Such are the times we live in. “Peanuts” is coming to the big screen for a whole new generation of kids to fall in love with, and then buy officially licensed products, which means that for old codgers like me, Charlie Brown will never be the same. The hand drawn animation of yore is now replaced with 3D CGI and Vince Guaraldi. 20th Century Fox, what have you done….
While the new trailer for “Peanuts” opens with with pianist’s familiar “Linus and Lucy,” someone decided that song is now passé. And so the trailer quickly changes to a more contemporary replacement: “What I Like About You” by Flo Rida featuring Fitz. We weep for the youth of today. Anyway, here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz’s timeless “Peanuts” comic strip will be making their big-screen debut; like they’ve never been seen before in a CG-Animated Feature film in 3D.
“Peanuts” opens on November 6, 2015. Watch below. And good news, the “Linus and Lucy” returns by the trailer’s end.
