Yesterday the Veronica Mars team (show creator/movie director Rob Thomas, stars Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Chris Lowell, Francis Capra, Tina Majorino, Percy Daggs III and Jason Dohring) descended on Comic-Con (right in the midst of their shoot, which is currently filming in Pasadena) to bring footage from the new movie to the crowd.
I love it. It feels right, it feels authentic. It feels like they captured the spirit of the show so utterly. The actors feel like their characters again, instead of predictable imitations of their characters. There are backflips. There's a great cameo by an incredible actress whom I had no idea would be included. There's some dramatic sprinkler action. I'm into it.
You can read a great live-blog of the panel conversation by Alan Sepinwall over at HitFix. And stay tuned for more Veronica Mars coverage, because...I'm visiting the set tomorrow!
