"The Peanuts Movie" delivers a classic comic moment in this latest clip, which depicts Lucy Van Pelt convincing Charlie Brown to kick the football, only to pull it away -- once again! -- at the last moment.
The scene also highlights the 3D-animated movie's "hand-drawn" touches that hark back to Charles M. Schulz's beloved comic strips -- here, the sound effect and the motion lines -- which stand in stark contrast to Lucy's highly detailed textured hair.
Directed by Steve Martino (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”) and produced by Paul Feig, the film follows Snoopy as he goes up against his nemesis the Red Baron and Charlie Brown as he tries to win the affection of the Little Red-Haired Girl.
Written by Cornelius Uliano with Schulz’s sons Craig and Bryan, “The Peanuts Movie” opens Friday.
