Twilight stars will not appear at 2010 Comic-Con

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: To the disappointment of Twilight fans and the delight of traditional Comic-Conners, the stars of “Eclipse” will not appear at the 2010 conference. This will be the first year since the release of the first film in the series that Twilight Saga stars will not participate in official events.

This news was uncovered when Summit Entertainment announced its lineup yesterday—conspicuously absent are advanced screenings and celebrity panels traditionally hosted for Twilight. Some speculated that the omission was driven by the fact that “Breaking Dawn” has not gone into production, which would hinder Summit’s tradition of previewing scenes from the upcoming film.

Full-access tickets to Comic-Con typically sell out months in advance, though schedules are rarely announced until one to two weeks before. Thousands of fans who bought and paid for trips in anticipation of seeing the stars of Twilight may be cancelling or regrouping around Comic-Con weekend plans.

In past years, Twilight fans spent their time camping out in line for, and attending, official Twilight events. In the absence of the franchise, it is unclear as to how Twilight fans will participate in the event and find natural opportunities to meet and come together.

As for other Comic-Con attendees, who resented the overpowering presence of Twi-hards, the news is considered good. True to its name, the original conference was geared to comic book enthusiasts—some purists would like to see it return to its roots.
