Yep, just as expected, the “Veronica Mars” Movie Kickstarter campaign broke a whole bunch of records. Now comes the fun part: making the movie.
Here’s the official update from Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell and the rest of the gang:
WE DID IT, MARSHMALLOWS!
With six hours to spare, we shattered the last record we were aiming for, passing 87,143 to become the Kickstarter with the all-time highest number of backers.
Let’s review our accomplishments for a moment, shall we?
- 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.
And we suspect there might be others. You’re simply amazing.
As a token of our appreciation to the 90,000+ backers who have helped us raise more than $5.6 million to support the film, we’re excited to announce that all backers pledging $10 or more will get an additional reward: a sheet of exclusive Veronica Mars stickers designed just for our backers. We’re finalizing the designs, but we expect them to look a lot like this:
Check back here every day for more announcements and new rewards, and help us make the Veronica Mars movie we (and you) have been waiting for. LoVe and Gratitude – Rob, Kristen & The Team

NEW!!! Official T-Shirt Designs!
Great news! We’ve got official t-shirt designs to share, and we couldn’t be more excited about them. Backers at $25 and above will get to choose from two options.
The first is California Noir, featuring the world’s sassiest detective back in action (and modeled by the dreamy Jason Dohring/Logan Echolls).
The second is called Mini-Blinds, and takes a more subtle approach.
Both t-shirt designs are black, and printed on unbelievably soft, beautiful materials. These are not never-to-be-worn t-shirts, we guarantee. These are the real deal. When the Kickstarter campaign ends, after we’ve had a little time to organize the results, we’ll get in touch backers so you can tell us your preferred design, size, etc.
And … here we go! Let’s make a movie! I can’t wait to be part of the action (yes, I donated just enough to score one of those t-shirts and be part of the process).
