Zombie Island is Getting a Sequel!
I can't even describe how much my heart is geeking out right now!!!
After some rumors last week from a LinkedIn page, it's been confirmed that we will at last be getting a sequel to 1998's Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. Zombie Island is considered the darkest and most mature movie of the entire Scooby franchise, and has gained a large cult following among the fandom due to this. The film will come out some time during 2019 during the franchise's 50th anniversary.
This news was first "released" on a LinkedIn page last week, though it was uncertain if this was a hoax or not. Two days after this LinkedIn page was found, which listed a follow-up movie to 13 Ghosts, Curse of the 13th Ghost was announced which confirmed the reliability of this page. As of today, two more LinkedIn pages of people who work at WB have been updated to reflect the new film, tentatively titled Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island.
Here are the links to Joonki Park and David Karoll's LinkedIn pages. However, you must have a LinkedIn account to view these pages. For any of you who might not have an account, I've taken screenshots logged in from my LinkedIn.
I should additionally note that the LinkedIn page that confirmed this also lists an upcoming Scooby film about King Arthur (link to this is pending, still in the process asking the original poster on ScoobyAddicts about this).
I am so incredibly excited for this, and I think I can now die a happy Scooby fan! :) I hope the movie will stay true to the original darker, mature tone and will pave the way for some future Scooby films in the vein of the 1998-2001 films!
What do you guys think? What would you like to see in the film? And most importantly, are you fanboying/fangirling about this as hard as I am?

So it is official. I am so happy now. 2019 would be one of the greatest years in scooby history. We will have a great 50th aniversary. Props on WB for turning back at the gold scooby era.

I'm super happy about this as well. I admittedly was starting to get a bit cynical about WB and how poorly they were treating Scooby.
11/12/2018 06:02:57 pm
Me too. I said to myself it is the 50th aniversary so WB needed to do something special. They treated scooby badly but hear it is. The conclution of the 13 ghosts 33 years after and a sequel to the best scooby movie. As for your conclusion of course i am fanboying. My childhood comes back. I would like to see a dark move like the first one. That is the reason i am a bit afraid. This could be great or just ruin the first film and i don't wanna see that. As for the 13 ghosts i mentioned above i hope we will see a proper explanation from scoob and the rest for this paranormal adventur. I also want scrappy. But the thing that i want the most is the movie to be a good finale so we can feel the 13 ghost story is finally done

This is my biggest worry for the film(s) as well. I really hope they stay true to the original and they don't just throw some crap together in order to "please" the fans. I want something magical, dammit! xD

You are right. I mean i am super happy for theese sequels but sequels sometimes ruin and the original. My biggest fears are

I hope they don't completely leave Scrappy out. I'd be happy if they even gave a non-mocking explanation for why he wasn't there!

The first part of that message was pretty much my geek-out when I saw that this was confirmed lol.

What I’m most interested in, is if the gang will wear the same clothing as in the original Zombie Island, and if they would bring back that era’s animation style and mood.
11/13/2018 05:08:51 pm
I really hope so, I love that more mature look and mood! :)

there's some news on the sequel to scooby doo and kiss ?
11/13/2018 05:09:46 pm
I haven't heard anything either, which is a bit odd considering the flurry of news we've suddenly gotten on other movies now. I wonder if the KISS post meant they would be in an episode of Guess Who?

I'm a bit worried they'll ditch the darker tone. The DTVs tend to play it safe these days.

I'm worried about that as well. I hope they realize how much fans love the dark tone of Zombie Island!
11/14/2018 11:09:08 pm
It's just speculation my part based on the release schedule for the last few movies(and assuming Zombie Island gets released around September).

Ah gotcha. Sorry for misunderstanding :)
11/16/2018 09:51:18 am
You know......the original Zombie Island was a great masterpiece....
11/16/2018 01:12:53 pm
I sure hope so!

OMG I can't breath.

I have a feeling that this sequel might of will be even more better and scarier than the first film....

I really hope so! It would be awesome if the sequel is as good as, or even better than the original.
