The Peanuts Movie

New animation style, same old fun.

Hits all the classic elements, from the kite-eating tree to the lil’ redheaded girl, to Snoopy dueling with the Red Baron, and does it with a great sense of joy.

There’s a genuine sense of old-fashioned kindness coursing through the film, which is refreshing.

While modern computer animation drives things, the filmmakers sprinkle in some old-school drawings from Charles Schulz to remind us where everything started.

My youngest nephew, who’s eight, is driving the middle one, who’s 10, bonkers by wanting to watch this over and over.

But you know, he’s not wrong.
