Jinkies! The female members of Mystery Incorporated are getting their own movie in this fresh new take of the beloved Scooby-Doo characters.
The trailer for Daphne & Velma was recently released and gives us a closer look at this reimagining of the two teenage sleuths. Sarah Jeffrey (Descendents) is the next actress to take on the role of danger-prone Daphne Blake, and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) is Mystery Inc‘s personal genius, Velma Dinkley. The official synopsis reads:
Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright & optimistic Daphne and whip-smart & analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online — until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, and while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.
Ashley Tisdale, co-founder of Blondie Girl Productions and producer of the film, is no stranger to popular kids entertainment, having starred in the High School Musical franchise. As the Tisdale sisters said in a press release about the movie:
“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,” said Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale, producers and founders of Blondie Girl Productions. “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…”
“Daphne and Velma are two iconic and strong female characters, and this latest adventure of theirs will be both inspiring and entertaining for the audience.”
Daphne & Velma will be released on digital, Blu-ray and DVD on May 22nd. In the meantime, if you want to see more from Scooby and the gang, Supernatural just aired a crossover episode in which the Winchester Brothers team up with Mystery Incorporated to solve a mystery.
