“The Twilight Saga” is returning. Lionsgate has officially announced that the saga will continue on via five short films that will be released on Facebook in 2015.
‘The Twilight Saga’ to continue
According to the NY Times, “The Twilight Saga” execs and author Stephenie Meyer announced that they will chose five female directors to direct short films based on the “Twilight” characters, and release them exclusively to Facebook.
“We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of ‘Twilight’ to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” Michael Burns, Lions Gate’s vice chairman, said in an interview.
“This is the just the beginning — a template, if you will,” Burns added. “You can probably guess what might be coming next,” he said getting “Twilight” fans (aka “Twihards) excited at the possibility of a sixth movie.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner likely no involved in ‘Twilight’ short films
However, don’t expect to see Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner, as they likely won’t be starring in the short films about “The Twilight Saga,” and no main focus or character information has been released.
However, “Twilight” fans across the globe are excited that the saga will continue on in some form, and already dying to see the new short films, which will hit Facebook sometime in 2015.
