Scooby-Doo has been entertaining audiences since his debut in 1969. For nearly five decades, Scooby and the gang have solved mystery after mystery and unmasked evil ghosts, ghouls, and monsters that have terrorized abandoned amusement parks, ski lodges, and beaches. Scooby is as recognizable as Mickey Mouse, the Golden Arches, and the Batman logo, and it doesn’t appear that he, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, or Fred are going away anytime soon.
Enter the latest incarnation of the mystery-solving meddlers: LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash. When the team decide to let their hair down and have some fun by going to the nearby Blowout Beach Bash, they find themselves in the middle of yet another mystery.
Evil Ghost Pirates have scared away all the teens at the beach and boardwalk and it’s up to Scooby and the gang to solve the mystery, save the Beach Bash, and make sure there’s enough time for food (well, for Scooby and Shaggy at least).
Will they solve the mystery and find out the identities of the Ghost Pirates before it’s too late?
Before LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash, there were three other Lego Scooby-Doo movies, and each one has been highly entertaining with a stellar voice cast. Frank Welker has been the voice of Fred since the very first episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? and continues the tradition to this day. He’s also stepped into the role Scooby-Doo. Matthew Lillard reprises his role as Shaggy whom he played in the two live-action films in 2002 and 2004. Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, The Big Bang Theory) voices Velma, and Grey Griffin (The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom) is the voice of Daphne. It’s a nice mix of old and new voices that really works.
The Blu-ray features something for everyone. A new Scooby adventure for the kids and two classic episodes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? and one ep of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo as Bonus Features (“Go Away Ghost Ship;” “A Clue for Scooby-Doo;” and “Party Like It’s 1899”).
So have some fun and get ready to party of Scooby and the gang in LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash! I highly recommend it!
LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash is available July 25, 2017 on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD!
