"The Twilight Saga" has been such a consistently major part of pop culture over the past four years, it's hard to remember a time before "Twilight," let alone imagine what a "Twilight"-less future looks like.

And for the trio of actors at the heart of the adaptation, which has spun Stephenie Meyer's four novels into a five-film epic, the best way to sum up the end of their "Twilight" era is "surreal."
“It’s been absolutely unreal. It’s a surreal feeling, because I can’t believe it’s over," Taylor Lautner, who went from 15 to 20 during the making of the series, told CNN at the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" premiere Monday. "But it’s been an honor to be a part of this, and it’s definitely tough to say good-bye to.”
Robert Pattinson, 26, agreed with Lautner, telling CNN at the Los Angeles premiere that not having another "Twilight" movie to shoot is "very, very surreal."
"[With] every other premiere, I feel like I've gone to do another 'Twilight' movie three months later, or [was] already in the middle of shooting one," he said. "I haven't really experienced life in about five years without 'Twilight'-related stuff."
Pattinson came of age while starring in the franchise alongside his reported girlfriend Kristen Stewart, who told CNN that the premieres may be over, but "Twilight" is forever.
"We do share it with millions of people - if that can leave you so quickly, then you’re a nutcase," Stewart, 22, said. "I think it's not going anywhere. The fact that the movies will exist forever, and we'll be proud of them until the day we die. We feel pretty good walking away. I'm really glad this story is finally told."

Is it really? Because I can remember and imagine it quite well. I yearn for that future, in fact.
Interview with a Vampire was a million times better, that is a movie that should have done a saga.
I always thought The Vampire Chronicles would have made a great movie franchise too but maybe they were a little before their time? Of course they could pick up and finish where they left off... like the Silence of The Lambs. But, unfortunately, the momentum is probably gone.
The Twilight Saga began as a series of novels and became a world wide phenomenon when it hit the movie theatres. It appeals to all ages and is timeless – due to the fact that it is a love story – a coming of age story – and most importantly – a story where good overcomes evil.
I know some will think that Vampires are evil....but think back. Did we not side with the Corleone Family in the Godfather movies? We they not the protagonists? Did we not root for Michael to win the mobster wars?
No one wants to die. We would all like to live forever. Twilight gives us hope that there are Bella's and Edwards out there that can give us everlasting life. We know it will never happen......but it is sure a fun ride.
Just saying, Bella and Edward's relationship meets the criteria for an abusive relationship. Also, Bella was utterly useless as a female protagonist and the books had no plot.

Well, nothing lasts forever on earth. There'll always be another vampire franchise, Hollywood can't ever get tired of it. I saw Kristen in Snow White and I wasn't impressed to say the least. She could make a fantastic actress someday but there's alot of work to be done. Concerning her personal life, purely her business.
Ridiculous and idiotic series using vampires to push a Mormon agenda of young girls with old men and choosing the baby's life over the mother's. Unfortunately the movies may exist forever but hopefully you three will not be so proud of it forever
Isnt that more of a catholic agenda?
She is completely gorgeous and I think she is a great role model for woman. I like how she cleans up well but if she feels like dressing down she does. Her and Robert seem like great people and don't get caught up in the hollyweird scene.
She is not a role model...she is an actress. She always seems to be depressed/awkward and is a cheater. Sure, she's beautiful but that does not make her a role model.
A great role model? So, to you, a role model should cheat on their fiance and have an affair with a married man so she can get a part in a movie? Uh...yeah, sure.
You are what's wrong with women today. Being "pretty" doesn't make someone a role model. She's already shown herself to be morally bankrupt. Break a guy's heart and tear apart a family all at the same time, what a role model!
I agree with you Jill, and I hope you ignore all the bitter people who apparently have never done anything imperfect in their entire lives. We do not have enough details to make any judgment about Kristen based on what happened this summer (though I would like to point out the lack of logic that it had anything to do with getting a part since she already had the part, filmed the movie and it had been released in theaters). If I ever have a daughter, I would not at all mind them looking up to Kristen. She's not afraid to be herself, even when it's easier to conform. She seems to be a kind, intelligent young woman and you can't say the same for many people these days.
I'd definitely love to butter her muffin in the morning.
I truly adore her feet ...
KSTEW IS IT??? TWITTERN T HERE AHHH "FRENCH TOAST" I SAY!!!
FOR TONIGHT :)
Silly h0m0 glowing vampires and that wh0re need to evaporate
Why do they sparkle in sunlight? I forgot...guess it may not be forever after all.
I believe the reason you're looking for is because the writer is really terrible.
Twilight is not forever you twit! it's a bad movie made by bad actors, it' will be forgotten as soon as the next fad comes around. She's as smart as a bag of hammers
heres her cool pics and will be more soon :P http://aboutmoviesx.blogspot.com/
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want;
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil;
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the
Oh no! The twilight saga is over! I missed it? What a bummer! At least, it will last forever, or will it?
It's only a movie and somewhat close to an animated fiction. The actors are so-so but their egos are way out there ! It is not "for ever ", only as long as the film archives library will hold. Could be next month ? not a big deal , really.
they look alive and not full of drudge and misery like most people do today.
The dress needs a liner – the back view is horrid. The hair is a mess. I mean, she isn't an unattractive girl, but she is only considered beautiful because she is famous. Make-up and stylists do wonders for her in magazines, but in reality she is just an average looking girl.
WOW. What was the point of bringing her looks into this? You are unbelievably jealous. For the record, she is pretty gorgeous.
she appears insecure, poorly educated and somewhat unstable. She also has the aura of a druggie.....nothing beautiful at all, physical or otherwise. It's all smoke and mirrors.
I CAN imagine a world without Twilight! It is a beautiful beautiful place that, above all, does NOT sparkle.
yes only dum dum..fixing this morning and will continue to utilize it (hipps)–
thats all i care about...right....
and treat her better then date rihanna(hipps)
You can't spell. Go back to school.
myself the rest of my life then hang around a woman like rihanna(hipps)
because he wants her.
she has a great figure and looks wonderful..she's single she's not some desperate housewife.
That dress says desperation to me.
I think the dress is beautiful and love the color...I am not a seamstress but I think it is stunning on her.
First time I have seen her smile and not wearing black and I still don't like her she looks like a nasty witch! Don't know why he took her back????
thats the way kristen is...don't like change the channel
are you shy...
She is so plain it is rediculous. That's why she is so popular. She isn't threatening to uggo girls.
It's "rediculous" how you can't spell "ridiculous." She's beautiful – try getting a life.
She always has that same dumb expression on ther face. Like she is a trout trying to catch glues with her mouth part way open. A trout face.
The envy emitting from this comment is insane.
she's not icy and she is not dumb - get over it
She looks icky I think. And dumb.
she looks fantastic
