There are scares and frights enough in the present you might think but in the upcoming animated film Scooby-Doo: The Sword and the Scoob (a delightfully fun riff on a movie title with which most people will be familiar) Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Fred and Daphne find out there are lots in the past too.
All courtesy of Morgan le Fay, a powerful enchantress taken straight from Arthurian legend, who sends the supernaturally-aware gang back to Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table to solve a mystery of epically historical proportions.
It looks, as do pretty much all Scooby-Doo adventures like a lot of fun; well, for the audience at least, and Velma, Fred and Daphne, but for Scooby and Shaggy?
Not so much, which of course, makes it all the more fun for us.
Just how much fun is what we’ll find out when Scooby-Doo: The Sword and the Scoob releases 23 February 2021 via DVD and digital formats.
