  • Apple is making a ‘Peanuts’ movie.
  • The film will see Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang headed to New York.
  • Production is scheduled to start next year.

Since it nabbed the rights to Charles Schulz’s ‘Peanuts’ characters, Apple TV+ has not been shy about developing new shows featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the characters.

In addition to carrying the legacy likes of holiday specials such as ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’, ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ and ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’, the company has modern adaptations including ‘Snoopy in Space’, a series of animated shorts featuring the ‘Peanuts’ gang and Snoopy as he fulfills his dream of becoming a NASA astronaut and ‘The Snoopy Show’.

Now, the company is looking to bring Snoopy and the rest back to the big screen, announcing that it’ll work with WildBrain Studios on a ‘Peanuts’ movie.
