Scooby-Doo is going to hit screen silver screen by the name of “ Scoob”!
The world’s greatest detective is making a triumphant return to the big screen… No, we don’t mean Batman – we’re talking about Scooby-Doo, of course. Yep, everyone’s favourite canine mystery-solver is returning for a new animated movie, simply titled Scoob! – and, thanks to a new trailer, we’ve got a first look at his latest feature-length adventure.
Promising an “epic origin story”, Scoob! reveals how lifelong friends Scooby and Shaggy first met, and how they joined with young detectives Fred, Velma and Daphne to form the famous Mystery Inc, before throwing the gang into an elaborate adventure involving haunted houses (of course), robot scorpions and alien spaceships that remind Scooby of a certain Swedish furniture store.Scoob! is the first feature-length Scooby-Doo ‘toon made specifically for the big screen, and it’s being worked on by Reel FX – the Dallas-based animation studio behind Free Birds and The Book Of Life. The film is directed by experienced animator Tony Cervone, a Scooby-Doo veteran who’s worked on several Mystery Inc projects throughout his career and was the animation director on Space Jam.
The film is intended to serve as both a reboot of the previous live-action film series and the starting point for a mooted ‘Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe’. Other Hanna-Barbera characters confirmed to appear in the film include Captain Caveman (voiced by Tracy Morgan), the Teen Angels’ Dee Dee Sykes (Kiersey Clemons), superhero duo Dynomutt and Blue Falcon (voiced by Ken Jeong and Mark Wahlberg respectively) and Wacky Races’ Dick Dastardly (Jason Isaacs).
