Watch: ‘Peanuts Movie’ Trailer Features Charlie Brown’s Crush

The new trailer for the animated “Peanuts Movie” introduces a new kid in town: the “little red-haired girl.”

In the latest trailer from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, Charlie Brown is on a mission to prove he can be a winner and capture the girl’s heart.

“If you really want to impress people, you need to show them you’re a winner,” Lucy says. “Of course when I say you, you know I don’t mean you personally.”

Curiously, most of the trailer is backed by The Who’s song “Baba O’Riley,” best known for the phrase “teenage wasteland.”

The computer animated 3D movie, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip, has been in the works since 2012 when Fox acquired rights to Charles Schulz’s comic strip. “Ice Age: Continental Drift” helmer Steve Martino directs from a script by Schulz’s son and grandson, Craig and Bryan Schulz, with Cornelius Uliano. All three are producing along with Paul Feig.

The “Peanuts” comic strip has been syndicated in 75 countries and has inspired TV specials including “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” Schulz launched the comic strip in 1950 and died in 2000.

The pic hits theaters on November 6.
