Twitter Loves Veronica Mars!
The other day on Twitter, I decided to click on my saved hashtag, #veronicamarsmovie, to see what was going on with it. The first tweet I saw was this:
The campaign for the Mars Movie was revived by the show’s star, Kristen Bell, via twitter. on September 2nd she tweeted,
She also christened the hashtag, #veronicamarsmovie. Searching that hashtag now will show that fans are still actively using it, and apparently, Warner Bros. was tired of the bombardment. On Nov. 9th, @wbpictures tweeted,
OMG BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Are they simply tired of having their mentions column filled with marshmallows? (Don’t tell them about TweetDeck’s filter option!) Are they buttering up our bread just to take it away? Even VM creator Rob Thomas doesn’t know. In an email to TV Squad, Thomas states:
“I was surprised as anyone that Warner Bros. set up a ‘Veronica Mars’ email address. No one has talked to me about it. I was happy to see it. It gives me a glimmer of hope, but I’m just like everyone else wondering, ‘What does this mean?’ I hope it means it’s under consideration, but I have no insider knowledge on that front.”
Hmm…interesting. When you email the address, you will get the auto-response as follows:
“Thank you for your interest in a VERONICA MARS movie. This is an automated response; due to the volume of mail we receive, we are unable to respond to individual messages, but rest assured, we are reading all of the messages we get. The fan support has been incredible, and we really appreciate your loyalty and enthusiasm towards the show.”
Kristen tweeted profusely on the subject saying that “[The WB] owns the rights, They gotta make it, or set it free!” and that “WB says thier research shows the movie wont have an audience. i disagree.” She also retweeted petitions, and Facebook Groups. Clearly, she loves this character, and is willing to beg for it. If you’ve seen Veronica Mars, you know why.
