SAN DIEGO — This year’s San Diego Comic-Con has been akin to celebrating Christmas in July for “Twilight” fans.
Those lucky enough to catch the highly anticipated “Breaking Dawn” panel Thursday were treated to roughly seven minutes of footage, as well as the appearance of all of their favorite cast members.
MTV News chatted with Taylor Lautner briefly about the Comic-Con experience, as well as how he approached the much-discussed imprinting scene . “It’s tough. I think the best way is to just go off the book,” Lautner said. “People ask me questions all the time about imprinting, and I just want to say, ’Read the book: It explains it all.’ It’s very complicated,” he added. “I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I think they’ll be pleased.”
Lautner also continued to heap praise on his young co-star Mackenzie Foy, who plays Edward and Bella’s daughter, Renesmee. “The great thing with Mackenzie is she is the nicest girl,” he said. “She’s so outgoing. Everybody on that set loved her. She’s really talented. I can’t wait for everyone to see her; she’s not [featured] until the second one, though,” he pointed out.
In regard to which scene he’s most looking forward to seeing in the finished film, Lautner echoed the sentiments of plenty of fans before him. “I’m excited to see the honeymoon stuff — come on,” he said with a smile. “There’s a lot of good stuff.”
He added, “I’m super proud of the movie. I think everybody’s really happy with it. It’s great to be back at Comic-Con because we weren’t here for ’Eclipse,’ so it’s been a little while, so I can’t wait to see all the fans again.”
