If you’re anything like me, hearing the classic piano strains of the Peanuts theme is enough to send you deep into nostalgia — and the new trailer for Charles Schulz’s animated classic is designed to do just that.

Fans have been anticipating this upcoming feature — from 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, and helmed by Steve Martino (Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears A Who) — for years. And though it might be jarring to see computer-generated versions of Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Snoopy, hardcore Schulzites shouldn’t worry: Producer Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) promises USA Today that the comic’s beloved characters will come to the big screen with their personalities intact.

“Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking,” he vows. “We’re in good hands.”

'The Heat' trailer: Director Paul Feig on Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy's buddy-cop movie

A by-the-book Federal agent. A take-no-prisoners Boston detective. Forced to work together to bust a drug ring. It’s the tried and true buddy-cop formula from movies like Lethal Weapon, 48 HRS., and The Other Guys, but director Paul Feig is hoping to prove once again that the ladies can do anything as well as the guys can. In 2011, Feig helped a party of Bridesmaids led by Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy crash the box office to the tune of $169 million, trashing the notion that you need a Y-chromosome to score R-rated hilarity. In The Heat, out in April, Feig and McCarthy are raising the stakes even higher, recruiting Sandra Bullock to bust some crooks in an R-rated action-comedy.

In the new trailer, posted on Apple’s website, McCarthy and Bullock’s characters get off on the wrong foot, but pity the perp who crosses them — especially if he weighs more than they can lift. Feig tells EW about reuniting with McCarthy, what ’80s buddy-cop movie was The Heat‘s real inspiration, and how the movie will showcase another side to America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Nice trailer. Now which one was Cagney and which was Lacey?
PAUL FEIG: Exactly. It’s a whole new twist, my friend. No, I’m really proud of it because the irony is doing a green-band trailer is kinda hard. We’re definitely a good R-rated movie. But the first trailer definitely gives you a feel for these characters and the chemistry between them. These two actresses are just so funny together. Now they’re like best friends in real life, so the chemistry just comes through. READ FULL STORY
