Scooby Doo might be coming back in the near future. A new Scooby Doo movie may be in the works at Warner Bros. The untitled new film is the newest in theatrical production since Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Currently, there have been some new announcements made regarding casting for the new animated film. There has been confirmation Gina Rodriguez is working on voice casting the role of Velma. Will Forte is announced to be working on the voice casting for Shaggy. Most recently, Rodriguez has been noticed for her role in the remake of Miss Bala. She most famously did her role as Jane on the CW’s show Jane the Virgin. Will Forte is most remembered for his time on Saturday Night Live. Forte earned three Primetime Emmy nominations for his work on The Last Man on Earth for the FOX network as well.
What’s most interesting about the new untitled Scooby-Doo animated film is Tracy Morgan’s appearance in the cast. Tracy Morgan is voice casting the character of Captain Caveman. Captain Caveman appeared on the late 1970’s tv series Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels. There is speculation due to the wording in the description of the film, many other Hanna Barbera characters will be involved with this film as well.
“The Mystery Inc. gang joins forces with other heroes of the Hanna Barbera universe to save the world from Dick Dastardly and his evil plans.”
But, what has happened to the members we grew up with from the 2000’s live-action Scooby Doo movies? Well, for one Matthew Lillard finding out the voice role of Shaggy has been changed was too much to handle. Matthew Lillard went to Twitter, once finding the information when everyone else did, to mention his frustration. Many fans of the fandom expressed their concerns and opinions on the new casting information for the animated film.
The animated film itself will not be out for a while as voice casting has just started. There is also no confirmation on a release date for the film except for an expected release window of May 2020. We will have to wait to see what Will Forte can bring to the Shaggy character and if Shaggy’s power will be too much for Will Forte to contain. For now, keep reading and keep keeping on!
