Good Grief! Charlie Brown Returns in New Peanuts Movie—And We're Happy About It

There's some good luck swirling around a famous Chuck.

Fans of Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown and the cherished Peanuts cartoons and TV specials received some stellar news this week: A new Peanuts movie hits the Big Screen Nov. 6, 2015.

Buzz has been building slowly for a new cinematic outing since 2000, when Schulz passed away—the man's 50-year career with the strip is still mind-boggling—but the family had been extremely protective about moving forward with specific projects. (Do you recall 1980's Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!!) Most people do not. However, so many of the Peanuts TV specials (A Charlie Brown Christmas et al), under the helm of Bill Melendez, are part of television history and firmly planted within the fickle ethers of pop culture.

The timing for a new movie was ideal.

Things to know: Craig Schulz, one of Schulz's sons, is on board as producer. The screenplay comes from Craig's son, Bryan, and Cornelius Uliano. As for the plot, everyone involved remains tight-lipped, but we do know that it will reunite the entire cast from Schulz's strips and Melendez's famous TV outings—oh Lucy, Linus, Pig-Pen and Peppermint Patty, it will be good to see you again. Expect some imaginative romps involving Snoopy, particularly the famous canine's World War I fighter-pilot excursions.

But take note: The arrival of a new character. Sort of. At long last, we'll see the unveiling of Charlie Brown's lifelong crush, "the Little Red-Haired Girl."

Stay tuned ...
