The Peanuts Movie

It's my new favorite animated film of 2015, the end.

Just kidding! I freaking love the movie! I love how they squeezed in the entire Peanuts franchise into one 93-minute feature, I love that they implemented a one-shot character into Snoopy's side-story (the character in question being Fifi from "Life's a Circus, Charlie Brown" here voiced by Kristina Chenoweth), I loved how they got actual children to voice the major characters, I love how they let Charlie Brown, pretty much the poster boy for hapless underdogs, WIN at the end, I love how beautifully animated the Red Baron sequences were, I love how it's another Blue Sky film that isn't an Ice Age sequel & is actually worth watching (other than Horton Hears a Who), I love how they stay true to the source material rather than going the Alvin direction (okay, there's one Meghan Trainor song in the movie, but still), I love how Vince Guaraldi's original music is recreated here by THE Christophe Beck, I really liked the Scrat short that played in front of it, IT'S JUST SO AWESOME!!!!! (blacks out)

(wakes up) Whew, anyways, while I still enjoy The Spongebob Movie 2, Home, Inside Out, Minions and Hotel Transylvania 2, The Peanuts Movie is now officially my favorite animated film of 2015. Plus, I've heard the tie-in game released for the 3DS, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One looks good too.
