There's no denying that we still love Scooby Doo, so this news has us so excited. That's right: Daphne and Velma, two of our fave teen sleuths, are getting their own origin story. What's even cooler? It'll be a live-action feature-length film, produced by none other than Jennifer and Ashley Tisdale.
As reported by Variety, Daphne And Velma is set to tell the story of Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley “before they team up with Scooby and the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang.” Read the synopsis below:
The mystery-solving teens are best friends but have only met online — until Daphne transfers to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, stocked with high-tech gadgetry by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. While their peers vie for a coveted internship at Bloom’s company, Daphne and Velma try to uncover the reason why the school’s brightest students are disappearing — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.
“Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story,” Ashley and Jennifer Tisdale told Variety. “It’s so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.”
Sarah Jeffery has been cast as Daphne, and Sarah Gilman has been cast as Velma, with the film set to make its debut in 2018.
We're stoked to see two of our fave sleuths come to life on-screen—and see just how their friendship came to be! To build on that excitement, watch some Daphne and Velma clips below.
