In order not to delay their plans for 2020, the Warner Bros studios decided to launch the premiere of the movie “Scoob”, based on the popular dog Scooby-Doo, on May 15, regardless of whether the theaters remain closed due to the coronavirus.
Part of the anime’s appeal is in the star cast that lent their voices to the characters. As we know Scooby-Doo is a dog that accompanies a group of four researchers: Daphne, Vilma, Fred, and Shaggi.
Fred was voiced by Zac Efron, Daphne by Amanda Seyfried, Vilma by Gina Rodríguez, Shaggi by comedian Will Forte and Scooby-Doo will be voiced by experienced animation actor Frank Welker, also known for voicing Megatron, in Transformers.
Although everyone knows what the story is about, “Scoob!” It presents a novelty, and it is a trip to the origin of the group since it had not been told how the members met and their beginnings to solving mysteries.
According to Warner, in addition to knowing the origin of this group of friends, they will solve another mystery: “A plot to free the Cerberus ghost dog from the world. As they compete to stop this global “apocalypse,” the gang discovers that Scooby has a secret legacy and an epic fate greater than anyone imagined. ”
Warner’s strategy is to achieve the premiere of this family film in times of quarantine, as happened a few weeks ago with the premiere of “Trolls World Tour” by Universal Picture.
Although “Scoob” will be released in the digital world, it is not free. The film will be available on Amazon for digital purchase of $ 25 and a digital rental of up to 48 hours for 20.
The producer expects a good acceptance of the film and wants “that families can enjoy it while spending time at home.”
