I don’t think it’s much of a secret: I’m team Edward all the way. But the actor who plays Jacob Black, Taylor Lautner, is always so enthusiastic he gets me all Twilight excited.138 Comments »

Today Summit released an email stating that Catherine Hardwicke will NOT be directing New Moon. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is what they said:
Los Angeles, CA, December 7, 2008 – Summit Entertainment and director Catherine Hardwicke jointly announced today that the filmmaker will not be directing the next installment in the newly minted TWILIGHT film franchise. Summit’s targeted end of 2009 or early 2010 release of the film, NEW MOON, does not work with Ms. Hardwicke’s required prep time to bring her vision of the film to the big screen. Thus as has been done before with many successful film franchises, the studio will employ a new director for NEW MOON.
“I am sorry that due to timing I will not have the opportunity to direct NEW MOON,” said Hardwicke. “Directing TWILIGHT has been one of the great experiences of my life, and I am grateful to the fans for their passionate support of the film. I wish everyone at Summit the best with the sequel– it is a great story.”
“Catherine did an incredible job in helping us to launch the TWILIGHT franchise and we thank her for all of her efforts and we very much hope to work with her on future Summit projects,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production. “We as a studio have a mandate to bring the next installment in the franchise to the big screen in a timely fashion so that fans can get more of Edward, Bella and all of the characters that Stephenie Meyer has created. We are able to pursue an aggressive time frame as we have the luxury of only adapting the novels into screenplays as opposed to having to create a storyline from scratch.”
I’ve read people absolutely freaking out about this all over the Internet, but I really don’t think it’s such a bad thing! Lots of franchises switch directors-Harry Potter films switch directors and I love them, and definitely feel that they all have similarities. The Twilight series has different feels in each book, and I think it’s very possible that the movie for New Moon will be similar enough to Twilight that we’ll still like it, and will hopefully bring some new things-since the story for New Moon is so different from Twilight, anyhow.
I like what Catherine Hardwicke did, but I’m definitely not opposed to seeing what someone else would do with New Moon.
I’m waiting to see WHO they’ll get to direct New Moon before I get upset139 Comments »

Awesome. I wonder how many Stephenie Meyer books the average Twilighter has? I meet a lot of people with multiple copies, who have to have different editions, etc. Which reminds me-I’ve seen a lot of Twilight gear lately for the holiday shopping season and such. On cafepress, I’m in love with this Christmas card and this sweatshirt.
Is your wishlist full of Twilight gear this year?142 Comments »
Tonner Doll Company has been working on making Twilight dolls for Edward and Bella and has released prototypes. That of course means the finished product could be totally different, but they decided to let us take a peak at what they’re working on and…
Well, first, about Edward. His jacket is like the one he wears in the movie, so I’d assume we’re going for a Robert Pattinson look, and I don’t really see the actors in either-but I rarely do in dolls. The pants fit him weird and are driving me nuts. But! The hair is messy, and I LOVE that, haha. I love his funny hair, it gets me all giggly.
I don’t like Bella’s shirt, but ok.
