In the Trailer for ‘Return to Zombie Island’, a Popular Scooby-Doo Mystery is Revisited

After solving mysteries everywhere imaginable, the time has come for Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby to revisit one of their most popular mysteries in Scooby-Doo!: Return to Zombie Island.

The original Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island was released in 1998 and was notable for being the first instance where the monsters (in this case zombies and cat people) were found to be real, instead of regular people wearing masks. Now, in this trailer for Return to Zombie Island, the gang find themselves unexpectedly going back to Zombie Island.

I find it curious that the trailer lays out the idea that there’s still a mystery to solve on Zombie Island. As far as I remember from the first Zombie Island film, the mystery was explained in that the Cat People and zombies were very much real; the Cat People were defeated when they failed to sacrifice new victims in time. However, the trailer implies there’s something more to the story, so I’ll be interested to see what that something is.

Given how popular Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island was and remains, it’s no surprise they finally decided to create a sequel. As a big fan of the original Zombie Island film, I’m excited to see what Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is all about.

On Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island, Scooby-Doo and his pals 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 Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang finally solve the mystery behind Zombie Island?

Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island will release on Digital on September 3, 2019, and will release on DVD on October 1, 2019.
