The big day is finally here! New Moon comes out tonight at midnight!
Psst! I have a secret for you, and I’ll tell you what it is if you promise not to hate me for it. I’ve just come home from seeing New Moon. It’s a perk of being a movie reviewer. Let me tell you, if you’re a Twilight fan, I think you’ll be pleased with Twilight Saga: New Moon.
But to help you while away the time until then, I’ve put together a New Moon post for you to keep you entertained. We’ve got the video of the Oprah interview, the answer to the Oprah teaser about a fifth Twilight book which was never answered on the show and Stephenie Meyer answering fan questions. Hope you enjoy!
Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight Saga, made a rare appearance on Oprah last week. Here’s what she said on her website pre-interview.
You know I’ve been doing the hermit thing this last year, in so far as media is concerned, and I’m not changing that now, but I am making an exception. I’m doing this for a good reason: I am so pleased and amazed and thrilled with what Chris Weitz has done with New Moon that I want to talk about it, and to show my support for him. And since I’m only doing one interview, better make it big. Really big. So….I will be on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Friday, November 13th.”
During the show, Oprah teased, “Coming up, will there be a fifth book in the Twilightsaga? Stephenie answers that later.”
Only she didn’t answer it, because Winfrey didn’t ask, because of time constraints. A deluge on complaints flooded the show. Here’s their response…
“Reps for the show said that sometimes Winfrey doesn’t get to every question on live television, but good on Oprah’s folks for following up with Meyer backstage after the show.
When pressed about the possibility of a fifth “Twilight” book, Meyer gave a lengthy, yet vague answer.
“I can’t answer it. The way I write, it’s what makes me happy. Like, I can’t write when people are looking over my shoulder,” Meyer said.
She also admitted to some vampire fatigue. “I am a little burned out on vampires right now,” she said. “I think I need a little break. I might go spend some time with my aliens. I might do something completely different. I’ve got to cleanse the palate. I may come back to it. I did envision it as a longer series. But I wrapped ‘Breaking Dawn’ in a way that I felt satisfied with, so if that moment didn’t come, I’d be OK.”
A few days later Meyer answered some fan questions on her own website – www.stepheniemeyer.com.
“My favorite thing about Chris Weitz: everything. Sounds hyperbole-ish, but he’s really that amazing. If you follow along on some of the cast interviews you’ll hear the same thing over and over. We all adore Chris. I would have to say that my very favorite thing about Chris as a director, coming from my unique position, is his passion for being true to the source material. He really immersed himself in the Twilight world and came to the set with the feel of it already in his head. We were very much on the same page. Second thing, he listens really well—to everybody, cast and crew.
In comparing New Moon to Twilight, I would say that the biggest difference in style is that Chris is more classic while Catherine is a little more edgy and modern. I wouldn’t want both movies to be the same, though. I like seeing different interpretations. After all, no two people see the same thing when they read a novel. I enjoy seeing that visually.”
Hope this has helped you pass the long agonizing hours until midnight tonight. You can make it!
