Blue Sky Studio's Peanuts: Lights. Cameras. Beagles. (Nov. 6 2015)

Recommended Posts

Kinda wish they called it something like "You're _____, Charlie Brown!" or "It's ______, Charlie Brown!" rather than Peanuts but other than that this looks fucking fantastic.

... actually yeah, that would've been nice to see...

I used to read the strips all the time when I was a kid, so the Peanuts fanboy in me made me dread the idea of a CGI film made by the same people who did Ice Age. But man oh man, that trailer just looks fantastic

They really nailed everything down with the look, and hearing Charles' son and grandson working on this gives me alot of hope.. As long as the writing still has some of the charm from the strip, I could easily see this being my favorite film next year.

The animation is really great, I was wondering how they'd translate the style in CG and they're doing a good job by the looks of things. I always like it when studios think outside the box and combine various medium's styles like this rather than doing more-or-less the same type of thing each time.

Awww, the visuals and animation are gorgeous in motion! X3 There's no way they can screw this up.

Hmmm... It could be possible. No it can't, I know this is going to be awesome. I shall prepare the popcorn. What, you say not till another year? Bah..... Alright (Puts popcorn back in pantry sadly)

I've only seen one Peanuts special but I'm looking forward to thi. The animation and visual style looks miles better than Blue Sky's previous work and charmed me instantly.

Like others, I was skeptical at first after hearing "CGI Peanuts", but after seeing the teaser, I'm actually looking forward to seeing more! I'm glad they're staying true the original and I really like that animation too!

Due to the server wandering out of the shops, a lot of things in this topic is sort of gone. I'll repair a bit there:

 

Trailers:

 

 

Posters:

 

A recent poster Blue Sky made is quite interesting. It's based off of The Grand Budapest Hotel's poster.

 

The resemblance is uncanny.

The poster was probably made for kicks but it's pretty nice how they poked some jabs at the Charlie Brown characters.

Poster is great, but I hope we get a new trailer soon which focuses more on the plot and other characters in the film besides Snoopy, Woodstock and Charlie. I really like the look of this and I want to see if the story is just as competent as the animation.

Are all of those previously seen characters? Cause, if they are, I suddenly feel very inadequate as a Peanuts fan.  :blink: Aside from the obvious, I see Shermy, Pig Pen, Franklin, Marcy, Peppermint Patty, Patty, girl who I've seen but don't remember the name of, Sally, Linus, other girl who I've seen but don't remember the name of, Schroeder, Lucy, and that's the Little Red Haired Girl up in the corner with popcorn in front of her face. And I think the dogs are Andy, Olaf, Spike, Marbles, and I want to say one of the girl dogs is named Daisy but I think I'm confusing that with Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. 

 

 

On a completely unrelated note, I hope theaters have those little Charlie Brown zigzag cups.

Yeah, they're his siblings. Fat one's Olaf, shaggy one's Andy, spotted one's Marbles, girl one's Belle (Thank you, Google), and the skinny one's Spike.

 

I have no clue who the "poodle" is, though.

Wow! That poster looks great!

Getting even more hyped each time I see it. I'm not a big fan of many of Blue Sky's movies, some were good but I honestly stopped caring after I saw most of them. I hope this movie will change my perspective of the company. At least a tiny bit.
