2. Scoob (2020)
‘Scoob’ is an upcoming animated comedy adventure that is being helmed by Tony Cervone. The movie is based on the characters created by Hanna-Barbera. For those unaware, the mystery-solving teenagers, Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Velma, and their talking Great Dane, Scooby, first appeared almost half a century ago, in 1969, in the animated series ‘Scooby-Doo: Where Are You?’. While not much is known about the plot of the upcoming movie, we know that the main characters will team up with other characters in the Hanna-Barbera universe to put a stop to the evil plans of Dick Dastardly, in an attempt to save the world.
Amanda Seyfried lends her voice to Daphne Blake. The other castmembers are stellar, with Zac Efron voicing Fred Jones, Will Forte voicing Norville ‘Shaggy’ Rogers and Gina Rodriguez voicing Velma Dinkley. ‘Scoob’ is slated to hit the theaters on May 15, 2020. Notably, there have been two Scooby-Doo movies prior to this, titled ‘Scooby-Doo’ and ‘Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed’. Since they were both rather successful, it gives us hope that ‘Scoob’ will draw in many audiences as well.
1. You Should Have Left (TBA)
‘You Should Have Left’ is a horror mystery directed by David Koepp. It is based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Kehlmann.
