Snoopy and Charlie Brown star in first trailer for ‘The Peanuts Movie’ – watch

3D computer-animated comedy starring Charles Schulz's characters opens in cinemas next year

The first full-length trailer for The Peanuts Movie has been unveiled – and features glimpses of the new CGI versions of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Woodstock, Linus and Lucy.

The Peanuts Movie, a 3D computer-animated comedy starring Charles Schulz’s much-loved comic strip characters, is set to open in cinemas on November 6, 2015.

The film has been directed by Steve Martino, who previously helmed Ice Age: Continental Drift. The script was co-written by Craig and Bryan Schulz, Charles Schulz’s son and grandson.

Written and illustrated by the late Charles Schulz, Peanuts ran for over 17,000 original comic strips between 1950 and 2000, with the last one running the day after Schulz passed away. The franchise has already spawned four previous animated films and countless TV cartoons, as well as spin-off albums, video games and theme park rides.
