New Moon will be filming in Vancouver!

According to Lana Veenker's casting blog, which I found via Bella and Edward, New Moon is likely moving its March 2009 production from rainy Oregon to Vancouver, Canada.

Now, I'm not that much of a TwiCrack addict that I really pay that much attention to where Twilight is being filmed. Nor do I have any desire to become one of those uber-fans who travels from across the country to visit the set everyday and posts their photos on the Twilight Moms' forums. (Note: I admittedly do love those photos, especially this one -- keep 'em coming, ladies!)

However, it just so happens that I married a Canadian and I will be in Vancouver at the beginning of April since we rescheduled our holiday plans to visit my in-laws during the Spring instead. Hmm...this is a very tempting opportunity, but poses some problems. 1) I have no clue how to find the set, 2) I have no legitimate reason to go, other than I'm a teenager trapped in the body of a grown woman, which doesn't really fly. I wonder what sort of excuse I can conjure up to get my husband to drive me to the set, without sounding cuckoo or getting life-long grief for it. Any suggestions to convince my husband to take me to the New Moon set? I won't have a car there, so it will be as if I was back in high-school. hehe.

In honor of New Moon, here is a cool fan-made New Moon trailer featuring Steven Strait as Jacob from tiffanyd666:

  1. Just so you know! I too am a huge fan that feels a bid ridiculous that I too am so in love with these books and the movie. I am a 31 year old mother of 3. I think people would think I was crazy if they knew how many times I went to see the movie! It must have brought the teenager back out in me! HAHA!

  2. Hi melissa! It's nice to hear from you, and thanks for your comment. :) Ditto, ditto, ditto. I don't even want to tell my friends that I have this blog, because they'll think I'm on (Twi)crack. hehe.

  4. I live in Richmond, which is near Vancouver, and I've been totally psyched about this. I've already planned to go there in March, 'cept I have no idea where it is in Vancouver. ):
    The place is pretty big, too.

  5. omg Im 28 and married and SO twilight obssessed that its not even funny! Im pretty sure my husband (*cough, everyone) is sick of hearing how amazing I think Rob is. (The person, not Edward the character). Anyhow, I live in Vancouver and am desperate to know if theres any word on him doing any music gigs downtown or anything. Also im pretty sure if we could figure out where an when theyre filming id hit that up too!

I'm a 34yr old mother of two teenages...My daughter and I were thinking of traveling to Vancover to see them on set as well..but have no clue as to where or exactly when in April they are filming..I want to make arrangements to visit Vancover..but only have a week to spare..If ANYONE knows where they are filming in Vancover..please let us know!! We will be flying and will have no car :( I guess we will be busing it around or walking.. Anyone else that is going to be visiting there in April, please let us know..maybe we all could meet up??

  9. Wow, I just found out New Moon is filming in Vancouver and immediately started Google searching. Found this post. I will be travelling to the Vancouver area sometime soon for work and would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to do some Twilight cast spotting with a fellow fan. I've never been to Canada and know nothing about the area. I'm a 30 year old female - not crazy (except of course when it comes to Twilight). If you're interested in meeting up please let me know! sarahhodges78@gmail.com

  15. ok im going to admit it. i have no reason to go to vancouver other than to see robert & the cast. mainly robert haha. i just want a quick glimpse haha itll help me get over my whole edward obsession. oh i cant even tell u the numerous stories about how edward has caused issues in my marriage haha it would be great if a bunch of us twicrack addicts got together and went at the same time. so if anyone is going there in the next few months let me know! im more than willing to bar hop to hopefully see the cast haha

  16. Stanley Park is downtown and Van tech secondary is in east vancouver. If you want to see the cast the best bet is to stay downtown and then bus or drive to van tech during the day. The cast is supposed to be staying downtown so if you stay down there and go to bars at night you may be able to see them. If you stay in east van you may only see them while shooting probably not wandering around like you could if you stayed downtown

    ReplyDelete
  17. Alm do you know where in east van they are filming!? exactly?

    ReplyDelete
  18. We are driving up from Tacoma tomorrow.

    My son's father is Canadian so he will visit while my friend and I try to find whoever we can.

    Although to be truthful we would probably be there no matter what =)

    We don't know the area so if anybody is in the neighborhood tomorrow, we would love to meet up with other fans....

    We have some info on where to go, but we are hoping we don't get lost.

    Feel free to email me doodle7995 at hotmail dot com

  19. If they are filming at van tech secondary like hush said then it's 2600 E broadway. But I don't actually know if they are filming there. I would also drive around Stanley Park just to see if they are there ( I don't know if they are). But go drive down by the school and Stanley Park and see if you can see there dressing room trailers and walk around I guess. Stanley Park is downtown by the way on the north-west waterfront. I don't know if you will be able to see them filming, because I don't think they start for another week or two. Make sure you let us know if you do find there filming location!

