There's a Peanuts flick coming out in the next month or so... I haven't really given it too much thought, it looks cute and all, but when I went to the theater today, I glanced up above the ticket window and there was Pigpen looking down at me.  Any time in the past it would be a flat drawing of Pigpen, but in that moment, I was struck... that's actual Pigpen.  And I looked and there were other characters about, and I had this thought where "they could exist in the same space as me."

I don't know why that struck me.  There have been 3D cartoons before, fantastic looking ones that look like they could fit into our real world, and there have been 2D cartoons that have been given the 3D treatment.  Why were these different?  Is it because I've been reading Peanuts since I was a kid?  Cause I had the books in my hand and had that direct connection to them?  Is it because of the inherent personalities?  I dunno.

Will I be seeing this in the theater?  I don't know that either.  I can imagine seeing it on a giant 4K tv... that feels like it would be a more apt recreation of that direct connection, having the characters in the house.
