BURBANK, CA (July 11, 2012) — Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, prepare to be dazzled by the amazing Scooby-Doo in Warner Home Video’s (WHV) all-new animated feature-length movie Big Top Scooby-Doo!, which makes its debut on Blu-rayâ„¢ and DVD October 9, 2012. It’s a spectacle consumers won’t want to miss as Scooby and his pals join a circus in an attempt to investigate a series of werewolf sightings. Big Top Scooby-Doo! will be sold in a Blu-rayâ„¢ combo pack (includes both the Blu-rayâ„¢ and standard DVD and ULTRAVIOLETâ„¢ editions of the film), which retails for $24.98 SRP and on standard DVD, which retails for $19.98 SRP (DVD).
When the Brancusi Circus comes to town, Fred – who has always had dreams about performing under the big top – jumps at the opportunity to visit the show. Upon their arrival, Scooby and the gang learn the circus performers have been terrorized by a werewolf who has not only frightened them but has also stolen jewelry from circus spectators. The circus is blamed for the attacks and faces a potential shutdown. Desperate for help, the circus ringleader turns to Scooby-Doo and his pals. To get close to the action, they all go undercover as circus performers: Fred becoming a trapeze artist, Daphne a daring motorcycle stunt driver and Velma a human cannonball. Will they be ready to face a frightening team of circus-themed werewolves?
