In 1985, ABC premiered a new take on the classic animated series Scooby-Doo with a new adventure featuring the talking dog and his companions Shaggy and Daphne. The new series “The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo” had the trio team up with a con artist named Flim-Flam and a wizard named Vincent Van Ghoul (voiced by Vincent Price) as they traveled the world trying to capture and contain the 13 ghosts released from the Chest of Demons.
Warner Brothers is bringing those characters back for a new animated feature that will have the Scooby gang team up with those characters again after 33 years to finally find and capture the elusive 13th ghost. According to the official synopsis:
After the Mystery Inc. gang goofed up a case and nabbed an innocent man, they’re forced into early retirement from crime solving. It’s not long however, before their old friend Vincent Van Ghoul needs help and pulls the team right back into action. The gang has unfinished business they must tend to, which involves catching a ghost that previously got away. It all happened one summer while Velma and Freddy where away at camp. Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and Daphne secretly hunted down 12 of the world’s spookiest ghosts but failed to catch the most evil one of them all…the 13th ghost.
Now the elusive spook is wreaking havoc. Vincent needs help having him captured and confined to the chest of demons, a box that contains the other 12 captured ghosts. With the 13th ghost still on the loose, the gang will have to come out of retirement and finish the job once and for all. The chest however, is now located somewhere in a remote village in the Himalayas. Determined to help Vincent, the gang sets out on one of their most thrilling adventures yet! Bundle up and get ready for the icy slopes of the Himalayan mountains, chilling car chases, crystal balls and spine-tingling spells in this terrifyingly fun original movie!
Early next year, viewers everywhere will get to follow the Mystery Inc. gang as they travel to the snowy peaks of the Himalayan mountains in the all-new, feature-length animated film, Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost! The Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release will be available on Digital and DVD February 5, 2019.
