Charles Schulz's much beloved, long-running comic strip Peanuts is coming to theaters in a new, all CGI film in November 2015, and fans got their first look Tuesday via a few images and a 60-second teaser from Blue Sky Studios.
From the looks of it, fans should probably feel pretty encouraged. Not only do the movie characters look a whole heck of a lot like Schulz's comic designs (or at least 3D versions thereof), but the teaser indicates that the unforgettable Vince Guaraldi music that accompanied Peanuts TV specials for decades will be used. Check out the teaser and images after the jump!

Kudos to Lauren LoPrente for connecting the pronounced themes of failure, unrequited love, and existential dread that defines so much of Charles Schulz's legendary comic strip Peanuts with the similarly dour words of the great Smiths lyricist Morrissey. Named after The Smith's "This Charming Man," LoPrente's This Charming Charlie blog draws from Morrissey's limitless supply of loathing and depression and applies those lyrics to some of Schulz's most iconic layouts and poses. Its a good laugh, and you can see some of our favorites along with their musical sources below.
