Our Score
Sixty-five years after cartoonist Charles M Schulz first created the Peanuts pack, and 35 years since the last feature release, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and the gang return with this cute and charmingly computer-generated outing. There's a plot of sorts, which has Charlie bidding to woo the town's new "red-haired girl". But it's really just a framework for some classic and beautifully rendered Peanuts scenarios, with determined but luckless Charlie as the "face of failure", Lucy as the queen of crabbiness, and Snoopy as the supreme fantasist, imagining he's a World War One flying ace. Adults will wallow in the nostalgia, and kids will love it, too.

Summary

The long-suffering youngster hopes his lifelong run of bad luck will come to an end when he develops a crush on a new schoolfriend. His beloved dog has more important things to worry about, as he dreams of taking to the skies in his airborne kennel. Animated comedy, with the voices of Noah Schnapp and Bill Melendez.
