20th Century Fox have released a teaser trailer for what they hope will be one of the biggest hits of next year, Snoopy & Charlie Brown: A Peanuts Movie. Known simply as Peanuts in the Us, the film is being produced by Blue Sky Studios, whose recent hits have included Rio and the four Ice Age movies. Steve Martino, who directed the fourth chapter, Continental Drift, is at the helm.
Charles M Schulz’s school-age Peanuts crew have been American icons for over half a century. There have been regular TV specials in the States since 1965’s A Charlie Brown Christmas, but this will be their first big screen outing for 35 years. The first Peanuts movie, A Boy Named Charlie Brown was released in 1969. Another three movies followed, concluding in 1980 with Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!), which saw the gang travel to Europe, where Snoopy enjoyed a »

I’m incredibly fond of Peanuts. I never miss A Charlie Brown Christmas, and I can’t imagine decorating my tree without ornaments of Snoopy and the gang.But some of those 80′s TV specials were stinkers, so I was apprehensive about a new computer animated feature film, especially without Charles Schulz to guide it. Still, this movie does have three generations of Schulzes behind it, so that’s a good sign.
One look at this trailer and my fears melted away. Computer animated Snoopy dancing is a wonderful thing. There is nothing in the world that can’t be made better by Snoopy dancing, or the love between Charlie Brown and his dog.
Can I buy my tickets now?

You can now see the first teaser trailer for the CG-animated film, which opens with a 2001: A Space Odyssey gag centered around poor ol' Charlie Brown's hairless melon.

If you’re anything like me, hearing the classic piano strains of the Peanuts theme is enough to send you deep into nostalgia — and the new trailer for Charles Schulz’s animated classic is designed to do just that.

As Hollywood continues on its quest to squeeze millions out of our childhoods, one of the most divisive and risky cinematic ventures being undertaken is a cinematic update of the seminal comic-strip Peanuts. The last time that the comic, which follows Charlie Brown and his loyal canine companion Snoopy, graced cinemas was in 1980, so there’s a lot riding on the success of this feature-length update.
Today, we get our first look at the unique animation style being employed by Blue Sky Studios for the upcoming film with two images (one above and one below) and a teaser trailer. The CGI on display is sure to divide fans, but I’m on board with what Blue Sky is showing us so far.
Producer Craig Shulz (the son of comic creator Charles Shulz, who died in 2000) doesn’t have a problem with the new animation style and believes that Charles himself »

You can mark your calendar based on which Peanuts television special is being broadcast. Most families still park themselves in front of their tubes and watch the classics: "It's the Great Pumpkin", "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving." And now, we all can look forward, or dread, the new feature-length film that is currently being produced. There hasn't been one of those since 1980's Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown. The good news is that the film is being cared for by Charles Shulz's son, Craig. He's producing this 3-D/CG animated feature. The screenplay was written by Craig's son Bryan, along with his writing partner Cornelius Uliano. Steve Martino is the director. He previously helmed Ice Age: Continental Drift. 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 »
