If you haven't read my other article, If 'Scooby-Doo 3' Had Been Released..., then read no further! Please read that post first.
Ever heard of Scooby-Doo 4? Didn't think so. That is because Warner Bros. Studios never made one! After the live-action films Scooby-Doo, and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, the producers left the series to create two reboot television original movies, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.
But, what if after my theory of Scooby-Doo 3: Phantom Fright, Warner Bros. studios created another film to make a collection of beloved movies. The cast fit the characters so well that it could have worked out. This article is dedicated to see what would have happened if Scooby-Doo 4 would have been released. These are all of my hypothetical thoughts and opinions. Enjoy!
Title & Release Date
The title of the fourth installment would be Scooby-Doo 4: Twisted Time. Scooby-Doo was released on June 14 of 2002, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed was released two years later on March 26, 2004, and my adaptation Scooby-Doo 3: Phantom Fright would be in theaters on Friday, July 14, 2006. So, Scooby-Doo 4: Twisted Time would be released on April 25, 2008. The poster would look something like what you see below.
Casting Characters & Villains
The main characters would reprise their roles:
Fred -- Freddie Prinze Jr.
Daphne -- Sarah Michelle Gellar
Velma -- Linda Cardellini
Shaggy -- Matthew Lillard
Mary Jane -- Isla Fisher
Scooby-Doo -- Neil Fanning
Dynomutt -- Neil Fanning
The villains/monsters would be:
Spooky Space Kook -- Willem Dafoe
Future Monster -- Steve Buscemi
Charlie the Funland Robot -- No Voice
Brief Movie Plot
The film starts with a huge spaceship, as seen above, landing in an abandoned airfield. Then the title will appear on the screen: Scooby-Doo 4: Twisted Time.
The movie would then flash forward to the next morning. The gang was called in by the local residents near the airfield to investigate the mysterious spaceship. So they look around the ship. Fred suggests that Scooby and Shaggy stay outside while they go inside to look for clues. Velma uses her intelligent skills to get the ship running, and on one of the monitor screens a creepy skeleton figure appears and laughs in a high-pitch tone. The monitor goes black and the spaceship shuts off. Daphne finds a strange native keychain in the key ignition.
Meanwhile outside, four big trucks drive up and park by Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. There are men in black suits saying they work for the government. They order the gang off the ship and tell them to leave because this is "confidential". So, they leave and go back to the Mystery, Inc.
On the way back to the Mystery, Inc. Headquarters, the gang notices some peculiar aspects about the town of Coolsville. People are talking on headsets, riding on hoverboards, and the town looks remodeled. Fred slams on the breaks and pulls off to the side of the road. As they walk towards the town jailhouse, they see signs of a monster figure, and it happens to be the same spooky figure that they saw in the ship. When they walk in the building, they find themselves in futuristic clothes behind bars.
This leads into questioning, but to save time, they find out that the Spooky Space Kook is actually the mayor of Coolsville. Futuristic Fred and Daphne have a child together, futuristic Velma has won two Nobel prizes, and futuristic Shaggy tells Modern-day Shaggy that he got back together with Mary Jane and they are getting married, which makes Scooby-Doo very upset. Then, out of nowhere a powerful thrust comes through from outside into the jail cell. As the smoke clears in the hole in the wall, there before them stands a grey robotic dog named Dynomutt Dog Wonder, who says they need to take back the town.
After much adventures with the futuristic gang, Dynomutt, and the modern-day gang, they all find the Spooky Space Kook, with his two henchman Charlie the Robot and the Future Monster, in town hall. The Spooky Space Kook claims there is no way back into the present day, once they stepped on his spaceship they were transported into the future. Velma remembers the weirdly shaped button from the spaceship on the wall further away, and informs the gang that that could be their ticket back home.
The Gangs and Dynomutt battle the Villains. Fred, Daphne, and Velma accidently got trapped in their own trap, Shaggy has been caught by the dumb-witted Future Monster, and the Futuristic Gang is all caged by Charlie the Robot. It is time for the two Doo's to team up to push that button! They are successful, and when they push the button, they wake up to the modern day are on the ground inside the Spooky Spaceship.
The next day reporters and news crew all surround the spaceship asking tons of questions. How did they go to the future? How did they get back? Who is behind all of this? Daphne speaks up and tells everyone that they do not know, but they will get the bottom of this, using this: she holds up the native keychain that she found earlier that was in the ignition. Screen blacks out.
After the end of the movie, there is an end credits scene. Tiki music plays. In the same tropical, yet swampy and foggy place shown before in the third installments end credit scene, there is a tall dark figure covered in a shadow. The native figure says "The plan is going right as planned." There is a shrieking laugh and the Tiki music stops abruptly. The screen goes black.
Now, obviously, the plot wasn't the whole movie, there would be other funny , action, and tacky parts to the film too, as the previous films have proven. Well, that is my theory or thoughts on what would happen if they made a third Scooby-Doo movie. I hope you enjoyed it!
