Snoopy and Charlie: A Peanuts Movie trailer is released

The Peanuts gang will be hitting the big screen – but there’s a bit of a wait.

The release date is set for November 2015 and although Peanuts creator, Charles Schulz, has passed away, his son and producer, Craig Schulz, says the movie will be handled with respect.

“We handle it very respectfully. We knew we wanted this movie to be bigger than any kind of TV special. To do that, we had to kind of go to the boundaries of where I would ever let anyone go in the Peanuts world," says Schulz in an interview with USA Today.

While the plot is being kept a secret, Schulz confirmed the little-red-haired girl that Charlie Brown has been lusting after will have a significant role in the movie.

Schulz says, "She looks wonderful, but people will have to wait a year and a half to see her."

This will also be the first movie role for Snoopy’s love-interest, a poodle named Fifi.

"In the film Fifi is going to be a great character," says Schulz.

Other than a taste of what Snoopy and Charlie Brown will look like in 3D, the trailer doesn’t give much away.

But fans of the comic strip have nothing to worry about. 


USA Today reports, Snoopy won’t begin to talk.

"Snoopy laughs and snickers - that's how he communicates," says director Steve Martino. 

"He's the master of pantomime. It's emotion conveyed through movement." 

He says the movie will return to Peanuts classic locations such as the skating pond and his house.

And even the sign on Lucy's psychiatrist booth will still say five cents.
