Kong: Snoopy Island

Schulz/Peanuts news

I went to see the film Kong: Skull Island last night, and in addition to noticing that it was a beautifully shot, and very much the film it should be (a well-made piece of fluff), I noticed that it’s the latest film for the Peanuts crew to make a sneak appearance in. Near the beginning, there’s some shots of American servicemen’s quarters in Vietnam (the film is set at the end of the Vietnam War) with a batch of Peanuts strips on the wall. It’s not even a sly background thing, it’s central to an admittedly brief shot.

When the DVD comes out, I’ll have to freeze-frame it and see if I can identify the particular strips, and whether they have any particular relevance.
