Blue Sky Studios, the Fox subsidiary behind the Ice Age and Rio franchises, kicks off the year with another trailer for The Peanuts Movie, the CG-animated adaptation of Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip.
It's effectively the same as the teaser released before the holidays, only with the Christmas-themed bookends removed: Gone are the Christmas lights and the troupe of little yellow birds, replaced by scenes of Woodstock playing mechanic to Snoopy's World War I Flying Ace, who pursues his arch-nemesis the Red Baron through the skies above Paris. Again, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang are relegated to a cameo at the end.
Directed by Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!), The Peanuts Movie arrives in 3D on Nov. 6.
