Must List

Six reasons why you should watch SCOOB!

We're all stuck at home right now, but some of the biggest movie studios in the world are doing their part to keep life feeling as normal as possible by bringing the movie theater experience right to our houses. Warner Bros.' SCOOB! just premiered on at-home platforms like Amazon Prime Video and we are beyond here for it. 

The latest adventure for Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang is their most challenging mystery ever. The movie centers on a plot to unleash the ghost dog, Cerberus, on the world and the Scooby-Doo crew's mission to stop the global dog-pocalypse. Along the way, they discover that their faithful companion, Scooby-Doo, has a secret destiny that's bigger than they could have ever imagined.

If you're looking for some fun new #content (complete with loads of action, adventure, and fun) to help pass the days in quarantine, SCOOB! is for you. If you're still on the fence, here are six reasons you should join the SCOOB-elution and watch the movie yourself. 

1. The movie has an amazing cast.

In addition to the usual, grown-up versions of the Mystery Inc. gang we're used to seeing, SCOOB! digs into the group's origins with flashbacks to their younger selves. And those younger selves are voiced by some of our absolute favorite young actors, including Mckenna Grace, Iain Armitage, and Ariana Greenblatt. 

2. The Halloween scene is epic.

Speaking of those younger versions of the Scooby crew, they steal the show with their epic Halloween costumes—especially Daphne as Wonder Woman and Velma as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. OBSESSED. 

3. The food love will make you feel truly seen.

Is there a person on the planet who doesn't love snacking? Probably not. But is there a person on the planet who loves snacking as much as Scooby-Doo and Shaggy? Also probably not. But, TBH, we'd love a chance to join in on the duo's epic nosh seshes. 

4. The viral #Scoobdance TikTok challenge is lit.

The #ScoobDance challenge was launched on May 3rd by 14-year-old TikTok celebrity dancer Jalaiah Harmon with original music from Movers+Shakers and has more than 3 billion views so far. And, warning, it's impossible to not want to get in on it when you see it. 

5. The girl power.

SCOOB! is an all-around update to the classic Scooby-Doo series, but the biggest winners in this version are definitely the ladies of the gang. Daphne and Velma never got the respect and development they deserved in the old school cartoon and SCOOB! changes that. 

6. The friendship vibes spark the good feelings we all need right now.

At its core, Scooby-Doo has always been a series about friendship and the love between a boy and his dog. And SCOOB!  keeps that tradition going strong. The movie will give you all the warm fuzzy feelings you need right now, when we're all missing getting to give our own best friends a big hug IRL. 

SCOOB! is available for both Premium Video on Demand and premium digital ownership now. Click here to find a place to buy or rent the movie yourself!
