As the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 hits this Friday, die-hard fans prepare to bid adieu to their favorite vampires. Banking in an estimate of 2.5 billion dollars on the movies alone, the Twilight series have broken many records. Kristen Stewart is the highest earning actress in Hollywood raking in more money in a year than icons Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston. We know the fans are sad for the series to end, but what about the cast? Sure, they have made millions, but has it been worth it for them? Heartthrobs Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen), and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black), may be ready to retire from the obsessed adolescent fans.
While visiting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Nov. 10 Pattinson was asked if it is bittersweet that the series is over, a question he answered with a devilish laugh accompanied by, “For them!” It is very interesting to see how much Pattinson is excited for this all to end. He talks about his character Edward in multiple articles in a sinister way. In one interview he says, “A lot of stuff in the Twilight world doesn’t make sense.” In another, commenting on his character, he proclaims, “And the more I read the script, the more I hate this guy, so that’s how I played him.” One thing is for sure though, Pattinson has become an icon off these movies, whether he liked the role or not. Not only has he established himself well off these movies, but Lautner has equally done so – unless you remember his premiere in Shark Boy and Lava Girl. Launter, commenting on the end of the series said, “I don’t know if I say ‘sad.’ I don’t know if I say ‘excited.’ There are so many things. It’s a weird feeling.”
Just as the actors have mixed feelings about the end, the fans equally do.
Christina Yoo (’16) says, “I’m kinda sad. I was so into it. So it’s kinda sad that it’s coming to an end. I was devastated when the Harry Potter series ended.”
“I’m glad it’s over because there’s a lot of conflict over it – between the fans and the non-fans. It’ll be nice not to hear anymore ‘team Jacob,’ ‘team Edward’ fights” says Mary Krantz (’16).
Sierra Smith (’16) comments on the non-fans more said, “Its sad for the non-fans too because it’s an end to all the parodies.”
So with all the media obsessing over the series, the question still is out there – how will people take to the final movie? Everyone is a little nervous for the end, seeing as the book Breaking Dawn is filled with action and a beautiful ending. However, according to an interview with Robert Pattinson, the end looks to deviate from the book – which is really nerve-racking.
Commenting on the premiere, Emily Pietro (’16) says, “I’m looking forward to a hilarious ending!”
It’s both sad and a relief that the series is coming to a close. As Harry Potter fans had to say goodbye last summer, Twilight fans have to say goodbye this fall.
