Faith and family-friendly movies continue demonstrating staying power. On March 8, On DVD Release.com reports that the top movie released to DVD today is The Peanuts Movie (one of the rare redemptive, uplifting G movies for all ages).
In a recent exclusive interview Craig Schultz (son of creator of The Peanuts and writer for The Peanuts Movie and director, Steve Martino, talked with Austin Movie Examiner on the Red Carpet for the Movieguide® Awards about the importance of good values and qualities in a movie as more important than winning awards, about the significance of timeless messages, and the need for movies that do not embarrass and shock audiences.
They told how Charlie Brown never kicks the football or wins but demonstrates character qualities that are more important than winning. The classic Peanuts characters under current careful supervision keep on presenting timeless truths through their stories during holiday seasons and throughout the year. With it continuing popularity for almost 60 years, this franchise also demonstrates the staying power of skillful redemptive storytelling that appeals to all ages.
On March 8, On DVD Release also reports the redemptive movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015) (PG-13, teens through adults) is the current top-selling DVD overall, although it is selling in pre-release with its release date set for March 22.
