Alternate Versions

In the UK, the film was originally shown to the resident censors, the BBFC, in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive a '15' classification but that the requested '12A' certificate could be achieved by making changes to the sex scene between Edward and Bella. In particular, the BBFC suggested that more graphic sight of Edward thrusting while he lies on top of Bella, while her legs are wrapped around his torso, be removed. When the finished version of the film was submitted these changes had been made, with the scene having been reduced in length and with less focus on full body shots. As a result, the film was classified '12A'.
Extended cut adds the following 7 minutes of footage:
  • The opening titles are now shown in blue instead of red.


  • Alternate opening: At the Volturi headquarters, Valentina, a human, hands the Edward and Bella's wedding invitation card to Aro. Caius comments that the invitation as the Cullen's style of declaring of Bella's forthcoming "embrace" as a vampire and a way of mocking the Volturi for their delays. While the three leave the room, Aro's servants disposed Valentina along with the pile of dead humans.


  • In the "Bride of Frankenstein" scene, Edwards sits down on his hat and leaves the theater while the audience is frightened at the movie.


  • Esme Island: Edward makes breakfast for Bella. She comments about being hungry and they talk about her upcoming "turning". They kiss again just before the housekeepers arrive on boat.


  • Esme asks Rosalie to prepare some food for Jacob while watching over a sick Bella. Jacob at first declines but Esme insisted Rosalie to do so. She comes back with a hot dog on a dog bowl. Jacob takes a bit and then throws the bowl at Rosalie much to Emmet and Edward's laughter. Unimpressed, Rosalie simply leaves the room.


  • Alice joins Jacob at the balcony saying that standing next to him is like closing her eyes. Jacob could only say that he's glad to help.


  • Because Jacob has imprinted with Renesmee, Edward breaks Jacob's arm and throws him at a wall to keep him away from fighting the other werewolves. He later resets his arm.
