While speaking about her latest film Austenland which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer touched on the possibilities of a Twilight theme park.
The conversation sprung up because Austenland, as the title suggests, takes place in a Jane Austen theme park after being inspired by Pride & Prejudice. MTV asked what a “Twilightland” would look like.
“I cannot comprehend why you would do that,” Meyer said matter of fact-ly. “How could you create that? It would be so boring. Would you have to go to high school for that? Ugh. Sounds awful. I don’t want to go back to high school.”
Added Meyer, “What would the ride be? We don’t have rides [in the Twilight books or films]. I guess you could have a mechanical vampire that you could ride piggy back. I think that’d be a liability issue though.”
Talk of a Twilight theme park is a legitimate one, given other film franchises getting the ride-and-shop treatment. Harry Potter‘s The Wizarding World at Universal’s Islands of Adventure is the most recent runaway hit, and now there’s talk of a Hobbit and/or Lord of the Rings park being under development by Universal and the Tolkien family.
Austenland, produced by Stephenie Meyer and written by Shannon Hale, is expected to open sometime in 2013.
