About 6000 fans of The Twilight Saga were treated to a surprise look at the first seven minutes of the final film instalment, Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

Many slept overnight for a chance to attend the panel presentation at Comic-Con on Thursday, which featured appearances by the stars of the vampire-romance series. The final film hits Australian theatres in November.

A Twilight fan who had camped out since on Sunday for a chance to attend the panel was killed on Tuesday when she was hit by a car while crossing a street near the San Diego Convention Center.

Comic-Con's head of marketing addressed the fans gathered in the convention hall to say he was shocked at the woman's death and said, "our heartfelt condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to her family".
