Okay, so if you’re on Twitter or Facebook, then you might’ve seen people talking about Veronica Mars The Movie. THE MOVIE, Y’ALL! I, for one, am freaking thrilled. I LOVED Veronica Mars, and I didn’t even watch it until after it had already ended. But even as a late starter, I loveloveloved it. It’s funny, emotional, gritty, angsty. It’s, in short, freaking amazing. (Yes, I do occasionally have marathons of it, what of it?! *cough*)
The Movie thing is on KickStarter. (If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a way for people to help fund Awesome Projects.) The deal is this: if they raise $2,000,000 by April 12th, the movie is–most likely–a definite GO. The project has already broken records for hitting over $1,000,000 (yes, that’s one million!) pledged in JUST 4 HOURS. If it’s gotten this much in such a short time, then I’m hopeful they’ll hit their goal long before time runs out.
You should go visit the KickStarter page and read about it. Watch the video. It’s great. Do it. I’ll wait.
If you’re a long-time fan of the show, and can spare a few bucks, you can make a pledge and get cool stuff for doing it. Unfortunately, I don’t have the funds, but if I did, I’d totally pledge at least $75 (because they offer great stuff at that tier). But even if you don’t have the cash to spare, then help spread the word about it! Tweet it, Facebook it, sky-write it! Or, if you know someone who loved Veronica Mars, tell them about it and then they can be all SQUEE VERONICA MARS THE MOVIE!! Really. They’ll love you for it.
VERONICA MARS. THE FREAKING MOVIE! Did I mention that part?
**Warning: This post was written while I was, almost quite literally, bouncing in my chair and chanting “Veronica Mars THE MOVIE!”, so please excuse any typos, ramblings, and/or non-sense. I’m a little excited. Okay, a lot excited. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER! Well, maybe not ever, but it’s darn close. Okay, I’m shutting up now.**
