The first trailer for next year's Snoopy and Charlie Brown: A Peanuts Movie has been released - and 2015 can't come quick enough.

Scheduled for release on October 16, 2015, the 3D film is being directed by Ice Age: Continental Drift director Steve Martino, with The Heat and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig among the producers.

Studio Twentieth Century Fox says: "For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz's timeless Peanuts comic strip will be making their big-screen debut, like they've never been seen before."

The late Charles Schulz's son Craig Schulz and grandson Bryan Schulz are among the writers of the big screen adventure and will also serve as producers.
