This may be hard to believe, but it’s been more than 13 years since the first Twilight film hit theaters, and fans are pretty shook about how fast time has flown by.
For those who forgot, the film saga followed the relationship between a teenage girl, named Bella Swan, and a vampire, named Edward Cullen. The four-film series was based on the book series by the same name by Stephanie Meyer and starred some pretty big names like Ashley Greene, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Taylor Lautner, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone and Kellan Lutz.
“It’s lovely now that the mania is not so intense,” star Robert told USA Today about his Twilight years in April 2019. “People come up (to me) and just have very fond memories of it. It’s a really sweet thing. I think the only scary part was right in the thick of it all, when it was very, very intense. Now the intensity has died down and it’s just very warm memories.”
He continued, “It seems like with younger people in their late teens, early 20s, it’s sort of become quite a hip thing to like. It’s a fascinating second wave of people appreciating it, which is kind of cool. I think when anything becomes a massive phenomenon, there’s always people who get annoyed because it’s just everywhere. But now it seems like a retro thing: the soundtrack, the fashion. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s so late 2000s.'”
Following its initial release, the Twilight movies were a massive success and fans are still obsessed with them to this day! In fact, even the stars are down to return for more movies.
While chatting with Us Weekly in October 2018, Jackson said it “would be fun” to see prequel movies! “I think there’s a whole universe there they could really expand and we got to finally start seeing a bit of it in Breaking Dawn,” the actor gushed at the time, adding that he’d “love to see” more from Jasper and Alice.
