According to ScreenConnections.com, the recently-announced DTV The Sword and the Scoob will be released on February 23, 2021 in the US on DVD and digital. The press release also mentions that the gang travels to England in the film prior to traveling back in time to trace Shaggy's family ancestry. Jason Isaacs (who played Dick Dastardly in SCOOB!) will join the cast of this movie as King Arthur Pendragon, and Nick Frost will play Merlin.
Check out this trailer for the next DTV, Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob!, which includes clever references to A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated! Though there's no official release date yet, it's been confirmed by SyfyWire that the film will be released in early 2021. Since the film will be released in France on February 24, 2021, I imagine it will be around that time. The movie is also apparently a homage to the film A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
Here's the official description for the film from SyfyWire:
When Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma, and Fred travel to jolly ol' England, they come face-to-face with the evil sorceress known as Morgan le Fay (Griffin), who, using the magic of Stonehenge, transports them back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. There, they meet King Arthur Pendragon of Camelot, whose appetite is as legendary as his sword, Excalibur. When Shaggy is suddenly kidnapped by Morgan, Arthur inducts Scooby, Fred, Daphne, and Velma into the Knights of the Round Table, relying on them to stop the witch and save his throne.
On February 1, 2021, a brand new Scooby-Doo book series will be released. The series will feature four books, all of which are reimaginings of classic Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? episodes. Each book is written by John Sazalkis and illustrated by Dario Brizuela, the latter of which also works on the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? comics. The books will come in both paperback ($5.95) and hardcover ($25.32). The series will include the following titles: Big Top Bandit, Funland Frights, Spooky Space Ghost and Ski Trip Terror. All of the books are available for pre-order. Here are the covers for the books:
The Scooby-Doo Project won a prestigious Annie Award in 2000 for Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Special Project. Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost was also nominated that year, but lost to An Extremely Goofy Movie.

Some very difficult choices this week, as they're all the winners from the previous movie polls! I wouldn't expect people to remember this since it was all the way back in January, but Boo Brothers and Ghoul School actually tied, so both winners of that poll are included as options here.
Here is the final vote count from last week's poll:
