Another Scooby-Doo! movie is on its way, and this time it will include several other Hanna Barbera characters from through the years.
Rather than being another straight-to-video affair like the classic (?) Scooby-Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery or Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery, Scoob is set to kick-start a Hanna Barbera Cinematic Universe.
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.
As the headline alludes, it’s also set to see Hanna Barbera worlds intermingling, with the big bad in this one not some sort of mummy or gh-gh-gh-gh-ghost, but rather Wacky Races ne’er-do-well Dick Dastardly. We can just imagine the mischief that his canine sidekick Muttley and Scooby-Doo might get up to.
Captain Caveman, along with Blue Falcon and Dog Wonder Dynomutt, are also slated to appear, with more expected to be announced.
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 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 currently pencilled in for a 2020 release. Jinkies!
