Scooby-Doo!: Mask of the Blue Falcon is a 2012 animated movie that features everyone's favorite mystery-solving gang. The movie centers around a popular comic book series, The Blue Falcon, which is being reimagined in the form of a blockbuster film. The movie opens with Shaggy (voiced by Matthew Lillard) and Scooby (voiced by Frank Welker) being ecstatic about attending a comic book convention where they will meet their favorite superhero, The Blue Falcon. Once at the convention, they meet the creator of The Blue Falcon comic book series, Hank Prince (voiced by John DiMaggio) and his assistant Owen Garrison (voiced by Eric Bauza).
Hank Prince has returned to supervise the production of the new Blue Falcon movie and is excited about the possibility of the superhero becoming a cultural phenomenon once again. However, the comic book fandom is not pleased with the new interpretation of the character, who is now being portrayed as a grim and violent anti-hero. During the convention's premiere screening of the new Blue Falcon movie, a group of villains led by Mr. Hyde (voiced by John DiMaggio) terrorize the event and steal the priceless Blue Falcon costume. The gang decides to investigate the crime and sets out to find the perpetrators who are hiding amongst the attendees, including the voice actress for the fictional character of Shreako-huntress, Jennifer Severin (voiced by Grey DeLisle).
As the mystery unfolds, the gang encounters various challenges while trying to solve the case. They enlist the help of the real Blue Falcon, who is revealed to be a retired superhero played by Brad Adams (voiced by Diedrich Bader). Brad trains the gang on how to become superheroes to solve the case, and they are given new superhero names and costumes. Their new identities are, of course, the Falcon Force, with Fred (voiced by Frank Welker) taking on the role of Leader Falcon, Daphne (voiced by Grey DeLisle) as Danger Falcon, Velma (voiced by Mindy Cohn) as Smart Falcon, Shaggy as Whip Falcon, and of course, Scooby as Chomp Falcon.
As Falcon Force, the gang embarks on their mission to stop the villains who have kidnapped Hank Prince and Jennifer Severin, who suspected Garrison to be involved in the theft of the Blue Falcon costume. During their investigations, they come across classic Hanna-Barbera characters such as Dynomutt the Dog Wonder, who is Blue Falcon's robotic companion, and even Baba Looey, who makes a brief appearance in a comical scene. Ultimately, the team learns about the true identities of the villains and the reason for their heinous crime. The mystery is resolved, and the villains are brought to justice by Falcon Force.
Scooby-Doo!: Mask of the Blue Falcon features everything that made the animated series iconic- from the catchy theme song to the way the gang solves the mystery by unraveling clues and piecing information together. The film also pays homage to classic comics and superhero lore, such as the nod to the Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent real identities, and the homage to Batman when Falcon is fighting off enemies with his martial arts skills.
The movie has an all-star voice cast, with Frank Welker, Mindy Cohn, and Grey DeLisle reprising their roles as Fred, Velma, and Daphne, respectively. Matthew Lillard returns as the iconic Shaggy, and one of the few voice actors to hold the title in both animated and live-action adaptations. The addition of Diedrich Bader as the voice of Brad Adams brings a new dynamic to the movie with his portrayal of a retired superhero.

The movie manages to bring elements from both the classic series and today's pop culture events, such as the comic book convention setting. The film has plenty of humor and suspense, making it an excellent choice for a family movie night.
