Wow.

By far, the BEST translation from 2D to 3D I have ever seen. Mr. Schulz should be proud of how amazingly his style has been translated.

Easily a CAN'T WAIT event for me and my son ....

Very cool! I can't wait for this one. Right up there with the Lego Movie.

I embedded the video up in Ben's initial post for those who have yet to see it.

I like it. I like that they've kept the music that will forever be connected to the property. I like that they've kept the laugh that Snoopy's had for nearly 50 years as well as Woodstock's "chirps". I like that Charlie Brown (or at the very least) sounds like he's being voiced by a kid. I like that it seems to be more of a 2.5D than 3D, it looks more like paper/multi-media cutouts than fully "sculpted" 3D puppets with a very stop-motion feel to it.

Hopefully the script is as wonderful as the early TV specials.

Yeah, that clip is truly a display of "love" for the original Schultz art. It truly represents everything that made us all fall in love with the Peanuts when we were children.

I can't wait to see more and start getting info on story details.

And, to keep us occupied in the meantime, what was your favorite TV special/moment with the gang when you were growing up?

Me? .... the little red-haired girl from the Valentine's special or maybe Woodstock winning the river rafting race in the Summer Camp show ....

Mine is definitely the entire Christmas episode, but especially the dancing on stage. We watch the Valentines, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials every year.

Peanuts Holiday Specials are easily the most watched DVDs I have ever purchased.
