Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF) company, and Planet Hollywood International revealed details today for the Twilight Forever Fan Experience taking place in New York on November 3rd and 4th commemorating the fifth anniversary of The Twilight Saga’s original theatrical debut and the eagerly anticipated November 5th Blu-ray and DVD launch of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga. The two-day event features guest appearances by Cullen family vampires Peter Facinelli (Carlisle), Nikki Reed (Rosalie) and Jackson Rathbone (Jasper), musical performances, fan contests and photo opportunities as well as exclusive prizes and memorabilia giveaways from the blockbuster franchise. After the official festivities end, The Twilight Forever Fan Experience lives on with the actual exhibit, a film props installation, remaining on display at Planet Hollywood Times Square through the end of the year.
“We are proud to present the Twilight Saga Fan Experience and the Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga Blu-ray and DVD set, honoring the people who made this fifth anniversary possible – the fans,” said Nancy Kirkpatrick, Summit Entertainment President, Worldwide Marketing. “It is their enthusiasm for Bella and Edward’s love story which fueled the saga over the years, and we look forward to bringing the Twilight family together to celebrate once more.”
“We are thrilled to turn Planet Hollywood Times Square into Planet Twilight Forever and to work with our friends at Lionsgate and Summit on The Twilight Forever Fan Experience,” said Robert Earl, Planet Hollywood International, Inc. founder and Chairman. “We look forward to welcoming fans of the Twilight franchise from around the world to Planet Hollywood so they can have an up-close look at this fantastic collection of memorabilia from their most cherished movies.”
As previously announced The Twilight Forever Fan Experience begins Sunday, November 3rd with a marathon screening of all five films in Summit’s Twilight Saga franchise, along with fan contests and chances to win exclusive prizes and Twilight memorabilia throughout the day. Doors open to guests starting at 9:00 a.m. at New York’s Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 Cineplex (247 W. 42nd St., New York, NY 10036).
The Twilight Forever Fan Experience continues on Monday, November 4th when guests get a chance to rub elbows with actors Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone as they unveil the new Twilight Forever Fan Experience Exhibit at Planet Hollywood Times Square (1540 Broadway, New York, NY 10036), which will remain on display through the end of the year. Starting at 6:00 p.m., fans will be treated to the first opportunity to see the Twilight props installation, a chance to interact with the Twilight cast and a musical performance by Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald, whose song, “All I Ever Needed,” is featured on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack.
This is also the evening where the fans become the stars of The Twilight Forever Fan Experience! For a chance to win exclusive prizes and memorabilia giveaways, guests are encouraged to dress up as characters from the Twilight Saga — perhaps as a vampire, a werewolf or as the heroine bride of everyone’s favorite immortal love story — for special fan events (subject to change), including crowning The Twilight Forever Fan Experience ULTIMATE TWILIGHT FAN, a TWILIGHT CHARACTER LOOK-ALIKE CONTEST and more!

Check out these photos from Jackson and Sheila’s wedding that People has released earlier today! Also, thanks to epnebelle, a scan from the latest issue of People (which features a group shot of the bridal party) has been added to the gallery as well.
It’s a safe bet Sheila Hafsadi turned many a head when she walked down the aisle all dressed in white to marry Twilight alum Jackson Rathbone.
But the groom, 28, stole at least some of the show in his own eye-catching tartan tux he rocked during the Sept. 29 nuptials.
In a series of Alison Dyer-snapped photos released exclusively to PEOPLE, the newlyweds blended tradition with their trailblazing ways for their carnival-themed big day, which had 150 guests (including former costar Nikki Reed, who was in the wedding party) flocking to the Saddle Peak Lodge in Calabasas, Calif.
“It was a magical, emotional day filled with friends, family, balloons, popcorn, magic, and even a sword swallower! We are blessed in love and life and are so very thankful for our families coming together. It was our perfect day,” Rathbone tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Check out this new photo Devon Bostick recently tweeted of himself and Jackson the set of Aim High.

The Twilight Forever box set unveiled its promotional trailer on Friday afternoon, and in it we’re treated to our first look at new footage.
As you can imagine, the Twilight box set includes all five movies (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and Breaking Dawn – Part 2) as well as each of the film’s previously-released special features.
The bread and butter of Twilight Forever is the two hours of never-before-seen special features exclusive to the box set. According to a press release, the bonus material is made up of “a cast retrospective with new interviews; ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Character’ which showcases previously unreleased behind-the scenes moments on set; an exploration of the epic ‘Twilight FAN-omenon’ and individually highlights Edward and Jacob’s stories in ‘Twilight Forever: Edward’s Saga’ and ‘Twilight Forever: Jacob’s Saga.’”
Twilight Forever will hit store shelves on November 5. It will arrive just as we approach the one year anniversary of the final film in the saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, opening in theaters around the world.

Jackson Rathbone is officially a married man. The 28-year-old Twilight actor wed girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi in Malibu, Calif. on Sunday, Sept. 29, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.
“It was a small wedding,” an insider tells Us. “Just close friends and family only.”
Rathbone met Hafsadi, a burlesque dancer, during a tour stop with his band 100 Monkeys. They welcomed their first child together, son Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, in July 2012.
ETA: Jackson’s rep confirms the happy news to People.
Jackson Rathbone is a married man.
The former Twilight actor, 28, wed Sheila Hafsadi in Los Angeles on Sunday, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
“It was a small wedding,” a source says. “There were about 150 [guests].
“We are both spontaneous people. I wouldn’t say we are bohemian, but we are both artistic,” Rathbone told PEOPLE of meeting Hafsadi in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in 2011. He had been playing a show with his former band, 100 Monkeys, when he saw her working at the venue next door.
“It was one of those things. I always said I believed in love at first sight, but I never really had that feeling before.”
The couple have since become parents to a son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, now 15 months old. Soon after his birth, Rathbone told PEOPLE the pair planned to wed eventually – just not quite yet.
“Honestly, at the end of the day, you don’t need a piece of paper to say you are in love,” he said at the time. “We are dedicated completely to one another.”
The first set of photos of Jackson at the iHeartRadio Music Festival have been added to the gallery. More to be added soon!
