Peanuts film in 2015?

The beloved cast of the Peanuts Gang are returning to big screen, this is huge news I mean the last Charlie Brown related film released was back in 1980. I for one have never been a fan of "Peanuts" but that's not to say I dislike it, I just have no general opinion on it.

The late Charles Schulz's son is involved in the film and is working on bringing the famous Charlie Brown and Snoopy to the Silver Screen again in 2015. Believe it not the film will NOT be made using CGI, yeah you did read that correctly no CGI it's looking for likely that a lucky hand animation studio will be given this incredible task.
"Iconix Brand Group, Inc. (ICON) announced today that Peanuts Worldwide, a joint venture with Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, will release a Peanuts feature film worldwide in 2015. The film is based on creator, Charles Schulz’s, iconic comic strip. Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang are among the most recognized characters in the world.
The as yet untitled animated event will be released on November 25, 2015. 2015 will mark the 65th anniversary of the debut of the “Peanuts” comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the landmark television special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
The Peanuts screenplay has been written and will be produced by Craig Schulz, son of Charles Schulz along with his own son, Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have been chosen by the Schulz family to distribute, produce and animate the new Peanuts movie. Steve Martino will direct; previously, he brought to the big screen (with Jimmy Hayward) Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! Martino also directed (with Michael Thurmeier) Fox’s recent box-office smash Ice Age: Continental Drift."
