All but the simplest children glossed over the live-action Scooby-Doo film(s) (there may have been more than one, there's really no way of knowing what happened that far back in history) starring Freddie Prinze Jr., Linda Cardellini Jr., and Sarah Michelle Gellar IV.

Following that effort's indifferent reaction, the folks at Warner Bros. have decided that animated is the way to go, so they'll be putting out a new film that's presumably in the vein of the animated series of yore, possibly containing esoteric drug references and lots of old men wearing latex masks.

While this seems to be an answer to a question no one asked, if they can steer the family-friendly ship away from recent painful CGI/live-action outings like Marmaduke, The Smurfs, and those godforesaken singing squirrels that kept harassing David Cross, then fine. Whatever.
