecraft, but even more than that, I love how Minecraft inspires so much creativity in them. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of MINECON!”
You can watch MINECON Earth on both Mixer and Twitch, at 12 pm EST / 5 pm GMT on November 18th, or attend a viewing party in your local area for the chance to meet up with fellow Minecraft fans. There’s likely to be a ton of surprises during the live stream, so be sure to check it out.
