Hollywood did this one right, Charles Schultz would be pleased.
He’s back, and this time, attempting to get through the school year. Charlie Brown (Noah Schnapp) finds a new crush, and takes part in a talent show with the help of his friends and his beloved dog, Snoopy.
How lovely that a whole new generation are being introduced to the Peanuts! The characters are always explored well and equally, not once have then been one-dimensional. From the lovable Charlie Brown, to Linus, the talented Schroeder, Lucy, Sally, not forgetting, the ever-so dependable Snoopy. The voice-work is commendable; Noah Schnapp voices Charlie Brown at only 11 years of age.The animation is marvellous. Instead of appearing in their usual flat, 2D form, 3D animation has incorporated the Peanuts into the 21st century. Each scene is visually stunning; the colours are vivid, which makes for a cheerful film.
A pure delight regardless of your age, The Peanuts Movie is sentimental, but bright and colourful! Those who appreciate the cartoons will be delighted to see the Peanuts on screen and children will love being introduced to them. The animation teaches us to be kind to others, as we are all fighting our own battles. You certainly don’t want to miss out on this one!
