Scoob, the new Warner Bros. animated film, will now premiere this May digitally. Starting on May 15, Scoob will be available to rent for $19.99 in the U.S. and Canada. It will also be available to buy for $24.99.
“While we’re all eager to be able to once again show our films in theaters, we’re navigating new, unprecedented times which call for creative thinking and adaptability in how we distribute our content,” Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff said in a statement. “We know fans are eager to see ‘Scoob,’ and we’re delighted we can deliver this feel-good movie for families to enjoy while they’re home together.”
The upcoming animated feature, based on Scooby-Doo characters, looks to follow in the footsteps of Trolls World Tour as the Universal family film saw massive success. That film skipped a theatrical release due to the ongoing global health crisis and saw the biggest ever debut for a digital rental.
