The Bottom Line

When it comes to cartoons, still or animated, you can't get any more classic than Charlie Brown. Charlie and the gang are eternally loveable, and luckily for audiences young and old alike this updated version doesn't lose the charm of the original. Very few reboots come this close to the feel of the original films and comic strip, and The Peanuts Movie will feel right at home on the small screen. We received the limited edition gift set which included a Snoopy Flying Ace plush toy in the Blu-ray Combo Pack.

On the Blu-ray the skilled recreation of the characters in CG style looks as seamless as it would on the small screen, meanwhile the colors and shapes really pop. Old fans of Charlie will notice some classic gags, but the new movie still has a few tricks up its sleeve in terms of gags. Just like the film, the bonus material plays to older fans and the younger crowd, striking the perfect balance by featuring fun, upbeat music videos as well as interviews and an in-depth look at Peanuts creator Charles Schulz.

The Peanuts Movie dances that fine line between old and new - just like Snoopy! And like Snoopy's dance, it never gets old. The Blu-ray is a classic worth adding to your collection.
