It’s been 65 years since Charles M. Schulz first delivered Charlie Brown and his dog Snoopy to newspapers on October 2nd, 1950. The comic would go on to span 17,897 strips through February 13th, 2000, and at its peak, ran in over 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries, translated into 21 languages. And now all that rich history is coming to the big screen with The Peanuts Movie.
The final Peanuts Movie trailer celebrates the seven-decade history of friendship and fun that has come with Charlie Brown and the whole gang, and brings it into the 21st century with a stylish but reserved computer animation makeover that keeps everything we love about Schulz’s iconic illustrations, while bringing them into the third dimension.

A brand new Peanuts Movie trailer has been released and it goes for “epic.” The Who’s ‘Baba O’Riley’ plays, every member of the cast is introduced, and Charlie Brown is his usual, lovable, unlucky self on a bigger scale than ever.

The Peanuts Movie opens November 6 from Blue Sky Studios and Fox. Check out the new Peanuts Movie trailer below. Read More »

Given how ubiquitous Charlie Brown and Snoopy still are, it’s a bit surprising to realize they haven’t been the subjects of their own full-length feature film in 35 years. But that changes this fall with The Peanuts Movie, which gives Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved creations a 3D CG upgrade.
On paper, that description sounds kind of alarming — does that mean we’re in for a cooler, sexier Charlie? As the new Peanuts Movie poster reveals, you needn’t fear. The gang’s all here, and they still look like their own delightful selves. Check out the Peanuts Movie poster after the jump.

Star Wars and Jurassic Park aren’t the only classic franchises up for a revival this year. This November brings The Peanuts Movie, the first-ever full-length feature film based on Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved characters.
Though the new film gives the old property a 21st century makeover — complete with CG and 3D — it retains the same timeless quality of the source material. Or it tries to, anyway. We’ll see how that turns out when the movie actually premieres. Watch the new The Peanuts Movie trailer after the jump.

Frankly, we were pretty nervous when we first heard that Fox and Blue Sky were trying to will a 3D, CG-animated Peanuts movie into being. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) coming on as a producer seemed like a good sign, but we’ve seen enough awful kids’ films to know how easy they are to screw up.
But now the very first Peanuts trailer has arrived, and we’re thrilled and incredibly relieved to see that it is nowhere near horrible. In fact, it’s quite good. Aside from the fact that they’re now 3D and CG-animated, Charlie Brown and Snoopy are exactly as you remember them. Hit the jump to check it out.

When you think of an animated Charlie Brown, Fox and Ice Age animation house Blue Sky Studios don’t want the only vision that comes to mind to be from the old animated specials seen during holidays on television. No, the two companies are going to want you to think of their new animated take on Charles Schulz‘s long-running Peanuts gang.
Fox and Blue Sky have been angling for the rights to make a Peanuts film for years, and now things are all set, with a release date of November 25, 2015 inked for a feature that will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the comic strip. (It’ll also be the 50th anniversary of the best-known animated version of Peanuts, A Charlie Brown Christmas.) Read More »
Since the run-up to the release of Blue Sky Studios’ Ice Age in 2002, the best spokesman — spokesanimal? — for the film series has been a creature that can barely speak. The acorn-obsessed Scrat, a sabre-toothed squirrel, has starred in trailers and shorts and is one of the most consistently entertaining parts of the actual films. With the latest film in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift, hitting theaters in July 2012, Fox and Blue Sky are way ahead of the curve in getting the word out. The first part of the short Scrat’s Continental Crack-Up showed up way back in January of this year, and now we’ve got the conclusion. Check it out below. Read More »
