After the hugely successful, straight-to-video release Scooby Doo Wrestlemania Mystery, which charted everyone’s favourite crime solving dog, Scooby Doo’s, invasion of the biggest show in the world, alongside the WWE Superstars, WWE are at it again, this time with the Flintstones. A release is scheduled in early 2015, but you can check out the trailer on IGN now.
The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown trailer sees sees Fred Flintstone as a wrestling booker, scheming to make some hard-earned cash with the WWE Superstars, in a brawl for all the (prehistoric) ages.
The animation and story stay within the boundaries of the classic Flintstone series, with the Superstars themselves fitting in nicely into this world, albeit with a prehistoric twinge – The Bella Twins are aptly renamed the Boulder twins, in homage to Nikki’s boobies perhaps? – and CM Punk is included in the feature, presumably due to the time-scale of the animation process.
The movie will be broadcast on VOD, DVD and, hopefully, Cartoon Network or the WWE Network. It represents a major coup for WWE, and it will be interesting to see if there’s any more Hanna Barbera crossovers in the near future.
