The Mystery Machine and Mystery Inc are back on the screen that is sure to make you howl “Scooby Dooby Doo” in your head. It has been so long since we saw the meddling kids in a movie that Uncle Ben has died about four times and a whole cinematic universe completed its decade long arc (yes, you are that old). It has been 16 years since we saw the live-action feature of Scooby-Doo where they find themselves in Coolville hunting an old foe. The trailer of the upcoming film Scoob! opens to the sound of Without You by Avicii and they could not have hit a righter note. So it is time to grab a bunch of Scooby snacks because we are ready to tell you everything we know so far about the movie.

A Whole New Cinematic Universe

All the fans who are still enjoying the grand cinematic paradise that Marvel Cinematic universe created, hold your breath. There’s a new cinematic universe coming to town and it is going to amazing. We have had Hanna Barbara characters on and off in the form of cartoons on Cartoon Network or a few live-action movies. Even characters from The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Wacky Races will come to the big screen.

The Cast

We are a little disappointed that Matthew Lillard could not voice Shaggy, but we are very excited about the new voice cast. Will Forte will be the new voice of Shaggy while Scooby will be voiced by Frank Welker, who had voiced Fred Jones in the original 1969 series. Mark Wahlberg will be voicing Blue Falcon and Ken Jeong will be the voice behind Falcon’s sidekick Dynomutt. Gina Rodriguez, Zac Efron, and Amanda Seyfried are voicing Velma, Fred, and Daphne respectively. Jason Isaacs of Harry Potter fame is playing one of our beloved villainous characters Dick Dastardly. We also have Dee Dee Sykes (Kiersey Clemons), a member of Teen Angels and Captain Caveman voiced by Tracy Morgan.

The Plot

In the latest film, we get to see the origin story of Scooby and Shaggy’s friendship – a friendship so intense that it makes us feel like the third wheel. We also get answers to the age-old question – What came first – Scooby or Scooby snack? We see how the duo meets the rest of the gang and solves ‘supernatural’ mysteries together. The trailer shows us how Scooby and Shaggy find themselves in an Ikea-like spaceship with a clean, modern aesthetic and fresh blue color palette. This is not the only time they talk about relevant trends and topics. With jokes about Netflix and Daphne’s dad having a drinking problem, it truly feels that the series has grown up with us. The synopsis further tells us that Dick Dastardly is up to no good and is planning on unleashing the ghost dog Cerebrus and bringing about a Dogpocalypse. There is also a little more to Scooby’s history than we know.

The Release Date

Initially, the movie was set to release on the 15th of May and has now been pushed without a confirmed date.
