Could you imagine Charlie Brown using the Internet? Online dating? Good grief, he’d be a stressed mess. Thankfully, a new trailer for the upcoming Peanuts Movie doesn’t try to update Charlie Brown and the gang for the now. Well, beyond making it 3D. And having DJ Khlaed’s “All I Do Is Win” in it.
The movie, out Nov. 6, is certainly family-friendly, but this trailer is given a bit of edge with the inclusion of Khlaed and the Who’s Baba O’Riley. We’re guessing they couldn’t get “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.” The crux of the story: the reinvention of Charlie Brown when a new crush moves to town. Here’s hoping Peppermint Patty gets a love interest too.
The absence of Vince Guaraldi’s classic piano theme is palpable, and it’s still hard to tell if this movie is aimed at adults or kids, but the Hollywood nostalgia factory is well-oiled.
