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.
Fans have been anticipating this upcoming feature – from 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, and helmed by Steve Martino (Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears A Who) – for years. And though it might be jarring to see computer-generated versions of Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Snoopy, hardcore Schulzites shouldn’t worry: Producer Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) promises USA Today that the comic’s beloved characters will come to the big screen with their personalities intact.
“Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking,” he vows. “We’re in good hands.”
Peanuts arrives on November 6, 2015, marking the 65th anniversary of the comic itself – as well as the 50th anniversary of the first airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
