Got a few moments to spare for some web amusement? Need a new Facebook profile picture (Don’t we always)? With The Peanuts Movie coming out November 6, Blue Sky is offering everyone the chance to Get Peanutized! on their website. The link takes you to a site where, as the Peanuts music plays cheerfully in the background, you can put your own Peanuts character together.
It’s possible to make one that more-or-less resembles its creator as seen through the Schulz lens, but it’s also possible to play around with it. Theoretically, you could recreate the cast of your favorite TV show in Peanuts form–and if you do, send it to us, please! Or post it in the comments.
The site opens with a fairly blank boy or girl figure. From there, the process moves on, allowing customization of skin, hair, clothing, accessories, facial expression, and more. Often, the choices include color.
It is tempting to take a long time trying out all of the alternatives. Once all of the choices have been made, your left with a full-fledged Peanuts character, complete with background and ready to share on Facebook or to save as a wallpaper.
The Peanuts Movie 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. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. 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.
Release Date: November 6, 2015.
