The Peanuts gang is coming to a theater near you on November 6, 2015. While many may be most familiar with the Charlie Brown Halloween and Christmas specials, there have been several feature length animated adventures. With the success of other recent animated movies and revivals, it makes perfect sense that we'd see the Peanuts on the large screen. Of course, that means they'll be getting an upgrade in terms of the animation.
Check out the teaser trailer from 20th Century Fox.
I have to admit, I'm a little on the fence with this direction. Yes, this is just a teaser trailer but moving towards a CG route, while expected, is a little sad. I did show this to my daughter before she headed off to school and she showed some interest. So it might just be the older generation, who the movie might not necessarily be geared towards, that will have a problem with the change. I do like the slight mix of the CG with the hand drawn details.
What are your thoughts on the Peanuts coming to the big screen next year and how do you feel about this look?
