If “The Peanuts Movie” is supposed to be hitting my nostalgia button for my younger days, reading beat-up paperback collections of Charles M. Schulz‘s iconic strip and tuning in for the various Charlie Brown holiday specials, it’s missing the mark. I’m largely indifferent to this glossy movie, so consider me fully nonplussed about this new trailer.
Yep, the entire gang is here — Charlie, Snoopy, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Linus, Sally, Pigpen, Schroeder, Woodstock, etc. — for the 3D animated tale that finds our downer hero and his dog each on their own individual “epic quest.” Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
“The Peanuts Movie” opens on November 6th. Watch below.
