Peanuts: Should I be pleased or scared?

interrobang, shock, astonishment, confusion
Because there's this other thing that's been announced today...and I'm not sure what I make of it.

Huh.

Well, it's not as 'uncanny valley' as Tintin was, at least.

I still haven't gotten around to seeing that movie!

Annoying, that delay.

You've been blessed!
Seriously, if you go, don't expect anything from the story. If you turn off your mind and enjoy the cartoonist's honouring Herge, you'll probably have a good time; if you expect the writers to do the same, you'll be bitterly disappointed.

If you're interested, I said so at considerably greater length here.

I didn't instantly hate it, which already puts it leagues ahead of most CGI updates of beloved cartoons.

It's a decent trailer
I'm with moon_custafer: I didn't instantly hate it. In fact, I kind of liked it. The music also suggests it is riffing more on the television specials than on the strip, which also makes me feel a bit better about it. I was never a big fan of the specials, probably because they weren't much like the strip; but I suspect I'd appreciate them now, for exactly that reason.

Trying to reproduce Schulz's genius would be a mug's game; but riffing on it might produce wonderful results.

I also noticed, though, that you can see Woodstock's dialogue (?) .

Seeing the actual word balloon as Woodstock "spoke"...
