Peanuts Worldwide (Iconix Brand Group) has recently announced a partnership with French production company Normaal Animation and broadcaster France Télévisions to create 500 all-new animated shorts based on the Peanuts comic strip and characters like Snoopy and Charlie Brown by Charles M Schulz.
The 90-second shorts will be based on the 18,000 daily comic strips created by Schultz.
This new collection marks the first animated version of the Peanuts comic strips in short form and will be available for global distribution in the autumn of 2014.
The move is part of Peanuts Worldwide's long-term content-building strategy that also includes a new animated feature film from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios set for global release in November 2015.
