Good Grief Chris Wedge!

A new trailer for the upcoming Peanuts movie is now out which was leaked by a few screenshots a few days ago. Now after my Honest Trailer parody, I now must do this. By the way, this is for my mom's friend Darsa.

So we open with Woodstock and his fellow birds decorating Snoopy's famous doghouse for the holidays complete with the iconic tune by Vince Guaraldi. One thing I really love about this forthcoming feature is that it combines the classic style with 3D visuals, which makes me think it's actually pre-rendered visuals like the old Donkey Kong games by Rare. Anyway, Snoopy wakes up and becomes the WWI Flying Ace to battle the Red Baron once again. Complete with a pop song? Despite this surprise, I'm alright as long as they don't make Linus interact with the Great Pumpkin on Skype or have Snoopy and his various siblings do the Harlem Shake, although that last one would be funny. Snoopy then lands in the ornament box and uses Woodstock to light up the decorations. The trailer ends with Charlie Brown failing yet again to catch a break as he blocks everyone's view and getting a popcorn bucket stuck on his head, complete with his trademark "good grief."

Like I said, this film combines the classic style with 3D visuals, which makes me ask why can't Hollywood do this for all CG films based off of classic properties. Genndy Tartakovsky is doing it with Popeye and a new Smurfs movie transforms the original Peyo drawings to computers. Then again, there could be a Gravity Falls movie directed by M. Night Shyamalan, produced by Uwe Boll and starring Shia LaBeouf & Kristen Stewart as Dipper and Mabel.
