Scooby-Doo and friends are back in the all new full feature length movie, The Sword and the Scoob — now available on DVD and digital. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Scooby-Doo and the gang are back in this all new film Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob. If you are looking for a family friendly movie that will have both the adults and the kids entertained, this is a great choice. Any fan of Scooby-Doo will be happy with this one as it does a great job of capturing the feel of the classic show.
Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob Review
The second this movie started I was transported back to when my daughters were very little. Scooby-Doo has always held a special place in all of our hearts, and when they were preschool age we would watch the show during snack time together. It has brought us many laughs over the years so we were excited to watch Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob together.
As a mom of girls one of my favorite things to see in this movie was the lesson that women can do anything they want to. Of course back in medieval times they would be surprised to see “non-men” like Daphne doing things that men do, but I was really happy with how they addressed this. I am glad that they snuck this lesson in there that was important for my daughters to see and hear.
This movie does a great job of channeling the original show with the look, the humor, and the story. I love having new Scooby-Doo content that feels like classic Scooby-Do content. This is one that we will watch as a family time and time again. Yes, it is clearly for a younger audience, but there is stuff for the adults too.
If you are wondering if your little ones will be scared, I will say it has the same level of scary as all Scooby-Doo episodes and movies. It is done well and it is not excessively scary in any way. I highly recommend this as a family movie night option, especially if you are already a fan of Scooby-Doo and the gang!
