The live-action/CG hybrid Scooby-Doo made $276 million worldwide for Warner Bros. back in 2002. The sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, grossed $181 million in 2004. As much as critics dumped on the colorful mess, that is enough money that you knew the studio would return to the well before a decade passed. To their credit, WB is taking the franchise in a different direction. Variety reports the studio is developing an animated Scooby-Doo feature film. It is not specified in the report, but I assume it will be a computer-animated feature—that way I can be pleasantly surprised if the new Scooby-Doo turns out to be hand-drawn animation in the style of the original Hanna-Barbera series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, that premiered in 1969. Scooby-Doo was a big part of my childhood, so I will root for a fun, fresh adaptation.
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, who produced the 2002 entry, return to produce the reboot. Matt Lieberman will write the script. Hit the jump for some groovy theme song nostalgia.
