Good Grief

If, while watching this trailer for the upcoming Peanuts film, you feel a wash of familiarity, it isn't because the animators have managed to perfectly capture the nostalgic feel of Charles Schultz' comic creations. It's because this is the exact same trailer released earlier in December, except that one had a Christmas themed framing device and this one merely has a winter theme.

I was impressed by the first trailer, at how the movie appeared to capture the feel and tone of the old Peanuts shorts and specials. Now, I'm starting to get a little annoyed. This is the third trailer, we've still got eleven months until the release, and what we haven't seen is any content. Only empty nostalgia-exploiting guss. At this point, I'm really hoping that the film has more to offer than just because something that parents remember from their childhoods. And isn't another pretty much everything else. Like Peabody and Sherman.
