The minor characters that have already been cast are Captain Caveman (Tracy Morgan), Dynomutt (Ken Jeong), Dee Dee Sykes (Kersey Clemons), Blue Falcon (Mark Wahlberg) and Dick Dastardly (Jason Isaacs).
Fans might expect some updates on the classic team in line with Warner Bros’ diversity initiative that was announced in 2018, when they became the first major Hollywood studio to adopt a company-wide diversity policy both on and off-screen.
An obvious change to make would be ending the dichotomy between the plain but clever Velma versus the gorgeous (but not too bright) Daphne, bringing more dimensions to these stereotypical female characters. Maybe Daphne now codes with Karlie Kloss in her spare time, or perhaps Velma can’t stop watching Love Island?
Warner’s diversity initiative also includes a promise to feature more members of the LGBTQ+ community. Daphne and Fred’s romantic tension is a key aspect of the story, but it’s possible that Shaggy, Velma, or a minor character will come out in the new film.
Who is directing Scoob?
Tony Corvine, who has already directed for the Scooby-Doo franchise, will direct the new film. Chris Colombus, Richard Suckle, Allison Abbate, Charles Roven, and Pam Coats will produce.
Who wrote the script for Scoob?
Kelly Fremon Craig, known for writing The Edge of Seventeen, has penned the script, whilst Matt Lieberman came up with the plot.
Scooby-Doo has been historically drawn as a Great Dane, but without any of the attributes that make the dogs prize-winning. This explains Scooby’s sloped back, soft jaw, and bowed legs. Expect his humanoid opposable thumbs and ability to speak to feature in the new film too, though.
