In a recent update for Kickstarter backers, “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas outlined the team’s plans for July’s San Diego Comic-Con. Details are still being hashed out for the official panel, but fans will be able to meet Thomas and members of the cast at the WB Booth for autographs and photos.
For marshmallows who can’t get tickets for Comic-Con, Thomas and company are holding a special event just for “Mars” fans. He says:
The Veronica Mars Fan Event (don’t worry, we’ll come up with a better name for it) will happen on July 19, 2013 at 7:30 PM, in what I understand to be an intimate theatrical venue in the Gaslamp District, near the Convention Center.
I’ll be there, along with as many of our cast members as I can bring along, and we’ll be doing an exclusive Q & A session. And yes, since you’re wondering: we will be debuting some exclusive footage from the movie, and you will be the first to see it. (Except for me and our editors, obviously.) Doors will open at 7, and admission will be first-come, first-served… unless you want to reserve a spot now.
Starting today, at 1pm EST, Thomas is adding an SDCC-specific reward tier to the Kickstarter. He says:
The SDCC Fan Package guarantees you a single reserved seat for the Fan Event, in case you want to roll up fashionab ly late without waiting in line, and the SDCC VIP Package guarantees you a reserved seat up front at the Fan Event and some face time with me and the cast during a brief invite-only Meet & Greet event the same day.
