I’m not sure how to feel about this. Its great to have the Peanuts characters in the forefront again. That part I like. I just don’t know about this update to their look.
The approach taken here is interesting and more fitting than a more traditional 3d movie look like one used on Dr. Suess’ characters in The Lorax. The movements and animation feels right. If it HAD to be done in 3d, I’d have to agree that this is the way to do it. But did it have to be done in 3d at all?
This of course leaves out the question of what the story will be. Blue Sky has done pretty well so far, so I’m hopeful.
