Apple has revealed the trailer for its brand new Peanuts holiday special, ‘For Auld Lang Syne’, which arrives on TV+ next month.
The new special marks first new holiday original from Apple’s partnership with Peanuts and WildBrain and is based on the comic strip by Charles M. Schulz.
In the special, after Lucy experiences a disappointing Christmas because her Grandma couldn’t visit, she resolves to throw the best New Year’s Eve party ever for the entire Peanuts gang, while Charlie Brown struggles to accomplish just one of his resolutions before the clock strikes twelve.
The new special is from a story by Alex Galatis and Scott Montgomery, and written by Galatis, Montgomery and Clay Kaytis who also directed. Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano serve as executive producers alongside Paige Braddock for Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, and Josh Scherba, Stephanie Betts, Amir Nasrabadi and Anne Loi for WildBrain Studios.
In addition to the new special, Apple is also adding some additional classic Peanuts content to TV+ in December.
Additionally, beginning Friday, December 3, 2021, fans can revisit “It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown,” a collection of Christmas-themed vignettes, including: Charlie Brown tries to sell wreaths; Peppermint Patty worries about her Christmas book report; Charlie Brown tries to buy gloves for Peggy Jean; and the gang is in a Christmas play, where Sally worries about her single line and Peppermint Patty plays a sheep. “It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown” is created and written by Charles M. Schulz. It is executive produced by Lee Mendelson, Bill Melendez serves as director and producer. It joins beloved classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas” which is available to stream now. Feeling down about the commercialism of Christmas, Charlie Brown becomes the director of the gang’s holiday play. Can he overcome his friend's preference for dancing over acting, find the “perfect” tree, and discover the true meaning of Christmas?
