  • Filming was announced to having taken place in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2017.[2]
  • The film had its world premiere at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo 2018 (C2E2) on April 7, preceded by a cast and crew panel.
  • The film actually gives itself a date at the beginning of the film: January 8, 2018. The film is set at least a few weeks to a month long.
  • Old Man Wetherby is a reference to Stuart Wetherby from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode What the Hex Going On?
  • This is the first time Daphne's been depicted as being mixed-race. She has a black mother and a white father.
  • Daphne mentions the curse of Crystal Cove, which appeared in the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated TV series.
  • This is the second live-action incarnation to set the main characters living in California, with the first time being in the theatrical films. The consecutive second live-action incarnation was set in Ohio.
  • Daphne's iconic headband and scarf come as a result of having to dress herself, after her dad secretly arranged everything with some faux prearranged closet.
  • Nedley & Elizabeth's names come from their original animated counterparts.
  • There are no references to Shaggy and Fred, while there are subtle references to Scooby, as Velma wears top with a dog's face and Daphne says dogs like her.
  • This is the only live-action Scooby-Doo film to be designated a G rating by the MPAA.
    • It is also the only live-action Scooby-Doo film to not feature truly supernatural creatures.
  • This is the first live-action Scooby-Doo film not to have its music score composed by David Newman.


Cultural references

  • Some of the background students are named after the crew, such as director, Suzi Yoonessi.
  • Even though RoboThespian is supposed to be invented by Bloom Innovative, it is actually a real robot made by English company Engineered Arts.
  • Facebook is mentioned, which seems a tad out of place, considering all the made up social sites covered by Bloom Innovative, which includes their version of Instagram.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or oddities

  • Velma loses her glasses for the sake of seemingly referencing the long running gag.
  • It isn't mentioned how long Carol had been pretending to be a teenager at Ridge Valley High or how long Bloom Innovative had been sponsoring the school. She could've been doing it for one year since she was pretending to be a senior.
