Charlie Brown and the “Peanuts” gang are coming to the big-screen.
Charles Schulz’ beloved characters are starring in their own animated film scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 25, 2015. That year marks the 65th anniversary of the “Peanuts” comic strip and the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first of the gang’s many heart warming TV specials.
The currently untitled film will be directed by Steve Martino, co-director of Horton Hears a Who and Ice Age: Continental Drift, will direct the “Peanuts” film.
It all remains in the family with Schulz’ son Craig and grandson Bryan co-writing the screenplay with Cornelius Uliano, and the three are also are producing the film. In honor of Halloween what better than to end with a clip of my favorite Peanuts TV special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
