Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Long before Scooby Doo and Shaggy were in the picture there were mysteries to be solved. But who was solving them? Two resourceful teens at Ridge Valley High – Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley. And now the girls are getting the attention they deserve in their own movie from Warner Brothers.
The new live action Daphne & Velma is an update to the characters we grew up watching in the cartoons with Daphne and Velma both being not only intelligent young girls but also tech-savvy. Bringing modern technology and problems into the world of the crime fighting team and quite possibly leading us to a new launch of the series that kids could easily relate to. The movie brings them together for the first time and sparks the fire to fight crime and solve mysteries together. And with their combined skills – they’re unstoppable.
Daphne and Velma is a fun movie for younger kids, but one that fans of the original series may struggle to get behind. The update for the younger generation means major changes to the stories to make them relatable. But the update also breathes new life into a franchise that has gone quiet in the last few years.
The movie has special features including:
- Daphne & Velma: A New Ambition
- Iconic Styles of Daphne & Velma Reimagined
- An Updated Classic Mystery
- Gag Reel
