Now that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has hit theaters and the release date for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has been set for November 18, 2011 (which seems like an eternity from now), the question is: what’s left for Twilight fans in 2010?
At the beginning of the year, thoughts about the top ten things 2010 would bring for Twilight fans were mostly Eclipse-centric, but there were a couple of things that have yet to pass. For instance, Breaking Dawn‘s new castmates have not yet been discovered and the film has obviously not begun production. Also, The Host production hasn’t begun, and a lot of Twilight fans are also very much fans of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host as well (so developments with that movie will also be very exciting).
Additionally, the turn-around rates for Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon from theater to DVD were about four months (November to March). If The Twilight Saga: Eclipse follows suit, it’ll probably receive a DVD release date somewhere around the end of October or early November. Twilight DVD releases are always an event in themselves (what with parties, TV spots, etc.), so that should re-invigorate things around that time period.
Hopefully, news on the second portion of Young Kim’s Twilight: The Graphic Novel will be coming along sometime this year. The first portion was released on March 16th of this year, and while there’s no indication the second portion will be released in 2010, we might at least learn a little more about when we can expect it to come out.
There’ll also be continued convention appearances by the cast throughout the year via the Official Twilight Convention group by Creation Entertainment, and several castmembers from the series are busy filming other movies – like Taylor Lautner with Abduction or Robert Pattinson with Water For Elephants.
Other than that, when asked what Twilight fans expect the rest of 2010 to hold for them, the near universal response was “re-read the series . . . slowly.”
