Kristen Bell Hearts Star Wars

Fans who attended Celebration IV in Los Angeles last week got an exclusive glimpse at the upcoming Weinstein production of Fanboys, but what seemed to steal the show wasn’t the reel of fantastic movie moments, but the panel of actors, producers, the director Kyle Newman, and most notably actress Kristen Bell wearing a shirt every fan can appreciate. In fact, for each Fanboys panel she attended, Bell wore a different Star Wars-themed shirt.

The “Veronica Mars” actress stars in Fanboys as Zoe — a Girl-Friday character with a lot of sass, humor and common sense, as well as a complete understanding of why her best guy pals are obsessed with Star Wars enough to trek across country for a covert Episode I operation. In a recent issue of Geek Monthly magazine, Bell, who poses in the article with a lightsaber as well as a retro Han Solo action figure, explains that her role as the comic book store employee and Force-sensitive fanboy friend was a no-brainer.

“My body doesn’t want to do Star Trek, my body wants to do Star Wars,” Bell says in the article. “I chose the role in Fanboys because I thought it was an amazing script, I thought it was a fun movie and I thought what’s better than a love letter to Star Wars fans.”

    I’ll miss Veronica Mars. Kristen Bell is fantastic. I’d see fanboys just for her if I weren’t a Star Wars fan.

  4. Victor3D says:

    “My body, my body”… Her mind wants to do something for Star Wars?

  5. Outbound Sith says:

    Her body wants to do Star Wars? That’s a coincedence, cause my body wants to do [CENSORED!]😉

    May the force be with you! Who knows there are millions of worlds like ours, we’re just inconsequential tidbits in a vast universe with absolutely puny understanding of anything beyond our own planet. Maybe there are intergalatic armies and fleets out there. Maybe Startrek isn’t so farfetched. We are scarcely embryonic in our exploration of space. Great movies! Caesar said if it is possible it has been done if it is impossible it will be done!
