A new teaser trailer for "Peanuts," the big-screen, 3-D, CGI take on the classic comics by Charles Schulz, is here, and while it's short on plot, it's stuffed with the characters you know and love.
The clip largely focuses on Snoopy, who takes flight and flees from the iconic Red Baron character, sailing his doghouse into the clouds and around the Eiffel Tower. That sequence is bookended by his sidekick Woodstock trying desperately to erect an elaborate Christmas light show on Snoopy's doghouse, a nod to the film's planned release during the 2015 holiday season.
There's only a short glimpse of Charlie Brown and the rest of his "Peanuts" cohorts, including Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie, but the teaser makes it count, featuring Chuck's "blockhead" literally blocking the rest of the group's view of the trailer. He spills his popcorn all over himself for good measure, too, invoking an exasperated "Good grief." It's nice to see some things never change.
"Peanuts," featuring archival recordings of Bill Melendez -- who voiced characters in the original animated "Peanuts" TV specials -- hits theaters November 6, 2015.
