Recently, an alleged rumor that a Scooby-Doo Live-Action Reboot is in development for HBO Max. Plus, they're giving this thing another chance and fans will have a chance to reconnect with not only Scooby-Doo, but the rest of their crew as well.

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We have some work to do now. Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We need some help from you now. The lines of the iconic theme song still resonate in all its silliness today and it seems like it won't be long before we hear them again. There are reports that a return to the Mystery Machine is in the works.

While no other official word is out about the Scooby-Doo Reboot on HBO Max, it stands to reason that we will see an entirely new cast for this production. So, the previous iterations of the franchise's live action forms. Where they had actors and actresses filling the main human roles with the Scooby-Doo character stepping in as an animated dog. We can probably take a similar path for this Scooby-Doo Reboot on the off chance that updates in technology make it even easier to bring Scooby “to life”. Think about what they've recently done to Clifford the Big Red Dog, except hopefully less scary looking.

Not Scooby-Doo's First Live-Action Reboot

The original Scoob-Doo animated series debuted in 1969 on CBS and appears to have been part of zeitgeist since then. The series follows the misadventures of the titular dog and his group of mystery-solving friends. There's his stoned friend Shaggy, blond preppy Fred Jones, rich redhead Daphne Blake and bookstore Velma Dinkley. Together they make a mashup eccentric of different personalities. It stands to reason that any Scooby-Doo reboot would include this group as its main cast.

But, this Scooby-Doo reboot wouldn't be the first time the group has received a live-action treatment. Also, having the most famous with the 2002 version that hit the screens with a cast (at the time) full of stars. Freddie Prinz Jr. (Fred), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Daphne), Matthew Lillard (Sausage), and Linda Cardellini (Velma) headlined a silly movie that was in line with the overall mood of the original cartoon. However, other big names like Rowan Atkinson and Isla Fisher were present with Neil Fanning in the voice of the animated Scooby. The film burst at the box office, earning $ $276 million on its $ 84 million budget. However, critics predictably criticized the avowedly absurd nature of the productions.

Sequel after the 2002 hit

A sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, came out a few years later, but was even worse off with critics (22% on Rotten Tomatoes). However, it once again made a box office profit ($ 181 million). Also, there's brand recognition here that could make a Scooby-Doo Reboot a hit for the streamer. There were also some attempts to target video about a decade ago with Scooby-Doo! The mystery begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.
