Velma Has A Crush On A Woman In Latest ‘Scooby-Doo’ Movie, Confirming Her LGBTQ Identity For Fans

The speculation can be put to rest: Velma is attracted to women. “Scooby-Doo” fans have wondered about the animated character’s sexuality for years.

Clips of the animated special “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” have been posted all over social media. They show Velma crushing on a new character, Coco Diablo.

The movie’s director said he was surprised about all the attention Velma has been getting.

“It honestly did not occur to [me] that we were doing something so groundbreaking until right now,” Audie Harrison, the film’s director, told NPR. “While writing and directing this, I just set out to have fun with the comedy of an awkward teenage crush.”

Coco Diablo is a villain in the animated movie. Harrison said he thought that was a bigger deal than Velma being attracted to a female.

“That being said, it does feel great to be a part of normalizing representation,” he told. “Especially with such a well-known franchise like Scooby-Doo!”

“Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” is available for purchase on digital platforms and will be available to stream on HBO Max later this month.
