LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IT’S THE GREAT SOUNDTRACK, CHARLIE BROWN!
Good grief, blockheads, does it get any better than this? Underdog Charlie Brown has finally landed The Little BLONDE Haired girl. None other than Grammy® -nominated and multi-platinum global superstar, Meghan Trainor, announced today she is recording an original song for THE PEANUTS MOVIE.
To celebrate the occasion, Meghan’s fans can check out her social sites for a Peanuts-inspired image of the pop star in true-to-style round headed glory.
According to Lucy van Pelt, the song, “Better When I’m Dancin',” promises to knock your block off. Music enthusiasts Snoopy and Woodstock could not be reached for comment, but did release this statement, “’/’’!’”/’/’!/’!’” The Peanuts own virtuoso Schroeder added, “Please don’t touch my piano.”
Meghan Trainor commented: “I was thrilled to be offered the chance to see an early version of THE PEANUTS MOVIE – and to then be inspired to write a song that captured the film’s spirit, energy and sense of joy. It was a pleasure to work with director Steve Martino to make sure the song did right by the incredible characters that the team is bringing to the big screen. I can't wait for everyone to hear the song!”
In THE PEANUTS MOVIE, 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 stunning state of the art 3D animation. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. 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.
THE PEANUTS MOVIE flies into theaters everywhere on November 6, 2015. A year that also marks the 65th anniversary of the debut of the “Peanuts” comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the landmark television special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
Charles Schulz drew the most popular and influential comic strip of all time, which was read every day by 355 million people in 75 countries. In addition to the famous strip, Peanuts holiday television specials such as It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown have won Emmys and are among the highest rated prime time TV specials.
Steve Martino directs THE PEANUTS MOVIE; previously, he brought to the big screen (with Jimmy Hayward) Fox/Blue Sky’s Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! Martino also directed (with Michael Thurmeier) Fox’s recent box-office smash Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Craig Schulz and Bryan Schulz, respectively Mr. Schulz’s son and grandson, along with Cornelius Uliano, Paul Feig and Michael J. Travers are producing. Feig, the director of the blockbuster comedies "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" and "Spy," is a lifelong "Peanuts" fan.
