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. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. 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.
This year, Schulz’s iconic strip “Peanuts” is celebrating its 65th Anniversary as part of the fabric of our culture. On July 31st, 1968 Charles Schulz introduced Franklin, the first African American character, to appear alongside Charlie Brown and his friends.
