Big news for Charlie Brown! The world's most persistent placekicker, Great Pumpkin-seeker, and all-around lovable loser is headed for the big screen. Blue Sky Studios, creators of "Ice Age" and "Rio," announced plans to collaborate with 20th Century Fox for a Peanuts gang feature film.

Charlie and his best pals, including Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and Sally will appear under the direction of Steve Martino, the talent behind "Horton Hears a Who!" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift." The untitled film, which has a release date of November 25, 2015, also has major influence from the original Peanuts family. The script was co-written by Peanuts' creator Charles Schulz's son, Craig Schulz, and grandson, Bryan Schulz, in conjunction with Cornelius Ulian.

Craig Schulz was quoted as saying, “We have been working on this project for years. We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film. I am thrilled we will be partnering with Blue Sky/Fox to create a Peanuts movie that is true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father.”

The first Peanuts comic strip ran on October 2, 1950, so the film will serve to commemorate the gang's 65th anniversary.
