On March 13, 2013 Kristen Bell, with the help of producer Rob Thomas and thousands of fans, brought “Veronica Mars”, the movie, into the world. It was a labor of love that many did not dream could happen.
Wednesday morning Warner Brothers, the studio that produced “Veronica Mars”, gave Rob their nod to fund-raise for a possible movie project. An announcment was made by Rob that they had 30 days to raise the $2 million bucks needed for the movie.
So where do a group of creative types go these days to raise money for artistic endeavors? That’s right, “Veronica Mars Movie Project” ended up on Kickstarter. In six hours the campaign met it’s goal setting a Kickstarter record.
The video short on the Kickstarter page is a must see (CAST REUNION!) that brings the LOLs for fans.
“Veronica Mars” aired on the CW for just three seasons between 2004 and 2007 and the final episode left many fans feeling unresolved.
Upon hearing news that the funds had been raised Kristen tells EW, “I knew Veronica Mars fans were cool, but I had no idea they could rally with such power. They are unstoppable — just like Veronica. I will have a permanent blush on my face, feeling so lucky to be associated with this entire thing”.
Let’s check in on the original cast of season one and find out what they have been up to:
