When I was a kid, I used to love watching the Peanuts specials during the holidays. Like so many people, A Charlie Brown Christmas was my favourite. But I loved the Halloween special almost as much, and the Easter special was tons of fun too! Once I had children of my own, I was eager to introduce them to Charlie Brown and his friends. But while both boys enjoyed the specials, the characters were somewhat drowned out by new and modern cartoon heroes.
Now, that’s all changed! The Peanuts crew is back and better than ever with the release of The Peanuts Movie on Blu-ray and DVD. With modern animation bringing new life to the old school characters, it’s a must-see experience for the whole family! Recently I received The Peanuts Movie Limited Edition Gift Set along with some adorable Peanuts merchandise so that we could have a special movie night and I couldn’t wait. Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie:
Dream big and laugh along with good ol’ Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang as you’ve never seen them before – in a brand-new feature film from the imagination of Charles M. Shultz and the creators of Ice Age. Join everyone’s favourite eternal optimist, Charlie Brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest, while his beagle pal Snoopy takes to the skies to pursue his archnemesis, the Red Baron. It’s a hilarious and heartwarming adventure that proves every underdog has his day! [Read more…]
