Whether it’s the classic Peanuts holidays specials or newer series like Snoopy in Space, Apple TV+ is the home of all things Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang these days.
Debuting later this month will be a great new addition to the collection: A star-studded feature documentary that tells the story of Peanuts and its impact. Check out the trailer below.
Titled Who Are You, Charlie Brown?, the feature doc is narrated by Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, and produced by Imagine Documentaries, the production company started by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. As can be seen from the trailer, there’s no shortage of top tier talent featuring — with Kevin Smith, Paul Feig, Drew Barrymore, and others all popping up to offer their take. It also features archival footage of creator Charles Schultz, an interview with his widow, Jean Schulz, and more. It coincides, at least approximately, with the 70th anniversary of Peanuts. The syndicated strip debuted on October 2, 1950. Its been a pop culture staple since then.
Who Are You, Charlie Brown? lands on Apple TV+ on June 25. It joins a stable of other high-end documentaries already on the streaming service. These include feature documentaries such as Boys’ State and Beastie Boys Story, alongside no shortage of great documentary series.
Apple TV+ is available for $4.99 per month, or for free for one year if you buy a new iPad, iPhone, Mac or Apple TV. You can also get it as part of the Apple One subscription bundle, which offers a collection of Apple services for a knock-down price.
