The Peanuts Movie updates a classic but doesn’t stray from the charm of Charles Schultz vision.
Illustrator Charles Schultz first published his comic strip Peanuts in 1952. He went on to create almost 18,000 strips until his death in 2000. His work was distributed and published around the globe and became a phenomenon. Peanuts made a huge impression on me, especially Charlie Brown’s companion, Snoopy, or as I called him ‘Noopy’, because even at an age before I could speak clearly, I was in love with that stupid little dog. My Snoopy drinking flask in my early years of school was a prized possession.
Now the creators of Ice Age and Rio, along with 20th Century Fox bring Peanuts to the big screen in an updated version of the classic that stays true to the sentiment and tone of the original.
Peanuts will hit cinemas in November 2015.
Snoopy embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.
