• In Twihards travel around the globe and meet the real life people that make up the greatest fan community in the world.”


  1. So…does this mean everyone will have the same DVD? We don’t have to buy from 5 different stores to get all the special features?!

    • Looks like it!! I’m really excited but Dec seems so far away!

      • sounds like they listened to us. They are willing to take the cut in sales from people who would buy it from 3 different stores. Thanks for being good to your loyal fans, Summit!

      • Can’t wait for those awesome commentaries. Glad they didn’t let us down, I know some people worried because David Slade doesn’t do commentaries. Glad Kristen & Rob did one. I missed hearing what they had to say on New Moon.

  2. Why no Taylor Launter makes no sense.

    • Maybe they are saving that for the Breaking Dawn, since Jacob has his own section.?? Could be coordinating three schedules might not have worked out…all three were filming other movies.

  3. Gald that they included Stephenie Meyer. 🙂

  4. Kate Canfield says

    One day I too will get to see the area of Forks. I will enjoy the hell out of it and prob not take my husband (in case I find Edward…LOL) plus I am sure I would enjoy the trip much more….

    • I am with you Kate, I too would like to go to Forks. Leave the husband behind because I would have a better time without him. This would be a great trip. Where you from?

    • That is a great idea! Maybe we should all have a Lexicon ladies only trip to Forks! 🙂

    • Include me in too. Our husbands can watch our kids!!

    • Twilight wasnit actually filmed in Forks.

      Several of the Forks town scenes were filmed in St. Helens, OR.

      The beach where they go surfing is filmed at Ecola State Park-Indian Beach, Cannon Beach, Oregon.

      The greenhouses where they go on a field trip was filmed at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, OR.

      There is at least one shot of Multnomah Falls, off I-84 in the Columbia River Gorge.

      The prom was filmed at the Viewpoint Inn 40301 East Larch Mountain Road, in Corbett, Oregon

      High school scenes took place at Madison High School in Portland, OR and St Helens High School, St Helens, OR.

      The scene where the “bad” boys accosted Bella up till the scene where Edward takes Bella to dinner were all filmed in St Helens, OR.

      Bella’s house is located in St Helens, OR. The snow seen around the outside of her house was fake as it was a dry fall day.

      When they did the lion fell in love with the lamb scene, they did it in Los Angeles.

      Baseball scene was filmed at Oxbow Park.

      Charlie’s House
      184 S 6th St, St. Helens, Oregon

      Edward Saves Bella
      225 S 1st St, St. Helens, Oregon

    • After going to Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge on vacation and then sitting back and watching Twilight again there is a lot of shots of the falls in the back ground, like when Bella and Edward are sitting on the beach its in the back drop, when they are playing baseball its in the back drop.
      I didnt make it the town of St Helens, instead I went to Mt St Helens and viewed the beauty and destruction of a active volcano which is on the other side of the town 🙂

  5. where can i find these because i have looked on and none of them are there and i really want them!! i already have twilight in forks and enjoyed that. plz help me lol xx

  6. What about international release dates, this site is great at keeping fans informed with all the latest Twilight news but it all seems to be centered around the US when there are tons of international fans too! 🙂

    • Twilight_News says

      Sorry, but unfortunately what happens is that the foreign distributors aren’t good about sending us info and there are well over 50 foreign distributors. The only people who are somewhat good are the folks at E1 who do the UK, Ireland, and I think Australia, however this time they didn’t send any info 🙁

  7. Noah Brighten says

    In truth I think it is great that we don’t have to purchase 40 variants of the same thing to get all of the bonus material. I was sort of irritated over New Moon’s release, as my Blu-Ray version didn’t have all the supplemental material, and freaking Blu-Rays a lot more expensive than standard deff DVDs. Keeping it simple is a plus for me.

    As for Taylor Lautner and commentary… in truth, I think it has more to do with his availability at the time, than anything else. Taylor has been extremely busy the last few months with movie schedules literally being bumped back to back with his Twi-tours, so he simply may have not had time to get there to do the audio track. In truth, I would have loved to hear his bantor with Rob, but alas, here’s hoping he’ll have time for the BD release.

  8. Thank God Summit got it together like the first time around! I was so mad that I bought a special edition of New Moon and didn’t get any deleted scenes. I can’t wait to stand in line again with my niece and sister till midnight!

