'Twilight' Fans Get Bonus DVD Footage and New Direction In 'New Moon'
"I love outtakes," Stewart said. "I love when the fantasy is broken down and revealed to everyone. I think it's funny. Literally, there wasn't a day that went by that we didn't have camera crews on set so I'm sure that they have hours of footage to cut together for the eager audience."
The sequel, New Moon begins shooting later this month, with Chris Weitz taking over directing. "Chris is like the most genuinely vested. He didn't just like jump on the bandwagon like, 'Ooh, let's get the next big successful movie. I want to do Twilight too.' He really likes it and is entirely involved. He's a really sweet guy and we're all really excited to work with him. I really like his work as well so it all just works out."
Stewart of course expected to continue the series with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, but these things happen in Hollywood. "It wasn't like it was a big bomb that was dropped. It wasn't such a shock. To be honest, I don't know about the sort of inner workings of whatever was going on within the studio. It was a comfortable situation."
Twilight streets on DVD and Blu Ray March 21.
