BURBANK, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Spirits will rise and consumers will be spellbound this Halloween

spooky Scooby-Doo & The Goblin King, the all-new, Scooby-Doo original
movie coming to DVD September 23, 2008. Featuring a star-studded line

of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo as they embark on a magic quest to save the
Mystery Inc. gang from the spell of a wicked warlock. Scooby-Doo & The
Goblin King will retail for $19.98 SRP.

   Scooby-Doo & The Goblin King follows that lovable Great Dane
Scooby-Doo and his pal Shaggy as they try to stop a second-rate
carnival magician named the Amazing Krudsky (Wayne Knight) from
turning everyone into horrible Halloween monsters after he steals the
light magic from Princess Fairy Willow (Hayden Panettiere). Scooby-Doo
and Shaggy board the Grim Reaper Railroad, which is bound for the
fantastic world of Halloween land, to retrieve the powerful Goblin
scepter from the Goblin King (Tim Curry) before Krudsky can. Along the
way, the Mystery Inc. crew encounters several enchanting creatures
such as the infamous Headless Horseman, the helpful Jack O'Lantern and
a frisky broomstick that take them on the ride of their life. The film
also features the voice talents of Jay Leno, Lauren Bacall, Larry Joe
