In response to the demand for at-home entertainment during this unprecedented time, Warner Bros. has decided to make its upcoming animated film, “Scoob!,” available both to own and on-demand via digital formats in the U.S. and Canada on May 15, its original theatrical release date.
“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,” said Ann Sarnoff, chair and CEO of Warner Bros. “We know fans are eager to see ‘Scoob!’ and we’re delighted we can deliver this feel-good movie to families to enjoy while they’re home together.”
“Scoob!” will be available for a 48-hour rental for $19.99 or $24.99 for digital ownership starting Friday, May 15. The film will be available on participating digital platforms.
The first full-length animated Scooby-Doo film for the big screen, “Scoob!” tells the story of how Shaggy and Scooby first met and how they joined young detectives Fred, Velma and Daphne to form the famous Mystery Inc. Fast-forward to the future, with hundreds of solved cases and just as many adventures, Scooby and the gang take on their most challenging mystery ever: a plot to unleash the ghost dog Cerberus upon the world. As they race to stop the “dogpocalypse,” the group discovers that Scooby has a secret legacy and destiny that’s greater than anyone could ever have imagined.
The film stars Will Forte (“Booksmart,” TV’s “The Last Man on Earth”) as Shaggy; two-time Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg (“The Fighter,” “The Departed”) as Blue Falcon; Jason Isaacs (the “Harry Potter” films, TV’s “The OA”) as Dick Dastardly; Gina Rodriguez (“Deepwater Horizon,” TV’s “Jane the Virgin”) as Velma; Zac Efron (“The Greatest Showman,” “Hairspray”) as Fred; Amanda Seyfried (the “Mamma Mia!” films, “Mean Girls”) as Daphne; Kiersey Clemons (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” TV’s “Angie Tribeca”) as Falcon Fury pilot Dee Dee Skyes; Ken Jeong (“Crazy Rich Asians,” “The Hangover” trilogy) as the Falcon Force’s Dynomutt; Tracy Morgan (“What Men Want,” TV’s “30 Rock”) as Captain Caveman; and Frank Welker (TV’s Scooby-Doo; the “Transformers” franchise) as Scooby-Doo.
