Where did you watch this movie?

Inspired from a tremendously successful television sitcom, this crime-mystery thriller follows the present-day adventures of a young woman who used to moonlight as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father, even while she was a teenager in high school. Now, 'Veronica Mars' finds Kristen Bell’s titular character returning to her hometown of Neptune for her 10-year high school reunion, only to find a new mystery she has to solve.

Did you know? The movie was shot in a 23 day shooting schedule. Although the pressure on the cast was strong, it was much easier since the cast already knew their characters so well. Some of the cast though, such as Hansen, thought it was easier shooting the movie, since the turnaround time wasn’t as insane, and they were shooting in Los Angeles proper this time around. The Kickstarter backers on set definitely got the royal treatment, having their own tent for lunch, and getting to meet and greet with available cast members. Read More

Trivia:
The Neptune High 10 Year Reunion takes place at a swanky bar/club, and The Edison in downtown Los Angeles was used for filming.

Before coming back for the reunion, Veronica had just finished her time at Columbia Law and was out looking for a job at a law firm.

The idea and spirit of Pirate Pride is still in tact, and it seems it will never die. Yes, there is a group utterance of “Ahoy!”

The aesthetic look of the movie is almost identical to that of the show, from the cinematography, to the lighting, to even the composition of the shots.

The movie was shot in a 23 day shooting schedule. Although the pressure on the cast was strong, it was much easier since the cast already knew their characters so well. Some of the cast though, such as Hansen, thought it was easier shooting the movie, since the turnaround time wasn’t as insane, and they were shooting in Los Angeles proper this time around. The Kickstarter backers on set definitely got the royal treatment, having their own tent for lunch, and getting to meet and greet with available cast members.

Most of the core cast were in the loop about the Kickstarter, as evidenced by Bell, Dohring, and Hansen appearing in a video promoting the Kickstarter, but Majorino, Daggs, and Capra weren’t as involved right from the start. They checked in on updates throughout the Kickstarter launch, but had no solid ideas about the possibility of the movie until the Kickstarter happened. Capra was especially inspired by it, having taken the original cancellation after the third season rather hard. Many cast members felt reinvigorated him, giving them a new high in their careers.

Veronica Mars obviously has very dedicated fans, and Hansen and Dohring shared two of their more interesting fan encounters. Hansen was approached by a fan at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and Dohring once received a pirate’s chest full of items pertaining to the show.

Funded in large part by a campaign on Kickstarter.com, breaking all of the site's records up to April, 2013. Some of the accomplishments were: Fastest project to reach $1 million. Fastest project to reach $2 million. All-time highest-funded project in FILM category. Third highest-funded project in Kickstarter history. Most project backers of any project in Kickstarter history.

In one of the shots, a man dressed like a gorilla was needed to dance in the foreground while Kristen Bell and Ken Marino played a scene on a bench. Ryan Hansen had just wrapped his last scene in the film a few hours earlier and was hanging out on set and agreed to do the scene. Rob Thomas and Ryan then decided to prank Kristen and Vinnie, who didn't know it was Ryan in the gorilla suit. The stint will most likely make the DVD bloopers reel.

Was shot in 23 days. Filming began on June 17, 2013 and wrapped on July 23, 2013 at 4:34 AM.

Will begin filming in the summer of 2013, six years after the original TV series was canceled and almost ten years since the show first premiered.

Leighton Meester wasn't able to return as Carrie Bishop due to scheduling conflicts, so the character was recast and she was replaced by band Twin Sister's lead singer, Andrea Estella, who had never acted before.

Almost since Veronica Mars went off the air, there's been talk of making a movie. Rob Thomas even developed a pitch that revolved around graduation day at Hearst college: Wallace and Mac were graduating, Veronica had been sidetracked by freeing Keith from prison and there was a murder in Neptune that was affecting the beach city's spring break business. Warner Bros. wasn't convinced there was enough interest to warrant a major studio-sized movie about Veronica and the project never got off the ground.

When the idea of Kickstarter emerged, Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas met with the Warner Bros. brass, which gave their blessing to the project and agreed to help distribute the movie. Their reaction was "if you can show there's enough fan interest to warrant a movie, we're on board." And they did, with $5,702,153 pledged of the $2,000,000 goal and 91,585 backers.

As a result of backing the project on Kickstarter, many Marshmallows (nickname to the Veronica Mars fans) were featured as extras in the movie. Steven Dengler, the top donator, pledged $10000 and won a speaking role in the film.
