Last week, we revealed four new posters that surfaced online for Blue Sky Studios’ adaptation of the Peanuts comic strips and TV specials. Little did we know that there was one other poster it released much earlier that somehow passed us by. This poster depicts two very iconic characters in a clever and funny light.
Courtesy of multiple sources (such as Forbidden Planet and iwatchstuff), Fox released a stylized poster for The Peanuts Movie. The poster is intentionally stylized (for the sake of parody) after the poster for Wes Anderson’s award-winning 2014 comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel. For comparison, here’s the original The Grand Budapest Hotel poster:
Now, here’s the poster for The Peanuts Movie:
While this particular poster won’t tell you anything new about the film, it’s nonetheless a very humorous and clever poster that takes light, yet accurate, jabs at iconic Peanuts characters.
Directed by Steve Martino, with a screenplay by Craig Schultz, Brian Schultz, 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 is William Alexander Wunsch (Shermy), Anastasia Bredikhina (Patty), and Madisyn Shipman as Violet. Archival recordings of Bill Melendez are being 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.
