Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released the official trailer, which premiered on SyFY Wire, revealing what promises to be a wildly fun Halloween adventure for the whole family.
In addition to Elvira, the iconic Mistress of the Dark (aka Cassandra Peterson), as herself, the film also stars Bill Nye the Science Guy as himself, along with the great Frank Welker once again voicing Scooby and Fred, and Scream‘s Matthew Lillard reprising his role from the first two live action Scooby-Doo movies as Shaggy.
In the film, when toxic ooze brings the Crystal Cove pumpkin patch to life, it’s up to Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne (Grey Griffin), Velma (Kate Micucci), and Fred to save the day. In investigating who’s behind these high-flying jack-o-lanterns and their king-sized pumpkin leader, the gang teams up with Elvira and soon comes face to face with Doctor Jonathan Crane, aka Scarecrow (voiced by Dwight Schultz), a recent escapee from Arkham Asylum.
This amazingly marks Scooby and the gang’s first official full-length Halloween movie mystery.
The film was written, produced, and directed by Maxwell Atoms, creator of Cartoon Network’s Evil Con Carne and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. Sam Register (Ben 10, Batman: The Killing Joke, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai) serves as executive producer.
An exact release date has not yet been announced, but Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo! will arrive on Digital and DVD this fall.
This is clearly going to be a sweet and spooky Halloween treat, and we can’t wait.
