One of the most beloved film franchises is returning after almost ten years. Last time we saw this franchise, it was in CGI and bombed dramatically in box officers. Can you guess? It’s Scooby-Doo. The world’s favourite detective dog is back up to his silly ways in his cinematic return. The trailer, which recently dropped, shows a younger version of Scooby and Shaggy and instead of it being live, the CGI is animated for younger audiences in a 3D Cartoon Format. Our regular group of mystery solvers have returned with Velma, Freddy, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo ready for another adventure while otable voice actors Amanda Seyfried, Zac Efron and Frank Welker have all signed on for this instalment,
The premise of this new film, which is called “Scoob!” is the story of how two lifelong friends met. The lifelong friendship of Scooby and Shaggy has been seen for decades, but this will be the first time that audiences get to see how the two met and became detectives with the gang. The film’s plot also noted that fans will see the characters as adults, after they’ve solved countless cases and when they face their biggest threat ever. Subsequently, this film looks like it will be a hit amongst children and their parents alike. It won’t be long until audiences get to see the Mystery Solving Gang face off against Ghosts once again.
Multiple other actors have signed on to play roles in this film. The characters they’re taking on are new for the series. Fans of Ken Jeong, Tracy Morgan or Mark Wahlberg can hear their voices in the upcoming animated film. The director of Scoob is Tony Cerone, who previously worked on films like Space Jam and Annie Animated. Fans can witness this film in theatres on May 15th, 2020.
The History of Scooby-Doo
Scooby-Doo first became a household name across American Televisions in 1969, with countless iterations of the show since. The brand’s history includes TV Movies, Direct to Video Films, Theatrical Releases, Animated Shows, Comic Books and Video Games. It’s been ranked as the fifth-greatest cartoon in history. The latest animated show to be released for the brand is “Scooby-Doo, Guess Who?”.
The popularity of this brand has become worldwide, with the show winning multiple Emmy’s and becoming a significant part of North American Pop Culture. There are hundreds of recreations for the Mystery Machine, which can often be seen at Comic-Cons or other pop culture events. Countless individuals have gotten tattoos of the characters, read their books or comics as children, played the family-friendly games or had a family pet named after one of the characters. It will be interesting to see if Scooby-Doo has the same effects on the young in its sixth decade as a brand.
