The 3D doesn’t feel necessary and the tone it goes for might be a bit too child-friendly for those who actually grew up on the comics, but nostalgia hits hard in Snoopy and co.’s latest big-screen outing as soon as Schroeder takes over the Fox logo music on his tiny piano. With outrageously cute characters and innocent faux pas galore, the story of Charlie Brown’s crush on the new girl in class almost seems beside the point. That said, kids will have a field day with this.
The Peanuts Movie | Directed by Steve Martino (USA 2015) with Noah Schnapp. Starts December 23
