David Slade says Twilight fans are like Star Wars fans

David Slade Twilight slice

And I would totally agree with that. When you can't explain to a guy why you like Twilight so much this is my standard answer, "Twilight is the female Star Wars".

Like Star Wars fans we analyze every picture, clip, quote to make sure it's what we had envisioned when reading the saga. Here is what David Slade says about us:

Question: What will fans get most excited about, in regard to the special features and extras that you’ve selected for this DVD?

DAVID SLADE: You know, I don’t know. That’s bad. I made the film and haven’t even seen these things, except to approve them. What I will say is that I think it’s a point worth making that, for a film like
this, because of the fan base, I liken it to a subculture. It’s not
quite punk rock, but it’s a fan culture, like Star Wars fans.
It’s a positive thing and I’ve always been very, very supportive of fan
cultures. I’m a fan of all kinds of things. With a DVD, you want
something you can own, you can watch, you can come to grips with and you
can explore. It’s something larger than the film, when it’s going out
to a fan base like this. So, I guess that’s my answer. I hope that they
like all of it.

The thing that I remember doing myself is the commentary on the deleted scenes. I don’t do commentaries on films because A) I’m not very good at it and B) it’s an odd thing that I discovered, on my first
film, that you go through this really intense experience of making a
film and then you sit in a little room with a monitor and you reduce the
thing to a bunch of silly anecdotes. It’s really unfulfilling and I’ve
never really enjoyed listening to them anyway, so I just don’t do them.
I’ve made a point, since then, of not doing them.

But, one of the things I thought was important, particularly because of this fan base and because of how much stock they put into the stories, was just to talk about the stuff we took out – that we shot
and we didn’t put in – and the reasoning behind it. I felt it needed a
bit of justification. There were some scenes that I actually really
liked and would like to have put them in. And who knows? They may be
favorites of people within the fan cultures. Film becomes a living
organism. After awhile, it begins to tell you what it needs and you’re
usually best listening.

@Alison, you are sooo right about the Star Wars comparison. Star Wars was great and actually did it for me in its time, but what it lacked in emotion, Twilight more than made up for. I've been waiting a very long time for something to come along and tweak SW just a tad (sorry George Lucas, but you never did get the love parts quite right), and Twilight does it. And does it well.

I do agree that Twilight is the Star Wars for women. I don't know anything that spans ages with a sex for women then Twilight. Not even Sex in the City does that.
