PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorTHE ROCK FATHER's 2015 Movie Preview showcases select titles heading to theaters this year, as provided to us by studio representatives. 

I've been on-board for The PEANUTS Movie since it was first announced - me being a lifelong fan of the creations of Charles M. Schulz. Being a parent, we've been making our own PEANUTS memories, one of the first being my special trip to a Hallmark store for a full-size Snoopy plush for Addie a few years back. With the first-ever big-screen CGI adventure featuring Snoopy and the gang due in theaters this November, I'm including it in my 2015 movie preview - and this is also a perfect time to reveal that you'll be seeing a lot more of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and all of your favorite PEANUTS characters here on THE ROCK FATHER in the year ahead. I'll be working with PEANUTS Worldwide as a Brand Ambassador, so stay tuned...


Theatrical Release Date: November 6, 2015
MPAA Rating: TBD
Director: Steve Martino

Synopsis:    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 state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. 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.
