Scooby-Doo!: The Sword and the Scoob review by Bobby Blakey
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”
For years I was never a big fan of Scooby-Doo!, but after the more recent animated features and the big screen feature Scoob! I guess I am going to have to change my tone since I have been having fun with them. Now the gang is back once again with the new animated feature Scooby-Doo!: The Sword and the Scoob. Could this latest original animated film bring the usual mystery solving antics or will it be a case not worth solving?
Scooby-Doo!: The Sword and the Scoob follows a journey back in time to King Arthur’s court in this legendary saga of wizards, knights, dragons…and Scooby-Doo! An evil sorceress tries to seize power in Camelot, so King Arthur needs the help of our favorite super sleuths to save his throne. But will their valiant efforts only make things royally worse? This new movie serves up laughter on a platter, and Scooby and Shaggy are ready to dig in!
Before diving into this one I will have to say while I have enjoyed most of the Scooby-Doo stuff that’s been getting released more than I had expected this one was not quite as strong. That being said, it was still entertaining and I think one that fans will still have a blast with. Right out the gate it did suck me in thanks to a Thundarr the Barbarian reference, but then felt like it shifted back into the more generic Scooby-Doo tropes. I am sure that is what the fans want and I totally get it, but not being a big fan it just wears thin for me.
The voice work and animation is still great and there are some funny moments and all the fun twists and turns fans want. I give them props for the creative direction in this story and how they pulled it all together in the end. Most of the issues here are likely more about my own issues with the franchise itself.
Decide for yourself and join Mystery Inc. on an all-new case with Scobby-Doo!: The Sword and the Scoob available now on DVD from Warner Bros Home Entertainment.
