Fans of the Twilight series will be excited to know that Summit Entertainment has now released a compilation of all the movies included in the Twilight saga.  Twilight Forever:  The Complete Saga Box Set is now available and includes all five feature films:  Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Part 1, and Breaking Dawn Part 2.  Additionally, the 10 disc set has special features from each of the movies and a bonus disc entitled Twilight Forever with scenes that were unavailable prior to this release.  Besides the extensive video selections available the set comes with a two sided box featuring pictures of the stars in the movies and a photo album featuring pictures from the movies.

The creator of the Twilight series

The Twilight series was the inspiration of Stephenie Meyers who lived in the State of Arizona and was a stay at home mom with three children.   She came up with the characters for the series in a dream that she had one night that she could not get out of her mind and finally decided to compose the works that became the Twilight series.  When she discusses how she compiled the novels she said it was difficult to balance the requirements of being a full-time mom with trying to write but took advantage of nap times and late nights to put her masterpieces together.  When her books were published they quickly made the bestsellers list on the New York Times and attracted the attention of movie makers who brought her works to the big screen.

Twilight

Twilight was the first book and movie of the series and introduces us to the main characters in the series.  There is Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, the young girl who moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father leaving her mother and her new husband to work on his baseball career.  She becomes attracted to the vampire Edward, played by Robert Pattinson, who lives with his pseudo family of vampires in the town of Forks.  Edward becomes obsessed with Bella and tries to avoid her but through a series of events he rescues her from harm and ends up falling for her and her for him.  In the midst of this relationship Bella reacquaints with an old childhood friend Jacob played by Taylor Lautner.  The unlikely couple then start to navigate the pitfalls of the human/vampire relationship attracting the attention of outside vampires who want to hunt the exquisite blood scent that Bella provides.  They travel to Arizona and must kill the hunting vampires to protect Bella from harm.
