Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie

Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie

The characters of Charles M. Schulz's iconic and influential comic strip (which ran from 1950 to 2000) - Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy et al - return to the big screen, animated by Blue Sky Studios (Horton Hears a Who!). Co-written by Schulz's son and grandson.

Nothing ever seems to go Charlie Brown’s way. Try as he might, he can’t seem to avoid messing up in front of Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Sally, Pig-Pen and the rest of the kids on the block. But when someone new arrived to the neighbourhood, a little red-haired girl, Charlie Brown sees his chance to re-invent himself in front of someone who DOESN’T think he’s a blockhead.

Turning classic cartoon properties into big-budget features has produced films ranging from ‘pretty good’ (Mr. Peabody and Sherman) to ‘kill-it-with-a-pitchfork horrible’ (Alvin and the Chipmunks). These films almost always favour contemporary CGI styles rather than traditional animation techniques, lest they get woefully overlooked like 2011’s Winnie the Pooh. But with The Peanuts Movie, Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Rio, Epic) does both by staying true to Charles M. Schulz’s designs while giving them a fresh coat of visual innovation.

Review: The Peanuts Movie

I have grown up with Charlie Brown and the gang, thanks to my Mum. This is an 'OK' reinvention of the famous Schulz stories, with a modern twist. In order to appease the children of today the animation has been changed to a CGI style, while still doing its best to pay homage to the original style. Unfortunately though, it seems Charlie Brown has fallen...

The Peanuts Movie

The Peanuts Movie is really good. A mature and gorgeously animated film that both children and adults can enjoy. Charlie Brown is a relatable and sympathetic protagonist. If you love animated movies, definitely check this out. Grade: A-

This is true to the Peanuts strip and previous animated movies/show. Gentle, kind hearted. Perhaps not as funny as might have been, but highly recommended family film.

It's a bit startling, and undeniably refreshing, to see a children's movie that ... is driven by the small anxieties a real child might experience on a daily basis.

Overall, wry observation and pathos take precedence over crowd-pleasing slapstick, although some dreary pop songs prove a drag.

Perfectly retains the look and the feel of the original strip. But it moves with just enough pace and energy to make the stories work for a modern attention span.