  9. Sounds like good news!!
    And right around holiday season time.
    I am glad that it sounds like it’s going to be a standard special edition and not giving giving special features to different stores.
    I was very disappointed that I had to go to Borders, Barnes and Noble, Target, Wal Mart, and Best Buy to compare special features. I think that was not a good move on Summit’s part.

    • Well said! Summit’s treatment of the fans with the New Moon DVD releases was really poor, and only highlighted the greed factor. I was dreading the news about the Eclipse DVD, for fear they would repeat or (gasp!) expand the distribution of extra features across so many choices. Perhaps they paid attention to the complaints of the fans and learned their lesson. Let’s hope so!

  10. that is too long to wait what the heck

  11. I cant wait for this to come out, finally some deleted scenes (one im guessing to be Edward and Alicer in the volturi – as it was never shown but was seen in sneak peeks) and commentry with Kristen and Robert – thats going to be some amazing stuff.

    I dont understand the release date though :/ I mean Toy Story 3 was out what? last month? and its out next month… Twilight was out over 2 months ago and we still have 3 months to go 🙁

    Oh my god I just had a empathy… maybe they are waiting so they can have a speak peek of breaking dawn on there 😮

    • Noah Brighten says

      Toy Story 3 was released in May, if I remember correctly. As it was released before Eclipse, it makes sense that Eclipse would be released later. You also have to consider that Summit just rereleased Eclipse to the threaters. Even if it is just for a limited time, they have to give it time to make enough money back to justify the cost of the rerelease.

      As for a sneak peek of Breaking Dawn… I strongly doubt it, as they will be in the middle of production at that point. In short it will be too early to show off anything.

  12. Can’t wait. Looking forward to it.

  13. Okay, I live in denmark. Is the release date the same or is it just in Us?

    • I don’t know, it seems unless you live in the US no one cares too much 🙁

      • Noah Brighten says

        It’s not that we don’t care… it just that there aren’t any other countries besides the United States. 😛

        Typically speaking international release dates occur after the US release date, if the feature was produced in the USA. I think the UK release date is Dec. 6th… It all depends on the agreements the said country has with distribution…

        • Lol Noah, spoken like a true American,there are alot of countries besides the US, many thT have been around for centries before the states were even discovered! ;P He he

          It is the 6th Dec for UK but I hear its 1st Dec for Australia. Sorry I don’t know anymore for other countries at the moment.

      • umh yes there is for canada astrailia england and us

    • actually its coming out in canada to since i live in canada i know but you can also go to relase date for eclipse the movie on d.v.d in denmark same thing i did except i typed in canada

  14. Yay! I got the one thing that I really wanted…commentary from Kristen and Rob! I still love the one from Twilight.:) I am so happy that they aren’t making us figure out where to buy the DVD. That was so annoying. And the commentary with Stephenie will be great.

  15. Wow!! Amazing news- it made my day. I can’t wait for the dvd to be out to see the deleted scenes. Plus I’m glad they included Stephenie’s commentary as well…

  16. switzy4ever14 says

    oh my gosh this is so great. right near christmas, GREAT features, and finally none of that “which dvd i should buy” drama. plus a sequel to twilight in forks!

  17. YAY!

  18. will eclipse be out in republic of ireland on the 6 december too i havent seen it yet and i cant believe i have to wait till decrmber to see it

  19. whats the release date in South Africa

  20. Target does have a different version… It is the same as the 2 disc special edition but also includes 6 collectible photo cards….Looks like a mini poster too…

  21. I can’t wait, that would be my early christmas present.My husband hates me when i go to utube looking at all the eclipse videos from the movie.My favorite scene the proposal from edward!I’m so excited,counting the Days…………

  22. Denisse F. says

    December? The other two movies came out on DVD approx 120 days after theater release! What’s with the longer time? Also, why try to one up HP and put a YEAR in between the two parts of Breaking Dawn?

  23. why wait so long I am dying to get the dvd for eclipse mentally Why didnt they just have come out in August Why wait

    • Look out for overseas editions. Australia has extra Australian only content of Kristen and Taylor, also they have limited edition metal cases. Japan has their own version as well. Watch out for France and Italy, they will probably have their own special editions as well. The UK might have additional content as they did with New Moon and Twilight.

      Happy collecting!

  24. I just hope that they realese Eclipse soon!!! 🙂 I can’t wait!

  25. I can’t wait till eclipse is on DVD! I’m getting it for Christmas!
