NEW YORK (AP) — The animated Scooby-Doo film "Scoob!" will bypass theaters and premiere directly on digital platforms, making it the latest studio to experiment with an on-demand release during the pandemic shutdown.

"Scoob!" had originally been set to open in theaters on May 15.

Instead, on the same date, Warner Bros says it will be available for a $20 digital rental or a $25 digital purchase.

Warner Bros. joins Universal Pictures and the Walt Disney Co. in testing the video on demand waters while theaters remain shuttered and moviegoers are locked down at home.
