Have you heard? There is a new Peanuts movie coming out soon, and the Momz is going to let me tell you about it! Be sure to stay until the end, where we will tell you about a fun giveaway!
The Peanuts Movie is being released on this November 6th, when Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the loveable Peanuts gang make their big screen debut in 3D animation! The world’s most loved underdog, Charlie Brown, embarks upon an epic quest while his best pal, MY HERO, Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron.
The screenplay is of course based on the much loved comic strip created by Charles M. Schulz for his hometown newspaper, and is brought to life by the creators of the Ice Age films. It goes without saying that this is a family friendly movie!
Did you know that Snoopy was actually inspired by lifelong dog lover Charles Schulz’s own childhood dog, Spike? (Remember, Snoopy also has a brother named Spike?) The real Spike wasn’t actually a beagle though, he was a pointer/hound cross. Mr. Schulz just thought the word “beagle” was funny! Snoopy is the only fictional dog to ever receive an honorary AKC registration as Beagle-1. He appeared on the 1979 cover of the organization’s AKC Gazette, holding his registration papers!
A few facts about the movie:
- Directed by Steve Martino.
- Produced by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano, Paul Feig, and Michael Travers
- Cast includes: Noah Schnapp, Mariel Sheets, Alexander Garfin, and Hadley Miller
For more information you can follow the movie on social media:
Since dogs can’t go to the movies, I guess Luke, Sheba, and I are going to have to wait for this one to come out on DVD! Be sure to watch the trailer for the movie below. After watching that, we sure can’t wait!
There are two things I love best about Snoopy: he had a HUGE imagination, and he had a bond with his best friend Charlie Brown that all dogs and dog lovers can relate to. In that spirit, we want to share with you our giveaway of 5 trucker hats as seen below:
