(Relaxnews) – A new teaser unveils the CGI versions of the famous dog Snoopy, his despondent master Charlie Brown and their feathered friend Woodstock.

Opening with a parody of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” the new video from Fox Family Entertainment introduces the big-screen debut of Charles M. Schulz’s classic characters.

The CGI adaptation, made with the permission of Schulz’s estate, is directed by Steve Martino of BlueSky Studios, who helmed “Horton Hears a Who” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” The movie will hit theaters worldwide in late 2015.

Since being created in 1950, the “Peanuts” comic strip has become an American pop culture icon. The adventures of Charlie Brown, his pets and his friends have been read in over 75 countries.
