You thought this was the end of the Twilight saga? Well, think again.
Midnight Sun revived Twilight fans from a 13-year slumber and we hear there’s going to be more.
Written from the perspective of Edward Cullen, Midnight Sun sold more than a million copies during its first week. The book retells the story fans have grown to love through Edward’s eyes and the difference between his and Bella’s perspectives sparked numerous discussions online.
To say the book was a success would be an understatement, and to underestimate fans of Twilight would be foolish. The book ignited a new wave of Twilight mania – one that died together with the last film Breaking Dawn. This resurgence in interest has inclined Stephenie Meyer to write two more books for the Twilight universe.
“There are two more books I think in the world that I want to write. I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there. I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new,” she said (via Yahoo). “For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world and new rules and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing.”
Twilight had its fair share of love and hate from a community of readers and moviegoers. Whilst pubescent teens fight over who’s best for Bella (are you #TeamEdward or #TeamJacob?), the films have aged to become a good source of memes and comic relief.
It is unclear if Midnight Sun and the two other books are going to be made into films. Even if it does, the chances of the main cast coming back together again are slim.
With Kristen Stewart growing her own audience in queer media and Robert Pattinson playing Batman and increasing in pedigree it is unlikely they’ll return to the franchise. Taylor Lautner’s post-Twilight career was a major flop following a major breakup with Valentine’s Day co-star and pop sensation Taylor Swift and a string of unsuccessful films (Valentine’s Day included), so who knows what he’s up to these days anyway?
