In this wild and wacky world of queer pop culture ups and downs, one thing has been consistent these last two year: Carmilla. It started out as an unknown web series, blossomed into the most popular digital content queer women have ever consumed, and now it’s going to be a full-length movie. KindaTV dropped the news and the trailer today at New York Comic Con. The two-minute video is full of thrills, chills, and a fully flirtatious wink at the fans who made the series so popular.
According to Variety, the film, which debuts next fall and will take place after the third season (still in progress), has already signed on “many of the original cast from the digital series, including Elise Bauman (who plays Laura) and Natasha Negovanlis (as Carmilla).”
According to our new TV writer Valerie Anne, who was in the room where it happened, the news made everyone at NYCC scream. In a good way! What a change of pace, 2016! Fans were afraid Carmilla wouldn’t even be renewed after season two, and now a feature film is in the works before the third season has even finished airing? That’s the stuff fandom dreams are made of! (Also according to Valerie Anne, Natasha and Elise teared up; it was their first time watching the trailer.)
Stay alive, you two love birds. Or, like, stay living-dead or whatever the lesbian vampire equivalent is of staying alive.
This is legitimately the best news i have heard in SUCH a crappy year. Just take my money, take my pride, take everything i have i don’t need it any more.
Right, since im almost surrounded by Carmilla references everywhere i decided to watch it. currently blazing through first season.
Between this and the Batwoman news, today has been amazing for queer women news!
Which Batwoman news? :)
Super good news!!!
And also, I am very happy Valerie is joining the AS team!
Well, 3 comments for now.
Happy to see that not all the people dropped dead after such a good news…
Hey undead people can post comments too!
I’d like to nominate this post for a comment award!
SO HAPPY! Plus it means both Laura and Carmilla will survive the season :)
I’ll just be over here, jumping up and down and flailing with excitement.
P.S. My heart ached a little bit during the motorcycle sequence.
Is this real life?
I’m not used to get what I want, what do i do now
Along with the Batwoman news this has made this one of the best days I’ve had in forever!
What Batwoman news?
I’m so happy to hear this.
I AM SO HERE FOR THIS!
full disclosure, I actually had to stop watching the Carmilla webseries because it was too scary for me (I am a Very Nervous Nelly) BUT I am happy this is happening!! dreams do come tru
I am so excited for this!!
Throwing my money at this because – YAY!!!!!!!! Cannot Wait!
Except for Wayhaught and Carmilla let’s put 2016 in a trash fire and come on 2017!!!!
I was in the public library when I got the YouTube notification that KindaTV had uploaded a video titled “Carmilla: The Movie”. At first glance I thought it was perhaps a spoof, but oh dear lord it was not. Ever wondered how hard it is to contain your gay self when you’re in a public library? VERY DAMN HARD! But I managed, and then had a full-on freakout later.
Super excited to get a movie, and I’ve already signed on for the biggest “package” possible to support the film. More Carmilla, please!!
I only just discovered Carmilla a few days ago and it’s amazing yay! So happy to know there will be a movie after I make my way through season three.
