Scooby-Doo has been through a lot since his premiere in 1969. The cartoon has had reboot after reboot, films, shorts, a "kids" version (A Pup Named Scooby-Doo), live-action movies and sometimes questionable crossovers, not to mention more references in pop culture than you can count.

The last theatrical release where we saw the gang was in 2004 with Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed,a sequel to the 2002 Scooby-Doo. That was a live-action version with Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini. While the movie made back its budget significantly, it only holds a 22% on Rotten Tomatoes and won a Razzie Award for Worst Sequel. There was a third film planned, but after the disappointing reception, the studio scrapped the idea.

Now Scooby is coming back to the big screen to win back moviegoing audiences. The biggest change audiences will notice is that the film is entirely animated this time, as opposed to the live-action version which only used CGI for Scooby. Reel FX, known for their work with The Book of Life (2014), Sherlock Gnomes (2018), and UglyDolls (2019), will be providing the animation for the film. 

Scoob is slated to be the first entry in a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe, which is also planned to include The FlintstonesThe Jetsons and Wacky Races. While Scoob is the only feature with a release date, it will still include other characters from the Hanna-Barbera world. It isn't clear if they will be cameos or significant roles, but so far we know we'll see Captain Caveman (voiced by Tracy Morgan), Dynomutt (Ken Jeong) and Blue Falcon (Mark Wahlburg).

Frank Welker, the original voice of Scooby-Doo, will be returning as everyone's favorite mangy dog. As for the gang, we can expect Zac Efron (Greatest Showman, High School Musical) as Fred, Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin, Carmen Sandiego) as Velma, Will Forte (Saturday Night Live) as Shaggy, and Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) as Daphne. 

The movie is scheduled to be released on May 15, 2020. Take a look at the released stills below.

Love the Doo! They all look pretty great with the exception of Fred. Fred still looks good, but I feel like all of the others got updated & Fred had a complete makeover! LOL Anyway, I'm looking forward to the film in 2020. Good luck, Scoob!

Don Messick was the original voice of Scooby Doo.
But Frank is keeping Don's legacy alive as Scoobert "Scooby" Doo.

I've never been a die hard Scooby Doo fan, but I did like them when I was young... I will give this one a chance!

I have low expectations. Here's hoping for Inch-High Private Eye, Speed Buggy and Jabber Jaws.

Wow! I am not watching any of them. Keep ruining classic characters, though.
Hire lots of people with no knowledge of the originals.
Here is Ken dressed as Fred.
My airplane! It was my barbie's house
My sisters had it, too.

Don Messick was the original voice of Scooby Doo.
Frank Welker did the voice of Freddie for decades beginning with the original series.
He began doing the voice of Scooby after Messick's passing.
