Hello there, fellow Marshmallows. No, I’m not refering to the fact that you are all soft, squishy and tasty once roasted (I might have been watching too much Hannibal) – I am referring those of you who, like me, love Veronica Mars.
One of the greatest shows of the last decade, Veronica Mars, never received the recognition it deserved. It was a fan-favourite show and in a time where making that knows was considerably more difficult that it is now (ten years makes a big difference), it was unfortunately cancelled after the 3rd season, much to many people’s dismay.
Luckily, the story doesn’t end there! In 2013, something amazing happened. Show creator Rob Thomas and lead star Kristen Bell launched a kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie, which us fans have been fantasizing about for many years, and it was a remarkable success – raising its initial target in only 10 hours, becoming the most successful kickstarter campaign of all time.
Now, I know some of you might shockingly not be familiar with Veronica Mars. I suggest you all educate yourself post-haste, as it will definitely be time well spent. Set in the fictional town of Neptune, Veronica Mars starred Kristen Bell as a rebellious but highly intelligent high school girl that moonlights as a private investigator, often without her private eye father’s consent, to solve various cases around the town. Ranging from dog-napping to murder and even sexual assault, Veronica Mars was a fiercely clever show that never pulled any punches when dealing with its often very dark subject matter, and us fans loved it.
Well, I have some good news! While it might not be the biggest news to come out of Comic Con SD this weekend, for a few minutes Hall H was all about Veronica Mars and the footage I am about to show you was very well received. As per Bleedingcool, the video turns into a trailer at around the 3-minute mark. When the Veronica Mars theme song kicked off, I fully admit to getting goosebumps. My excitement levels for this is through the roof…and not just because they made a Buffy joke.
For all of you who contributed to make this film possible, I salute you. Now I can stop writing Veronica Mars fan fiction. I kid, I kid! I’m not stopping.
For some added nostalgia and those of you still unsure what Veronica Mars is all about, here is the trailer from the first season back in 2004.
