The teenage group of sleuths, along with their trusty Great Dane Scooby, roll out the mystery van once more for an upcoming animated film, solely titled “Scoob!” Revealed in an exclusive Fandango spread, a multitude of images from the forthcoming project showcase a relatively clean art direction and a whole new modernized era of the classic mystery solvers.
According to Fandango, the Tony Cervone-helmed animated movie’s premise will follow the gang’s early beginnings. The site reports that Scooby-Doo and his teenage group of detectives “must foil a diabolical plot revolving around a ghost dog known as Cerberus, discovering Scooby’s secret legacy and their own epic destiny along the way.”
It looks like the trailer for Scoob is finally coming on Monday. Warner Bros. Animation has also released some early images from the film and the animation looks fantastic. Also, I love how good Daphne looks. They really nailed Mystery Inc. in CG. pic.twitter.com/NAXxuhdlTR

Initiated in 1969 as a longtime mystery series, Scooby-Doo follows a group of four young adults and their talking dog as they tackle small-town spooks and strange occurrences. These so-called mishaps are, however, oftentimes easily summed up by devilish individuals in monster costumes. Created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the mostly-animated franchise has long stressed the importance of friendship, working in unison, and standing up for oneself in the face of adversity.
Fans have long awaited the silver screen reprisal of TV’s most beloved animated mystery crew. Last seen on film via 2004’s “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed,” the sequel to 2002’s “Scooby-Doo,” the mystery gang has seemingly done away with their live-action renditions, aiming for their more classic roots. The well-regarded television series, 2000’s “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” was the absolute catalyst of the franchise, serving as the group’s most prized adaptions and underscoring their value in television.
“Scoob!” stars upcoming “King of the Jungle” actor Zac Efron as Fred, “Jane the Virgin” actress Gina Rodríguez playing Velma, Will Forte as Shaggy, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne and Frank Welker barking for the titular Great Dane, Scooby-Doo. Additional cast members include such weighty Hollywood names as Mark Wahlberg, Tracy Morgan, Jason Isaacs, Kiersey Clemons, and Ken Jeong.
A trailer will be released on November 11 showcasing even more of the fun and sleuthing the pair of teenage detectives will unexpectedly fall into.
The Mystery Inc crew will be solving crimes and devouring Scooby snacks in the US come May 15, 2020.
