Movie Review: Scooby-Doo The Sword and the Scoob

Get ready for medieval mystery and adventure as Scooby and the gang are transported to Camelot in the all-new animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment: Scooby-Doo The Sword and the Scoob, available on digital and DVD 2/23/21.

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of this DVD to review on the blog. The opinions I share are my own.

The Sword and the Scoob

Mystery Inc. goes medieval in their latest full-length animated family film where the gang takes a trip to England to trace Shaggy’s family roots. Shaggy’s family medallion catches the eye of the locals who realize he may just be the rightful owner of their town. Suddenly they find themselves transported to the Middle Ages where they meet up with King Arthur and his noble knights. Unfortunately evil sorceress Morgan le Fay has plans to seize power of Camelot, unless Scooby and the gang can help help!

Scooby Doo The Sword and the Scoob hits on all the classic Scooby Doo requirements: a musical chase scene, a Shaggy and Scoob sandwich eat-a-thon, a spooky villain, and of course- those meddling kids! It also includes the personality twist of the newer Scooby movies where they make Fred look like a bit of a doofus while Daphne takes over girl-power style and saves the day. And as for how they were transported, there’s a quantum universe paradox theme that was completely lost on my five-year-old, but in the end they discover a more rational explanation.

Wizards and Fire-Breathing Dragons

With an evil sorceress, a magical wizard, fire-breathing dragons and valiant knights, The Sword and the Scoob delivers all the action and the comedy expected from a Scooby Doo feature film. My little super Scooby fan gave it a thumbs up, and was excited to see it came with three medieval-themed bonus episodes of classic Scooby Doo.
