ToonBarn is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the world’s most lovable, mystery-solving Great Dane, Scooby-Doo, along with the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang, as the complete Hanna-Barbera classic series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! comes to Blu-ray as a collectible, numbered limited edition in Mystery Mansion packaging. We are also celebrating the digital release of a brand-new Warner Bros. animated film Scooby-Doo: Return to Zombie Island, the sequel to the 1998 direct-to-video film Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. This is coming to DigitalHD on the same date as the limited edition box set, September 3, 2019. To top it all off, we have exclusive interviews and panel footage from the 50th Anniversary Scooby-Doo Celebration at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC)!
This all ties back to Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! perfectly, bringing 50 years of Scooby Doo cartoons full circle. In Scooby-Doo: Return to Zombie Island, 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 realize 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?
Scooby-Doo Return to Zombie Island 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.
