“From every city, every stop, every interview we have done, you’ve made this an unbelievable, nearly surreal experience…and so cool that we were all in this together.
“We just heard from Summit that we’ll be moving forward on New Moon. We look forward to sharing this next chapter with you! Kristen & Rob.”
