After an exhaustingly long flight from Hawaii, and a long day signing autographs, taking pictures, and speaking at the question and answer panel at TwiCon 2009, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Nurse Jackie star Peter Facinelli was so kind as to speak about The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, whose rehearsals begin tomorrow, he says.

AB: Rehearsals start in about a week, is that right?

PF: Tuesday.

AB: And are you looking forward to it?

PF: Oh yeah, I re-read Eclipse on my Hawaiian vacation, and then I read the script right after.

AB: How is it?

PF: It’s great. You know, it’s hard to cram a whole book into a movie and some of the details get lost in areas and in some areas they get heightened. The story’s the same, and I’m happy with it.

AB: What was your favorite part of Eclipse?

PF: I actually like that, in the book, a lot of the  family  members are talked about, and in the movie they’re in it a lot more. The books are all told from Bella’s perspective, so a lot of times, when she’s not in the scene and things are happening, you don’t actually get to see them, like the battle scene, for instance. In Eclipse when the whole family and the werewolves are fighting the newborn vampires, it’s talked about and through Edward you kind of get something, but in the movie you actually get to see it, you know, so I like that in the interpretations of the movies, it’s not always about Bella’s perspective. She isn’t always in the scene, and so that opens up the story a little bit. The Cullens are in it a lot more throughout.

I am surprised that they’ve heard nothing about Breaking Dawn. I’m sure they will know more soon.

What do you think of what Peter had to say about New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn? Any new info that you didn’t know before?
