Movie Review – The Peanuts Movie (2015)

The Peanuts Movie, 2015

Directed by Steve Martino.

Featuring the voice talents of Bill Melendez, Noah Schnapp, Francesca Capaldi, Hadley Belle Miller, Alexander Garfin, Anastasia Bredikhina, Rebecca Bloom, Noah Johnston, Venus Schultheis, Mariel Sheets, A.J. Tecce, Kristin Chenoweth, and Trombone Shorty.

Snoopy embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home to win the love of his life.

In an age where comic-book characters created in a bygone era are one of (if not the) biggest commodity on the planet, it was inevitable that some of the most beloved and revered would make their leap onto the big-screen once again. Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang have never really gone away, with everything from Scrubs to Family Guy showcasing their love of the characters (Stewie and Brian

Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie (aka The Peanuts Movie) movie review: good grief

Of all the potential Charlie Brown movies Hollywood might have made, this might be the Charlie Brown-iest. That’s not necessarily a good thing. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source material (and I like it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Of all the potential Charlie Brown movies Hollywood might have made, this might be the Charlie Brown-iest. That’s not necessarily the best outcome in this situation. This may be the movie that Charlie Brown himself might have written, for himself as a hero… or at least as much as hero as Charlie Brown could be. (The Peanuts Movie was scripted in part by Charles Schulz’s son, Craig Schulz and grandson, Bryan Schulz.) Except Charlie Brown isn’t meant to be a hero, and he’s not meant to get any satisfaction. His eternal ache for resolution,

Movie Review – The Peanuts Movie (2015)

The Peanuts Movie, 2015.

Directed by Steve Martino.

Starring Bill Melendez, Noah Schnapp, Francesca Capaldi, Hadley Belle Miller, Alexander Garfin, Anastasia Bredikhina, Rebecca Bloom, Noah Johnston, Venus Schultheis, Mariel Sheets, A.J. Tecce, Kristin Chenoweth, and Trombone Shorty.

Synopsis:

Snoopy embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.

When adapting beloved material held to sky-high standards such as Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic strips to life on the silver screen, undoubtedly the most crucial aspect for success is keeping the look and style as similar as possible, even in the face of modern technology. This has of course been accomplished numerous times with various specials, but never before has the gang ventured out of hand-drawn territory.

The situation closely resembles the 2014 video game South Park: The Stick of Truth,

Film Review: ‘The Peanuts Movie’ Honors Legacy of Charlie Brown

Chicago – They didn’t screw it up, and that is good. Eschewing modern conventions or typical animation pop culture jokes, “The Peanuts Movie” honors its source (Charlie Brown and the gang) and its creator, Charles M. Schultz, in a joyous and nostalgic celebration.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The filmmakers – director Steve Martino (“Horton Hears a Who”) and writers Craig Schultz (Charles’s son), Bryan Schultz (grandson) and Cornelius Uliano – kept a philosophy of “Wwcsd” (What would Charles Schultz do?), and produced a animated feature that contains the best of what made “Peanuts” great. The look is as if the comic strip has sprung to life, especially in optional 3D, and the character voices and feel have the same warmth as the familiar TV specials (there are several references along the way to those treats as well). The story was incidental to the subplots that played like mini comic strips, featuring Good Ol’ Charlie Brown,

The Peanuts Movie Review

It’s not the great reboot, Charlie Brown!

Just over a month into the 65th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip, Charlie Brown and his pet beagle have returned in a new, syrupy sweet, 3D animated adventure. The Peanuts Movie features the reliable forlorn Charlie Brown suddenly lovestruck by the arrival of a new girl in school, while Snoopy daydreams about flying against the Red Baron and winning the heart of a poofy, pink puppy named Fifi (whose wordless squeaks are voiced by Kristin Chenoweth, for a reason, we assume).

Coming out over 15 years removed from Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz’s death and the end of his iconic comic strip, The Peanuts Movie feels like a relic from a bygone era of languid kids entertainment. Co-writers Craig Schulz (Charles’ son), Bryan Schulz (Charles’ grandson), and Cornelius Uliano (no known relation) retain the wholesome, Americana appeal of the original comics and cartoons – talent shows,

New The Peanuts Movie Trailer Introduces the New Kid in Town

A brand new trailer for The Peanuts Movie is here, and to be honest, it's pretty fantastic. I was a little concerned when news of this adaptation broke a while back but I'm feeling much better after this full-length trailer. Unlike some animated adaptations of beloved long-running properties, The Peanuts Movie seems to hit all the right notes and it feels like director Steve Martino has nailed the tone. The animation is great, treading into new territory with computer technology while offering up little tweaks here and there that serve as throwbacks to the original comics version (and the arrival of Pigpen is an absolute delight). The only thing that rubs the wrong way a bit in this trailer is the randomly inserted music, but that's always a tough nut to crack in these promotional pieces. Needless to say, this family film will be a big draw in the fall.

New The Peanuts Movie Trailer: Snoopy Takes to the Skies Again

A brand new trailer for The Peanuts Movie is here. The piece doesn’t include any concrete plot details and the bulk of it is that same high-flying sequence we saw in the previous trailer, but it’s well worth checking out for the charming new opening interaction between Woodstock and Snoopy. Plus, even though we’ve seen Snoopy soaring over Paris before, Flo Rida and Fitz’s “What I Like About You” has such a great feel-good vibe to it that you can’t help but to get swept up in the appeal of the material all over again. Hit the jump to catch the new The Peanuts Movie trailer. The film is due in theaters in 3D on November 6, 2015 and will feature the voices of Noah Schnapp, Hadley Belle Miller, Aj Tecce, Noah Johnston, Venus Schultheis, Alexander Garfin, Francesca Capaldi, Mar Mar, Mariel Sheets and Rebecca Bloom.

Fox Announces The Cast for 'The Peanuts Movie'

In celebration of Charles Schulz’s (the creator of Peanuts) birthday, 20th Century Fox has announced the voice cast of the upcoming animated film. Take a look below for the name of the actor and what character is he or she playing:

Noah Schnapp voices the role of Good ol’ Charlie Brown, the lovable loser who never gives up. The young actor recently filmed a role opposite Tom Hanks in director Steven Spielberg’s untitled Cold War thriller. Most recently, Noah wrapped work on the indie film We Only Know So Much, based on the book of the same title.

Hadley Belle Miller provides the voice for Lucy, known around the neighborhood (and by her little brother, Linus) for being crabby and bossy and humiliating Charlie Brown. Hadley’s voiceover credits include Sofia the First andJake and the Neverland Pirates, and she has appeared on stage and in commercials.

Aj Tecce voices Pig-Pen,

The Peanuts Movie Voice Cast Revealed

Fittingly, 20th Century Fox chose today to reveal The Peanuts Movie voice cast. The CG-animated feature comes from producer Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), director Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!), and writer Craig Schulz, the son of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. The footage we’ve seen thus far has been surprisingly promising, with the CG animation being done in a stylistic fashion. But when it comes to the voice cast, you won’t find any big movie stars here (though it’d be kind of great if someone like Will Ferrell or Tina Fey provided the “wah wa-wah”’s of the adults). The voice cast for the Peanuts Movie is mostly made up of young actors with experience in voiceover work, commercials, and kid-centric programming on The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. Noah Schnapp, who just wrapped a role in Steven Spielberg’s untitled Cold War thriller, takes the lead role of Charlie Brown,
