After years of speculation on forums and social media, the new animated “Scooby-Doo trick-or-treat!” Velma confirms that it is a lesbian. The scenes of the movie, which premiered Tuesday (4) in the United States on streaming services like Amazon Prime, show Velma inadvertently showing her love interest for Coco Diablo, the elegant and adorable character who first appeared in the franchise.

In the first sequence, we see Velma getting deep redness in the cheeks upon meeting Coco for the first time. In another clip, Velma shines on Coco and can’t hide her joy after the designer taps her shoulder. “I’m sure Coco made some great notes!” Velma says. Soon, Coco gently placed her hand on the young woman’s shoulder and said, “Cute is right. Stefan, show them my wonderful notes!”
Confirmation of Velma’s sexuality comes two years after James John, who wrote the live-action Scooby-Doo films, revealed that the character in his scripts was “obviously gay,” but that aspect was “watered down” by the studio until then. It was completely left out from the final version. “Back in 2001, it was a clearly gay movie in my first script,” John wrote in a social media post. “But the studio has been watering down and softening, making that aspect obscure (the comic version) until it’s nothing (the released version) and eventually has a boyfriend (the sequel).”
On Twitter, many users celebrated by confirming that Velma is a lesbian through posts that received thousands of likes. “My Lord. An official lesbian in movies. Let’s go!!!”, the user celebrated in a post with more than 130 thousand likes. While another commented: “Obviously the fact that a lesbian movie made my week much happier. This animation is amazing.”
In Brazil, “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” It’ll be called “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!”. Inspired by Halloween, the animation still has no scheduled premiere date on national broadcasting services.
