    So, the trailer for what is intended to be the first film in the Hanna-Barbera universe is out. I love the idea of bringing all these old characters back to the forefront, but I fear they're rushing this and pulling a Dawn of Justice/Mummy by inserting too many characters. That, and the voice cast isn't exactly wowing me.



    Incidentally, if this can beat the odds and be a hit (which will be a challenge given the slump Warner Animation Group is in), who has the rights to build a new Scooby Doo ride. Do Universal and Six Flags both still have them?

    I don't think either of them..properly own the ride rights. Could be very wrong, but I think Universal would have to renegotiate.

    Love the trailer, excited to see how it works out.

    This was way cuter than I expected, plus it seems self aware in terms of its humor. Pretty excited tbh!

    I have to say, it looks cute for sure, but I'm just really hung up on the fact they didn't even approach Matthew Lillard about the role of Shaggy; He had such a bond with the role, and frankly he and Casey are the only two Shaggys I have ever cared for. He just was so committed to the legacy of the role, it is a shame he wasn't tapped for it.

    I'm sure Will Forte will do fine, it just will take some getting used to, I suppose

    It looks cute for sure, but I am also not a fan of some of the voices. As mentioned above Shaggy......is terrible. If you don't have Matthew Lillard......don't do it. Also, Scooby has too many words. Him having full sentences is throwing me off, and the voicing is......bad. Im sure it will do well, but for me growing up with Scooby.....going to pass.

    As far as Scooby, I talked with @Alicia about it, and it seems like something they're trying to do more and more now with the animated shows and straight-home films when it comes to Scooby's voice.

    And as for not having Matthew Lillard, I find it funny considering the same thing happened for when he was first casted as Shaggy, for the original live action Scooby-Doo film. I'm willing to give Forte a chance.

    I wish we knew why they didnt get Matthew a chance. Hes been with the character for so long.
    I really wish we found out their reason for not getting him

    Trailer looked wonderful for me

    We're getting (sort of) a Blue Falcon movie. All you millennials with your heretical live-action Scooby Doo take your complaints about Matthew Lillard into a room somewhere, let us old Gen Xers revel in that. I wasn't sure anyone else alive even remembered who Blue Falcon was, let alone that he'd ever get a new movie.

    With how big retro stuff is in today’s culture I can’t believe they didn’t just try and do an HD version of the original animation/art style.

    I'm more excited for seeing how the heck they handle Dick Dastardly, as he's actually being included in the official castlist.
