In less than three weeks, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and some of its castmembers will take over Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con convention, and if it’s anything like the last two times the Twilight series has been featured at the event, fans should expect to see a couple of new film clips come down.
With Twilight in 2008, the featured panelists were Stephenie Meyer, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Catherine Hardwicke, Rachelle Lefevre, Edi Gathegi, and Cam Gigandet. For New Moon in 2009, they were Chris Weitz, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Ashley Greene (watch the panel videos here).
In both instances, new clips from each respective film were shown.
With Twilight, it was the ballet scene (incidentally, the first scene to be shot on-set), and with New Moon, two were shown: “Bella” and her motorcycle accident and then her chasing the clock in Volterra to rescue “Edward” from himself (videos attached).
So, what will we see from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 at Comic-Con?
The two New Moon clips shown were from the middle and end of the film. Twilight‘s was from the end as well.
We know from Wyck Godfrey (producer) that the split between Part 1 and Part 2 takes place “just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation.” So, the end of Part 1, presumably, would be in Carlisle’s office/”Bella’s” make-shift delivery suite. Think you’d even want to see a clip of that standing alone?
More likely than that, since a great deal of Part 1 will have to do with the wedding and the honeymoon, Comic-Con footage of the same may be squared upon that facet of the story; this would be more exciting, don’t you think?
Of course, as the first teaser trailer for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 indicates, “Jacob” won’t be forgotten in the story and we’ll get to see a bit of his (as well as the Volturi’s) side – things and events we couldn’t know from the book until the second section when the narrative perspective shifted over to him. So, there’s always the possibility of some Jacob (or Volturi) footage at Comic-Con as well . . .
Let’s not forget, too, that there are a few new characters coming around for Part 1 that might take the Comic-Con spotlight as well (the “Denali Coven,” mainly, and they’re also attendants of the wedding).
Time will ultimately tell, of course. The Breaking Dawn – Part 1 panel at Comic-Con will go first on Thursday, July 21st.
Until then, which clips are you hoping to see when the time comes? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
UPDATE: The timeslot for the Breaking Dawn panel has been set for 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. PST and more information can be found here.
