Good Grief, It's a CG Charlie Brown - Teaser Trailer for Blue Sky's Peanuts Film

Blue Sky Studios have finally released the teaser trailer for their upcoming CG adaptation of Charles Schulz's beloved Peanuts comics. And it's actually not half bad.

Sure, it's a little strange and disconcerting seeing Charlie Brown and Snoopy in 3D CGI, rather than the traditional hand-drawn animation that imbued them with so much charm hitherto, but there's still a lot of warmth to the little teaser. And, despite of the fact that it is CG, the animation is actually pretty good. Of course, the music doesn't hurt either. Check the trailer out below.

Peanuts is directed by Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!, Ice Age: Continental Drift), co-produced by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and opens on 6th November, 2015.


  1. I really like the animation, very true to the source and adds something to the CGI which I always love.

    I'm normally opposed to CGI adaptations of formerly 2D properties... but I think I might make an exception here. Despite the 3D modeling, the animation appears to be very charming and true to the comics and 2D shorts. It almost looks like pseudo stop-motion, which adds to its charm. Let's hope the final product in terms of story and execution match the animation's appeal.

  3. Plus, more Peanuts is always welcome!
