Bill Condon Bids a Fond Farewell to the Saga

This letter from Bill Condon was posted on the Twilight Facebook page a couple of days ago (I think...wtf do I know about Facebook??? I am a fb holdout!) and it made me a little teary... Get the tissues out - again! *sigh*

Greetings To Our Global Twihard Family

Greetings to our global Twihard family,

On the flight now from Madrid to Berlin, I wanted to check in one last time, as you're finally getting a look at what we've all been working on so intensely.  It's hard to believe that after our Berlin premiere tonight, my TWILIGHT journey will finally come to a close.  It's been almost three years since I first wrote to you.  I'm very proud of what we've created together since then, and I hope that PART II fulfills your expectations for the grand finale to Stephenie's sprawling saga. Fingers crossed that you've also managed to stay at least mostly spoiler-free, in order to enjoy the twists and parting gifts we have in store for you...

Thank you again for making me feel like a member of your fandom family online...for sleeping in The Line in San Diego in order to laugh with us in Hall H...for traveling great distances to join us in L.A. for last year's Tent City and this year's Fan Camp.  Above all, thank you for trusting me with this universe you care so deeply about - we tried to match your intensity in our attention to every detail.  That said, I don't think I'll ever live down the shame of being spied on by Twihard covens around the world on our very first night of shooting in Rio.  Thanks to photos shot and instantly posted online of Bella and Edward on their honeymoon, we were called out in real time for missing a certain engagement ring...  (Sorry -- again!)

As with you all, what I'll take with me from my time in Forks are so many great friendships - our massive cast of talented actors, and new creative partners such as Melissa Rosenberg, Guillermo Navarro and Phil Tippett.  I hope to know them all for years and to work with them again soon, making movies yet to be dreamed up.  At the L.A. premiere Monday night, Phil said we should make a "bloody, giant monster movie."  But is there room for a musical number?

See you at the theatre.

Forever,
Bill

  2. There had better be some AWESOME extras!

    After that we only have to look forward to the endless box sets that they will release for years and years with random "extra" footage lol... It'll be like Star Wars or Blade Runner but for h00rs...

  3. I think it's pretty awesome that Bill wrote another letter to the fans. I shudder to think of what a disaster the past 2 movies could have turned out to be if they weren't done right, and I think he really delivered.

    LOL at all the DVD versions and box sets that you KNOW we're going to be buying forever! I want the one that comes with a lock of Edward's hair :)

  4. Bill is the man. And he did do a pretty awesome job with the movie(s). Then he goes and writes us love letters and whatnot for getting his ass paid. That's classy stuff.

    Now put in some killer bloopers/extras in the dvd, and promise us that Rob and Kristen will be doing the commentary. Taylor can come too.......I guess.
