‘Entertainment Weekly’ Magazine Gives Us Our First Look At The NEW ‘Twilight’ Family Of Vampires


Back in March we got our first look at actress Kristen Stewart in character as vampire Bella Swan in the upcoming sequel film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. A week later, we got to see vampire Bella in action in a teaser trailer for the film. Today we get to see Bella with her vampire family on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. Husband and father Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) and daughter Renesmee (played by Mackenzie Foy) join Bella on the cover and in the pages of EW mag. Get a sneak peek below.

t’s the beginning of the end. When The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 hits theaters on November 16th, it will mark final installment in the blockbuster franchise. But that’s not to say it won’t pack a bunch of surprises—and several new characters. Chief among them is Renesmee, the half-human, half-vampire baby of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), who is played by Mackenzie Foy, 11. “It’s a hugely important part,” says director Bill Condon, who loved watching Foy and her older costars interact. “They were amazing with her,” he says. “It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective. I’d have to interrupt them when they were in deep conversation to get going with a scene.” It helped that Stewart began her own acting career as a child, in movies such as The Safety of Objects and Panic Room. “I loved chatting with Mackenzie,” she says. “I’m always curious about what’s going on in the minds of kids on set. She’s really close to the age I was when I started.” But Pattinson points out that having an impressionable youth on the set curbed certain cast members’ predilection for raucousness. “We’re all around the same age and we’re really not polite to each other anymore,” he says. “You’d have to tone it down when Mackenzie was around.” Or at least attempt to. “She had a little swear jar, and I think she made 850 bucks or something.” And having an actress like Foy, who (rather spookily) resembles both Stewart and Pattinson, didn’t hurt either. “Even our hands look similar,” Stewart says. “It was kind of strange. But it’s funny how it actually helps. It’s like, ‘Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!’”

The end is nigh, thank goodness, and soon the entire Twilight saga will come to an end … well, at least for now (we cannot rule out the possibility that Stephenie Meyer might jump at the chance to revive the franchise in some way). This feature in Entertainment Weekly magazine reminds us that there is still the big finale to come. To be honest, I’m quite over the entire Twilight franchise but I can appreciate that many loyal fans are excited/a bit sad about the release of the final film. I cannot take seriously this forthcoming final film (trust me, I read the book and I had a hard time swallowing even that) but it sounds like they are going out with a bang. Whether you like the franchise or not you cannot deny that Twilight has had a HUGE impact on pop culture. This November, it all comes to a head … and to a final end. Are you ready? Excited? Dreading the final film? Like it or not, it’s coming.

    Oy. The final book was atrocious. Just terrible. Especially the big “battle” in which absolutely nothing happens!

    • @Meghan — Yeah, I totally agree. Meyer is just a terrible writer.

    • Meghan

      I don’t even understand how the publishing house let her get away with the second act of that book. The whole book was a mess, but the second act was just nonsensical.

    • Katie

      I totally agree. Horrible!

    • Megan

      ‘Especially the big “battle” in which absolutely nothing happens!’ My thoughts exactly! My feeling at the end of that book was…’THAT’S IT?!’ As well as the usual…’well that was some of the worst writing I have ever read’.

  • beth

    I LOOOOOVE it. love love love. its so bad its awesome!!

  • Jackie

    Didn’t see part 1. Won’t be seeing part 2 either. I decided to end my torture with Eclipse. I don’t care how attractive the actors are, I can’t put myself through 2 hours of crap. :)

    • Brittany

      AMEN JACKIE!!! I read the books and don’t know why. I watched the movies and don’t know why. The books were terrible but the movies were even worse. I just laughed and laughed and laughed (even during the serious parts) because the acting was so absolutely awful! Good to watch if you want something to make fun of!

    • Brittany

      PS- How the hell did any of these “actors” get any other work? I mean seriously. IMHO, K-Stew is a generic actress at best and she is painful to watch on screen.

  • megan

    I really like the photos though, could be a family. Super cute little girl.

  • nicole

    i like kristens hair. looks good.
    im kind of surprised they’re already showing the child, i figured they’d have her hidden until the day the movie came out

  • jen g

    Yes, the book was atrocious, the first part of the movie just as bad, but I am SO looking forward to seeing this crap masterpiece, if only to laugh the whole way through.

  • Jacqui

    I hope its awfulsome.

  • Ama

    I have been ready for the whole twilight business to end after the first movie came out and after reading the third and unfortunately fourth book.

    I’ll admit, I liked the first twilight book at first, but they got worse after that one and by the fourth it was just terrible. Then I realized how bad the first one was after trying to re-call things from it and finding that I couldn’t remember anything. Then coming to realize that the main characters weren’t completed characters, they were undeveloped. Only having a face and a name but no real character. I only watched the first movie and have had no desire to see any of the others, I don’t think this one will be any different.

    I will say though that after reading the books and seeing their fame it did give me some motivation to work on my own story(where the characters and plot have just been ‘developing’ in my mind for the past six years XD) Because it seems like even terrible stories can get published! So that means my story at least has a chance of being published, right?

    I’ve noticed though that most people tend to prefer badly written, no point plot stories then stories with thought out plots and developed characters and decent/good writing. Seems to be the same with movies too.

  • Alicia

    It’s creepy how that girl really looks like she could be their child.

    Breaking Dawn is such a bad book I need to see how they translate it to screen. I mean really, the movie CAN’T be worse then the book, and if it’s possible, I need to see how.

  • Ella

    Wasn’t a fan from the beginning. Never bothered wasting my time reading the books because it was obviously geared towards a generation of teenagers who can barely read, can’t spell, and love things that suck.
    I gave two of the movies a shot to see what all the continued fuss was about and I still don’t get it. Mediocre film, crappy “acting.” The only thing I was impressed by was how they managed to make Kristen look so ill and gaunt during her pregnancy.

    • Firegalz

      i absolutely and totally agree that the book is meant for i wouldn’t even say teenagers. i’d say kids around 8-10 yrs old in previous generations who would fall for that crap and said the book is good. i couldn’t go thru the first page and have absolutely NO idea how they’d say the movie is good.

      I agree the actors are hot but no real acting skills whatsoever. Only good looks and muscle on parade i’d say. I’d watch Harry Potter a hundred times than to watch a twilight movie. lol

  • Alys

    I will never be a fan of the Twilight series or the movies for many reasons summed up best in Reasoning With Vampires.tumblr.com and Kristen Stewart’s horrendous monotone acting. But she’s a pretty girl when they polish her up, and Mackenzie Foy is /adorable/. I want to take her to tea, then promptly start discussing topics of interest.

  • Sarah

    I really love the photo spread. I agree, she looks like the real love child of Kristen and Rob! This is one movie where I honestly don’t care how the movie goes. Yes, I’m a loyal fan, but c’mon Twihards, the final book just blows.

  • bababa

    don’t hate on Twilight! without it, we wouldn’t have Christian Grey! oh come and whip me you badass!

    but they do look absolutely pretty in the photos! seeing Rob makes me wet in my panties again oy!

    • ……………….wow.

    • Katie

      This only makes me hate Twilight more…

  • Stephie

    I don’t know how K-Stew can say that girl looks like her… the girl is MUCH better looking!!
