Titled Scoob, the new movie will reportedly arrive in cinemas in May 2020, and also stars Will Forte as Shaggy, Gina Rodriguez as Velma, and Tracy Morgan as Captain Caveman.

In the new images the pesky teens can be seen deep in mystery-solving mode as Fred, Velma and Daphne appear to be on the hunt for clues.

What appears to be a flashback scene, a young Shaggy is seen meeting Scooby for the first time as they embrace and he receives a wet lick from the dog.

It's not only the gang that get an animated update 50 years after the first ever episode aired, the Mystery Machine also receives a makeover.

Fans are loving the new look, however some have voiced their concerns about Fred's new modern outfit.

"Where's his ascot," asked one, as another joked, "Maybe the whole plot of the movie will be to find it."

"Me: (This looks interesting). Also Me: (Fred has no Ascot and it's ok, Fred has no Ascot and it's ok, Fred has no Ascot and it's ok, Fred has no Ascot and it's ok, Fred has no Ascot and it's ok)," added another.

"I wish fred still had his ascot but OOOH I ACTUALLY LIKE THE SCOOB RENDERS A LOT," one fan commented.

According to Fandango, who released the stills, the plot of the movie focuses on how the gang first met and teamed up.

They then "must foil a diabolical plot revolving around a ghost dog known as Cerberus, discovering Scooby's secret legacy and their own epic destiny along the way".

The Scooby Doo franchise has already been turned into several movies, including Scooby Doo in 2002 and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed back in 2004, starring the likes of Linda Cardellini and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Although we don't get the delight of seeing The Greatest Showman star onscreen we can catch him in his latest movie The Beach Bum which he appears in alongside Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey.
