Scoob!, the first entry in the Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe, is out and it’s Scooby Dooby Great! The animation in this movie is beautiful. The style of the animation looks modern with vibrant colors and stunning settings and my favorite, Mystery Machine. The animation is best on the Mystery Machine because it heightens the object’s beauty. The feel of the movie is very upbeat and fun. The beginning of Scoob! stayed true to the original premise.However the ending did not stay as true to the original because they fight the real supernatural being rather than a human pretending to be a monster. The casting in this movie is excellent. Jason Issacs did a great Dick Dastardly, and Ken Jeong is amazing as Dynomutt and his dialogue is spectaculor. It was fun seeing him do a serious character for a change. One of the best scenes in the movie is at the beginning on Halloween when they solve their first mystery after meeting each other . Another great scene appears near the end of the movie when they fight Cerberus. The theme of this movie is Friendship, an important concept right now, as it is something everyone needs to get through these trying times. Throughout the movie, we see other characters from the Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe like Dick Dastardly and Muttley, Captain Caveman, and during the end credits, Atom Ant, The Great Grape Ape, Jabberjaw, Dr. Frankenstein, and Dr. Benton Quest ,who we see is currently developing R.O.S.I.E. If you like movies like Big Hero 6 then you will like Scoob! By the end of the movie, it looks like we have another mystery on our hands. That mystery is what will be next in the Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe. Will it be The Flintstones, or maybe The Jetsons, or will it be Scoob! 2 ? As a result of its amazing elements, I would rate this movie an 8/10.
