Lego Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood is a 2016 animated direct-to-video horror-comedy film and the twenty-fifth film in the direct-to-video series of Scooby-Doo films and the first movie based on the Scooby-Doo brand of Lego. It was released on DVD, Blu-ray and digitally on May 10, 2016. The plot revolves around the gang trying to rescue an old movie studio, which is not only threatened by developers, but a series of movie monsters, too. The first trailer was released on February 23, 2016.
While trying to solve the mystery of a sea creature who is haunting a lighthouse, Shaggy complains to Scooby about how Fred, Daphne and Velma are always bribing them to be monster bait with Scooby Snacks. Because of this, Shaggy and Scooby decide not to eat Scooby Snacks again. After they have solved the mystery, the gang goes to the malt shop where Shaggy and Scooby eat tons of hamburgers that were supposed to be for a hamburger eating contest and win the whole gang a trip to Hollywood.
Once they arrive there, Fred decides they should visit Brickton Studios, an old monster movie making studio that is about to be closed down. One of the studio's employees Junior welcomes them and offers to give them a tour. Joining them on the tour is Atticus Fink, a developer who wants to buy the studio and bulldoze it down. During the tour, they drive their truck through a dark room, causing Mr. Fink to leave. After Fink leaves, the Headless Horseman appears and chases the gang.
After they escape, they go to see Chet Brickton, the manager, about their encounter. Mr. Brickton tells them that all the monsters used to be played by an actor named Boris Karnak, who died years ago and that his ghost may have come back to haunt the studios through various costumes of the monsters he played. In addition to the Headless Horseman, there have also been sightings of a mummy and a zombie, which is why he must sell the studio to Mr. Fink. The gang offers to help Mr. Brickton solve the mystery.
First, the gang goes to the set of the movie the studio is currently working on, which is a romantic comedy, not a horror film, which Junior is not happy with. Suddenly the Headless Horseman attacks the set and ruins it, making Mr. Brickton forlorn. The gang offers to help him finish the movie. Mr. Brickton makes Fred the director and makes Shaggy the star. However, Mr. Brickton lets TV show talk host Drella Diabolique have the lead, to Daphne's dismay. Daphne is sad that she doesn't have a leading role, but Fred promises to give her some screen time. After a long film making process, a mummy attacks the movie set and chases the gang off.
Afterwards, Fred and Velma go to look for some clues, which Daphne and Drella talk about movie star life, and Shaggy and Scooby play with some costumes. When the team goes back to film the movie, and Fred has added a plane to one of the scenes. Suddenly the Headless Horseman appears with a zombie. After Scooby has a wild ride on the plane and the monsters disappear, Mr. Brickton reluctantly signs the studio over to Mr. Fink, much to Junior's sadness. Velma mentions that the Headless Horseman and the zombie appeared at the same time, meaning the ghost of Boris Karnak cannot be in two places at once. The gang goes to capture the monsters and solve the mystery.
The gang heads back to the studio and with Drella's help, they are able to catch the zombie and the Headless Horseman, with Shaggy and Scooby being bait without Scooby Snacks. After catching the monsters, the gang takes them to Mr. Brickton and the police. The Headless Horseman is revealed to be Mr. Fink, who used the costume to get the studio in his possession. However, Daphne tells Mr. Fink that he violated a specific clause on the studio contract, making it null and void. The zombie is revealed to be Junior, who was also the mummy. Junior tells them he is actually Boris Karnak Jr., and he wanted to carry on his father's legacy. Mr. Brickton orders the police to take Mr. Fink away and allows Junior to go free, but they still don't know how to save Brickton Studios. Then, they realize that the studio security cameras got the gang being chased by the monsters and decide to make that into a movie, saving the studio. The movie ends with the gang taking a selfie with Mr. Brickton, Junior and Drella.
