Following the recent first look photo, the fan fueled film adaptation of the TV series Veronica Mars came to Comic-Con and showed off the first footage from the cult favorite project. The video shown in Hall H acts as a featurette, chronicling the surprising Kickstarter success of the film, even showing fans reacting to the good news, and then leads right into the first official footage from the film starring Kristen Bell, in a short teaser trailer of sorts. Those who aren't fans of the original series might be confused, and the footage feels like a TV movie, for better or worse, but maybe this'll bring a new audience to the property. Watch below!
Here's the Conic-Con panel footage from Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars from the film's YouTube channel:
Veronica Mars is written and directed by Rob Thomas, creator of the original TV series which lasted three seasons on The CW. Kristen Bell returns as the titular private investigator, but plot details on the feature film adaptation are under wraps. The film was given life after a successful Kickstarter campaign prompted support from Warner Bros. for distribution. Series cast members returning for the film include Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell, Tina Majorino and Ken Marino. The film doesn't yet have a release date, but Warner Bros. is expected to release it sometime in 2014. Anyone excited yet?
