Scoob! The movie may have been canceled, but it came out with a bang


While much of the recent focus is on big changes at Warner Bros. and HBO Max was focused on postponing the “Batgirl” movie, it wasn’t the only significant project to get the axe from HBO Max. The sequel to the 2020 Scooby-Doo reboot of Scoob!, titled Scoob!: Holiday Haunt, has also been canceled, despite reportedly being almost completed. In fact, it seems that the film was so close to completion that the filmmakers recently went ahead and recoded the music because they had already paid for it.

Tony Cervone, director of Scoob! And was the writer and producer of the already canceled sequel, who announced on Instagram over the weekend that despite the fact that Holiday Haunt had already been canceled, the film just went ahead and recorded the music for the film because the production had already paid the studio. Space and musicians.

This shows how unexpected the cancellation of Batgirl and Scoob was! in fact, it was that the production had already spent the millions needed to animate it, but also supposedly spent a significant amount of money on recording music before it became known that the project was being put on a dust collection shelf next to Batgirl. It can be assumed that there would have been no refund if the scoring session had not been moved forward.

It also shows how close Scoob!: Holiday Haunt was to completion when this decision was made. The recording of the music for the film, as a rule, takes place very late, usually after the final editing of the film is completed or is close to completion. The score is recorded during the playback of the movie, as seen in the image of the Chervone, so you need the final version to be sure that you will not have uncounted scenes or scenes will not be cut, which will cause the score to no longer sync with the movie.

Although, of course, a decision was made here with new powers at Warner Bros. Discovery that it’s better to just save money that wasn’t spent on both Scoob! and Batgirl, the big question is how much money the company really saves. While one might not expect that Scoob! continuing to sell a lot of HBO Max subscriptions, it seems like it would make more sense to just go ahead and finish it, even with the money that WBD will save on its taxes.

And who knows, now that the score is written down, maybe there’s hope that Scoob!: Holiday Haunt may still see the light of day eventually. Although it seems that due to the tax write-off, WB may never be able to release these films if there is any hope of seeing Scoob! 2, the fact that the bill will not need to be recorded later will only help. Batgirl, most likely, will still have to pay for voice acting, which will significantly complicate any possible release of a Leslie Grace superhero movie.
