The Scooby-Doo franchise is back with a new anime, Scoob. Tony Cervone directs the anime, and it was awaited for a long while, and finally, you can watch the movie. A theatrical release was expected, but there is nothing that is going right at this time. The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for the filmmakers to release the movies in theatres. There has been a lot of films that were expecting a theatrical release, but they have to release the movies online.
What’s the deal with free 5 Minutes Of Scoob!?
Since the theatrical release doesn’t seem to be possible at this time, the producers found a way out to give a sneak-peek to the audience. They have uploaded the first five minutes of the movie, and fans can watch it for free. It is streaming on PVOD. Well, if you are a scooby-doo fan, you are going to fall for the movies in those five minutes. The movie begins with sandy beaches of California with peoples moving around, and then the typical scooby-doo things happen. Scooby-doo can be seen running and a cop chasing him for stealing meat from the food stall.
It also sets the premise of the movie, and the story continues with the chase and scooby-doo crashes with a man. Then comes shaggy in the picture where he is sitting lonely in a sandcastle, and then the moment arrives when scooby-doo meets shaggy. Then the encounter happens, and shaggy gives his sandwich to scooby-doo. In return, scooby-doo also gives his piece of meat to him.
This lays the foundation of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo’s friendship. Then comes the policeman and tells shaggy about scooby-doo. The cop tells shaggy that they have to handover the stray dogs to the concerned authorities, and they are going to take care of him.
This was the moment when Shaggy names the dog scooby-dooby-doo. This happens out of the blue, and even shaggy didn’t know that he is going to come up with a name like that. Well, the movie features other friends too, and it includes Kiersey Clemons as Dee Dee Sykes, Mark Wahlberg as Brian /Blue Falcon, Dog Wonder, and Tracy Morgan as Captain Caveman, Jason Isaacs as Dick Dastardly, Ken Jeong as Dynoumutt.
And the VoiceOver was done by Will Forte as Shaggy Rogers, Zac Efron as Fred Jones, Gina Rodriguez as Velma Dinkley, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne Blake. So if we see the storyline, it is pivoted around their quest of a ghost dog.
This is the focal point of the movie, and there is a brilliant climax that makes it a winner. The climax is related to the fact that Scooby-doo has a much bigger role to play than any of the friends would have ever imagined. The movie has both positive and negative reviews, and you can watch the free five minutes to decide if you want to see more.
