Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Chris Weitz take questions from the crowd and preview footage in San Diego.
The room of mostly female fans erupted into deafening screams when Lautner and Pattinson entered, with dozens of them yelling, "I love you, Rob!" or "I love you, Taylor!"
As the stars were asked about the filming of the movie, Lautner talked about how important his character's various transformations were to the way he approached the role.
"Jacob goes through a lot in this movie—he transforms mentally and emotionally," Lautner explained. "The most challenging for me was physically, so I had a lot of hard work cut out for me after filming 'Twilight.' I worked really hard to transform Jacob's body so I could portray him correctly for all you guys. And I hope you guys are pleased when you see the results."

The Native actors in New Moon eventually should get a piece of this action. But imagine if a Native actor were getting the same attention as Taylor Lautner. People would be clamoring to know more about Indians because of him.
Anyway, we didn't see the Twilight panel, but we did see the stars up close and personal at a nearby theater. More on that later.
