Snoopy & Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie

What I love about half term is taking the time to snuggle up with the girls and watch a movie, especially if the weather is bad. They love choosing a snack and grabbing some blankets and we all sit on the sofa and spend some quality time together.

They have been looking forward all week to watching the new Snoopy & Charlie Brown movie – The Peanuts Movie. They had wanted to see it in the cinema but it was too difficult to take them with Baby S too so they have waited patiently for the DVD release – which is today incidentally!

Charlie Brown and Snoopy remind me so much of my childhood. I used to watch the cartoons and remember how they used to make me laugh and feel sad all at the same time – Charlie Brown is a great character, he can convey so much feeling.

I won’t spoil the film for you but I will tell you a little about the plot. You will see Snoopy battle his nemesis The Red Baron and Charlie Brown try to win the affections of the Little Red-Headed Girl. What I loved about this film is that nothing has changed in the 25 years since I used to watch the cartoons. The characters look and act the same and they still work wonderfully today.

The girls (aged 9 and 5) were transfixed by the film and sat wonderfully through the whole thing. They really enjoyed it and I am sure it is a film that they are going to watch again and again.

    I’ve seen the trailer for this a few times but can’t tell if I’d enjoy it. Might need to take a friends kid as an excuse to so it (and Finding Dory of course!) x

    Love this film. I just watched it in the plane from my recent flight. Feels good to remember my childhood memories with Snoopy.

    Awww I’ve never watched this movie but I’ve heard such good things about it. It is great that you and your girls take time to just snuggle up and watch a movie. I know now that I’m older, it is those sort of memories with my mum that I cherish the most.
