(CBS NEWS) – There’s no mystery here: “Veronica Mars” is really coming to the big screen.

Creator Rob Thomas, star Kristen Bell and the rest of the cast previewed footage Friday from the upcoming fan-funded film at Comic-Con.

The cult teenage gumshoe series was canceled after three seasons in 2007. Thomas used crowd-funding site Kickstarter to pull in $2 million in less than a day to make the movie, eventually gathering more than $5.7 million in 30 days.

“I can tell you that it sort of has a ‘Godfather III’ theme to it,” Thomas said of the footage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Which is odd, because why not pick ‘Godfather II’? It was better…. I can tell you [Veronica] has not worked as a private detective since the last time you saw her. Part of this movie is her getting back into this life she thought she left behind.”

“Veronica Mars” stars like Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino and Chris Lowell joined Bell on at the San Diego Convention Center panel.
