Twilight Saga DVD Retropective: What Are the Highs and Lows

In her column for, Laura explores the history of the Twilight Saga DVD’s. Which are the fan favorites, stand-out moments, and what is missing.

The one item that fans seem to universally want is actor commentary by the three leads: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. The original Twilight DVD featured commentary by director Catherine Hardwicke, Pattinson, and Stewart. All of them were relative rookies in the commentary process at that time. There was a refreshing honesty in the playful banter and downright quirkiness that went on. It wasn’t canned, and it embraced the cheesier moments of the film. Pattinson’s self-deprecating comments such as, “Looking scary with a baseball outfit on and a little bouffant, you know, it just does not work. Especially with sculpted eyebrows … I’m really scary in reality…” endeared fans to him all the more. People felt as if they were watching the film with their friends commenting.

  1. Love the article, Laura! Thanks for the quote. :^)

    It’s going to be a long day!!! Midnight can’t come soon enough.

  2. Really? Commentary is more in demand than deleted/extended scenes?

    • Yes, sadly it is most exciting for some of us to watch with the commentaries – the Rob and Kristen ones, anyway. Of course in a perfect world, they would give us more of both commentaries and D/E scenes. Maybe in a collector’s edition one day . . .

  3. agree seen the bd dvd . No deleted or extended scenes . Twilight dvd was the best.

  4. well i went to walmart to get tea and well i went an 1 hour for the movie call twilight saga breaking dawn part 1 and an half hour later am watching it and i bought to one blue ray and the other dvd gift box yes i got part 1

  5. Anyone else notice that at the end of the wedding video that the date on the announcement is August Thirtieth? Was this purposely done or just a typo I wonder? Maybe I’ve just got too much time on my hands. 🙂

    • I remember hearing somewhere that the invitations had originally contained a misprint that no one noticed until one of the fansites got a hold of one – I guess we know now what the misprint was. Kind of sad that no one cared enough to correct it here. 🙁

      • It isn’t the wedding announcement, just the announcement that they were married that day. But I agree that someone should have noticed during the editing process.
