The panorama is a slowly panning wide-angle view of a Minecraft world displayed on the main menu. In Java Edition, this scene remained the same from inception until Java Edition 1.12, after which the background was changed for each themed update.
This page also covers other images which have been used as the backgrounds of menu screens for completion's sake.
The unreleased menu screen panorama that came before the final version.
Dinnerbone has stated that the menu panorama was originally going to be an in-game render of a live world, with custom world generation with the seed 100. He also mentioned another panorama that came before the one seen in Beta 1.8, which was a plains biome near the beach.
The original menu panorama in-game. (Coordinates: X≈61.48, Y=75, Z≈-68.73)
This was introduced to Java Edition in Beta 1.8's early development, and used for over six years before its replacement in the 1.13 prerelease stage. It was also used in Pocket Edition from v0.7.3 alpha up to somewhere in its early release phase. Its use in other editions is unknown.
The menu panorama was changed for the first time in six and a half years for the Update Aquatic. This panorama uses seed 18w22a (numeric: 1458140401) at coordinates X=1553.76, Y=58.62, Z=-1162.79. This seed generates most correctly in version 18w22a.
The Village & Pillage menu panorama showcases a small plains village. This panorama image was taken near the spawn of 2802867088795589976 at coordinates X=240.57, Y=78.12, Z=147.38. This seed generates most correctly in version 18w48a. In the panorama, a plains village is shown next to a bamboo jungle and an outpost to the distant. There are a total of 3 villages that can be seen. The 3rd is behind the outpost.
Changed panorama again to match Java Edition. Exclusively changed clouds on panorama_0.png, panorama_1.png, panorama_2.png, panorama_3.png, panorama_4.png. Only panorama_5.png identical to Java Edition.
