“Twilight Saga” fans received an early morning surprise when cast members from the series treated them to breakfast at the break of dawn on the opening day of Comic-Con 2011.

Brunch maybe?!” credit=”Robert Pattinson”]Saying thank you to their most devoted fans, cast members including Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen), Elizabeth Reaser (Esme Cullen), Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale), Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater), and Boo Boo Stewart (Seth Clearwater), arrived early to give breakfast to the first 1000 people lined-up for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 official Hall H panel. The crowd was overwhelmed with excitement as the stars greeted them, signed autographs and posed with them for photos.
“Twilight” is the word on everybody’s lips and the reason that hardcore “Twi-Hards” have been lining-up for the cast and director’s Hall H panel session since Sunday. Even the press were teased with a staggered two-plus hour schedule of events; beginning with the introduction of cast members Greene, Reaser, Reed, Jones, and Boo Bo Stewart and proceeding to sandwich discussions with three authors of other Summit Entertainment projects, before the grand finale of a 25-minute talk with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Director Bill Condon.
The highly anticipated fourth installment of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, reveals the mysteries of this romantic epic that has entranced millions.
In the latest movie, Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage and honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child… which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).
With more of the romance, passion, intrigue and action that made Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse worldwide blockbusters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, based on Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling book series, begins the conclusion of the tale of vampire love, boundless friendship, acceptance, and finding your true self.
While Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner and Condon didn’t reveal anything that the books and forthcoming movie won’t, they seemed at ease talking about their work and the positive experience they’d gleaned from being part of this fledgling cast. Pattinson and Stewart talked of their time filming in Brazil, Lautner begrudged the fact that he hadn’t been able to attend that portion of filming and they all discussed their personal awkward moments on set: apparently Stewart had a hard time every time she had to handle the baby and Pattinson didn’t enjoy scenes where he had to remove his shirt. “I managed to go through the whole saga without removing (it) – I was foiled by the last movie!”
When asked if they thought this was it for the saga, or whether the series would continue, Pattinson continued and joked, “I’m not sure what they’d call a follow-up… Twilight: Breakfast? Brunch maybe?!”
The big take-away from this session was that the stars of Twilight are as natural in person as they are on screen. From the brooding of Kristen Stewart, to the understated charm of Robert Pattinson to the approachable and affable Taylor Lautner; they’re perfectly cast for the defining roles of their young careers.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens in theaters nationwide November 18, 2011.
