Veronica Mars, the movie

This has been all over my flist this morning, but I have to add to it, because I pledged money and OMG I am going to get a phone message recorded by Kristen Bell out of this, not to mention a backer t-shirt and other goodies. All that's beside the point -- there is gonna be a movie!!! In the time between when I first saw the mention and when I went to pledge, it had reach 1.03 million.

I wonder if, once and for all, this will shut the powers that be up who insist that fandoms do not translate to money.



I have a whole other post I've been meaning to get to, but that is seriously trumped by my glee at the idea of a Veronica Mars movie. I don't even care that I'm still sick.

That's a hell of a pledge. *g*

The power of fandom, indeed. No doubt we're going to see a slew of other proposals for beloved lost shows. (I bet Joss Whedon is being overwhelmed with email right about now.)

Hey, go big or go home, baby! To be honest, that took up a big chunk of money I might have donated to other artistic endeavors, but it's been a long time since I felt so strongly about something that I'm willing to give up some things in order to donate to it.

I saw this when I came home from work today - I'm glad that A)the pledges over $10 are only being avialable within the US and B) most of the higher end pledges are already sold out, that's gonna save me some serious money.

I know they're trying to work it out for the international audience, and I hope they do, but still, those $10 donations from enough people are making a huge difference!

I really hope so. Maybe we CAN have nice things!

God, wouldn't that be great? And I see all these people pissing and moaning about it, and I'm just like, wow, you know, the world is changing right now, and this is in the forefront of that change. Why not enjoy what it will give us?

This is the only little tidbit that has appeared so far. :)

"Life has taken Veronica away from Neptune. In the years since spoiling Keith's chances to be reelected sheriff, Veronica hasn't taken a case. But something big is about to bring her back home and back to her calling. My goal is to include as many of your favorite characters as possible. It is, after all, time for Veronica’s 10-year high school reunion."

Yeah, all he's said is what ozfroggirl mentioned, but that sounds pretty good to me. I actually enjoyed that FBI teaser thing, but since I don't know how much of an audience it had, maybe Thomas is treating it like a throwaway.