  20. I live in Vancouver and would love to know if anyone actually finds the set. My e-mail is alm.23@live.com

  21. They starting filming on March 11th. They are scheduled to film all over Vancouver. Supposely Van tech secondary school is being used for forks high. Also Stanley park is supposed to be used. Supposedly they might be using the indian reservation out in Tsawwassen as well. Yesterday they were filming close to Granville island, there were film trucks everywhere and you couldn't even get near the set. Crazy twilight madness lol! They are supposedly filming New moon and then straight into Eclipse. SOme of the filming will however have to be in Oregon as both the Cullen and Swan house were in Oregon for the first movie. This is all I know:)

  22. i think they will start filming for the school scene within this week because it's spring break. I haven't really heard anything at vantech lately but I went to kits secondary and I saw some lightings and some orange cones. I asked one crew and he said theyre preparing to film a horror movie based on a japanese book. I asked for a title and researched it but nothing came up so it is most likely new moon. I think they will use kits secondary for outdoor shot as it is woodsy and maybe van tech secondary for the indoor shot. Im just guessing. I will let you guys know if something comes up. Ow btw cullengirl do you know if they are still on granville island? thanks!

  23. Hi Ladies!
    Ok so Im 17 and a SUPERFAN.
    I live in Louisiana and am working my butt off making 7 dollars an hour to try and make enough money to go to Vancouver! If I could even get a small glimpse of the set, it would be well worth the money, I dont even have to see the actors(even though it would be incredible!) So if you have ANY information PLEASE email me at laurenleblanc@live.com Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Also, I have no idea where ANYTHING is in Vancouver, so could everyone please help me out. This is the biggest dream I've ever had and there will be a hole in my heart if I never get to see any of this from behind the scenes!

  25. Ok so I live in Vancouver and I am superr desperate to meet Robert :( it's really sad.. I keep thinking I saw him, but it turns out not to be him. If someone could please, please, please let me know if they spot him! or Kellen Lutz let me know!!! xxvy_gohxx@hotmail.com thanks ladies!!

  26. Lauren: While I think that is awesome that you are coming to Vancouver for a trip, I would be worried that you are getting your hopes up! Like many of these other women, they are keeping the filming of this completely hush hush. I would suggest that you scrap trying to find the filming location because even if you find something, they will A. lie and tell you it's a different film and B. The roads will be so blocked off that you won't be able to get near them. I would however suggest you hang around Robson street downtown which is the busiest shopping street (and some people have seen them around there) and also around Yaletown which is downtown but they have the best clubs and restaurants there. I saw them filming what I thought was New Moon on 4th Ave the other day and of course they told me it was something different (A thiller named Malachai which doesn't exist) I was kind of disappointed because I too really wanted to meet the cast. Good luck and I hope you get to see them!

  27. hey ladies!!! i'm taking the bus for vancouver in a week (from calgary) will find some crappy hostel to live in and will be getting around over there i'm kind of looking for other ones so i don't actually look desperate to see famous people in vancouver (since i am what difference does it make really!!!) but if you are interested in joining the club that be cool so we could get out at night and i wouldn't be completely alone... my boyfriend said it was a no MANs land and in the end i do think it is. he would be bored to death running after edward with me !!!! well please email me at nathalie_gagn@hotmail.com you know its so worth it!!!! and hostels are cheap!

  28. to the 17 year old girl working to come to vancouver...probably not the best idea :( i'm not trying to be a killjoy but i live here and the chances of seeing him are still pretty slim. Vancouver's a big city and you wouldn't even be able to get into bars to see him (apparently thats where they go, i have no idea)
    hes really good looking and talented, sure, but its just not worth all that money. im 17 and i know he's a hottie, but still, maybe think if it really would be worth it to just see him.

  29. Omg, i live on saltspring island near vancouver, and theyre filming a scene here! woot woot !

  30. I'm an old lady myself and would totally travel to Vancouver and simply stalk Robert Pattinson. Hehe...I have no shame. Alas...it is not an option for me being trapped in Flint, Michigan where there is no money to be made for such adventures. So...I say stalk away.....a little grief from your husband is well worth it. =) Even a LOT of grief. People think I'm a nutjob too...but I don't let that get me down. Good luck!!

