WWE Studios and Warner Bros teaming up to make new WrestleMania themed Scooby-Doo movie

Intrigue at WrestleMania!

WWE Studios is teaming up with Warner Bros to co-produce a new animated Scooby-Doo movie that will center around a mystery at WrestleMania. The list of wrestlers set to appear in the film are Triple H, John Cena, Kane, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, and AJ Lee.

WWE Chairman of the Board Vince McMahon will also appear. All of the above will lend their voices to the effort.

From the press release:

"We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. on this wonderful animated film," said WWE Studios President Michael Luisi. "Kids and adults are going to enjoy seeing their favorite WWE Superstars in animated form join forces with an icon like Scooby-Doo to solve a mystery at the biggest pop-culture event of the year - WrestleMania."

"Warner Bros. is thrilled to get into the ring with WWE Studios to bring fans an unprecedented animated adventure," said Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President and General Manager, TV, Warner Home Video. "We're excited to leverage the WWE's family-friendly brand and passionate fan base and integrate some of the most popular WWE Superstars and Divas within the Scooby-Doo gang."

When Shaggy and Scooby win tickets to WrestleMania, the entire gang travels in the Mystery Machine to WWE City to attend the epic event. However, when a mysterious ghostly bear appears and threatens to ruin the show, Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred work with WWE Superstars to solve the case.
Sounds like a winner.

The movie will be distributed through Blu-Ray, DVD, VOD, and digital download. I know how excited all you Cagesiders are for this one but you'll have to wait until 2014 for the official release.
This has the potential to be a massive creative embarrassment. I'm talking a No Holds Barred-level creative embarrassment.

They are probably just supplying the talent. Would this be any better if they used real voice actors?

Kids will want this because it's Scooby Doo, and it will be dirt cheap to make. As awful as it might be, they'll make money on this.

I won't be watching that (unless I happen to become a father between now and then), but it will make them money. Kids love Scooby-Doo and some of those kids will discover wrestling because of it and wind up asking their parents for the action figures, t-shirts, etc. As long as there isn't an episode of Raw hosted by Scooby and Shaggy, it should be pretty harmless to wrestling fans.

edit to add: If Scooby-Doo was good enough for Batman & Robin and the Globetrotters, then it's good enough for wrestlers.

It really is good marketing. And it'll be better than the Hulk Hogan cartoon.

Don't forget the Three Stooges.

When will the long-awaited WWE-Star Wars-Indiana Jones crossover will get greenlit? A partnership with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg can be nothing but beneficial for the WWE. I can't wait for the special edition re-release of WrestleMania XX where Chris Benoit gets digitally replaced with a walkie-talkie.

There are two Sin Caras, and the shitty one gets to keep the gimmick. The one that can actually work gets a generic Mexican thug character.
