Growing up, we all loved Scooby Dooby Doo. The very concept of a cartoon that was about people and a dog unearthing people masquerading as ghosts was so fresh – it’s still fresh today. The franchise has done everything, including making a sensible and entertaining spin-off with WWE. Now, there’s a big-screen reboot happening. titled Scoob! Zac Efron will be voicing Fred Jones. Gina Rodriquez is doing the voice of Velma Dinkley, Amanda Seyfried is up for Daphne. Frank Welker is doing the work for Scooby Doo and Will Forte will be voicing Shaggy. This is not a horror film, but a fun, positive take on every horror film we ever saw.

I have a very positive feeling about this one, looking at the first image. The graphics and the character modeling is close to the original, so there’s every chance that the makers are just rebooting the film franchise and keeping the stories and the original charm intact. There have been two Scooby Doo mainstream releases, but they didn’t do too well at the box office. Its also interesting to see that the makers are using animation and not going all out with a live-action cast. Kelly Fremon Craig has written the screenplay. Tom Servne directs. Kelly has never been associated with a horror film.
The other characters in the film are Captain Caveman, Ken Jeong, Kierse Clemons, Blue Falcon, and Dick Dastardly. The 90s cartoon fans will realize that these names are from other Hanna Barbera classics. So you get the drift, these characters will have cameos or even main roles in the film. Mark Wahlberg voices Blue Falcon, by the way. The film releases on May 15, 2020. It’s interesting to see that someone is remaking a cartoon franchise from the eighties and the nineties. We had several superheroes, fantasy and horror comic series. Do we now see a Penelope Pitstop spinoff happening?
