Kristen Stewart "Excited" About New Moon

March 6, 2009 by dino

Kristen Stewart says she’s “excited” about filming Twilight sequel New Moon.

The actress, 18, reprises her role as Bella Swan in the second movie based on the books by author Stephenie Meyer.

And Stewart insists she can’t wait to join costars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner onset.

She says, “Yeah [I'm excited]. I mean, it’s interesting. It’s a completely different story. It’s like it entirely undermines the first. Edward is gone and, for me, that was the whole story. It’s hard for me to get past like… I don’t know how Bella is going to deal with that.

“She matures a lot. It’s a much more painful story than the first one. It’s actually quite devastating. It’s a smaller scale as well. She’s very solitary for quite a while so that will be interesting. I’m excited about that.

“We start filming very soon. In a couple weeks. March 23rd I think is the first official day of shooting.”

New Moon hits theaters later this year.
