The release date for Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim’s Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 2 has been announced as October 11th of this year. Volume 1 was released last spring and became a record-busting bestseller right away. The cover image for Volume 2 was unveiled by the recently released The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, which was written by Meyer and for which some graphics were done by Kim.
Placing it side-by-side with the cover image from Volume 1, one can see that the two halves make a whole image of the meadow scene, as pictured by Young Kim.
Here’s what Stephenie Meyer is quoted to have said about Volume 2.
Billy talked about Breaking Dawn ending , Rob & more .
Twilightish: Do you have a favorite moment from any of the 5 films? Either on camera or off camera?
Billy: I think my favorite moments are yet to come in the next two movies, I can’t tell you what they are but they are yet to come!
Twilightish: Did you find it emotional to watch Bella get married?
Billy: You know what? It wasn’t so much that it was emotional. Those days we were shooting the wedding, in all honesty, there was something about them that brought stuff up not only in me, but in other people on the set. Something that was visceral. We ended up saying “this is kinda weird isn’t it?” I can’t explain what it was, it wasn’t like my daughter was getting married, but there was definitely something that was quite touching going on.
Twilightish: Were you ever Team Jacob? Or do you think Charlie would have chosen Edward between the two?
Billy: I have never played that game. I suppose had I ever read the books I may have had a stronger opinion, but I just don’t care. Sorry!! It’s not my thing. I think Taylor and Rob are great guys but I don’t get into the fantasy world of picking a favorite boy character.

Peter talked to EW about Nurse Jackie & Breaking Dawn.
I know you’re on set, how does it feel winding it down?
It’s been a whirlwind. We’ve been filming for six months. You take it day by day. I feel good about what we’ve shot. Now it’s up to the editor, and I hope it all comes out well. At the end of the day, it’s hard because you don’t have control over how it’s put together. But I’ve seen some put together, and it looks pretty good. I’m excited to see the finished product.
Anything you can tease to us about it? I hear the wedding scene is grand.
The wedding scene, first of all, was really beautiful. The way the set was decorated, the way they lit it. It’s in the backyard of the Cullen house, and they utilized the space really well. For us as actors, it was hard because it was raining the whole time we shot, but you’ll never see it on film. For us, it was raining and muddy, but on film, it will look beautiful. In the baseball sequence [from the first movie], it rained the whole time, but you can’t tell.
How did you magically stay dry?
It’s very difficult. I remember the first day [on the first film], we were in the midst of shooting, and they said [to the director Catherine Hardwicke], ‘”What do you want to do Catherine?” So they started passing out baseball hats to anyone whose hair looked too wet. It was movie magic; you never see it. It has to rain really hard for it to read on film.
Give me a visual tease of the wedding, for the wedding geeks, like yours truly.
It looks very magical. It was a real treat to be able to watch the two of them get married. It was a longtime coming, this wedding. It didn’t disappoint me when we shot it, so I think it will be magical.
Ah, the ultimate love triangle between vampire, werewolf and human! “The Twilight Saga” cast flies in at No. 2 on “Extra’s” Entertainer of the Year list.
Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novels — about a girl named Bella Swan who falls in love with vampire Edward Cullen, while also forging a close friendship with werewolf Jacob Black — made the tween set (and their mothers) swoon, launching a literary phenomenon in 2005 on a par with “Harry Potter.”
And then came the films. When the first “Twilight” movie was released in 2008, young stars Kristen Stewart (“Bella”) and Robert Pattinson (“Edward”) were catapulted into teen idol-dom, with hunky Taylor Lautner (“Jacob”) following their path in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” in 2009.
This past summer, the third film, “Eclipse,” opened to huge numbers, grossing over $300 million domestically. The highly anticipated fourth book, “Breaking Dawn,” will now be made into two movies, to be released in 2011 and 2012.

Good news for all of you Twilight fans. While at the American Film Market (AFM), Steve snagged a photo of an updated synopsis for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Parts 1 and 2, the final chapter of Stephenie Meyer’s insanely popular vampire saga. The news is unlikely to cause a stir in the devout faithful who have probably read Breaking Dawn multiple times by now. Those who are strictly invested in the cinematic adaptations, however, are likely to enjoy sinking their teeth into what we have to offer. Just beware of heavy spoilers, as the synopsis essentially reveals the entire plot.
Breaking Dawn is directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) from a script by Melissa Rosenberg (New Moon). The final chapter has been broken up into two parts with the first set for release November of 2011, and the second November 2012. Hit the jump for more.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world.
After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.
But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.
The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.
Currently in Production. U.S. release via Summit Entertainment, November 18, 2011, and November 16, 2012.
