‘Twilight’ Star Kristen Stewart Has Pitched The Idea For Gender Swap In New ‘Twilight Reimagined’
Kristen Stewart has always proved herself a bit offbeat and it didn’t come to us as surprise that the gender swap idea in “Twilight Reimagined,” titled “Life And Death” has come from her only. Although, Kristen Stewart has pitched this idea way back in 2012, Stephenie Meyer has sure did apologize for not writing more on “Twilight.” Read on for more details.
The all new “Twilight Reimagined” has changed the genders of Edward and Bella. According to Meyer, it still is an inter-species love story.
“I’ve always maintained that it would have made no difference if the human were male and the vampire female – it’s still the same story. Gender and species aside, Twilight has always been a story about the magic and obsession and frenzy of first love.” Meyer said.
In her recent interview with The Guardian, the “Twilight” author apologized to fans for not writing anything on “Twilight” and knew that it had been awaited, but the response wouldn’t be normal towards it because of gender swap.
Meyer coyly explains her reason to not write any more on “Twilight” as she was busy with her love-interest. Well, that’s just cute!
Refinery29 noted that Kristen Stewart, who played Bella in the “Twilight” series, had gender swap idea since 2012. In her then interview with Hollywood Stream, Stewart has said, “I think if you were to swap the roles…people would find Edward so courageous. Like, ‘Wow, he just laid it all on the line for her and really trusts himself, and even in the face of the strongest adversity, he doesn’t deny his feelings!’”
The idea took a long time to materialize in the book and be part of “The Twilight Saga” but gender swapped has happened. “Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined” released on 10th Anniversary Edition of “Twilight.”
Wonder what Robert Pattinson who played Edward Cullen in “Twilight,” thinks of this gender swap?
