Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island – USA, 2019 – review

Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is a 2019 American animated feature film that serves as a follow-up to the 1988 classic Scooby-Doo! on Zombie Island.

Directed by Jeremy Adams (writer of the Lego Scooby-Doo series), the movie features the familiar voice talents of Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley. Elvira also makes a guest appearance.

Plot:

Scooby-Doo and his pals win an all-expense paid vacation and embark on a trip of a lifetime to a tropical paradise. Their destination, however, turns out to be Zombie Island. As soon as they arrive, they realise the place looks strangely familiar and is reminiscent of a trip they took years ago, in which they became wrapped up in a mystery involving zombies.

The gang soon learns that their trip to paradise comes with a price when the zombies re-emerge and attack their hotel. Will Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang finally solve the mystery behind Zombie Island?

Reviews:

“You would have thought that since there producing a sequel to what many consider the best Scooby-Doo movie that some more effort would have been put into the story and the animation. While there is some effort put into the animation since it does look like a movie there’s none put into the story and because of that I found my self several times asking what the story of the film is because there just isn’t one to speak of at all.” Amino

“As a direct sequel to Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, it doesn’t work. As a Scooby movie on its own, it’s amazing. There’s a lot of callbacks to various Scooby projects, and it’s just plain fun to watch. I would’ve made a different commemoration for Scooby Doo’s 50th anniversary, but I still think it does the job.” Blythe and Ferb

Release:

Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is released on digital from September 3rd, 2019 and on DVD from October from 1st, 2019.
