Summit to release a DVD documentary about Forks, WA - the place where 'Twilight' is

WTF

LOS ANGELES -- Sept. 11, 2009 — Summit Home Entertainment announced today the acquisition of the documentary feature TWILIGHT IN FORKS: THE SAGA OF THE REAL TOWN directed by Jason Brown, a three time Emmy Award winner. Produced by Brown, as well as York Baur and Peter Cowles and their company Heckelsville Media, the feature chronicles for TWILIGHT fans the story behind Forks, Washington, which serves as the primary setting for the popular TWILIGHT books and films. Additionally, the documentary features untold tales of Forks’ unique history, mysticism and culture.

Summit plans to release the film onto DVD in conjunction with the home entertainment debut of the second film in the TWILIGHT franchise – THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, which is set to arrive in stores during the first part of 2010.

Steve Nickerson, Summit’s President of Home Entertainment, stated, “The fans of the TWILIGHT SAGA will enjoy this look into the real town of Forks, its natural beauty and the interesting people that call it home. We are excited to make this incredible documentary available to Twilight fans early next year.”

TWILGHT IN FORKS offers a tantalizing mix of real-world Forks and the fantasy that makes the TWILIGHT saga so irresistible. Fans will get to hear from the real people living their lives in the town, including: the Chief of Police, the Forks Outfitters’ employee who gets mistaken for the franchise’s leading lady Bella, and the vampire transplant who plays the real-life role of Alice. They’ll also visit Forks High School, hear self-described Jacob’s grandfather tell the legend of how the Quileutes descended from wolves, and see many more of the people and places of Forks. "Summit Home Entertainment is the perfect partner for us," said York Baur, Heckelsville Media’s president. "Our goal with this project was to show the unique culture, beauty, and remoteness of the real Forks to the world, and Summit’s distribution of our film will do exactly that."

I'll wait until the Forks, Knives & Spoons box set trilogy comes out. The rumor is a 4th bonus disc on Sporks.

Apparently, there are travel companies that put together tours to this place.
