First Teaser Trailer, Images Arrive For ‘Peanuts’ Movie

Fox Family Entertainment and BlueSky Studio have debuted the first teaser trailer and images for the CG-animated Peanuts movie. Scheduled for release on Nov. 6, 2015, it will be the first time Charles Schulz’s beloved characters have appeared in a feature since 1980’s Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!).

“It’s long overdue,” Schulz’s son Craig, who’s producing the film, tells USA Today. “The fans have been asking for a long time, but we held off until the time was right.”

Peanuts is directed by Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift) from a script by Craig Schulz’s son Bryan and his writing partner Cornelius Uliano.

“We’re going to fly with Snoopy in his fantasy world,” Martino explains. “We have a bigger canvas. Bill Melendez got Snoopy off the ground in the TV specials. We’re going to take it a step further.”
