Originally going to be released in theaters in Japan in early June, Studio Colorido’s A Whisker Away had its theatrical release pulled due to COVID-19. Netflix instead acquired the film, releasing it on their streaming platform a couple of weeks after its previously-scheduled theatrical date. While English subtitles were available at the time for interested audiences such as myself, an English dub of the film was also added a little over a week later.
I have no shame in admitting it: I’m a fan of Scooby-Doo. While I don’t watch everything Scooby, the cartoon-character is something I’ll check in from time to see what new movies or TV series the beloved mystery-solving dog is involved in. I have fond memories of watching some of the series such as the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, not to mention some of the direct to home video movies such as Alien Invaders, Zombie Island, or Witch’s Ghost. Sure, some of that may be nostalgia, but I’ve also seen a good chunk of Mystery Incorporated as well as Be Cool, Scooby-Doo.
