'The Peanuts Movie' is CG animated film based on the classic Charles M. Schulz comic strip 'Peanuts'. The film is directed by Steve Martino.
Using a mix of 2D and 3D animation 'The Peanuts Movie' is film targeted for fans of who grew up with the comic strips and television specials and is also geared towards the new generation of children. This film truly feels original to the source material, but also has the variety of the new technology not only to keep the younger viewers invested, but to also further emphasis the cinematic value of this type of animation. The film uses a very basic story, and for the most part it is well executed. The comedic timing was golden, the film successfully shifts from each tone without becoming too forced and over bearing. The film has a few flaws, the smplicaty of the story can at times feel repetitive for older audiences, and the film does often shy away from being striking. However, the peanuts movie is a charming and entertaining family film, that does feature a single fart joke, and that's good enough for me.
