Synopsis: For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz’s timeless Peanuts comic strip will be making their big-screen debut; like they’ve never been seen before in a CG-animated feature film in 3D.
Release Date: November 6, 2015
Thoughts: Admittedly, I have a very soft spot in my heart for the simple hand-drawn animation that gave the early Peanuts films and TV specials such heart. And it’s a bit of a shock that it took so long for a studio to capitalize on the lasting impression the characters in Charles Schulz’s imagination have left on the public. Though the film isn’t due for release until late in 2015 and plot details are unknown, a teaser morsel has been released (which we’ll probably see before every animated film for the next 22 months) and while it may be a little too brightly fancy free, I’m looking forward to seeing the gang in a new film. After all, it’s been 34 years since Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Sally, Lucy, Linus, and the rest have had a film in theaters. It’s time.
