Synopsis:

The gang heads to the entertainment capital of the world, Hollywood, where they take a tour of the legendary Brickton Studios, a historic Hollywood movie studio. While visiting the lot, the gang is surprised to find the once powerful film studio has fallen onto hard times. Neglected and in disrepair, Brickton, which has lost its luster, now faces threats of closure and an impending sale to greedy developers who want to tear it down. 

To top it off, the Mystery Inc. gang discovers that the studio’s backlot is haunted by the ghost of Boris Karnak, a famous, oldtime movie actor who has been making ghostly appearances in the roles he once made famous – including the Headless Horseman, the Mummy and the Zombie. The ghostly sightings have frightened away the cast and crew of Brickton’s latest film production, which was the studio’s final effort in trying to save the company from going under. Now with production halted on the movie which was supposed to rescue Brickton from its demise, it looks as though the famous backlot is destined to fall into the hands of the developers after all. Will it be a wrap for Brickton or will Scooby and the gang find a way to help the studio achieve box-office success? It’s a “bricktacular” adventure no Scooby-Doo! fan will want to miss!

    This is another fun movie to watch as a family, and the timing is perfect, if you are looking at giving the kids something to reward them for the end of the school year, and for the first couple days of Summer vacation! I love that my child is watching characters from MY childhood, but updated for hers! Miss Grace loved the movie, and the bonus episodes- Knight Time Terror is one of her favs! Once again the gang foils schemes that baffle the adults, and with their unlimitless supply of Scooby Snacks, Scooby comes through yet again! I always loved that the gang used their wits, and what each of them did best, to solve crimes, and they till are. Making them Lego allows for more fun adventures! So check this one out with the family, and everyone will have a great time!
