Daphne & Velma Get Their Own Movie

Daphne & Velma

Daphne and Velma, the two women of the Scooby-Doo team, are getting their own movie! It’s a prequel, from before they met the talking dog, and it’s live action!

Sarah Jeffery (Descendants: Wicked World) plays Daphne and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) plays Velma. Here’s the trailer and description:

State of the art robots and high-tech gadgets are common sights at Ridge Valley High, an innovative center of learning for some of the brightest minds in the country, including new transfer student, the bright & optimistic Daphne Blake (Sarah Jeffery) who is excited to finally go to school with her online bestie, the whip-smart & analytical Velma Dinkley (Sarah Gilman). But not everything is as innocent as it seems as mysterious disappearances begin to plague the top-performing students on campus. Once cheery and full of life, kids now appear in a “zombiefied” state – lifeless and shells of themselves. Can Daphne and Velma learn to work together and save the students or will they become the next victims?

Daphne & Velma

Daphne & Velma will be available on disc or digital on May 22. The DVD edition is listed at $19.98 and the Blu-ray version is $24.98. There are a few bonus features:

  • Daphne & Velma: A New Ambition
  • An Updated Classic Mystery
  • Iconic Styles of Daphne & Velma Reimagined
  • Gag Reel

I like the way they kept their signature colors, but since this is a real-person movie, they had to wear different outfits along the way.

The movie is co-produced by Ashley and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company that develops and produces television and digital programming with a focus on telling stories for millennial women by millennial women. Although this one obviously skews a bit younger.

The movie is debuting at the upcoming C2E2 convention. On Saturday, April 7, from 4-6 pm in Room S404, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will show the movie, followed by a panel featuring actors and filmmakers and an autograph signing.
