Popular Scooby Doo characters Daphne and Velma are getting their own spin off.
Fans were delighted when it was announced.
The synopsis reads: ‘Daphne and Velma tells the story of Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley before they team up with Scooby and the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang.
‘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.’
Sisters Ashley and Jennifer Tisdale are the minds behind the spin off. Their production company Blondie Girl will be making the movie.
The Tisdale’s explained they are ‘committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphen and Velma their own story.’
They are excited to ‘introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.’
There is no word yet however if Daphne’s typical love interest of Fred will be in the movie.
So fans have pitched another option.
This Scooby Doo spin off will see Sarah Jeffery star as Daphne Blake. Sarah Gilman takes on the role of Velma Dinkley.
They want to see a romance between the leading ladies themselves.
Twitter users are rallying on Twitter for Daphne and Velma to be the queer love story we’ve always dreamed of.
