We can thank the avid fans of Veronica Mars for the new Veronica Mars movie that will be hitting UK cinemas on 14th March this year. A record-breaking Kickstarter campaign ran from 2004-2007 and was driven by enthusiastic watchers of the renowned television show all over the world. Series creator Rob Thomas and star of the show Kristen Bell launched the campaign, and the project goal of $2 million was raised in just 10 hours. By the end of the original month long campaign, the running total was $5.7 million. It holds the record as the most widely supported Kickstarter campaign to date, with around 91,000 backers in total. Here Kristen Bell talks to Ellen Degeneres about the process of funding the film due for release this year.

The pressure of making this movie a success therefore must have been huge. The plot joins title heroine Veronica Mars when she is due to make her way as a lawyer after graduating law school. Her path to legal fame is interrupted when she receives a call from ex-boyfriend and series regular Logan, who has been accused of a murder in a high-profile case. Veronica returns to Neptune to Logan’s aid, but only initially to get him set up with a lawyer. Predictably she becomes far more involved and takes it upon herself to return to her detective ways and get to the bottom of a confusing web of corruption. ‘I knew the felonies before I knew the state capitals’ says Mars during the film. That’s our girl!
