My first reaction to almost any remake is that it’s going to be crap. I’ve been right close to 90% of the time. I was very skeptical when I first saw the artwork for the new Peanuts movie, but I’m actually starting to warm up to it. I’m still a little worried that the studio doesn’t seem to want to give us much of Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang and insists on just hammering us with Snoopy vs the Red Baron, but I’m guessing that we’ll see more as we get closer to release.
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.
