3 Years Ago Today, The 'Twilight' Magic Started

On February 25, 2008, Catherine Hardwicke yelled “action” for the first time on a film many thought would have a nice little run with fair box office numbers and that would be that. That film was ’Twilight’ and three years later people all over the world are still excited for anything and everything related to Edward, Bella, Jacob, The Wolf Pack, The Volturi and The Cullens. 

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are part of the ‘Twilight’ phenomenon and at this very moment are in Vancouver filming the final two parts of what I think has been an amazing, wonderful journey for all. 

Because of ‘Twilight’, many doors have opened for Robert, Kristen and the rest of the cast. People who never really knew anything about them have now come to love them almost like family and have added other films each has been in to their growing DVD collections.

‘Twilight’ has turned people of all ages onto reading again and the films have introduced bands and music that many would likely never have considered listening to had they not been included in the soundtracks.

People young and old have witnessed the beautiful love story of Bella and Edward on screen as well as the love story of Robert and Kristen off screen renewing lost faith that true love can happen in this crazy, messed up world we live in today. 

Young people have learned from the characters that it is ok to be different. You do not have to be with the popular people to be cool or important. You can be yourself and still have friends who love you just for being you. It’s ok to take chances and stand up for what you believe in , and even though you may face some scary challenges along the way always go with your heart and never give up on your dreams.

‘Twilight’ has affected fans in different ways. For many it has brought healing, new beginnings, new friendships, love, laughter and a brighter outlook on life. It has also had a great impact on the economy bringing jobs, tourism and boosts in business to the cities where the filming has taken place.

Not everything has been wonderful and great. There have been poor reviews by critics not only of the films but also the actors and whether they’ll make it in the business once the ’Twilight’ Saga ends. There have been crazy fan wars over which actors and characters are the best. There has been constant analysis over Robert and Kristen’s behavior, body language, attitude towards media, clothing style, the way they speak, smile, or don’t smile and their refusal to talk about their personal lives or relationship. There have been some uncomfortable fan encounters, and continuous rude, invasive run ins with paparazzi. Some fans hate Kristen, and make threats against her simply because she IS with Robert.

Some fans hate other fans because they choose to acknowledge, believe in, and support the obvious truth that Robert and Kristen are a couple off screen. Haters with their own personal, twisted, delusional agendas refuse to accept and support the truth because that would mean coming up with new fantasies, and new people to hate.

Three years ago Robert and Kristen along with the rest of the amazing cast brought characters to life that will continue to captivate us long after the final “cut” is yelled. When the credits role for the very last time it will be sad and many of us will need tissues. I am grateful my children and I have been able to experience the magic of ‘Twilight’ together. I am excited to see Robert, Kristen and the rest of the cast move on to new film projects, but ‘Twilight’ will always hold a special place in my heart.}

I never felt this way for a small film like Twilight. How huge Twilight have become in the movie world.

honestly, i never in a million years imagined that i would fall in love with Twilight. I mean everyone around me was going crazy about the movies and books but it never really interested me. That is until last year when my cousin made me watch this movie for the first time. That was it, that's all it took, i fell completely in love. From that moment on i got my hands on all of the books (which i read in a total of 3 days) and went to see Eclipse in theatres which was amazing with everyone screaming,haha. Well, here i am now, totally and completely obssessed and thanks to Twilight i found Robert Pattinson,lmao. it'll definitely be so sad when it's over

Belissimo, Bella!


I got into Twilight as it looked very interesting.  The hype/popularity didn't interest me at all.  I wanted to see/read it for myself and see if I liked it.  "Girl falls in love with a Vampire and he with her..." Madly in love, it sounded sweet, interesting and different - like me :)  And I was enthralled and it came to me in a time of my life when I most needed something special, inspiration, love and friendship and with Twilight found all three and more.


And I saw the first 2 movies, then bought Twilight on DVD.  At first Edward was my fave, soft spoken, polite (the opposite of Jacob) and I liked Bella, she wasn’t a supermodel and a bit clumsy, also like me and embarassed about it and not realising how special she was - and I do that too.


When I saw Twilight for the 3rd time I realised how beautiful Carlisle was (mind, body and spirit) and so he became my fave and after New Moon, I decided I adored Aro too :)  He's just so gorgeous and peppy (and I *love* Michael Sheen!!) so regal, mischievous, cute and dangerous, but at the same time, sad and behind those bid, red eyes craving love, so I gave him mine :)


Blessings TwiFans, and a special thank you to Stephenie for bringing this magic into my life and the lives of millions of others.  I wish more people would look past the hype and fall in love with Twilight as I did :)  You're an awesome inspiration!  As a writer myself you’ve inspired me to write (not only Twilight fanfic) but original stories and novels of my own, including many novels and short stories I had the ideas for long before I heard of Twilight, so Grazie, Bella!



Salut & Ciao!


Titania :)

Omg I almost cried! like robertfanxxxx I got goosebumps while reading this... It was like a film in my mind: The first moment I cried while reading twilight...

the first moment I told my best friend about my obsession...

 spring 2009 when I was in my twilightworld and nobody could get me out of it..

when everything was new and exciting!....

the days when the only thing I could think of was "why can't I have a life like bella? why is my life so boring?" ;D....

the weekends I spent lying on the floor and reading twilight again and again....

the many times I watched the scenes on youtube because the DVD wasn't out yet....

the incredible experience I  made when I went to the "New Moon Fanevent in Munich" and saw Rob & Kristen & Taylor ...♥

the days when the trailers came out and the ones when I got my DVDs...

these moments when I have a huuuuge twilight-thinking-of-edward-relapse!


It's gonna be a very sad day... when I realize everything is over.. but on the other hand, when I had finished "Breaking Dawn" I wasn't as sad as I expected, because I prepared myself for this moment..

wow three years :D its been so long. And to actually think with these movies my family

and i have became so close over them. I am going to be so depressed when the final breaking dawn

it filmed. But like my mom always tells me: "Every good think must end eventually." True mom...very true.

And wow to think three years ago i was only seventeen. Wow! And yet the twilight movies has been a big part of my life! I'm going to carry these movies with me for my whole life! There very good memories if i could add <3

3 years ago, i became obsessed with a little movie called twilight, i fell in love with the story, the characters, the places, the music, there are no words to explain just how much i love these books and movies, everything about them. twilight has altered me, it has affected me (along with millions of other people) in such a huge way. I still remember the day that i first saw twilight-3 years ago, it feels like just last week. these movies and books, along with the actors/directors/producers/writers who brought it to life will forever stay in my heart. It will be extremely sad when it finally ends and i dont know what i will do with myself when the end credits start rolling, but i do know-that i will remember twilight for the rest of my life.
