Scoob! trailer traces origin of Shaggy, Scooby Doo's friendship in Warner Bros' animated film
Tony Cervone's Scoob introduces the origins of Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne before they became the world's favourite amateur detectives
The first trailer of Warner Bros' upcoming animated movie Scoob! has been released.
The trailer introduces viewers to the origins of expert monster-unmaskers before they set out to become a team of amateur sleuths who get to the bottom of mysterious incidents, investigating haunted houses, mines, and fairgrounds.
The trailer opens with the younger version of Shaggy playing at a beach when he discovers Scooby as a pup. When a police officer is about to impound the pub, Shaggy rescues him, and blurts out he is not a stray. Unconvinced from the act, the officer asks him the name of the pupper. Shaggy looks at a box of cookies labeled "Scooby Snacks" before answering "Scooby Dooby Doo" — revealing how the dog got his iconic name.
Further, the clip reveals how the entire gang met together for the first time — Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne — as children on Halloween.
As the trailer continues, we see Shaggy and Scooby running away from robotic insects before a beam of light whisks them away. Towards the end, it falls upon the rest of the gang to find their friends, and save them from evil robots.
