Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Pig Pen, etc. have become beloved characters for several generations via television specials like "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." Now, they're making their first film, "The Peanuts Movie" — and it looks as light-hearted, sweet, and adorably funny as the classics we grew up with.
"The Peanuts Movie" updates the characters and story a bit — but not too much. There are modern songs, like DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," but the humor is still gentle and timeless (no snarky texts from Sally). The animation, now done with computers, looks great, but not too flashy and cutting-edge, and we'd wager that Charlie Brown and crew have long lives on the big screen.
"The Peanuts Movie" opens in theaters November 6.
