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?
