It might be best to start queuing now folks.
Summit Entertainment has confirmed that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be the opening panel in Hall “H” at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego on Thursday, July 12.
And if the 7 million viewers that powered the recently released BD – Part 2 teaser into Yahoo’s record breaking books are anything to go by, an appearance at Comic-Con will be heavily attended by saga fans.
A press release at Twilight Lexiconrevealed, Summit Entertainment will show “exclusive footage” from Breaking Dawn – Part 2 as well as the usual “cast and filmmaker Q&A session.”
That “filmmaker” is almost certainly director Bill Condon, although it could also mean the film’s producers. It’s not yet been confirmed whether the series literary creator Stephenie Meyer will be there, or which cast members.
Undoubtedly fans will be hoping Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will put in an appearance, but right now the place settings are anyone’s guess.
Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will also be featured at the Summit Entertainment booth at the convention. The press release promises,“Those who stop by will have the chance to attend autograph signings, participate in contests and collect free giveaways all weekend long.”
Held from July 12 –15, Comic Con is usually an uproarious event with appearances from a variety of pop culture shows, comics, books and, of course, studios promoting their upcoming movies.
Past Comic-Cons featuring The Twilight Saga cast have been massive hits with fans. If 2012 will be your first time in San Diego, take a look at some of that past action below for an idea of what to expect.
