Titan Books are set to publish THE ART AND MAKING OF THE PEANUTS MOVIE on 27th November 2015 in hardback format.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation.

Charlie Brown, everyone’s favourite underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the world famous beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the Ice Age films, The Peanuts Movie will prove that every underdog has his day.

With introductions from Director Steve Martino and Twentieth Century Fox Animation’s president Vanessa Morrison The Art and Making of The Peanuts Movie goes behind the scenes for an in-depth look at the animated movie-making process, to see how the timeless Peanuts style has been lovingly translated into 3D CG for the big screen.

Author Jerry Schmitz has used his unparalleled access to the film’s creative team to craft a heart?warming homage to both Schulz’s original creations and their new adventures on the big-screen. Packed full of development art and Peanuts comic strip material, accompanied by commentary from all areas of the production, including animation, lighting, FX, and modelling, this is a treat for every Peanuts fan to treasure.

Jerry Schmitz is the author of Surf’s Up: The Art and Making of… and The Art of Shrek Forever After. He also works as a PR, marketing, brand management and awards consultant.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
