The Peanuts Movie hits theaters today! Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang make their big-screen debut and in state of the art 3D animation!
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.
I recently headed into the city (NYC) with the kids to attend The Peanuts Movie event and an advance screening of the movie. Before we hit the screening, We stopped at the Children’s Museum of the Arts where E had the opportunity to learn how to draw Snoopy with Blue Sky animators, Create a clay version of Snoopy at the clay bar, and even became a character in a stop motion movie in the media lab at the museum!
E first got a lesson on how to draw Snoopy from Tyler Carter of Blue Sky Studios. The process was easy enough, even for 4-year-old E! I do have to admit though, I did help guide her hand for some of the steps.
After drawing Snoopy, we headed into the Media Lab where we both learned a little bit about how stop motion animation works. E danced against a green screen and became the star of her own stop motion film!
Once we left the Children’s Museum of the Arts, we headed to the screening! Shortly after we took our seats the movie began. E and even baby Aric were instantly engaged in the film! I didn’t hear a peep from them through the whole movie which we were able to watch in 3D! This also happened to be E’s first time watching a 3D film and she loved the idea of wearing the glasses. Once the film started, her mind was blown by the images on the screen while wearing her glasses!
The plot was a perfect mix of classic Peanuts with some updated twists. As a parent, I loved how the film shares lessons in honesty, bravery, and friendship. Whether you are a fan of the comic strip or new to The Peanuts gang, The Peanuts Movie is a must see and if you can watch it in 3D, I highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed! A movie for the whole family- The Peanuts Movie is in theaters everywhere NOW!
