If you live in the San Diego area, we suggest you buy some ear plugs, stat. Variety is reporting that "New Moon" stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will appear at Comic-Con 2009 this week to promote the "Twilight" sequel. Cue the squealing teens!
Fans have been speculating for months whether the Saga's stars would turn up for the event, with keen interest focused on RPattz who is in the middle of filming "Remember Me" in New York City. According to the report, Robert, Kristen and Taylor will participate in an off-site press conference Thursday morning and will attend a Hall H panel later in the afternoon at the San Diego Convention Center. (View an entire Comic-Con schedule of events here.)
It's only fitting the trio return to the Comic-Con stage, as last year's event was, for all intents and purposes, "Twilight"'s unofficial coming out party. Robert got his first taste of the intense fandemonium that would bombard him in the coming months, as hundreds of screaming girls gathered to view sneak peek footage from the film and meet its rising stars. This year promises to offer much of the same, including clips from "New Moon" presented by director Chris Weitz. But expect the fan fervor (and security detail) to be ten times as intense.
If you can't make it to Comic-Con, but still want to live vicariously through those that are there, check back with Hollywood Crush this Thursday for "New Moon" updates throughout the day as we'll have a reporter planted in the highly anticipated panel!
