We’ve got yet another new trailer trailer for THE PEANUTS MOVIE, which shows a few new scenes, and really does a nice job spotlighting all the popular characters from that universe. There are few things from my childhood more precious and treasured to me than Charles Schulz’s comic strip characters from the Peanuts series. I watched all the TV shows, read the strip religiously, even had plush Snoopy and Woodstock dolls. I adored those characters, and still do. 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky had announced they were going to make a PEANUTS movie, which in many ways was more worrisome than exciting. It was said they were going to make the film CG and in 3D… and keeping in mind the squiggly line drawings of Schulz, trying to imagine CG versions of Charlie Brown and Snoopy was next to impossible. Back in March we finally saw what they had been up to, thanks to a short but sweet teaser trailer. I’m happy to say it looked great then, and it still looks great now. If this is a taste of what we can expect I’m definitely more than a little relieved. Paul Feig (BRIDESMAIDS) is producing with Steve Martino (ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT) directing. The voices of Snoopy and Woodstock will actually be the late Bill Melendez, the man who directed the original Peanuts cartoons, as Melendez had recorded several test sessions for both characters. One thing that’s been said repeatedly is this material would be handled in a respectful manner, and the end result would honor the work of Schulz. Feig has stated “Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking, we’re in good hands.” Take a look for yourself and tell us what you think in the comments.

Oh, and in case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen this on EVERY social media site already, you can now create your own #PeanutsMovie avatar here –

In PEANUTS, a 3D, CGI animated comedic adventure, Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace! – embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.

PEANUTS opens November 6, 2015
