Oh snap! Summit Entertainment announced something big via Twilight‘s Facebook page yesterday, according to MTV News. It will be hosting one of the first panels at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. “Fans interested in the story’s final chapters will be shown exclusive footage from ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ and be treated to a filmmaker and cast Q&A session providing details on the first half of the epic two part finale, in theatres November 18, 2011,” the studio’s statement read.
Twilight star Ashley Greene is keeping in shape for the upcoming Breaking Dawn promotional stint. The actress was spotted yesterday (June 14) grocery shopping at Whole Foods after leaving a gym in Studio City, CA.
No word on which cast members will be in attendance, but we can only imagine how big this panel will be when the convention commences July 21st. The cast first made an appearance at Comic-Con back in 2008, and it was mayhem. This gave both the studio and the media a glimpse into the phenomenon that ensued, as fans went crazy for the whole “vampires vs. werewolves with a dash of love” story. The cast returned again in 2008, making Hall H (where they first appeared) THE hotspot for Twilight sightings. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner admitted to being very intimidated by Comic Con at that time.
Last year, Comic-Con was without a Twilight Saga panel, as Eclipse had already been released and production on Breaking Dawn hadn’t begun yet. If you’re heading to San Diego for the famed convention July 21st, let us know by tweeting us at @socialitelife or head on over to our Facebook page.
