'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' panel will take place at Comic-Con

Thanks to The New York Times' newest report on the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, it has now been confirmed that a panel for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 will be featured at the event.

It's been estimated for quite some time that a Breaking Dawn panel would be featured at the show, since both Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon (which also had November release dates) panels were done in previous years (note: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's release date took place prior to last year's event, so there was nonesuch for that film).

With Twilight, the featured panelists for the film were Stephenie Meyer, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Catherine Hardwicke, Rachelle Lefevre, Edi Gathegi, and Cam Gigandet. For New Moon, the featured panels were Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner (videos for both years are attached in the sidebar).

No word yet on which castmembers or filmmakers will appear for the Breaking Dawn - Part 1 pane but Summit has just shared a press release indicating more information:

In addition to Summit’s booth presence at Comic-Con®, the studio will also host one of the first panels of the day in Hall H on Thursday, July 21st dedicated to THE TWILIGHT SAGA franchise. Fans interested in the story’s final chapters will be shown exclusive footage from THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 and be treated to a filmmaker and cast Q&A session providing details on the first half of the epic two part finale, in theatres November 18, 2011.
