Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown And Snoopy Come Alive In 'Peanuts 3D': Video

Peanuts_3d

Good grief! Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the other characters of Charles Schulz's iconic comic strip Peanuts will make their big-screen reappearance in 3-D on November 2015. Surprisingly, it has been almost 35 years since the last Charlie Brown feature-length film, Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back!!!)

The film (which seems to have retained the comic's 2-D aesthetic) will be produced by Charles' son Craig Schulz and co-written by Craig's son Bryan. "With my father's work this is three generation of Schulzes on this film,” Craig says. “Our number one goal was always to be authentic to his work and legacy."

Not only will the film finally reveal the identity of Charlie's long time crush (ie. "the Little Red-Haired Girl") but it will also feature Snoopy flying once again as the World War I flying ace — watch out Red Baron!

Craig thinks that his father "would have embraced" the 3D technology. And co-producer Paul Feig reassures us, "Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking, we're in good hands."

Check out the teaser AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I wonder how they got around the CS dictum that the strip would not survive him.

  3. This seems complete unnecessary and unwanted.

  7. Snoopy was not the Red Baron. He was the WWI Flying Ace, a nemesis of the Red Baron.

  8. Heard the news and was very skeptical -- but the art style is so tasteful and welldone.

  11. Charlie Brown's hair is disturbing in 3-D.

  12. When I heard this was happening I was distressed. I have always had great memories of Peanuts. As a matter of fact, one of the last things my grandmother gave me was a collection of the complete works of Charles Schultz, which I cherish. However, having seen this trailer I am relieved that while technology changes, as do tastes, they seem to be approaching this with care and I am glad that it seems to be in the hands of people who live the material as much as the fans do.

  13. I am glad that Charles Schulz's family is protecting his legacy. This clip looks very much like the Peanuts I remember. I can't wait to see it and I hope that a new generation of youngsters grows to love it the way I did.
