"Peanuts" is back! Well, almost.
 
Blue Sky Studios—the makers of animated family-friendly hits like the "Ice Age" and "Rio" franchises, and a Connecticut Magazine "success story"—is teaming with Twentieth Century Fox to produce the return of the "Peanuts" gang to the big screen. The upcoming movie will be a computer-generated and in 3-D style.
 
Unfortunately, the full movie isn't due until 2015, to coincide with the 65th anniversary of Charles Schulz's beloved comic strip, but the studio today released a minute-long teaser trailer featuring Charlie Brown and Snoopy, which is already generating some great buzz.

The look of the animation is great, and it's awesome to hear the classic music being included.

In a blog post on "Peanuts" Blue Sky says:

Charles Schulz drew the most popular and influential comic strip of all time, which was read everyday by 355 million people in 75 countries. In addition to the famous strip, Peanuts holiday television specials such as “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” have won Emmy’s and continue to be among the highest rated prime time TV specials.
Steve Martino will direct the “Peanuts” feature; previously, he brought to the big screen (with Jimmy Hayward) Fox/Blue Sky’s “Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!”  Martino also directed (with Michael Thurmeier) Fox’s recent box-office smash “Ice Age: Continental Drift.”  The screenplay is by Craig Schulz and the writing team of Bryan Schulz & Cornelius Uliano.  Craig Schulz and Bryan Schulz, respectively Mr. Schulz’s son and grandson, along with Uliano are producing.
