Snoopy joins Hollywood’s exclusive crowd, as everyone’s favorite beagle recently got his very own star on the Walk of Fame—just in time for the release of “The Peanuts Movie”. Read on to know more about this new feat for Charlie Brown’s well-loved companion.
TIME Magazine reports that Snoopy’s plaque, which is number 2,563 on the avenue was arranged early enough for his 3D animated film’s opening. In a heartwarming perspective, fans will feel the nostalgia, as Snoopy’s star is right next to his creator’s, Charles M. Schulz.
Other animated characters to have been presented the honor to have their own Hollywood Walk of Fame stars include: Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Snow White, and Shrek. As for other canines who have their Hollywood spot, Lassie and Rin Tin Tin have previously made their debut.
Speaking of Snoopy’s movie, which will be opening this week, it caters to Peanuts fans and enthusiastic moviegoers who have waited to see how their beloved characters have shifted from comic book pages into 3D animation, with Steve Martino (“Horton Hears a Who!”, “Ice Age: Continental Drift”) at the helm.
The production team worked very hard, converting Schulz’ characters into 3D animation was no laughing matter. Charlie Brown’s character alone was two years in the making, mainly due to the fact that they were not intended to be remade into more than 2D comic book drawings.
For those who can’t wait to see the movie, the commemorative film will surely remind Peanuts fans of Charles Schulz’s legacy, as it brings other much-loved characters like Lucy Van Pelt, Pig-Pen, Schroeder, and Peppermint Patty to life.
Catch “The Peanuts Movie” in theaters starting November 6.
