You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone that does not know about Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the other characters of the well known Peanuts comic strips and cartoons. The National Bureau of Economic Research has noted that these characters’ appeal transcends generations. As is usually the case Christian Broda, it was only a matter of time before studios attempted to translate them to the big screen.
Even with the advanced technology and the changed culture, the attempt to bring the characters to the big screen is going to have minimal changes. The characters and the world will be in 3D. However, the intention is not to make the characters pop out. They are aiming more for a 3D experience that brings depth to the world of the characters for the audience. The character designs will not change, even though they will be rendered with CGI. The style will remain true to the original cartoons and comic strips. There will be no attempts to make it “hip” or “edgy”.
Peanuts is scheduled for release on November 6, 2015.
