Skywalker’s Randy Thom helps keep it authentic for ‘Peanuts’

The classic Peanuts characters hit the big screen earlier this month thanks to the Blue Sky Studios production, The Peanuts Movie (20th Century Fox.) While the latest technology has given depth and texture to these 2D characters, director Steve Martino and the Schulz family made sure the film didn’t stray far from Charles Schulz’s original creations. Skywalker Sound supervising sound editor/sound designer/re-recording mixer Randy Thom and the Skywalker sound team studied the style of sound effects used in the original Peanuts TV specials and aimed to evoke those sounds as closely as they could for The Peanuts Movie, while also adding a modern vibe.
