(Newser) – It's either good news or bad news for Peanuts fans, depending on your faith in 20th Century Fox: Charles Schulz's classic comic strip is coming back to the big screen. The Peanuts feature film, written by Schulz's son Craig, grandson Bryan, and Cornelius Uliano, hits theaters Nov. 25, 2015—the 65th anniversary of the comic's debut, and the 50th anniversary of its iconic TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"We have been working on this project for years," said Craig Schulz, president of Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, in a statement. "We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film." Peanuts has been made into a feature film four times in the past, first in 1969's A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The new movie will be directed by Steve Martino, who has also directed an Ice Age sequel and Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who.
