Twilight Returns! Facebook and Lionsgate to Release a Series of Short Films
Sink your fangs into this: The Twilight Saga is getting a revival.
Two years after Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premiered on the big screen, your favorite vampires and werewolves are returning in an unusual yet exciting way. Facebook and Lionsgate announced yesterday that they're partnering to release a series of short films based off the characters that will be posted exclusively on the social network, The New York Times reports. The series, titled The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of 'The Twilight Saga,' will be directed by five aspiring female directors and will be chosen by a group of female panelists. The panel will include none other than Bella herself Kristen Stewart, along with author Stephanie Meyer, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer, among others.
“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, Lionsgate’s vice chairman, told the Times. Look out for the finished shorts sometime next year.
