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.
