Charlie Brown, Snoopy and their Peanuts pals are coming to the big screen.

Charles Schulz' beloved characters will star in their own animated film scheduled to hit theatres on November 25 2015, the year of the 65th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip and the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first of the gang's many TV specials.

The as-yet-untitled film will be produced by 20th Century Fox and its Blue Sky Studios animation unit, the outfit behind the Ice Age flicks and such cartoon hits as Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!

Schulz' son Craig and grandson Bryan co-wrote the screenplay with Cornelius Uliano, and the three also are producing the film.

Steve Martino, co-director of Horton Hears a Who and Ice Age: Continental Drift, will direct the Peanuts film.
