It seems like just yesterday we were watching Taylor Lautner rip off his shirt and flex his abs in front of a 30 foot screen. But that was last fall and now The Twilight Saga: New Moon is gearing up to hit DVD shelves. In an announcement made today by Summit Entertainment, the vampires and werewolves are ready for your home entertainment use, and a release date has already been set.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 20, 2010. If you’re one of those people who are fans of collector’s editions or special cuts, you can own a two disc special edition copy of the movie in both traditional and Blu-ray format. When New Moon was in theaters it took in an estimated 300 million dollars domestically, and had the third largest weekend opening of all time with 142 million.

If you’re interested in knowing what type of special features will pop up on the DVDs we’ve got you covered. The press release that was sent out by Summit revealed what each package will entail. Once, again the street release date is March 20th, but there will be pre-sale copies available starting January 26th.

Here are some of the goodies that can be found on the New Moon DVDs


  • Audio Commentary by director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert
  • Six-Part Documentary takes you behind the scenes of the film
  • Rehearsal Footage with Muse, who is featured on the hit soundtrack
  • Three Music Videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina and Mute Math
