Whether you’re on Team Edward or Team Jacob, you’re most definitely on the team to pick up the Twilight Saga: New Moon DVD and Blu-ray in its highly anticipated release March 20.

New Moon

As The Twilight Saga: New Moon on Blu-ray or DVD is released on March 20, fans are creating their very own Twilight parties to be the first to own the sequel starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, Ashley Green, Kellan Lutz, Dakota Fanning, and Michael Sheen.

Participating retailers are staying open for special Friday at midnight festivities that also involve being able to purchase New Moon.

Midnight parties across the country will include raffles, giveaways, autographed merchandise and collectible clothing. For instance, the Borders in Oak Park, Illinois is staying open from 10 pm until 12:30 am for this mega event!

As if it's not going to be full of enough crazed fans, at most locations such as Borders, you'll need to arrive early to first get a wristband. You can only purchase a Twilight DVD if you have a wristband or have reserved a copy for pick-up at your local store.

The mad rush for New Moon DVDs and Blu-rays is for good reason: After Bella recovered from the vampire attack that seriously almost left her DOA, she celebrated her birthday with Edward and his family in Stephenie Meyer's latest chapter. Since blood was shed after a minor incident and the trauma proved too much, Edward jets out of town as Bella finds comfort in -- you guessed it -- Jacob.

Although Bella's still in love with Edward, she realizes she can co-exist with her buddy, Jacob. Although plot twists ensue, chances are the DVD will at least keep Twilight fans occupied until the release of its next film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which will be released at the end of June.
