Minecraft artists have been making animated shorts about the game since its debut in the gaming world.
Minecraft animations were first made popular all the way back in 2012 when a huge Coldplay parody video called "Fallen Kingdom" came out on YouTube. This parody video was the first Minecraft animation many young players saw at the time and inspired multitudes of new builds, animations, and gamers.
