I say this completely without irony: I am pumped for them to find this 13th ghost.

Sucks that it's DVD only and not BD. That makes no sense in the modern age when everything is animated in HD.

Still, I will check it out since it was my favorite Scooby Doo series growing up and it never made sense to me why they didn't bother having one final episode with the last ghost getting caught.

Yeah it doesn't make much sense to me either. They put so much effort into these (well some of them), only to have them as *impulse buys*. I guess they are hoping most hardcore fans will go digital. I still purchase the dvd's though, if I want them enough. The oddest one was the "batman Unlimited" series, a trilogy of more stylized films. The first 2 were released on BD, but the 3rd film was dvd only... And of course the Batman B&TB/Scooby Doo crossover was DVD only as well.

I'm just glad the two Adam West films got a BD release.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I think the last Scooby Doo movie to get a blu ray release was Scooby-Doo! Mask of the Blue Falcon, for some reason Warner Home Video has been releasing them on DVD only since then. It would have been nice to pick up Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold on blu-ray; I'd rather not just "buy" a digital copy even if it's in HD as those can (and have) "disappeared" on people.

THR MARCH 01, 2019:
Will Forte, Gina Rodriguez and Tracy Morgan to Star in Animated Scooby-Doo Movie (Exclusive)
Borys Kit wrote:Veteran voice actor Frank Welker will voice Scooby.

Last Man on Earth star Will Forte, Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez, Tracy Morgan and Frank Welker are going for a ride in the Mystery Machine.

The actors have closed deals to voice star in the untitled Scooby-Doo animated movie being made by Warner Bros. and its Warner Animation Group division.

Tony Cervone is directing the feature, which counts Chris Columbus, Charles Roven and Allison Abbate are producers.

The project brings to the big screen for the first time since 2004’s live-action Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed the mysterious and borderline supernatural hijinks of four teens and their (borderline) talking Great Dane, Scooby-Doo.

Rodriguez will voice Velma, known as the brains of the group. Forte will voice Shaggy, the scaredy-cat slacker who is best friends with Scooby. Morgan will voice a character not part of the Scooby universe, but rather part of the larger Hanna-Barbera cartoon universe, Captain Caveman.

The story sees the Mystery Inc. gang join forces with other heroes of the Hanna-Barbera universe to save the world from Dick Dastardly and his evil plans...and this time, we are told, the threat is real. The movie is slated for a May 2020 release.

Rodriguez, who in 2018 appeared with Natalie Portman in the sci-fi thriller Annihilation, voiced a character in Smallfoot, an animated offering from Warner’s animated arm, WAG. She is repped by CAA and Jackoway Tyerman.

Forte, who for a decade appeared on Saturday Night Live, recently voiced the part of Abraham Lincoln in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. He recently wrapped a dramatic role in Laundromat, directed by Steven Soderbergh and also starring Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman.

SNL and 30 Rock alum Morgan will voice Captain Caveman. He also has the Netflix animated series Green Eggs and Ham coming up.

Veteran voice actor Welker's relationship with Scooby-Doo dates to the 1972-73 series The New Scooby-Doo Movies.

Just watched a bunch of episodes of the new series, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? Like The New Scooby-Doo Movies show, each episode has a special celebrity guest star.

The most jarring guest star was Jaleel White reprising his role as Urkle. I mean, it's fun for me who knows who this character is, but I'm sure the kids are clueless.

I loved the episode with Jim Gaffigan, who is a competitor in the relay car race/eating contest. And I feel like the Rickey Gervais episode, they wrote a barebones script for the regular cast and let Ricky riff and it's glorious. Wonder Woman trains Velma and Daphne how to fight and the gang help find Alfred when he gets kidnapped (and he apparently worked a short stint for Daphne's family). And the show was hitting all of my right buttons with the episode where Weird Al's accordion camp gets attacked by a dinosaur.

Also Kate Micucci takes over the role of Velma and does great job.

Okay, the animation style and character designs are fine. As much of a shame it is that the usual voice cast has been replaced with celebrities, I have mostly made peace with that systemic issue. I will say that Will Forte did a better job than I was expecting, but it's only a few lines and I was on my phone, so I could be wrong.

On one hand, I like the idea that they seem to be creating a H-BCU by have Blue Falcon, Dynomutt, and other Hanna Barbera characters. On the other hand, with the various H-B characters (and the destiny angle of IMDB's plot synopsis) makes me wonder if this will still feel like Scooby-doo or it'll lose that in trying to be a part of something bigger.

But I'm always down for more Scooby-Doo.
