"Peanuts" animated movie in the works

Peanuts Gang Movie

Good grief! Charles Schulz’ beloved “Peanuts” comic strip is being adapted into an animated feature film.

Blue Sky Studios, makers of the commercially successful “Ice Age” movies, will produce the yet-to-be-named movie, tentatively set for release in November 2015.

The cartoonist’s son, Craig Schulz, will cowrite the screenplay with Schulz’s grandson Brian.

“We have been working on this project for years,” Craig Schulz said. “We finally felt the time was right, and the technology is where we need it to be, to create this film.”

The film’s release will coincide with the 65th anniversary of the “Peanuts” comic strip — which debuted in October 1950 — and the 50th anniversary of the Peanuts gang’s beloved first TV special, 1965’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

The comic strip left the funny pages in 2000, the year Schulz died.

The Schulz family said its involvement will ensure that no one pulls the football away and trips up the Peanuts legacy.

And Blue Sky is no stranger to kids adaptations. In addition to the “Ice Age” saga, the studio cranked out “Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who,” which made almost $300 million in 2008.

Charlie, Snoopy, Lucy and Linus have starred in dozens of TV specials over the decades (“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” etc), but they only hit the big screen four times, most recently in the 1980 film, “Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!).”

I am going to cry tears of joy. IDK how I feel about CGI though.

Stop. Ruining. My. Childhood.

on the real tho, I loved Peanuts.

I hope they don't fuck it up.

My great uncle worked on the animation for "A Charlie Brown Christmas"


Yeah, my mom has some of the original cells they used for the movie. It's so weird to see them and then watch the movie. Even with today's technology, I'm still fascinated by hand-drawn cartoons.

OMG! It's my favourite, actually "The Great Pumpkin" is my favourite but "Christmas" is a very close second. I wished they would find voice actors that matched the voices from those specials.

And they need to bring back the "CBS SPECIAL PRESENTATION" logo

that's so cool! a charlie brown christmas is my fave. the soundtrack is flawfree.

CGI? I bet this will look really weird.

ugh tell me about it. I'm so sick of it.

On another note: I wished this commercial would run again for Christmas.

As soon as I saw "Ice Age", I knew this was going to be shit. FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

I loved A Boy Named Charlie Brown as a kid.

This, I'm weary of.

It was so sad the way Schultz died the day before his final strip was published.

Well, at least it's not Seth MacFarlane doing it

I just got a shirt today. Anyways it would be better animated. Oh and I still watch "A Charlie Brown Christmas" every year.

3D animation?


I love peanuts more than anything. I hope to god they don't over modernize it or make the kids act older than they are which is a problem with a lot of children's shows these days. They better not mess up the flawless music either.
