Along with the new date for the final part of the two-part series, Netflix also released a teaser featuring Selena in her signature sparkly criss-cross purple pantsuit singing “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” at the Houston Astrodome in Texas, where she performed her last televised concert.

Part 1 of the series, which “explores Selena Quintanillas journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time,” made its Netflix debut on December 4, starring Serratos as singer.

Serratos & Her Fellow Twilight Stars Attend Film’s LA Premiere…

It’s an electrifying night for the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, including Christian Serratos

The 21-year-old part-Mexican actress—who plays Angela Weber, Bella’s best human friend in the blockbuster vampire films—joined her co-stars for the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere in Los Angeles. Serratos looked stunning in a fuschia Alexander McQueen strapless silk chiffon dress.

Thousands of Twihards had been camping out in a virtual tent city since the end of last week to catch a glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Mia Maestro (who sings the first Spanish song to appear on a Twilight soundtrack) and the rest of the stars as they made their way down the black carpet at L.A. Live’s Nokia Theater.

Breaking Dawn Premiere

“I heard about tent city,” Serratos recently told Access Hollywood. “I had no idea that fans were out there already. I know they do it every movie, but for them to be out there already is very cool, very supportive.”

Prior to the film’s premiere, Serratos—who admits to having limited screen time in Breaking Dawn – Part 1—was experiencing a case of Twilight fever herself.

“I’m more excited for this movie than I have been for any of the others,” she said about this latest installment, based on her favorite book in Stephenie Meyers’ “Twilight” series.  “And I’m in it the least!”

So what’s her favorite scene in Breaking Dawn – Part 1? The same one the rest of the world can’t wait to see either: the vow exchange between Edward and Bella.

“It felt like a real wedding,” says Serratos, who studied ballet and competed in ice-skating competition while growing up in California. “It was emotional…especially because they made the wedding the very last scene we all shot together.”

Since she plays Bella’s best human friend, the question must be asked… Team Edward or Team Jacob?

“I used to play it cool and say I was neutral, but [expletive] it — I’m Team Edward!” Serratos told Access Hollywod.

Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens nationwide this Friday, November 18.
