Warner Bros. sent the release of “Scoob!: Holiday Haunt” – sequel to Scooby-Doo! (Scoob!) 2020, following the premiere of “Batgirl”.
The decision is due to the company's intention to focus on theatrical releases instead of projects for the streaming service HBO Max.
According to Deadline, the Scooby-Doo! cost Warner Bros. $40 million and was to continue the origin story of Mystery, Inc. In the second film, the main characters went to a resort for Christmas, where they had to uncover a 40-year-old mystery and rethink the family holiday.
The first film was streamed by HBO Max in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The film critics rating on the website Rotten Tomatoes is only 48%, while the audience rating – 53%.
