5 Comforting New Images from the Animated PEANUTS Film
20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have released five new images from The Peanuts Movie, which gives us a new animated adventure for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang. As you'll see in the images, it looks like the story is set during Christmas.
This is the first time that Charles Schulz's Peanuts will be adapted for the big screen, and it's being developed as a CG 3D adventure. If you're worried about these character being modernized, don't. Director Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift) and the rest of his filmmaking team have focused on the "timeless quality of 50-plus years of beloved comic strips and TV specials." We don't have much information on the the story, but the report at USA Today says,
"The story follows the little round-headed boy with the indomitable optimism on a quest to get something he's sure he needs, even though he discovers he's pretty OK just as he is."
That's the basic premise of every Charlie Brown storyline. Which is great, because I wouldn't want to see anything less. The movie is set to hit theaters on November 6th, 2015. I grew up with Charlie Brown, and this film looks like it's shaping up to be a great tribute. These pictures give off a very comforting feel. You can watch a teaser trailer for the film here.
