Rentrak lays out the stats.

Foreign Weekend Box Office -- (World Totals)

Kung Fu Panda 3 -- $75,700,000 -- ($116,700,000)

Star Wars -- $12,600,000 -- ($1,983,226,000)

Alvin and the Chipmunks -- $12,800,000 -- ($152,757,030)

The Peanuts Movie -- $2,400,000 -- ($242,689,678) ...

A fine entertainment journal says:

... DreamWorks Animation/Oriental DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda 3 has kicked up a $75.7M start in six overseas markets. As expected, China delivered a record-breaking opening weekend for an animated film with $58.3M on about 15K screens. Korea also had a good start with $11.4M on 1,359 screens. ...

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Road Chip, squirreled away $12.8M this weekend; Alvin & Co have a cume of $69.5M after six weeks. There are 48 markets now open including China which bowed this week to $4.8M from 2,538 screens. ...

The Peanuts Movie picked up another $2.36M. Family market Brazil had a good 3rd weekend hold. It added $831K to take the cume to $6.7M. The international total is now $112.8M. ...

The press has labeled The Peanuts Movie a "moderate success" and The Good Dinosaur a failure.

TGD has earned $293,897,639 to date, while Peanuts has collected $242.7 million. Of course, the Charlie Brown feature cost under $100 million while Dinosaur ran up a tab of $200 million.

So that might have something to do with media perceptions.
