I’ve been contacted by a friend within the Peanuts organization, letting me know that despite what I posted earlier, It’s Tokyo, Charlie Brown is not in production as an animated release. At this point, it is coming out only as an original graphic novel.
You readers and everyone at Peanuts Worldwide have my sincere apologies. I had what I felt was a reliable source – a Peanuts licensee referring in their catalog to this graphic novel being tied into a new animated special. Now I’ve got a source that trumps that. I am so sorry for this misinformation.
