Fox has officially released the first trailer for the upcoming 3D-animated The Peanuts Movie, as well as a new website complete with the usual photos, posters, videos, and shop sections as the films advertising kicks off.
A brand new synopsis for the film can also be found on peanutsmovie.com:
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. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. 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.
This first trailer is a familiar scene to any fan of classic Peanuts scenarios as it features Snoopy and Woodstock on the iconic red doghouse. The difference of course is the unique 3D-animated style of the film. Although it appears to be using traditional 3D models, the style still looks very Peanuts-y, with familiar facial expressions and angles that fans have known for decades.
The Peanuts Movie is directed by Ice Age: Continental Drift director Steve Martion and stars Noah Schnapp as Charlie Brown, Mariel Sheets as Sally, Venus Schultheis as Peppermint Patty, and Noah Johnston as Schroeder. Other than a minor appearance from Johnston as young Mike Wazowski in Monster’s University the child-heavy voice cast is comprised almost entirely of first-time talents. Interestingly enough, the voices of Snoopy and Woodstock are still the sounds of Bill Melendez who voiced the characters as far back as the 1960s. Melendez passed away in 2008, but his archival recordings are being used in the film for the classic duo.
The film is set to release November 6th, 2015.
