The 2018 live action film Daphne & Velma is going to become a young adult novel! On March 3, 2020, a short novel by Josephine Ruby entitled "Daphne & Velma: The Vanishing Girl" will be released in stores. The book will be published by Scholastic, and is 272 pages. Here's the sypnosis of the novel:
"Popular Daphne Blake and über-nerd Velma Dinkley are not friends. They aren't enemies either, but they don't have any reason to speak to each other, and that's how they prefer it. The two girls grew up together - they'd been best friends since pre-K - but when they hit middle school, Daphne dropped Velma and never looked back.
These days, Daphne's deep in the popular crowd, daughter of the richest family in town, while Velma's an outsider, hiding from the world behind her thick glasses. When they run into each other in the halls of Crystal Cove High, they look the other way.
But then Daphne's best friend, Marcy - who happens to be Velma's cousin - goes missing. A century ago, there was a wave of disappearances in Crystal Cove, and many local people believe that supernatural forces were behind it. Now the whole town believes those same forces are back . . . and up to no good.
Daphne and Velma may be the only ones who can solve the mystery and save Marcy-if they can trust each other enough to try. Especially since the truth might be stranger-and scarier-than either girl can imagine . . ."
I thought it was really interesting that they included Velma's cousin Marcy from A Scooby-Doo Halloween. She was such a minor character in that episode that I honestly didn't think she'd ever appear again in a piece of Scooby-Doo media.

Yeah I don’t think it’s based on the Daphne and Velma movie. And this is going to be a new YA series. Very exciting but so far away.

I don't think it's based on the plot of the film, no. The character designs are definitely based on Sarah Jeffery and Sarah Gilman's depiction of Daphne and Velma, respectively.
