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, 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, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.
I am a big fan of Peanuts, knowing the names of even the more obscure characters, such as Violet and Frieda. However, with a wonderful opportunity to explore, the animators resulted to reusing old stories: The Psychiatric Booth, The Football, The Ice Skating Whip, The Little Red Haired Girl, World Flying Ace, etc.
Needless to say, I dozed off a couple of times, though the 3D characters was unique and made their one dimensional facial features kind of odd to see.
Cute, but missed opportunity.
