A few days ago we learned that Velma Dinkley , Scooby-Doo ‘s teammate , is now officially gay in the canon of the saga.
Just in time (and probably not by accident), HBO Max released the teaser trailer for Velma , a series that tells the origins of the character, in a version updated to the new millennium.
To dub it we find Mindy Kaling . Here is the teaser …
The teaser openly jokes about the character’s change of ethnicity – which, as always, will not fail to attract criticism – and not too covertly about recent developments regarding his sexual orientation.
For now, nothing else is known, apart from the fact that in the series we will also see the other members of the Scooby Gang, Shaggy ( Sam Richardson ), Daphne ( Constance Wu ) and Fred ( Glenn Howerton ), probably also in this case in versions. different from usual. The vocal cast also includes Ming-Na Wen, Melissa Fumero, Wanda Sykes, Stephen Root, Ken Leung, Jane Lynch, Frank Welker (who usually voices Scooby. Maybe he’ll be there too?) And even “Weird Al” Yankovic .
Velma will arrive on HBO Max in 2023.
