'Twilight' tour kicks off Friday
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- From a best-selling novel series to a first film, and now a highly anticipated second movie, the "Twilight" franchise is one of the most popular series in Hollywood. A nationwide "Twilight" tour kicks off Friday night.
The sequel's soundtrack is currently number one on all charts as well.
Bands featured in the soundtrack for "New Moon" performed at the kick-off festivities in Hollywood and Highland Friday night.
Also, select cast members from the movie held a question-and-answer session.
"Twilight" fans by the hundreds all lined up to see stars from the film, hear a question-and-answer session from cast members and for some "Twi-hards," autographs too.
"I'm so excited! I waited in line all night in the cold forever to get a wrist band," said Natalie Ontiveros, an avid "Twilight" fan.
At this point, to say that the "Twilight" saga "New Moon" is highly anticipated is an understatement.
"I love the movie, I love the CD, I love all of the cast people, everything, the director, I hope he does an amazing job with this movie because the last movie was kind of a little disappointing ," said Alice Garcia, another "Twilight" fan.
Women clearly made up most of the people awaiting the tour's kick-off event, but there were a few men in the mix.
"I came with my wife to support her," said Paul Hiott.
"I have a good husband," said Rhiannon Hiott.
"I'll make sure she doesn't leave with any of those vampires," Paul added.
"It's a wolf pack, honey," Rhiannon corrected. "I like the darker ones."
Approximately 50 percent of the people gathered in Hollywood were clad in black "New Moon" T-shirts, making the "Twilight" fans easy to pick out.
The stars of "New Moon" are on a promotional blitz right now, and you're about to see them on every TV talk show. They'll also show up on the covers of dozens of magazines.
