Posted: Updated:

Charlie brown and his "Peanuts" pals are coming to the big-screen.

Charles Schulz's characters will star in their own animated film.  There's no working title yet.

Schulz's son, Craig, and grandson, Bryan, co-wrote the screenplay.  Craig Schulz knows he's got big shoes to fill.  "All I can do is make it last as long as I can, and be as true to my dad's work as I can.  I believe the rest of the family is really dedicated to that," he said.

The film is scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 25, 2015.  That year marks the 65th anniversary of the "Peanuts" comic strip and the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas," the first of the gang's many television specials.
