Following a night of camping out in the mild San Diego night where they met, took pictures with and received autographs from the Breaking Dawn cast, Twihards packed Hall H en masse to bid their beloved franchise farewell. Well, at least farewell from Comic-Con.
The panel included cast members Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Elizabeth Reaser and Edward and Bella Cullen’s daughter Renesmee aka Mackenzie Foy. The cast was joined by author Stephenie Meyer.
Before launching into Q&A, we saw new footage from the upcoming second part of Breaking Dawn, including the first seven minutes of the movie.
As had been rumored a few days leading up to the Twilight panel, Meyer surprised the Hall H crowd by introducing new never-before-seen footage from The Host, another film adaptation from a book she authored.

‘The Host’ footage via Movie Hole, read what was shown:
The “Host” footage opens with the heroine (Saorise Ronan) awakening, realizing that she’s ‘different’. For starters, Her eyes are of an inhuman colorization, if you will. She’s in a secret facility, where she quickly learns she’s been taken over by some sort of alien being. Diane Kruger’s character provides some exposition, explaining to the young woman -and audience – that most of humanity has been taken over by this alien presence and that the reason she’s in the facility is because she’s a human resistance fighter and they need to somehow extract her memories.
We next see a series of flashback sequences (the camera blurred to recognize the difference between the past and present, much like they do on TV series when presenting the backstory of a character or chronicling a past situation) where Ronan’s character explains that she ‘was’ Melanie Stryder, resistance fighter, who escaped the earliest attacks on Earth. Her father, on the other hand, did not – he took his own life rather than have his body invaded by an alien life-force.
The alien in Melanie’s body informs her that she also has a brother. Melanie isn’t happy about the discovery, fearing her own memories are now being used to help the extra terrestrials that have taken over her body – and the populace.
A later scene shows Melanie, her brother and Max Iron’s character on the run. Soon enough, a scene of Melanie and Iron’s character having a smooch up against a trailer.
In another scene, Melanie is being held captive in a cave in the mountains. William Hurt, playing some sort of gung-ho cowboy, comes in and shoots her captors – presumably wanting to kill her because of the alien that lies within.
The last scene shown was one where humans, caravaning and the like, are on the run down the freeway. A Helicopter – covered in mirrors – hovers above, followed by a series of similar-looking automobiles. One couple decide to crash into a wall, rather than be taken hostage by the authorities.
