The question is, will they go with a traditional cell shading art style, or CG art style (we all know it will most likely be computer animated either way)
Or "computer generated blandishment" anyway.

Yikes. I'm not sure what to think of this. I guess it's good that his family has oversight, as long as they understand what made the strip a classic and have the integrity to enforce it. I'm a little alarmed that someone involved in the Horton remake is involved, though. I really hope this isn't CGI.

Yeah I'm... nervous to say the least about this. Could be good - could be crappy. I guess the problem is - everyone has in their mind, an idea of what a Peanuts movie would look like and I dunno if a cel shaded 3D or full 3D movie would 'fly' - part of the Peanuts charm was the old school feel.

It was the cheap and simple but faithful animation, and the use of real children rather than adult voice actors to provide the character voices. And the Vince Guaraldi jazz score.

Trying to do Charlie Brown in 3D or anything other than flat line art just doesn't work. Schulz's minimalist style only translates to 2D. Anything else looks creepy.
I largely agree with this, except that I found the trailers for Snoopy Flying Ace to be effective -- Linus was a barkeep, talking about the exploits of the Legendary Flying Ace, and it was all done as 3-D CGI.

Obviously, I'd prefer cel animation, but that's not what the studio they're partnered with does.

Everyone knew the Peanuts comic strip would end when Charles Schultz died. The strip was such a personal creation, no one else could possibly have continued it.

Well, at least this project has the involvement of Schultz's progeny, so I'm hoping for the best.
The original Peanuts comics from BOOM! Studios have been surprisingly good. Happiness is a Warm Blanket worked a lot better than I thought it would. The impression I have is that the Schulz family is treating the comic strip as a completed canon while recognizing that they need to do other things in other media to keep Peanuts as an ongoing and thriving concern.
