Do you have a favorite Peanuts character? Growing up, I certainly loved Snoopy and Woodstock but I think I identified with Peppermint Patty the most. She is very much the slightly socially awkward freckled-faced tomboy that I was… I just wasn’t as bold! Thanks to our friends at 20th Century Fox, we have some fun insights on The Peanuts Movie to share with you and a super fun giveaway, too! Read on to discover more!

About the film
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.
If Snoopy is your favorite character, you’ll love this “How To Make a Joe Cool Costume” video, perfect for the upcoming Halloween festivities!