  31. just thought you'd want to know that they are currently filming on west 16th street and canarvan street by the park near the ubc campus for the last couple of nights. if you are driving along wets 16th towards the ubc campus (west), you'll see it to your left side. i do believe they are there for a couple more nights. you can't miss it, tons of trailers. if you're driving and you hit blanca street, you've gone too far and they're gone. good luck!

  32. oh ya, and the way to get to the set is that when you drive by you'll see a police cruiser blocking the driveway. park down the road (east) and then when you walk onto the fields (its a park with a running track) head into the forest and then follow the lights. the forest isn't too hard to walk through, and you can sneak by undetected by the cops since its a pretty big park and they are just stopping cars that are trying to drive in and not pedestrians.

  33. I'm going to Vancouver Monday for my son's Children's Hospital appointment, do you know if they will still be filming near UBC on the 6th? That would be the highlight of this trip for me - seeing the filming :)
    Of if anyone knows where they will be Monday if not near UBC let me know - thanks Amber dazzle27@hotmail.com

  34. I'm so glad I came across this site. I too am an older lady!! Thought I was crazy to be so infatuated with the books and movie. I feel like i'm 15 and boy has it been a long time. I have been listening to Pattison Online music for a week now. Love Rob's music and voice so raw and blues gifted. I don't think he realizes how unique and talented he is. I'm not a person that would travel to a movie production, although the whole movie making process is cool as hell. I love Carlisle (Peter) too. I think I need help in getting a life. Hee Hee.

  35. this is hilarious! I love it because I was feeling pretty sheepish myself! I am completely besotted with Edward's character and with the Twilight stories and I am a married 28 yr old Canadian, expecting my first baby this June! I live in Scotland with my Scottish husband - i have to say he does have a wee bit of a resemblance to Robert Pattinson. British men ladies are the way to go!! lol. I hope some of you actually find the filming of New Moon. I so wish I was there right now! The funny thing is my 43 year old colleague was asking me what I was reading right now and I "ahem" muttered Twilight under my breath. Her eyes got big and she said "oh, my God - so am I!" It was a bit random being as we are here in Scotland where the books aren't quite as well known as North America but there you go. The story bites everywhere... Every true romantic doesn't stand a chance...x

  36. Hey ladies, don't feel bad...if you are female, no matter what age, it's just natural to be attracted to Robert Pattinson. I have been in love with Johnny Depp and Julian Mcmahon forever, but Rob blows them away! I truly think he is the most beautiful creature on the planet! I am 34 and single...and very happy about that right now! Although I am probably too old for him, unless he likes em a little older like Ashton? LOL If anyone wants to actually travel to Vancouver, let me know. I live in Buffalo, NY and am DYING to go there! And Heidi, you are right, I don't think Rob knows how talented he is. I read he is insecure about his looks, but who knows if you can believe magazines? Where are you listening to his music? I would love to hear what else he sings other than what's on the soundtrack? Robert Pattinson really has it all, amazing looks, an EXTREMELY talented actor and an incredible singing voice. He must have had some amazing speech lessons because he covers up his English accent remarkably well! If anyone wants to plan a trip to Vancouver with me, email me at Meljoy444@aol.com. I work from home and can go anytime. Also, if you have any details about where and when they are shooting, please email me too.

  37. im from vancouver and i haven't watched them doing the shooting. does anybody know if the casts are still in here?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Happy Easter everyone!!
    Melanie you can google robert Pattinson music. The site I've been on is Pattinson Online music archive. They have a few songs that you can listen to and ask questions and look at whole variety of stuff. You can even contact Rob via two addy'd one in london and the other in the U.S. If requesting autographs and such. Would love to go to a movie set to see the filming, but have to responsible and save my $$ for things like living!!! I too am single, have a great job, but times are still tough. I see you live in Buffalo, I used to live there a long time ago for a short time. Don't miss so much snow. Good luck with the music.

  40. I am 31 married and have one child. Glad that I found this site as well. Everyone seems to think I am nuts too. As many you have described it right I feel like a teenager as well and am not able to think straight after reading the twilight series and watching the movie. I have a great husband he is ok with me going to vancouver with a friend of ours. I just asked him if he wants to go with me and after he denied I just took the risk and asked him if he would mind if I go with a mutual friend. Does anyone know if they are still filming there?
    you can e-mail me p966@yahoo.com

  41. Does anyone know if they are still filming in Vancouver? My friend & I are trying to decide if we should make the trip out there? Thanks!

  45. I think I'm the oldest fan of Rob's so far. I became 55yrs old on May 1st. I'm totally engrossed in the books and the movie. There is a timeless quality to Robert that any age female would find attractive. I'd totally become a stalker, if given the chance. LOL!!!He makes me feel young again, and I like the feeling.
