If you and your kids are fans of Scooby Doo and WWE this may be the movie for you! Warner Brothers has brought the two franchises together for a fun, family team up: Scooby Doo and WWE Curse of the Speed Demon.
As a long-time fan of both franchises I was very excited to hear about the release of this new film. This is not the first time that these two franchises have teamed up. Previously they starred in Scooby Doo Wrestlemania Mystery in 2014. Much like in that film Scooby Doo and WWE Curse of the Speed Demon is a lot of fun. If you and your children are not fans of the WWE universe you may be unfamiliar with many of the characters in the film but the filmmakers have done a great job in translating all of the huge personalities. Many of the actual wrestlers voice themselves for the film. The highlight of this being The Undertaker (Mark Calloway), a character who fits nicely into the spooky Scooby Universe. The Undertaker helps the team try to dive their way to victory but the evil Inferno throws some interference at them causing the Mystery Machine team to jump into action and foil his plot in classic Scooby style. I would absolutely recommend this for all fans of either franchise as a fun family night in front of the TV.
