Scooby-Doo is meeting paths with Courage the Cowardly Dog in a brand-new animated movie this September? This might be the biggest crossover after Avengers: End Game. The only difference is, it’s releasing on DVD.
Hitting Digital and DVD this September, Straight Outta Nowhere is a must-see for lifelong lovers of old school Cartoon Network content. Times Read has the exclusive first trailer! Stupid dog, you made us look awful!
“[The movie] is undoubtedly going to provoke intense nostalgia for those of us who grew up watching both Scooby-Doo and Courage programmes, and it will also present these beautiful characters to a new generation of viewers,” the project’s director/producer Cecilia Aranovich stated in a release.
In a 2019 interview marking the twentieth anniversary of the programme, courage creator John R. Dilworth stated, “Then nothing like it has been in the past. “You have Scooby-nearest Doo’s antecedent. But I do not believe that the intensity I have attained on Courage has ever been that shown.”
Mystery, Inc. is on the track of a mysterious thing in Nowhere, Kansas: a lonely village of Courage and its owners, Murie and Eustace Bagge, who are also linked by a weird, supernatural events, written by Mike Ryan, Straight Outta Nowhere. Scooby (Frank Welker) and the gang soon struggle with a gigantic Cikada monster and her crazy winged soldiers (especially 2021).
In order to overcome the insectid conspiracy that’s just too huge to fly a home, another shy murmur, courage is needed (Marty Grabstein). Can these two famous mongrels overcome their nerves, or are they going to bug out altogether? Like, zoinks, man — that’s the real mystery!
“The seamless fusion of the two universes was one of the most difficult elements of production,” added Aranovich. “But I think we have achieved the correct mix, bringing in the elements of design and colour palette from the courageous world and injecting Scooby and the gang with the most compelling and courageous emotions. The film is crammed with Easter eggs in the original Courage Series, with strange mood, unbeatable characters, strange action scenes and, of course, the mystery of every Scooby-Doo! narrative.”
The remaining casting voices will be complemented by Grey Grey (Daphne Blake), Mathew Lillard (Shaggy Rogers), Kate Micucci and Jeff Bergman (Eustice Bagge). As is common, both the Scooby and the Fred Jones are double duties from Welker. Executive-producer Sam Registry.
The home release includes three bonus episodes: “Decoy for a Dognapper” (Scooby Doo, Where Are You!), “The Gruesome Game of the Gator Ghoul” (The Scooby Doo/Dynomutt Hour), and “Chiller Diller Movie Thriller” (The Scooby Doo/Dynomutt Hour).
Dilworth also informed us the choice to give Courage pink fur was the consequence of a desire to mimic the way dogs were represented in the horror media. “Pay attention to Boys and dogs from Brazil. For example, Cujo. There are pretty vicious dogs in horror films—symbolic dogs, here I do the reverse. But the concept of the courageous and the faithful still plays. This is still there. That is still there.”
Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby Doo meets Courage The Cowardly Dog comes on Digital and DVD (TBD pricing is 14.99 dollars in the United States, 19.99 dollars in Canada) Clocking in in at 72 Minutes. 14 September, Tuesday.
