About “The Peanuts Movie”

“The Peanuts Movie” is the first 3D animation film from Blue Sky Studios based on the classic Peanuts comic created by Charles M. Schulz. The film is produced by the tradition-steeped film company 20th Century Fox. “The Peanuts Movie” will be released on 23 December 2015 in German cinemas.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron.

From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the “Ice Age” films, “The Peanuts Movie” will prove that every underdog has his day.
