When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears.
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the whole gang are back in a heartwarming story. While Charlie Brown is trying to accomplish something, a new girl with red hair arrives, and Charlie Brown falls in love. Now he tries to impress the red haired girl to make her feel like he's a winner, but Charlie Brown just can't do anything right. At the same time, Snoopy is writing a love story about a beautiful dog. Then Charlie Brown gets a perfect score on his standardized test, but there has been a mistake. Should he tell the truth or get the love of his love to like him? Can Charlie Brown get the girl to love her or will he remain a nothing?
The Beagle Scouts, Snoopy's bird friends who all resemble Woodstock, appear in the film as the pit crew for Snoopy's plane in the World War I Flying Ace sequences. The birds are named Conrad, Bill, Olivier and Harriet. In the comics, Harriet is generally portrayed as the toughest while Olivier (likely the bird who appears to mess up constantly in the movie) is the dumbest. See more »
Charlie Brown writes 1,000 words for his book report but when we see his book report it's only 2 pages. Way too little to hold 1,000 words. See more »
[In art class, Charlie Brown tries to make a flower out of a coat hanger, but ends up making a squiggle that looks like his one strand of hair]
Will you look at this? What a contemporary piece.
Nice use of space.

I really enjoy The Peanuts Movie. It reminds me of the classic Charlie Brown movies, but even better! Even though the Peanuts creator, Charles M. Schulz passed away in 2000, this movie is a tribute to his memory and the legacy that he left behind.
While the members of the Peanuts Gang look and act like their lovable selves, there are many updates to this film. The animation is much more detailed than the previous movies and viewers are able to watch it in 3D. There are many new upbeat songs in addition to the much loved tunes. "Better When I'm Dancin'" by Meghan Trainor is a great addition to the original songs.
The Peanuts Movie is about Charlie Brown trying to break his losing streak so the little Red Haired Girl (voiced by Disney's Francesca Capaldi) will view him differently than his friends do. He tries to change his luck in a dance contest, a talent show, flying a kite and writing a book report. Also, Snoopy tries to defeat the Red Baron in order to win the love of his life Fi Fi, voiced by Kristen Chenoweth.
My favorite character is Snoopy because he is very funny. His story is well written and filled with love, comedy and adventure. Some of the funniest characters are Lucy, Sally, Snoopy and Woodstock. They got great laughs from the audience including kids as young as three. All the voice talent perfectly suits their characters. Fans of Linus, Schroeder, Pig Pen, Peppermint Patty and all the others will not be disappointed.
The moral to this film is, "if you see yourself as a winner or a loser in life, you are probably going to act like one. If you think you are a winner, act like one and others might think so too."
I rate The Peanuts Movie 5 out of 5 stars because of the colorful animation and it being true to the original Peanuts Gang. I recommend this movie for ages 3 to 15 or any people who have enjoyed the other Peanuts movies. At the end of this film there is a 3 second clip. The credits are very long so be sure to stick around until the end.
