It's Christmas in New Images from 2015's Animated 'Peanuts' Movie
Back in the spring, we got our first look at Blue Sky Animation's adaptation of the classic Charles Schulz comic strip Peanuts. It wasn't much except a glimpse at Charlie Brown with his loveable and occasionally mischievous dog Snoopy. But now some new images have surfaced showing off the rest of the gang, including Lucy, Linus, Sally, Peppermint Patty and more. No sign of Pigpen, but it does appear we get to spend Christmas with the gang. Could there be a new tale based around the holiday outside of the famous "A Charlie Brown Christmas" animated special that will be playing on TV again soon? It would seem so. Look!
Here's the new images from Steve Martino's animated Peanuts from USA Today:
Peanuts is directed bey Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Horton Hears a Who!) and written by Craig & Bryan Schulz (sons of comic creator Charles Schulz) and newcomer Cornelius Uliano. For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz's comic strip will be making their big-screen debut in 3D. No voice cast or story details have been revealed yet, but 20th Century Fox has set the animated for release just in time for the 65th anniversary of the comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the Christmas special "A Charlie Brown Christmas," on November 6th, 2015.
