TEMPE, Ariz. -- Fans of the "Twilight" movie series started lining up at 5 a.m. at Harkins at Tempe Marketplace to catch Thursday night's 10 o'clock premiere of the final chapter of the saga "Breaking Dawn Part 2."

The line included Valley moms who love the series as much as their kids.

One mom was holding a place in line for her two daughters, who were in school.

The previous four films have grossed more than $2 billion worldwide. The movie series, based on four books by Cave Creek author Stephenie Meyer, began in 2008 with "Twilight."
