On November 25, 2015, just in-time for the 65th Anniversary of the debut of the PEANUTS comic strip and the 50th Anniversary of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, the iconic PEANUTS Gang will make their big-screen debut. Earlier today it was announced that Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios have acquired rights to make a feature film based on the famous characters by the late Charles Schulz. As a Dad that has previously made special trips to Hallmark stores to acquire a plush SNOOPY for his daughter, you can bet that I’ll be taking the munchkins to see this. 

“We have been working on this project for years. We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film. I am thrilled we will be partnering with Blue Sky/Fox to create a Peanuts movie that is true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father.” – Craig Schulz, President, Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates

From the Official Press Release:

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.
