More than 30 years have passed since your favorite black-and-white beagle, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang graced the big screen — which may be hard to believe. But that changes next year.

Based on the comic strip created by the late Charles Schulz, Peanuts has lived on largely through newspaper comics, MetLife commercials, reruns of classic TV specials (A Charlie Brown Christmas) and the occasional viral video. Throughout all these incarnations, however, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and their friends have always been portrayed as 2D, hand-drawn characters. In a new Peanuts film slated for 2015 from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios (which brought you Ice Age), their entire world enters 3D.

Even in this brief yet chill-inducing teaser trailer, you can see the volume of Charlie Brown's little wisp of brown hair and how Snoopy's fur resembles actual fur. Even Snoopy's red dog house looks touchable. The effect will be even more extreme when the film hits theaters in eye-popping 3D.

Peanuts Worldwide, LLC, the company that controls the Peanuts franchise, is keeping mum on the plot. Even the movie's IMDB page, which lists the director as Steve Martino, who directed Ice Age: Continental Drift, and the producers as Charles Schulz's son Craig and grandson Bryan, is missing a plot description.

Craig Schulz told USA Today that the family has been very careful with Schulz's legacy since the comic strip artist's death in 2000. But now, a film is "long overdue," Schulz said. "The fans have been asking for a long time, but we held off until the time was right."

    As per producer Paul Feig, he intends to preserve (Peanuts creator Charles) Schulz’s “sweet optimism” - that means, “Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking, we’re in good hands.”

    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, developed with the latest breakthrough in 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.

    Watching Peanuts come together has brought on a flood of childhood memories for the filmmakers. Because of the deep bench of Peanuts characters, the movie won't be introducing newcomers. In addition to Charlie Brown's crush-worthy Little Red Haired Girl and Snoopy's love Fifi, fans can expect Snoopy's brother Olaf, as well as a whole group of Beagle Scouts. In a recent interview with USA Today, producer Paul Feig shares, "You love being back in that world," "And you immediately want to grab every kid you know and go, 'Oh, my God, you've got to watch this!' "

    “The Peanuts Movie” (3D) will open in cinemas November 2015 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros

    BLUE SKY’S LATEST TRAILER RELEASE FOR “SNOOPY AND CHARLIE BROWN THE PEANUTS MOVIE”
    via press release

    SNOOPY%20AND%20CHARLIE%20BROWN%20THE%20PEANUTS%20MOVIE_zpsl2twsrzt.jpg

    The latest trailer for the much-awaited movie animation of all time, “Peanuts Movie” has just been released from Blue Sky and 20th Century Fox:


    “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz once described himself as "born to draw comic strips." A Minneapolis native, he was just two days old when an uncle nicknamed him "Sparky," after the horse Spark Plug from the "Barney Google" comic strip. Throughout his youth, he and his father shared a Sunday-morning ritual of reading the funnies. After serving in the army during World War II, Schulz got his first big break in 1947 when he sold a cartoon feature called "Li'l Folks" to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. In 1950, Schulz met with United Feature Syndicate, and on Oct. 2 of that year, "Peanuts," so named by the syndicate, debuted in seven newspapers. Schulz died in Santa Rosa, Calif., Feb. 12, 2000 – just hours before his last original strip was to appear in Sunday papers.

    Charles Schulz drew the most popular and influential comic strip of all time, which was read everyday by 355 million people in 75 countries. In addition to the famous strip, Peanuts holiday television specials such as “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” have won Emmy’s and continue to be among the highest rated prime time TV specials.

    Craig Schulz, President, Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, commented, “We have been working on this project for years. We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film. I am thrilled we will be partnering with Blue Sky/Fox to create a Peanuts movie that is true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father."

    A Blue Sky animation and 20th Century Fox presentation, “Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie” will open January 8, 2016 in theatres nationwide in the Philippines.

    CHARLES M. SCHULZ’S LEGACY DEBUTS ON THE BIG SCREEN IN “SNOOPY AND CHARLIE BROWN THE PEANUTS MOVIE”

    via press release

    PEANUTS_PUB_STILL_B02_f2.0.jpg

    Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts Gang finally 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, “Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie” will prove that every underdog has his day.

    It was on October 2, 1950, Charles M. Schulz introduced the characters of Charlie Brown, Shermy and Patty in just seven newspapers, launching a 50-year journey for the cartoonist that forever changed the landscape of popular culture and humor. Schulz’s comic strip was hailed as one of the greatest of the twentieth century, and his characters launched a bona-fide industry, while providing a much-needed voice for the underdog, via Charlie Brown.

    Over the years, many studios had pursued a big screen version of “Peanuts,” but the Schulz family resisted. Their thinking began to change when director Steve Martino, highly regarded pioneer in the field of computer animation who along with Michael Thurmeier, directed the global blockbuster “Ice Age: Continental Drift” expressed his passion and ideas for the project. Moreover, Craig Schulz had admired Martino’s work, including the way his film Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! was true to the style of Dr. Seuss.

    In 2012, Schulz phoned Fox Animation Studios executive Ralph Millero to say that he had a script that he had written with his son Bryan Schulz and the younger Schulz’s writing partner, Cornelius Uliano. (The three screenwriters also serve as producers.) Moving with the speed of one of those fastballs that always seem to whiz by Charlie Brown, Millero took the script to Fox Animation Studios president Vanessa Morrison, who immediately set the wheels in motion. Blue Sky and Fox had accomplished what every major studio had attempted: secure the film rights to one of the world’s most coveted properties.

    The approach and care that Martino showed impressed the Schulz family. “We were very lucky to get Steve on board,” recalls Craig Schulz. “Over the years, we had dealt with many people who would come in say they’ve grown up with “Peants”, and that they had a great story. But it’s not easy to step in the world my dad created, and to understand how he drew the strip. Steve Martino got it.”

    To say that Martino felt some pressure would be an understatement. “I thought about Schroeder and his little toy piano, and on the day we were entrusted with these icons, I felt like I had a grand piano on my shoulders. I had artists lining up outside my door!” Adds supervising animator Nick Bruno: “It was the first time my dad called with an opinion on how not to screw up a project of ours!”

    Rounding out the producing team is one of the film industry’s most respected filmmakers, the multi-talented (and lifelong Peanuts fan) Paul Feig. “I almost fainted when Ralph Millero approached me to work on the film,” jokes Feig. “It was like getting the phone call to come on board for the re-make of ‘Star Wars.’"

    A wholesome movie for the whole family reverberating with so much positive values and vibes that dad and mom will definitely approve!

    Best seen on the big screen replete of Charles M. Schulz’s heart warming themes and Blue Sky Studios’ impressive animation details, “Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie” hits cinemas January 8 nationwide (Philippines
