Twilight stars kick off Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO—the stars of the Twilight series came out for the first day of Comic-Con.

Hundreds of fans camped out all week to guarantee their spot for the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 panel.

''I feel like I gave it absolutely every last drop, squeezed every last drop of my soul into [this movie],” Kristen Stewart said.  “I feel ready to walk away. I still love thinking about it. I feel like we did our best so it`s fine that it’s done.”

The cast of Twilight took the Comic-Con stage for the last time.

The stars of the vampire franchise were virtually unknown five years ago and now they are some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

“The first time [at Comic-Con] was literally the first time I`ve experienced the kind of enormous crowds,” Robert Pattinson said. “I remember being bewildered afterwards and thinking  ‘what`s happened? What have I done?’”

Six thousand lucky fans at the panel saw the first seven minutes of Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 2.

'The thing I love about comic con is that it`s not just about Twilight. It`s about so many other things,” Twilight star Ashley Greene said. “I feel that everyone comes together and supports each other and there is just this overwhelming excitement about [Comic-Con] and it`s just a cool thing to be apart of.”

The final Twilight movie picks up as Kristen Stewart’s character Bell Swan becomes a vampire.

“You see her just lose herself in [the experience] and not be able to deny it and then [she] actually becomes somebody who can own it and becomes comfortable in it.” Stewart said. “At the end she`s gotten everything that she wants it`s the most satisfying experience.”

Breaking Dawn Part Two hits theatres November 16.

“I think it`s emotional for all of us in the same way,” Taylor Lautner said. “It was a bummer for us to finish up and I think it will be emotional for all of the fans to see it come to a close.”
