Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is the thirtieth in a series of direct-to-video films based upon Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons. It had its world premiere on July 21 at the San Diego Comic Con International 2019,[1] followed by Digital HD on September 3, and DVD on October 1.

It is a quasi sequel to Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, the original direct-to-video film in the series.


The gang gets a tropical-themed vacation, which turns out to be on none other than Moonscar Island.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The ending of the last DTV strongly implied that they would go back and regain their reputation and prove the Sheriff wrong, all of which is ignored.
  • The gang are surprised by being brought back to Moonscar Mansion, as if they were given no previous insight to where they were heading. They just put their lives in the hands of some sketchy competition.
  • Flashbacks are shown back to the gang's previous time on the island, but Velma keeps ranting about not believing everything she saw and that it whole comes down to being an unsolved mystery. All of this makes her act somewhat unhinged from reality.
  • Because ten or so other direct-to-videos have come during Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island and this one, where they have been regressed from adults back to teenagers, the latter has to retcon the differences, no matter how unconvincing they are, so Daphne being the host of her her own show is changed to her being on a school project, which has apparently gained interest from the same talk show host, Chris.
  • There was a real cat person among the fake ones, which was left a mystery, as if to leave it open ended for the audience to make up their own idea if the cat people are real or not, but it was already clearly established that the cat people were real, leaving the addition of a mystery cat person pretty redundant.

    • Yeah and you think if they do a sequel to Witch's Ghost Velma will once again deny the supernatural?
    • Sh e sorta might, but can we talk about that in this:
