"Veronica Mars'" die hard fans, affectionately called "Marshmallows," finally got a sneak peak of the film at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.
"Fans are cool, but 'Veronica Mars' fans are awesome," Kristen Bell explains in the introductory lead up to the teaser trailer, which also features behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from Thomas and the rest of the cast.
Thomas, Bell, and other original cast members -- including Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Francis Capra, and Tina Marjorino -- unveiled the film in a panel at the annual festival. Thomas told passionate audience members that the film was thematically inspired by "Godfather III."
Which is odd, because why not pick ‘Godfather II’ ? It was better. … I can tell you [Veronica] has not worked as a private detective since the last time you saw her. Part of this movie is her getting back into this life she thought she left behind.
"Veronica Mars" hits theaters in 2014.
