Well this is it. The last appearance of The Twilight Saga at Comic-Con will be July 12, 2012. Traveling back in Twilight history to summer 2008, Comic-Con was the event where the mainstream media finally woke up to the media powerhouse that is The Twilight Saga franchise. Ever since that explosive first appearance in Hall H, The Twilight Saga has been a force to be reckoned with at Comic-Con with every one of its fall release films. So what exactly can fans expect this year for the final hurrah of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2?
For starters, it goes without saying that there will be camping fans. If anything defines Twilight fans besides being highly passionate for their franchise, it’s their willingness to camp out to see the cast in any kind, and I do mean any kind, of weather. In 2009, fans camped out two days in advance in uncharacteristic, blistering heat on hard concrete. Last year, they camped out three days in advance, mercifully this time on grass, under an awning erected by the Comic-Con organizers. One of the hallmarks about these campers is the group camaraderie that grows up in these mini “tent cities.” It’s completely common-place for perfect strangers to strike up friendships and to amicably watch belongings while people take a break for food or rest rooms. Other franchises fans might have to worry about theft or line jumping, not so with Twilight fans. They have each other’s backs.
