It's here, Marshmallows; the official Veronica Mars movie trailer is finally here! Pat yourselves on the backs because you're the reason this movie is being made.

In the trailer, which debuted exclusively on Thursday's episode of E! News, Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) learns about her former beau's legal troubles—he's been accused of murdering his girlfriend. But let's be real, the only thing Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) could be guilty of murdering is our hearts. All this happens just as Veronica is close to landing a plum gig as a high-powered New York attorney and making a happy life with Piz (Chris Lowell) in the Big Apple. Will she throw it all away for LoVe?

Check out the trailer above for brand-new footage from the anticipated Veronica Mars movie.

"Nine years of radio silence and yet I still kind of knew I could count on you," Logan says to Veronica in the trailer above.

Veronica's return to Neptune also coincides with her 10-year high school reunion. The fan-funded flick hits theaters on Friday, March 14 in AMC Theaters in select markets across the U.S.

Series creator Rob Thomas wrote the movie with Diane Ruggiero and served as director. "This project has been a labor of love for everyone involved—me, the cast, my producing partners," Thomas said in a statement. "We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from the Kickstarter backers. This movie wouldn't have happened without them."

Veronica Mars aired for three seasons from 2004-2007 on UPN and The WB. The Kickstarter to fund the movie launched in February 2013 and reached its goal of $2 million in 10 hours. The Kickstarter campaign grossed more than $5.7 million.

In addition to Bell, Lowell and Dohring, most of the principal Veronica Mars series cast returned for the movie. Ryan Hansen, Krysten Ritter, Percy Daggs III, Tina Majorino, Francis Capra, Ken Marino and Enrico Colantoni all reprised their roles for the movie.
