On November 1st, Apple TV+ will release ‘Snoopy in Space’, one of a slew of originals coming to the company’s new streaming service. To coincide with the shows launch, iconic Peanut characters from Charles M. Schulz will soon be part of a new Design Lab session for Today at Apple where attendees in Apple retail stores across the world will learn how to create their own astronaut in the iconic Peanuts style using the Procreate app on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil.
It’s unknown at this point whether clips of the show will make up some part of the session, however attendees will draw facial expressions to show emotion and mood, customise a colourful spacesuit and make their astronaut come alive in a share-worthy GIF.
This is the first widely distributed Today at Apple session to leverage Apple TV+ original content following the sessions debut as a one-off on Sep 28th.
There’s now a huge potential for Apple to integrate its other TV+ properties in company’s retail education initiative. Apple have previously used Today at Apple sessions to promote music artists such as Madonna, DJ Swizz Beats and Billie Eilish to promote Garage Band for iOS – sessions that have become a staple for Today at Apple.
There’s now potential for Apples original properties to come onboard. Along with new Video Lab sessions, it may not be to long before we see ‘Helpsters’ characters teaching Swift playgrounds or featured homes in upcoming Apple original ‘Home’ showcasing HomeKit basics.
To sign up for the new Design Lab, you can check for session availability at your local store on the web at the official Today at Apple site or in the Apple Store app on iOS. The new Design Lab session titled ‘Draw Your Astronaut Inspired by Snoopy in Space’ debuts on Nov 2nd and is now available to book at select Apple Stores.
