The slow-drip marketing phase for Blue Sky Studios’ The Peanuts Movie continues. This time, things start to get more interesting.
Courtesy of Animation Magazine, we have a new teaser poster for the film. Check it out below:
What makes this poster different from the others is that, for the first time, we see the full span of the larger cast of characters who have never appeared on-screen before. While I won’t point out who these characters are among the crowd (knock yourself out in the comment section below), this poster makes it clear that the filmmakers are more than adamant about honoring the 50+ years of material from the comic strips in addition to the TV specials, while simultaneously updating the property for a new generation.
Directed by Steve Martino from a screenplay by Craig Schulz, Brian Schulz, and Cornelius Uliano, the film features a voice cast that includes Noah Schnapp (Charlie Brown), Hadley Belle Miller (Lucy van Pelt), AJ Teece (Pig-Pen), Noah Johnston (Schroeder), Venus Schultheis (Peppermint Patty), Alexander Garfin (Linus van Pelt), Francesca Capaldi (Little Red-Haired Girl), Mar Mar (Franklin), Mariel Sheets (Sally Brown), and Rebecca Bloom (Marcie). Rounding out the cast are William Alexander Wunsch (Shermy), Anastasia Bredikhina (Patty), and Madisyn Shipman as Violet. Archival recordings of Bill Melendez will be used for the voices of Snoopy and Woodstock.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
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.
The Peanuts Movie arrives in theaters on November 6, 2015.
