While there are some people who are decidedly afraid of their childhoods being ruined by Hollywood taking on something they grew up with (see the divisive reaction to “Jurassic World” last weekend), only you can let a movie spoil your memories. And thus, you have two choices: roll with the CGI 3D “The Peanuts Movie” or….well, don’t. But a new trailer is here for the new generation of kids ready to find out who Charlie Brown and his pals are.

Steve Martino directs the big screen adventure of the Charles Schulz created characters which features the elements older adults will recognize, and updated mostly tastefully for contemporary kid crowds. That said, the choice of The Who to power the trailer is a bit odd. Anyway, 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. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. 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.
