Peanuts (called Snoopy and Charlie Brown: A Peanuts Movie in the UK) is an upcoming 3D CGI animated comedy film based on Peanuts that will be released on November 6, 2015, around the sixty-fifth anniversary of the debut of the comic strip and the fiftieth anniversary of the television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Written and produced by Charles M. Schulz's son, Craig, his grandson, Bryan, and Cornelius Uliano, it will be animated by 20th Century Fox's Blue Sky Studios, and directed by Steve Martino, the director of Horton Hears a Who! and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
The plot is currently unknown at this time, but articles confirm that Charlie Brown and Snoopy will be the main protagonists and that it will involve their love interests: the Little Red-Haired Girl and Fifi, so it is apparently a romance film.
The teaser trailer for the movie was released on March 18, 2014, along with the official website and logo for the movie.
The full trailer was released online on November 18, 2014 and hit theatres on Thanksgiving Day, November 27.
