Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed is a 2004 live-action/CGI supernatural comedy film. It was a follow-up to Scooby-Doo, which was released in 2002. Having found success in its cast and crew, Warner Bros. Pictures retained them all, with Raja Gosnell and James Gunn directing and writing, respectively. Mosaic Media Group also produced again. Unlike the previous film, Gunn receives sole writing duties and is also promoted to co-producer. It was released on March 26, 2004.
Due to the sequel not being reacted to well and most importantly underperforming at the box office, a third film was canceled and the series was put on hiatus for five years when Warner Premiere and Cartoon Network co-produced Scooby-Doo! Mystery Begins, which was marketed as a prequel, despite it being set in contemporary times.
In their hometown of Coolsville, Mystery Inc. are hailed as celebrity heroes, but a relentless TV reporter sets out to defame them, which isn't hard when they face their most dangerous villain yet, one who has brought all their past monsters, which were all costumes, to life--bigger and badder than before.
