Velma Is Officially A Lesbian In The New ‘Scooby-Do’ Movie

Scooby-Doo’s Velma has long been rumored to be a lesbian, but the animated character’s sexuality has never been confirmed… until now. Clips from the new movie “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” have confirmed fans’ long-held hopes: Velma likes the ladies.

There’s no question about where Velma stands. In clips from the movie that appeared online, Velma can be seen losing her mind with lust when meeting costume designer Coco Diablo. The clips sent fans into a frenzy, with one writing on Twitter, “OMG LESBIAN VELMA FINALLY.” That sentiment seems pretty widespread, given that the tweet has more than 100,000 likes.

It’s not just fans that have been waiting for this. James Gunn, who wrote all the early live-action Scooby-Doo movies, has always thought Velma was gay. The same goes for Tony Cervone, the supervising producer on the “Mystery Incorporated” series. However, it was never up to them to make that canon. Gunn even tweeted in 2020 that he “tried” to make Velma a lesbian in the live-action movies because she was in his 2001 script. However, “the studio just kept watering it down & watering it down, becoming ambiguous (the version shot), then nothing (the released version) & finally having a boyfriend (the sequel),” he wrote (via Variety).

It’s unclear who eventually gave the green light, but fans are glad they did. As we know, representation matters. Having a lesbian cartoon character may not seem like a big deal. However, given that Scooby-Doo is one of the most classic animated franchises in the world, a lot of people may watch and feel inspired or at least more seen. There’s no downside to this whatsoever.

You can see lesbian Velma in all her glory now. “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” is now available to buy for $14.99 or rent for $4.99 on Amazon Prime Video now. A DVD version of the movie will be available for $14.99 on October 17.
