Move over, Schroeder. There’ll be another musical prodigy joining the “Peanuts” gang when they return to the big screen next month in “The Peanuts Movie,” a 3D animated comedy that marks the comic-strip gang’s first big-screen outing in 35 years. His name: Trombone Shorty.
Don’t look for him on the screen, though. Rather, you’ll have to listen for him.
The 29-year-old New Orleans jazz superstar (known by his mama as Troy Andrews) revealed Monday (Oct. 26) through his social media channels that when director Steve Martino’s film hits theaters, Andrews and his trombone will provide the iconic “wah-wah” voice distinct to all adults in the series — and which kids have been imitating since it debuted in the 1967 made-for-TV Valentine’s Day special “You’re in Love, Charlie Brown.”
