Meghan Trainor & Sounds of Peanuts The Movie!
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, “Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie” will prove that every underdog has his day.
“Meghan has written a wonderful song that expresses Charlie Brown’s optimistic attitude as he works with Snoopy to become a better dancer,” says Martino. “She is such an amazing singer songwriter and a shining example of the thematic heart of our story.”
Trainor met with the team at Blue Sky and seemingly overnight captured the essence of the film in song. “Musically, Meghan had me from her very first rough demo,” Martino says. “My foot was tapping and I had a huge smile on my face as I could see this moment in the movie being lifted by her unique talents.”
Trainor commented: “As a lifelong fan of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts Gang, I was thrilled to be offered the chance to see an early version of “Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie” —and to then be inspired to write a song that captured the film’s spirit, energy and sense of joy. And it was a pleasure to work with director Steve Martino to make sure the song did right by the incredible characters and world he’s bringing to the big screen.”
The warmth and merriment of the holiday season continue as “Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie” opens January 8, 2016 (also in 3D) in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
