Those meddling kids are at it again. This time they are working to save one…or two actually, of their own. Scooby (voiced by Frank Welker) and Shaggy (voiced by Will Forte) have been kidnapped, so it is up to Fred (voiced by Zac Efron), Velma (voiced by Gina Rodriguez) and Daphne (voiced by Amanda Seyfried) to save them. But first…
We go right back to the origin story. The story of how Shaggy and Scooby became best of pals. How they teamed up with the others to become a top notch crime solving gang. The formation of Mystery Incorporated. Has it really taken this long to get that story? Wow!
The origin story is great. It is when the story starts going off in a million different directions that the wheels come off a little bit. But certainly not the worst Scooby Doo there has been over its 50 years of existence.
What is great is the animation. Plenty of colour and quite dynamic.
There is plenty of star power here in this animated feature length film. Besides the ones already mentioned there is also Mark Wahlberg, Tracy Morgan, Ken Jeong, Christina Hendricks, Henry Winkler, and Jason Isaacs. Oh and Simon Cowell as…well…Simon Cowell.
