Hey guys. Are you a Snoopy fan? Do you love Charlie Brown? Are you a reader of the amazing Charles Schulz's Peanuts comic panels? Me too! And it looks like our greatest dreams seem to be coming true:
Wow. Is it just me or does it not perfectly capture the essence of the source material? From Snoopy flying his Sopwith Camel to the slapstick with Woodstock, all you could possibly ask for is here. We even get a short clip of Charlie Brown being... well, Charlie Brown and we even get to hear him say his signature "Good grief." Not to mention this snapshot of all our favourite characters!
Off the top of my head I can see: Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Sally, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Franklin, Marcie and Peppermint Patty. And that's just to name a few (because there's way too many to name them all).
If that doesn't make you excited then nothing will. Even the animation feels crisp and perfectly suited to Peanuts. When I heard it was going to be a 3D animation, I admit, I was annoyed but the original teaser trailer (which you can see here) put that all to rest and this new full trailer has completely obliterated any concerns. If I were to have one gripe, it's that Charlie Brown sounds a little different than I imagined, but even then, the voice he does have suits him well. Even the music brings the charm of the comic strips to life in a way I didn't feel was possible. What I also really like (you may have noticed that I really loved this trailer) is how they haven't chickened out of the source material and made Snoopy talk. He still looks set to remain mostly mute in terms of what people hear, although we won't know that for sure until the film comes out.
From the look of it, the movie seems to be taking a Christmas setting, which is awesome because a lot of my favourite panels of the comic strips took place at Christmas, with the snow giving beautiful artwork and the Christmas spirit making for some genuinely heartfelt moments.
But, what do you guys think of the new Peanuts trailer? Were you always a fan? Are you looking forward to it anyway?
Whatever your thoughts, feel free to let me know in the comments, and until next time guys, enjoy you lives!
