  • Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) marry and spend their honeymoon on a private island off the coast of Brazil. Two weeks into the honeymoon, Bella realizes that she is pregnant, something that was deemed to be impossible. The pregnancy proceeds quickly, and Bella is forced to return to Forks, Washington, where everyone—except for Bella and Rosalie (Nikki Reed—think it best to terminate the pregnancy because of the safety of the people of Forks as well as the effect that the pregnancy is having on Bella as her body becomes increasingly emaciated, her cheeks sunken, and her skin and hair ashen.

  • Yes. Breaking Dawn is a novel by American author Stephenie Meyer. It is the last in a series of four books, collectively known as the Twilight Saga. In order, the books are Twilight (2005), New Moon (2006), Eclipse (2007), and Breaking Dawn (2008). The first three books have also been made into movies: Twilight (2008) (2008), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) (2009), and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) (2010). The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012) was released in 2012. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was asked this question by MTV, and she replied, "You will see sex, yes!" She also adds, "The relationship [between Pattinson's Edward and Stewart's Bella] does go all the way in the book, so in the movie, it will as well. You are going to see more skin in Breaking Dawn than you did in the other films." And on the topic of a possible R-rating, "I don't know if it has to be R-rated, but it has to be what the book is, which means more skin. ... I will definitely be writing more skin."

  • The three most likely reasons include: 1, they were angry over how everything played out with Cullens and took it out on Bianca (Ali Faulkner); 2, Aro (Michael Sheen) is overly demanding about protocol, evidenced by his statements over the spelling of Carlisle's name and the grammar of the note; and 3, most vampires, especially the Volturi, consider themselves superior to humans and therefore have little to no moral objection over killing one. This scene was meant to be seen in conjunction with a similar scene at the beginning of the movie that failed to make the final cut. In the scene, another secretary delivers Bella and Edward's wedding invitation to Aro and company, which angers them a great deal. In response they take out said anger on the girl and promptly kill her. Bianca certainly would have learned of her death and, therefore, feared for her own life. This is why we see her visually frightened when delivering the note. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes. Early on in the movie, when Bella and Charlie are walking down the aisle together, Stephenie can be seen on the left side of the aisle. She is wearing a red and white print dress and a simple choker necklace. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • When wolf pack leader Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer) learns that Bella is dead because of the baby, he calls together the pack to kill it. Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) also returns to the house, intending to kill Renesmee but, after taking a look at her face, he drops to his knees, knowing that he has imprinted on her. When the pack arrives at the house, there is only Edward, Alice (Ashley Greene), and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) to fight them until Carlisle (Peter Facinelli), Esme (Elizabeth Reaser), and Emmett (Kellan Lutz) arrive to help. Suddenly, Jake leaps from the house and orders everyone to stop. "If you kill her, you kill me," he challenges. The pack backs down, thanks to their most absolute law that says, if a wolf imprints on someone, they cannot hurt her. The next morning, the Cullens wash and groom Bella's lifeless body. In a view inside her, the venom can be seen coursing through her veins, destroying her red corpuscles. The bites on Bella's body slowly heal, her emaciated cheeks fill out, and she regains her healthy appearance. In the final scene, Bella's eyes snap open ...and they're bright red. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Following the major credits, there is a scene where Bianca, the Volturi's human receptionist, delivers a note from Carlisle to Aro, announcing the changing of Bella into a vampire. After Aro admonishes Bianca for misspelling Carlisle's name, he has her forcibly removed from her service. Marcus (Christopher Heyerdahl) makes a comment that, at least, their dispute with the Cullens is ended. "Goodness, no," Aro replies. "Our dispute goes far beyond the fate of a mere human. They have something I want." Edit (Coming Soon)

  • No. While in New Moon we are shown one of Alice's visions that involves Bella running through the forest as a vampire (gold eyes, sparkling skin), in this vision she is wearing a totally different dress than the blue one worn at the time of her actual transformation. While the scene could show up in Part 2, it is more likely an occurrence that will happen at some point in the future or an occurrence that simply does not end up happening at all. Remember that, in Twilight, Edward mentioned that Alice's visions are subjective and are subject to change. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Due to the fact, that some material of the book is not necessarily PG-13-conformable, some of the scenes like Bella's and Edward's night of love as well as Renesmee's birth had to be toned down. This seemed to work out quite well, however, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) still seemed to think of the (actually pretty harmless) sex scene as being too much for a PG-13 rating. As a result, the first version of the movie received an R-rating. Only after a few sequences were cut out, the studio finally got the rating it wished for. An uncensored version does not exist on either DVD or Blu-ray disc. Even the extended cut does not have the uncensored footage, and thus in these scenes, the footage is identical to the PG-13 theatrical version. However, with roughly 7 minutes of new footage all "Twi-Hards" should be pleased. There are eight new scenes, some of them with alternate footage. Also, the extended version has some other alterations (such as cutting out certain sequences) in order to keep up the continuity to later scenes. Edit (Coming Soon)
