The Movie ‘Scoob’ Goes Straight to On-Demand?

Hooray! One of my favorite animations has remained steadfast, exceedingly popular. I watched it 24-7 when I was a little lad, and I still find myself tuning in, being obsessed with newer episodes, and even all the earlier shows regarding the renowned detective dog and his best friend, or should I say Shaggy and his best friend Scooby-doo.

Anyway's, how can you not adore this awesome colorful animation? It has everything and more that seemingly reflects a magnificent show:

It has a superb mixture of the supernatural, the paranormal, mystery hunting, monsters, creatures, and mysteries of what I call, 'a light-hardened macabre.' And to top it off, it's pretty damn funny. Shaggy is quite the character and escapades rather interesting humor. He seriously cracks me up. 

Besides, the show is a great flick to watch when you want to escape the unforgiving side-effects of the coronavirus.

 I candidly find myself watching Scooby-doo way more than I should. I can't help myself. My five-year-old granddaughter thinks I'm absurdly crazy. She stares at me like I'm severely mental. "Papa, how come you watch Scooby-doo so much?" "Why don't you try and watch something better like 'True' or Masha and the Bear?" My reply to her is, "so your saying you don't love scooby-doo?" She mutters back, "no papa, what I'm saying is I 'like' scooby-doo, but I don't 'love' him the way you do. Nobody in this whole-wide-world loves scooby-doo like you do papa." "You're his biggest fan." I looked at her for a few moments and said, "ya, your probably right, my baby girl." She giggled for what seemed like an eternity.


Anyway, the animated Scooby-Doo film “Scoob!” will indeed bypass theaters and premiere directly on digital platforms, Warner Brothers said Tuesday, making it the latest studio to experiment with an on-demand release, during the pandemic shutdown.

“Scoob” had formerly been set to start in theaters on May 15. But instead, on the same date, it will be available for a $20 digital rental, and a $25 digital purchase.

Warner Brothers join Universal Pictures and the Walt Disney Company in testing the video on demand, while theaters remain shuttered, and moviegoers are locked down at home. 

Incidentally, so far, the largest movies to make it big, have been family films. Universal earlier this month sent “Trolls World Tour” to on-demand. Disney has said “Artemis Fowl” will go straight to streaming on Disney Plus in June.

"Scoob," which includes a voice cast including Will Strength, Gina Rodriguez, Zac Efron, and Amanda Seyfried, follows how Scooby and Shaggy initially met. 

Warner Brothers selected not to send "Scoob!" directly to its spouting help, HBO Max, despite the fact that the planning almost lines up, dispatches on May 27.
