"A long time ago, we used to be friends." Almost 10 years after it first debuted on TV screens across America, beloved cult series Veronica Mars is back and on a bigger screen than ever. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in which it surpassed its $2 million goal in less than 12 hours, the movie starring Kristen Bell as the titular sharp-witted private eye is currently in-production, but already giving fans a first tantalizing glimpse behind-the-scenes.

A "sneak peak" reel for the Veronica Mars movie made its debut at the San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, and now the teaser is online for all to enjoy. It features interviews with the cast, most of whom are returning from the series, as well as series creator Rob Thomas, and top Kickstarter backers, who will make cameos in the film — plus a few glimpses of actual footage from the movie itself. Viewers are welcome to try and sleuth the finer plot details, but we're sure there will be plenty of twists left when the movie debuts sometime in 2014. That's just the Mars family way.
