No doubt about it, New Moon is the talk of this year’s Comic-Con and, while most of the attention has been focused on Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, they’re not the only ones promoting the Twilight sequel.

Twilight dad Peter Facinelli, accompanied by castmates Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz, sat down with Wired magazine to discuss the more technical aspects of filming the vampire saga.

Such as the vampire makeup, which, in Twilight, employed a “weird, Japanese airbrush system” where “if someone touches you, you get a shock.”

Yowch! Good thing they changed the formula for New Moon.

But special effects aside, Facinelli believes that the true appeal of the Twilight saga is its “timeless” theme.

“It’s Romeo and Juliet set in the vampire world,” Facinelli opines.

Sounds like a reasonable assessment to us. Check out the video below:
