Since we know you’re hungry for more Twilight highlights from today’s panel and Q&A, we’ve assembled a few of the more choice moments for you to dig on. Or not. Whatever your bag is is fine by us.

On whether the Breaking Dawn films will be the last we see of the “Twilight” universe on the big-screen: “Who knows?“, said Greene. “I mean, the fans are certainly passionate, so there’s I guess definitely an opportunity for it, but as far as we know, we’re finished.

On shooting the two “Breaking Dawn” films back-to-back: “I kept [track of which part we were shooting] in terms of ‘which uncomfortable shoes am I wearing today?’” joked Reaser.

On his favorite line to act from the series so far: “Hmm…I don’t know, in ‘Eclipse’ I didn’t say a lot,” said Booboo, shifting uncomfortably.

On the hugely-anticipated wedding scene: “It was so beautiful,” said Reaser. “I mean it really looks like a dream wedding. I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything about it. I want to tell you how amazing it was, but I can’t.” Oh, darn.

On the bat-shit insane Twilight fans who have been camping out in front of the Convention Center since Monday: “I have a really large amount of respect for our fans,” lied Greene. “It’s kind of amazing that they found something that they’re so passionate about, and that it happens to be something that we put our heart and soul into.

On the new types of vampires we can expect in the Breaking Dawn films: “There were all these international vampires all of a sudden,” said Reaser. “Very sexy, like all these different sexy vampires walking around…very S&M inspired. There’s a lot of great new characters.

On working with Maggie Grace: “What was Maggie’s last name?” Booboo asked his co-stars of the actress. “Maggie Grace, yeah, she was cool.

On being hit on by pedophiles: “I remember one time I was…taking pictures, and there was a lady – she was probably around 40 or so – and after the picture she turned around and asked me if I wanted to make out,” recounted Booboo, who is 17 years old.

On filming in Brazil: “It’s nice, it’s different. I don’t know if its ‘love’, necessarily,” said Pattinson, acting as if he’d just done a couple lines backstage before the press conference (I have no idea if that’s true or not, but I’m just gonna go with it). “Shooting in Brazil…one of the interesting things about having an international fanbase [is] every single country has a totally different reaction to you and the movie…in Brazil [fans] would literally just go up and try and grab you!”

On if this is truly the end of the franchise, second try: “I think [author Stephanie Meyer] always says it’s the end of the Bella/Edward story,” said Condon. “But especially in the second [‘Breaking Dawn’] movie there are so many new characters that I…suspect she’ll want to revisit it.”

On filming the highly-secretive wedding scene: “It was like Secret Service style, insane…I mean, the crew was completely inconvenienced, and grumbling around the set like, ‘I can’t have [my] cell phone!” said Stewart.

On the vampire-birth scene: “I think the birth scene is kind of…for a fantasy series that has kind of a [young] audience, it goes quite far.

On Lautner’s dance prowess: “Taylor can dance,” said Stewart, to Lautner’s embarrassment. “He can move his hips better than I [could] ever dream [of doing].

On his hardest scene to act: “There was an ‘x’ on a wall and I had to walk into the room on the verge of killing this baby and then stop, twist [around] and imprint on it, whatever that means,” said Lautner. “I spent a lot of time talking to Bill and to Stephanie and just being like, ‘what exactly does imprinting even look like?

On the strangest scene to film: “We had an animatronic baby for one bit, where [Bella] had to be introduced to the [vampire] baby for the first time,” said Pattinson, who compared the doll to Chucky from Child’s Play.

Part 1 of Breaking Dawn is slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011. Part 2 will follow a year later on November 16, 2012.

  • Jacob is getting a medical blood packet from Carlisle Cullen. It won’t be enough, so Carlisle has to get more. Jacob warns him that Sam will kill them. Carlisle and Esme say it’s worth the risk, Bella is family now. Jacob says he can see that; “This really is a family, as strong as the one I was born into.”

    Cut to Jacob, with Leah and Seth, in the woods. He’s confronted by Paul and other hostile werewolves. Paul: “This isn’t your territory any more!” Jacob demands that Sam take back Leah and Seth into the clan. Adds: “Tell Sam that when the moment comes, I’ll be the one to destroy it. I’m the only one who can. They trust me.”

    End of clip.

  • New clip: the honeymoon.

    Edward carries Bella over the threshold through a rotating glass door. She actually looks slightly tan, and is barefoot. Edward: “I’m nothing if not traditional.”

    She sees the four-poster bed, and is clearly excited. He brings in the luggage, kinda embarrassed-looking.

    Edward: “You tired?”
    She shakes head.
    “You wanna go for a swim?”
    She nods. “I could use a few human minutes.”
    “Don’t take too long, Mrs. Cullen.”

    He goes outside to the water and takes his shirt off [Con crowd goes wild]

    She goes into the bathroom, and a pop song comes on as she brushes her teeth, hair, shaves legs, picks out underwear, looks all tense. Then she says, to herself, “Don’t be a coward.” She runs outside in just a towel, drops it (seen from behind; sorry, boys!) and goes in the water, where Edward’s bare back awaits.

    End clip.

    In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world.

    After their wedding Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.

    But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.
