As I grew up on all of these classic shorts starring Charlie Brown and his friends, I just had to do a broadcast that announced how “The Peanuts Movie” is opening up in theaters near you.
Premise: Snoopy goes up against his nemesis, the Red Baron, while Charlie Brown tries to win the affection of the Little Red-Haired Girl, who has just moved to the neighborhood. It is set to be the fifth full-length feature film to be based on the comic, and the first feature film based on the characters in 35 years. The film will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the comic strip, and is scheduled to be released on November 6, 2015. The film sees Charlie Brown go on a life-changing quest

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I found the trailer bringing me back to those times sitting in front of the television watching the antics of Charlie Brown and his friends as they quested for the Great Pumpkin or sought the perfect Christmas Tree and so forth. I think this is going to be quite the family flick and since so many friends in my age group have younger children and some even grandchildren at this point, this is something that they will be able to take them too. When I first learned that this film was coming out I dug my old newspaper comic strip collections featuring Charlie Brown and wow did they hold up after all these years. Pure entertainment is what I am expecting from this film and I hope it does not let us all down considering the legacy that Charles Schultz left us with. What do you readers think? Is this something you think you will see? Come on, I will not judge since I am thinking of seeing it myself in the cinema as opposed to waiting for home video release.
