Watch: Veronica Mars’ Comic-Con footage

After being hailed as the most successful Kickstarter campaign to date, the first footage from the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie has made its debut at this year’s Comic-Con. A mish mash of interviews with cast and crew along with movie footage, the nearly 5 mins of film gives fans a glimpse at what their money is funding.

After raising more than $2million in just 10 hours, the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign raised nearly $6million to fund its cause, confirming what fans of the cancelled show have wanted for years: a movie.

Featuring the returning cast of Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino, Percy Dags III and Enrico Colantoni, the film is being directed by series creator Rob Thomas and is set for release sometime in 2014.

Check out the Comic-Con footage below.
