What is going on!? Have we unearthed new Twilight content that warrants a whole new cast and series?! As an avid lover of this series, I think not.
Lionsgate Television has just announced that there is a Twilight TV series in the works. The original (and only) film franchise with the actors that we all know and love grossed more than $3.4 billion worldwide. I don’t know who on this good green earth thinks they can create something with the intensity the original movie series has, so good luck to them.
Sinead Daily, who has written for shows like The Walking Dead: World Beyond, has been tasked to write the new Twilight script. It has not yet been determined if the show will be a remake of the books or a completely different telling. It is said that Stephaine Meyer will be involved with the television adaptation so there is hope that they will stay by the book.
I hopped onto Twitter ready to see the absolute chaos this announcement caused, but nothing could have prepared me for the slew of passionate tweets.
Brace yourselves; these Twilight fans have some words.
This was one of the first tweets I saw. I never know for certain if this account is truthful but it certainly was this time.
Agreed. How can these new directors and producers think they can grasp even an ounce of this cinematic masterpiece?
I think any chance we (the fandom) have to use this scene, we’ll do it in an instant. It truly encompasses any upsetting situation.
This scene is forever painted in my mind.
Though slightly terrifying, the tweet makes a good point.
The one and only Bella Swan!
I cannot fathom a new cast that has this kind of hold on the fandom.
This one had me absolutely wheezing. Edwards’s face says it all.
Chemistry on and off screen!
This tweet comments on not only the Twilight remake but the Harry Potter series that is also in the works,
I love when fandoms take interviews and relate them to the drama. This perfectly encapsulates a lot of us right now.
BWTHHYBL is stamped permanently on my brain.
This man IS Edward Cullen. I’m sorry Rob; I know you want to be Batman, but you just can’t shake being a vampire.
Why else would this be happening?
No one can hold a torch to her.
Is something wrong Edward? Such an adverse reaction when meeting the love of your life!
Once again, Edward has a perfect face for this news.
This compilation. Are you kidding me? Who can top this man!?
This. Photoshoot. The perfect ending to it all.
This was my entire feed. Needless to say, the Twilight fandom has some strong feelings about this new TV show. I am right there with the rest of the fandom when I ask, why is this happening?
