The beloved 1998 film Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island gets a brand spankin’ new sequel this year with the original movie Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island, which is set to be released on Digital September 3 and DVD October 1. But if you want to get the physical copy even sooner, we’ve just learned that Walmart will be selling it on September 3!
The DVD release won’t be available from other retailers until October 1.
In the new movie, Scooby and friends win an all-expense paid vacation and embark on a trip of a lifetime to a tropical paradise. Their destination however, turns out to be Zombie Island.
As soon as they arrive, they realize the place looks strangely familiar and is reminiscent of a trip they took years ago, in which they became wrapped up in a mystery involving zombies. The gang soon learns that their trip to paradise comes with a price when the zombies re-emerge and attack their hotel. Will the gang finally solve the mystery behind Zombie Island?
“Zombies are a very popular theme in entertainment now and we wanted to create a fun, family-friendly version of this genre for Scooby-Doo! fans. So we brought back a Scooby-Doo! classic and continued the original story but created a captivating new plotline,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. “Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is an entertaining, original film that will appeal to a wide audience. It’s classic Scooby-Doo! with a contemporary look and feel, a fun storyline and engaging characters.”
Return to Zombie Island features Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley.
