New “Peanuts” movie slated for 2015
A teaser trailer was just posted this morning for the new Peanuts movie that is slated for November of next year. Based on the popular comic strip of the same name by the late Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts will feature the characters that we have all come to love, including Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Sally, and of course Snoopy’s bird companion Woodstock. The animation is beautiful in this teaser, and it turns out that Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Rio) wants it to remain as faithful to the original comic strip as possible.
The new film will mark the 65th anniversary of the original Peanuts comic strip’s debut in 1950, as well as the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first of many Peanuts television specials that premiered during Schulz’s lifetime. The film is set to premiere in November of next year.
