I Just Got Way Too Excited About This 'PEANUTS' Trailer

And I make no apologies about my geekasm, whatsoever. I grew up with the Peanuts comic strip and I've always loved its minimalism -- reflective of old school cartoons that don't rely on a whole lot of wild effects and snarky wit to attract audiences. Charlie Brown was that quintessential character of his time who couldn't ever win for trying, but we loved him anyway. Which is also why I never miss a chance to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (which should be re-airing any minute now), and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Yes, my obsession is very much real.

So, needless to say I nearly dropped my coffee mug this morning when our beloved Snoopy presented the trailer for THE PEANUTS MOVIE, which you may remember is finally making its way onto the big screen next year (and in 3D!). We have a grueling 12 months to wait until we can see this, which means you'll likely see me mention this movie a lot on this site. So, here's what the gang is up to this time:

In PEANUTS, a 3D, CGI animated comedic adventure, Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace! – embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.
Watch the adorable new trailer:

THE PEANUTS MOVIE is in theaters November 6th, 2015. Who else is psyched about it?

The only way this will work for me is if they keep the essence of the characters and the way they interact with each other. If it was palatable enough for us as children, this generation will just have to "get it". Yeah, I'm THAT person when it comes to the Peanuts gang because I love it as much as you do.

I am not at all a fan of CGI in any capacity - so the only thing I'd be dazzled by, with Schultz long gone from this planet, for the writers to retain the spirit of what made these characters so lovable.
