Trailer Watch: "The Peanuts Movie" Trailer #1

Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.

Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang haven't been featured in a movie in over 35 years, yet (mostly in thanks to the yearly repeats of the Halloween and Christmas television specials, they still remain popular to this day. Isn't that kind of crazy? This year, which also happens to be the comic strip's 65th anniversary, will see the release of the fifth Peanuts feature film written and overseen by Charles Schulz's son and grandson so as to retain a faithfulness to Charlie Brown and the gang that Charles would be proud of. While this first trailer doesn't show much of anything actually in the film (it's more of teaser), it is worth a look simply for seeing the unique animation style being employed which looks like a cross between hand drawn and 3D animation techniques. Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
