We had a feeling that Lions Gate (which owns Summit) was not going to let Twilight die off after how hugely successful it was. But we figured it would be closer to the 10th anniversary of the first book before we heard anything. Today we are excited to bring you news about a new effort to bring Twilight back. The project looks to be called “The Storytellers: New Creative Voices of the Twilight Saga.”
Lions Gate, Women in Film, and Facebook are partnering to present 5 new short Films based on characters in The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide. Aspiring female directors will be chosen, and the films will only be shown on Facebook.
From the New York Times: “We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of ‘Twilight’ to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” Michael Burns, Lions Gate’s vice chairman, said in an interview. “This is the just the beginning — a template, if you will,” Mr. Burns added. “You can probably guess what might be coming next.”
So what exactly IS coming next? Is he talking about what comes next for Twilight or what comes next for releasing movies on Social Media? It sounds like he is talking about movie making in general, but we hope that this signifies a whole new world for Twilight.
Clearly this particular effort has a lot to do with female empowerment. Also from the New York Times: “A group of female panelists, including the ‘Twilight’ actress Kristen Stewart and Ms. Meyer, will select the winning shorts and mentor participants, Lions Gate said. Other panelists include the actresses Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and Julie Bowen; Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first ‘Twilight’ movie; the film producer Cathy Schulman; and Jennifer Lee, who co-directed ‘Frozen.’”
You can sign up on the Tongal site to receive an announcement with the project launches.
Do you think that any of the original Twilight movie character will be brought back with different actors? Or do you think the films will focus on characters that did not get much attention in the movies and perhaps give them their own storylines?
Which characters would you like to see most in the films, knowing that the actors would likely be different?
It’s hard to believe that the first Twilight book was released almost 9 years ago. Since that time, 3 more novels plus a novella followed it as well as 5 movies, illustrated movie companions, soundtracks, thousands of fan fictions, and more.
We’re wondering when CURRENT Twilight fans first read the book. Did you first read it back in 2005 and have loved it and followed it ever since? Or are you a second generation Twilight fan who was too young to read it back then but has fallen in love with the series recently?
Let us know in the poll below. Better yet, take the poll and leave a comment telling us why you still love Twilight after all these years.
(If the poll below doesn’t work for you–try taking it over there in the left sidebar!)
I am surprised that they are even making them, but there are going to be 2014 Twilight calendars! Both are based on the entire cast. One is the Twilight Saga Calendar and the other is Twilight Forever.
Both are wall calendars that run from January through December, 2014. The feature full-color images from the movies. The Twilight Saga calendar has a different featured character each month (including Renesmee) along with some smaller pictures of the character from the movie. The Twilight Forever calendar has different scenes from the movie as the storyline progresses from Twilight through Breaking Dawn.
Contacts are always popular around Halloween, especially for those of us who really like to get our werewolf or vampire on.
AC Lens is running a special where you can save 10% on Halloween contacts with the coupon code HALLOWEEN10. They have more Halloween contact lenses than I have seen anywhere. In addition to Twilight-specific looking contacts (New Moon, Vampire Red, and Golden Twilight), they have everything from snowflakes to fire to zombies.
Check out their selection today but don’t wait to longer to order because you want to be sure they get shipped to you in plenty of time for Halloween!

Summit Entertainment announced yesterday that a new Blu-ray Disc of Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn will be released in March that will include 8 minutes of completely new footage. If you recall, there were a lot of parts of the book that were edited out of the movie for the sake of time. Some of those will be extended in the new version. Here are more details from the official press release:
Santa Monica, CA (January 7, 2013) – Here is the chance to discover even more of the blockbuster film when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition, featuring eight minutes of never-before-seen footage, debuts only on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy and UV) and Digital Download on Saturday March 2nd from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company. Now with eight minutes of new and extended scenes added back into the film by Director Bill Condon, along with his optional audio commentary, fans can delve deeper into the epic series they adore. Experience the timeless romance and drama in a whole new way when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition, featuring the original theatrical version and the all-new extended edition with optional audio commentary from the director, arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $22.98, respectively.
“As Twilight series devotees know, there was a lot of ground to cover in adapting Breaking Dawn to the screen,” said Condon. “Between the wedding, the honeymoon, the birth, and everything in between, naturally there were things that didn’t make it into our final cut. But I wanted to make sure that for all the Twihards out there, there was a chance to see some of these cut scenes – several of which are fan favorites from the book.”
Now is the perfect time to order 2013 Twilight Breaking Dawn calendars so that you will be able to get the maximum use out of them. Amazon has them for as little as $9.67, but they are selling out quickly. Most of them are actually 16 month calendars. Once they sell out, it will be nearly impossible to find them.
My favorite is the 12×12 16-month calendar. Each month features different characters including Bella, Edward, Jacob, Alice, Esme, Jasper, Emmett, Carlisle, and Rosalie. The Twilight Poster Calendar has the same images only they are bigger, which leaves very little room for the actual calendar part.
As the Twilight Saga is coming to an end, it might be the last chance to grab cool Twilight merchandise. What better to get for the Twilight fan that a list full of Twilight Christmas gifts? Here are some of our top picks from this year:
Renesme’s Bracelet. Hot Topic has already sold out of it, and Amazon is selling it out quickly. Get it for under $20 now before you have to start paying higher prices on eBay.
Limited Edition Twilight Breaking Dawn Gift Cards from Fandango. These are great because you can keep them as a Breaking Dawn memento plus use them to see other movies in the future. Choose from as low as $15 or as high as $100. Great stocking stuffers!
Breaking Dawn Calendar. There are quite a few to choose from depending on what size you want. All of them feature great pictures of the cast.
Lastly, you can’t go wrong with customized Twilight shirts. These are the gifts that tell your favorite fan you know exactly what they like. Find just about every shirt you could want in the CafePress Twilight collection.
