The latest entry into the long-running Scooby-Doo franchise, simply titled Scoob! will skip theaters and head straight to VOD. The feature will be available next month and is yet another film who’s theatrical run has either been delayed or cancelled due to the pandemic.
Check out what Ann Sarnoff, WB CEO had to say on the situation below.
“While we’re all eager to be able to once again show our films in theaters, we’re navigating new, unprecedented times which call for creative thinking and adaptability in how we distribute our content. We know fans are eager to see Scoob! and we’re delighted we can deliver this feel-good movie for families to enjoy while they’re home together.”
I love Scooby-Doo, but I am at the age now where my theater trips are reserved for a few certain franchises (Star Wars, superheroes, and Pirates). So this news s good for me. The news is also likely a good thing for parents and children stuck at home as it gives them something new to watch.
The film looks like it’ll be a fun adventure and the appearance of the film appears to be an aspect that was given a little something extra, as the animation is gorgeous. The film also may be the beginnings of, and this is weird to say, a Hanna-Barbera shared universe. While it sounds strange could end up being something really cool.
Such a timeless cartoon. Hundreds of years from now, it’s likely that Scooby, Shaggy, and the best of the Mystery Gang will still be foiling the plans of greedy business owners posing as otherworldly beings in order to carry out their devious plans.
