The “Twilight” films may be a thing of the past and stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s on and off screen romance is long over, but that doesn’t mean fans have to let go just yet.
Those looking for something more than DVDs to remember the momentous period between 2008 and 2012 when Bella Swan (Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Pattinson) were Hollywood’s it couple will soon have the chance to do so — provided they’re willing to drop some serious cash.
According to Entertainment Weekly, more than 900 props, costumes and pieces of the sets of all five “Twilight” films will be auctioned off online. The publication reports that especially desirable items to be included in the sale are actual costumes worn by Stewart, Pattinson and their co-star, Taylor Lautner.
Bella’s engagement ring, a suit worn by Edward during their honeymoon, Jacob’s (Lautner) motorcycle are just a few of the props going up for auction on Nov. 19 and 20. According to EW, the sale will be live-streamed from the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California. Locals can pop in for a preview of the sale from Nov. 18 to 20 or simply check out the auction website HERE.
Props aren’t the only thing still lingering following the success of “Twilight.” During an interview with Us Weekly in August, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg opened up about her one remaining regret about the franchise. She told the publication that there is a line in the first movie that has perplexed her since day one and continues to weigh heavy on her mind all these years later. She assured fans that it was never her decision to include that line about “spider monkey,” nor the subsequent mentions of it in the films that followed.
“In the first movie, there’s something about, ‘Be my spider monkey,’” she said. “I’m like, ‘Spider monkey? What the hell is ‘Spider monkey?’”
The upcoming auction isn’t the first time “Twilight” fans have had the chance to own special pieces of the film’s history. In September 2015, Stephenie Meyer, who penned the books for which the films are based, announced plans to release a special 10th anniversary edition of the first “Twilight” novel. When the book came out, fans learned that in the new edition — called “Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined” — had switched the genders of the main characters. In the book Beau is the male version of Bella and Edythe is the female version of Edward. Meyer addressed the decision during an interview with “Good Morning America,” telling viewers that she thought it was a fun and different way to honor the special anniversary.
