Twilight Poised To Take China By Storm

We all know how we felt waiting for New Moon. Now imagine that you live in China, where the books have recently been translated, and now Twilight is set to open. They still have to wait for New Moon.


See the full story and video on CCTV.

There is no doubt that Twilight is a world-wide phenomena. Just looking at our own Google Analytics we have had over 615 visitors from China from Beijing, Shanghi, Wuxi and other cities.

We even just heard in from Tahiti…that’s right… Tahiti! If four years ago someone had told us that people would be writing us from Tahiti and Abu Dahbi, I mean we would have asked them if they went off their meds.

Here’s what Natai from Tahiti had to say, “We were a little late, since the movie came out only yesterday, Wednesday 25th. But, on Saturday 21st, a New Moon Premier was organized, where they showed both movies of the Saga! It was great fun! It all started at 5:30, but we all met there around 1pm! I had ordered some T-shirts for us from cafepress. Here are some pictures, but there aren’t big enough…Even on the other side of the world, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, on a small island, people love Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight Saga in books and movies!!!”


  1. That is so cool! We are global.

  2. How cute you all are…Tahiti, cool place to live! When its good, its good. These books speak volumns no matter where in this world you live.

  3. I’ve heard that a lot of things get lost in translation on the way to China, are they really getting Twilight, or a really bad dubbed version?

  4. Aww, I LOVE their shirts! So cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yeah, I’m from Hong Kong, and I’m a total fan of Twilight Saga. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Mary Alice Cullen says:

    Chinesse books look thinner

    • yep, my friends say the chinese translation is not that good, compared to the english version

      • I live in Shanghai, and work at an International English school for locals. One of the English classes is reading Twilight, and the kids say the English version is better than the Chinese version.

    • Team Alice says:

      They are because Chinese is more condensed than English.

  7. I’m from Honduras but I live in Taiwan (China) and the movie comes out until December 4.. it’s hard, can’t wait no more!

  8. Lol, reading this I’m guessing you guys will be even more shocked when you hear where I’m from. :D.

  9. fanfromwuxi says:

    Right. Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China represent!
    ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just arrived here (expat) so I do my best to find where to watch New Moon – I still haven’t seen the movie T_T The idea is to watch it in its original English audio.

  10. I went to China last summer and got the Chinese translation of Twilight (it was the only book they had translated then). My cousin read it and totally loves it… I’m still trying to read through it (my Chinese is awful!). So far, they’re pretty much translating it close to the original, but it’s not as good as the English, of course, no translation ever lives up to the original!
