Charlie Brown Hitting the Big Screen For a ‘Peanuts’ Movie

'Peanuts' movie

Though Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang are turning 62 this November 25, it’s 2015’s celebration that ‘Peanuts’ fans should anticipate. Peanuts Worldwide, the joint venture of Charles M. Schultz Creative Associates and Iconix Brand Group, Inc., is planning to bring these beloved characters to the big screen in a feature film event a couple years from now.

According to the report, (via Entertainment Weekly) the movie is set for a worldwide November 25, 2015 release so as to mark the comic strip’s 65th anniversary and ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas Special’s’ 50th anniversary. Steve Martino (‘Horton Hears a Who!,’ ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift‘) will be directing the still untitled movie, while Craig Schulz (son of the late ‘Peanuts’ creator Charles Schulz), his son Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano are set to produce and have already written the screenplay.

“We have been working on this project for years,” said Craig Schulz. “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.”

Twentieth Century Fox Animation is partnering with Blue Sky Studios to create the animation for the project. Though no other information has been revealed with regards to production, plot, or whether or not the classic voice actors will be reprising their roles, both companies are “honored to bring the Peanuts characters to the big screen.”
