So Veronica Mars has finally been resurrected thanks to the kind contributors at Kickstarter, and it’s gotten good reviews and should open to good business this weekend. What’s next for Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas? Zombies of course.
If you’ve ever contributed to a Kickstarter campaign, you usually get something in return for your help, whether it’s a t-shirt, or some other goodies. Now that the Veronica Mars movie is about to premiere, the fans who helped bring it to life are going to see some reward out of it besides the satisfaction of helping resurrect the show.
The resurrection of Veronica Mars was quite a story. The beloved show had been off the air forever, and Rob Thomas got things going with a Kickstarter campaign, which broke the record for most money raised for a project.
We know that the Veronica Mars movie raised a hell of a lot of money through the crowd-funding site Kickstarter in record time, over a million in five hours, and it poured in fast enough to get the movie greenlit by Warner Brothers.
It was a story that inspired many hopeful filmmakers and genre fans alike. The beloved show Veronica Mars launched a Kickstarter campaign that made $2 million in under twelve hours, and it resurrected the much beloved program from the dead.
It’s one thing when young filmmakers are going to Kickstarter to try and get their movies funded, but many found it amazing that Veronica Mars was brought back to life with the help of the site as well.
