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.
