Robert Pattinson says he struggled with Twilight fame
"The only Edward Cullen POV I need is Robert Pattinson’s DVD commentary"
Twilight nation, our time has come. The Twilight renaissance is TRULY upon us now. After launching a suspicious countdown on her website last week (April 30), author Stephenie Meyer has just announced that the long-awaited new Twilight book, Midnight Sun, is finally set to be released on August 4th 2020.
Stephenie first began working on Midnight Sun in 2008, but after parts of it were leaked online, she decided to postpone the release indefinitely. The novel will re-tell the original Twilight story we know and love, but from Edward Cullen's point of view.
The synopsis teases "a new and decidedly dark twist" as well as "more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts."
Of course, the news has sent the Twilight fandom into absolute meltdown, with 20-something adults who were just teens when the first novel was released coming out of the woodwork, clutching on to their Team Edward shirts.
And the memes about the whole thing are absolutely out of control...

But the real star of these memes is, of course, Edward Cullen himself... Robert Pattinson. Over the years, Robert has famously shaded the franchise that cemented him as a YA heart-throb. No one seemed to make fun of Twilight more than him, and at one point, he said would “mindlessly hate” it if he were an average moviegoer.
But that was years ago and he's since changed his mind, recognising the films for the iconic cultural phenomenon they actually are.
Thanks to the news of the new novel, fans are now all making the same joke about Robert having to deal with the resurgence of Edward Cullen and the media hype that's about to come.

After 12 long years, the least we deserve is a sarcastic audiobook reading of Midnight Sun from the DVD commentary legend himself.

In conclusion, Edward Cullen returned when we needed him most. Everyone say, "Thank you, Stephenie Meyer."
Edward Cullen literally died in a pandemic, and now he returns while we are in the middle of one. That's iconic. #MidnightSun— allison (@reyeverdeen) May 4, 2020
