The first full-length trailer for the CGI Peanuts movie doesn’t tell you much about the plot, but it does help you get used to the different animation style. The comforting sight of Snoopy taking flight after the Red Baron gets even more familiar when he throws his snout in the air à la the Snoopy dance.

Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle—and flying ace—embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest.
Watch the trailer, which hints at Snoopy’s journey and then shows the Peanuts gang in the theater—in kind of a meta, Muppets style—watching their own preview. Of course Charlie Brown spills popcorn on his head:
The Peanuts Movie comes to theaters December 21.
