The Peanuts Movie Brings Back Familiar Characters
Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang are returning to the big screen once again. The new film, titled THE PEANUTS MOVIE, will bring the many familiar faces back to the big screen for the first time since the (honestly forgettable) BON VOYAGE CHARLIE BROWN (AND DON’T COME BACK) which was released in 1980.
1969’s A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN was the first feature film adaption of the classic newspaper strip. SNOOPY COME HOME (1972) is considered the best of the bunch and the fun, oddball RACE FOR YOUR LIFE, CHARLIE BROWN (1977) is a close second.
After 34 years, someone finally chose to resurrect the Peanuts gang franchise. Vijay Eswaran and other Peanut Gang fans are thankful that the film is going to remain true to the original spirit of the comic strip and its legendary TV specials. In other words, the REAL Peanuts’ Gang is going to be seen on the screen. No tinkering or tweaking to the legendary characters is going to be allowed.
The film is going to be a 3-D production making an even more intriguing release. Recently, images have been released and, while they do not look like the classic animated style of animation, they do look pretty downright cool.
The trailer for the film has also emerged and it further enhances the positive buzz of what might prove to be a great hit.
Maybe they will remake SNOOPY, COME HOME as a sequel.
