    Because animated movies take a looooong time to work on... animation isn't something that you can just do overnight, it takes a lot of time, and a lot of patience... in fact, 2015... that actually sounds about average for an animated movie, it usually takes about a couple of years or so... sometimes even longer, I think someone at Pixar once said they usually spend up to four years working on their movies.

    Plus, it's to coincide with the anniversary of the strip (65th I think).

    ^THIS. They should just keep them in 2D, their designs would work better that way...And we need more traditional movies! :I

    The unfortunate truth is nobody is going to animate anything 2D anymore: they push for CGI because it's "quicker", "easier", more "economical", among other things... people are always going to cut corners in any way possible, they'll always take the cheaper and easier route... of course, the quality suffers in the process sometimes, but they don't care, because they're saving time and money.

    There's a very good chance this will be a CGI film, trouble is, there's no way these characters would look good in CGI. Ever see Snoopy toys? They have those weird flat eyes because he looks strange in turn around...


    And when we usually see Snoopy, he's in some weird 3/4ths view with both his eyes on one side of his head.

    That's not going to work in a 3-D based animation.

    There's nothing to make fun of about Peanuts... other than the fact a bunch of 6-9 year olds have such an evolved sense of philosophy, psychology, and existentialism. And religion in Linus's case. And the fact that everyone but Snoopy is neurotic as heck.

    Agreed, but remakes just rarely manage to capture the spirit for me. At that point it's a totally different franchise now surviving, not the original. The original is still being forgotten.

    The peanuts are going to have their own movie? That's great!

    That was kind of the questions that I had in my head after Charles Schulz' people told me that above there back then. Thinking of both Snoopy, Come Home and Snoopy's Reunion. Why did he allow two different storylines about how Charlie Brown got Snoopy?


    Kind of wanted to show what TMZ had to say about this movie. Sadly they didn't post that clip on YouTube. :(

    Ah, but somehow, they've managed to have 3D/CGI Mickey's ears break the laws of physics just like his ears did when he was 2D/hand-drawn.

    Man I hope this doesn't suck.

    Peanuts was a huge part of my childhood. I may have said this somewhere before but there are only three celebrity deaths that really hit me hard. One was Stan Winston, another was Jim Henson and the third was Charles Schulz. I'd hate to see someone crap all over the Peanuts legacy.

    Mickey doesn't look that good in CGI, I have to say. He looks like a plastic toy.

    This is the only real test of CGI Snoopy ever had...

    Actually, I sort of take it back... they do look serviceable in CGI, but you lose the line quality, and Snoopy's bound to look weird in turn around. But the other Peanuts characters look alright.

    Snoopy in CGI is worse than Micky!

    I'm sure professional not PS2 cut scene animation will fix it, but he looks very stiff and like a plastic toy... worse than Mickey, as you said. And I can't find any footage of turn around. Just a side view or back view.

    CGI is the way they're going, but this needs to be 2-D animated.

    I can't agree with that enough.

    Of course, the weird cutscenes in Horton Hears a Who proves they can do 2-D animation.

    Still, how many Peanuts movies were there? Snoopy Come Home, Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (that had its own wrap up special), A Boy Named Charlie Brown, and Race for your Life Charlie Brown. I don't know which were theatrical, though.

    I think Snoopy, Come Home had to be. The others, I don't know. They were always specials on TV when I came around.

    I'm getting tired of the emperor's new clothes attitude when it comes to CGI cartoons. It's still really not that good yet but everyone's pretending it is because it's the most modern.
