    It was announced today that an animated feature Scooby-Doo movie is in production and is aimed for a September 21, 2018 release. It will be produced by Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, and Allison Abbate, directed by Tony Cervone, and executive produced by Dan Povenmire. The screenplay will be written by Matt Lieberman. Here's the source:

    This is something I've been hoping for for a while and I'm glad it's actually happening. I like Cervone's and Povenmire's previous work, so I feel they can do a good job with this movie. I don't know much about the others known to be involved, but those I am familiar with make me feel good about this.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    The Scooby Doo Express is showing no signs of slowing down. This is good news for Scooby fans, but it would be nice if Warner Brothers would show some love to some of the other Hanna-Barbera properties besides just Scooby and Tom & Jerry.

    I agree. Scooby and Tom and Jerry are my #1 and #2 respectively, so you'll likely never see me complaining about more, but I'd love to see new stuff from other shows as well.

    Why are they not saying whether its CG or 2D?

    I'm guessing it will be 2D seeing as Scooby is already popular and director Tony Cervone has only ever worked with 2D (he directed many of the Scooby and T&J DTVs).

    Yeah but this is a theatrical film. Even if its getting released in September, I find it hard to believe WB Pictures releasing a 2D animated film in theaters for a wide release...in this day and age.

    If it is CGI, I would like it to be in the same style as the Peanuts movie.

    I doubt it. That one is being done by Blue Sky. Not only that, the look they are going for is to mimic the art style of Charles Schultz's artwork.

    I think what you would rather see is them going a CG route so it looks more like the 1960s rather than straying too far from the original designs and really making it look big and really ultra detailed and pristine.

    That art style is a deliberate attempt to mimic the simplistic look of the old Peanuts specials, which wouldn't work for Scooby-Doo, because Scooby was never drawn nor animated like that.

    CGI could work on Scooby, provided the artists and animators went for a cartoonish look rather than a realistic one like those live-action movies tried.

    This movie already has 7 strikes against it.

    STRIKE 1: the 1999-2001 direct-to-DVD movies.
    STRIKE 2: the theatrical live-action movies.
    STRIKE 3: the 2001-2009 direct-to-DVD movies.
    STRIKE 4: Get a Clue.
    STRIKE 5: the tv lice-action movies.
    STRIKE 6: the post-2009 direct-to-DVD movies.
    STRIKE 7: Mystery Inc.

    So far Warner Bros only did 2 good Scoobys: Zombie Island and What's New.

    How come you separated the movies between 1999-2001, 2001-2009, and 2009-present?

    There are three periods.
    The 1998-2001 era is when the monsters were real

    The only good Scooby Doo Movies, in my opinion, are the ones from 98 to 2001 and the ones from 2010 to now. Every other Scooby Doo Movie, in my opinion, sucks. I like Scooby Doo, but, he is awfully overrated.

    Some of you are missing a big point here.

    The EP is Dan Povenmire, 1/2 of the creative team behind Phineas & Ferb. Talk about an influx of new energy!

    Scooby---overrated? To each their own, but 46 years says he be anything from overrated.

    Nice to see a Scooby Doo is heading back to theaters, but at least its not going to be a live action film as its better animated.

    Otherwise I wonder if more DTV films are still on the way for Scooby Doo for the 2016 and 17 years or are they going to dedicate time to write the 2018 film.

    I didn't mean mimic the Peanuts style, I meant mimic the old Scooby style like Blue Sky did with Peanuts.

    If you want a studio to mimic the animation style of Scooby Doo, Where Are You?, Warner Brothers could do that easily.
