We now have first images from the upcoming kick-off point for a new Hanna Barbera Cinematic Universe. It’s a new take on Scooby-Doo!, simply entitled Scoob.
Yes, no more straight to video antics for Mystery Inc, as this one’s big screen all the way, baby.
It’s set to be an origin story for the food-loving partnership between Shaggy and his doggy pal Scooby-Doo, and when they met Velma, Daphne and Fred to launch Mystery Inc. Meanwhile, the Mystery Machine appears to have had an attack of the Ecto-1s with all that new equipment up top.
As well as featuring Scoob and the gang, other Hanna Barbera characters are also getting in on the action, including Wacky Races ne’er-do-well Dick Dastardly, Captain Caveman, Blue Falcon and Dog Wonder Dynomutt.
The voice cast is taking shape nicely, with Zac Efron signed on as Fred, Gina Rodriguez as Velma, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne, Will Forte as Shaggy and Frank Welker continuing to provide Scoob’s gruff-gruff tones. Meanwhile, Mark Wahlberg will become Blue Falcon, Ken Jeong is Dynomutt, Tracy Morgan is Captain Caveman and Jason Isaacs is Dick Dastardly.
Scoob is set to scope out Australian cinemas from May 14, 2020.
