“The Twilight Saga” goes on and on! I was excited to watch five new interviews with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke, the “Saga’s” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, Peter Facinelli (Dr. Carlisle Cullen), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale), and Casey LaBow (Kate) on YeahTV.com. What is YeahTV? Yeah, I didn’t know either, but from what I gather it’s a combination of pop up video and new interviews and commentaries on the film. Currently they are screening “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2.” There’s a rental fee of $4.99 to check out this user driven new content. I haven’t viewed it so I don’t know what’s all in it, but I can tell you that the five interviews featured on their site are brand new!
So what’s in them? “I’m like a serial killer on the battlefield,” is one of the great statements from Melissa Rosenberg as she talks about how she systematically decided on the deaths in the battle sequence for “Part 2.” She talks about choosing Carlisle to die first because she thought about “who’s going to devastate the audience most?” Melissa also has a great choice of art work behind her!
Next Catherine Hardwicke goes through how Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward. It’s a familiar story for many “Twilight” fans, but never gets old the way Catherine tells it sitting in her own home where his audition took place.
Peter Facinelli lays out the full story of the Carlisle wig saga – how things went so wrong and why it changed so much from movie to movie (or in some cases, especially in “Breaking Dawn,” from scene to scene).
Jackson Rathbone talks about the weeks of standing in fake snow filming the battle scene and what lead Toni Trucks to choreographing the dance off and how it all went down.
Finally Casey LaBow talks about how the cast reverted to childhood while filming the battle sequence in front of the green screen for weeks.
You’ll need to head over to YeahTV.com/Twilight to view the interviews and if you decide to rent “Breaking Dawn, Part 2″ on YeahTV, please let us know how the extras are. Here’s the trailer for the YeahTV:
