“The new me? People say I’m a marshmallow.”
So ends the first two minutes of the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, which hits theaters in exactly two weeks. The line is the perfect shout-out to the 91,000-plus Marshmallows (translation: Veronica Mars fans) who shelled out their hard-earned money to get the film made through a record-setting Kickstarter campaign.
The opening sequence serves as a refresher for those die-hards and an introduction for anyone who didn’t watch the TV show’s three seasons. “A teenage private eye – I know how dumb that sounds,” Veronica (Kristen Bell) says in a voice-over at the start of the clip, poking fun at the TV show’s concept. She then leads us through her rocky (and epic) relationship with Logan Echolls, saying their shared “rage and distrust” following the season 1 murder of Lilly Kane drew them together and ultimately tore them apart (hopefully not for long).
Watch the video below at your own risk – I don’t know about you, but this just made it tougher to wait two weeks for the whole thing.
Veronica Mars hits theaters on March 14.
