‘Scoob!’ Star Amanda Seyfried on Why It Took So Long to Return to Animation

     May 17, 2020

It’s been seven years since I had the pleasure of talking to Amanda Seyfried for her very first feature voice acting role in Epic, but she’s finally back in the animation game for Warner Bros. Animation’s new Scooby-Doo movie, Scoob. Seyfried voices Daphne in the film, which not only reveals how the Mystery Inc. team first came together, but also pits them against Hanna-Barbera villain Dick Dastardly. In order to save the world from a potential “dogpocalypse,” they’ve got to figure out a way to stop Dastardly from releasing the infamous ghost dog, Cerberus.  

With Scoob! now available to watch on Premium Video on Demand and to own on premium digital, I got the chance to hop on a Zoom call with Seyfried to talk about her journey from Epic to Scoob. Check out the video at the topic of this article to hear about the things Seyfried found most challenging while making Epic and the very helpful skills she picked up between that film and making Scoob. On top of that, Seyfried also weighs in on whether or not Karen actually wrote anything in the Mean Girls Burn Book and offers up a high cholesterol recipe that sounds downright delicious!

  • What’s the biggest difference between her experience making Epic and Scoob?
  • Does Seyfried think Karen ever wrote a single entry in the Burn Book in Mean Girls?
