SCOOB!, a relaunch of the series that also features other Hanna-Barbera franchises held by Warner Bros under WanerMedia, is a CGI animated feature inspired by the Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons created by the company. The film was animated by Reel FX, and after the COVID-19 pandemic, its theatre debut was briefly delayed before being moved to Digital on Demand.
On the evening of the movie’s premiere, Twitter and YouTube hosted a virtual watch party under the hashtag #ScoobMovieNight. A constrained theatrical run of the movie began on May 21, 2021, in the US. When Warner Bros said they would revive the Scooby-Doo film series with an animated picture in June 2014, preparations for a new Scooby-Doo movie got underway. The movie’s first director, Cervone, was brought on board in August 2015, and Dax Shepard was added in September 2016 as a co-director. Shepard left the project in October of last year. In March 2019, many of the cast members were hired.
What about the Scoob Plot?
A young, depressed Shaggy Rogers befriends and adopts a young, talking Great Dane who is abandoned; he names the dog Scooby-Doo. Before entering a spooky mansion on Halloween, Scooby and Shaggy get to know three young detectives – Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley. The children discover a ghost within, whom they manage to capture and identify as a costumed thief Mr. Rigby. They decided to create an organization called Mystery Inc. to work on mysteries as a team after being inspired by the event.
Later on, Mystery Inc. opens for business. Entrepreneur Simon Cowell assesses the gang’s skills during a meeting with investors, but he deems Scooby and Shaggy ineffective and declines to work with them. As a result, the two feel irrelevant and leave Mystery Inc. Later that evening, Rottens, a race of contour scorpion robots, torment Shaggy and Scooby at the Takamoto Bowl. The two are saved by Dee Dee Skyes, one of their childhood heroes, Dynomutt, and Brian Cowe, who is the successor of the retired senior superhero Blue Falcon and has taken on the mantle. The Great Dane’s secret connection to the paranormal enigma surrounding Cerberus’ three skulls is revealed by Dee, who discloses that The Rottens are owned by super-criminal Dick Dastardly, who intends to kidnap Scooby.
What is the Scoob Sypnosis?
While being held captive and harassed by Dick Dastardly and The Rottens at an old Funland that The Rottens are tormenting, Scooby, Shaggy, Blue Falcon, Dynomutt, and Dee Dee all find a clue that hints at Scooby’s significance as a key towards something. While thinking back on their enjoyable days spent together, Fred, Daphne, and Velma are disintegrating in the absence of Scooby and Shaggy. The trio learns that Scooby and Shaggy are working with The Falcon Force to look into the mystery surrounding Scooby himself, and Dastardly pulls them over under the guise of a police officer before locking them up inside his airship and terrorizing them with The Rottens. Through Dynomutt, they communicate with Dee Dee after escaping with assistance from one of the Rottens. The crew then learns that Dastardly’s second objective is to free Muttley, his dog, who was imprisoned during an attempt to take the treasures of the Underworld by opening the gates to the Underworld. Scooby is the final surviving ancestor of Alexander the Great’s beloved dog, Peritas. Thus Dastardly needs him to open the gates.
As soon as they reach Messick Mountain, Scooby, Blue Falcon, Dynomutt, and Dee Dee descend through the mountain’s underground chamber to reach Mystery Island, a mysterious Mesozoic island.
