That time of year is here again when a new installment of the Twilight Saga is on its way to theatres. This time we are gearing up for Breaking Dawn Part 1. With all the excitement and hype about the movie we are really being dialed into the long awaited Cullen wedding between two of the main characters, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson).
This wedding has been the talk of news outlets and media for months now — including what the dress is going to look like, and what kind of action we are going to see in the days leading up to the joyous occasion. The wedding has been very secretive from the very beginning.
While filming the crew even went so far as to, as Kristen puts in an interview with ClevverTv “tackle” her after they called cut in every take with a giant covering so that the dress was kept a secret until the premiere.
The wedding itself is filled with a lush arrangement of flowers and beautiful lighting as we see in the newly released trailers, and all of the supporting actors and actresses surrounding the happy couple such as Bella’s parents (Billy Burke and Sarah Clarke). The wedding is the opening of the film and has been long anticipated by the fans from the very beginning of the saga a few years ago as the real turning point of the series.
In previous films Edward’s stipulations for turning Bella was marriage, and now that she has given in to his request, the audience is on the edge of their seats wondering what is going to happen next. Now, if you’ve read the books you already know, but it’s hard to say what will actually happen in the films.
After the wedding we do know, however, that there is going to be a sexy, love-filled honeymoon, with a bit of a twist. Bella becomes pregnant. The hardest scene, Stewart says, was the birthing scene. She loved it, but things got a bit strange at some point or another. She states: “I really took to it.
My favorite thing to play in this was that feral sort of mother,” she explained. “None of it was really as strange as you think it would be. I guess it got strange when things were incredibly unreal, like when we had a fake baby. The real babies were amazing to work with, but suddenly you pick up this goopy, hairy doll, and it just doesn’t really work.”
Pattinson agreed with the strangeness of the scene and adds his not so pleasant experience: “I mean, it’s a little bit difficult to get more surreal than chewing through a placenta.”
The director and cast have given us plenty to look forward to as well after confessing that there was a real transformation in the characters in the film. In an interview, Actor Taylor Lautner explains his feeling about whether or not he looked forward to finally being finished with the filming of the series.
He says: “It’s more so no, I’m not excited to be done. We have a lot fun making these movies together. We all get along great, and we’re like a family by this point, so it’s tough,” he explained. “But yes at the same time, because we get to go off and do other things as actors, and this has been an incredible platform for us.”
This was reflected in all of the actors and actresses on board since the completion of Part 2 that is not due to come to theatres for some time yet. Now that they are all free from twilight they can go on to new projects. Who knows, maybe they will be part of the next phenomenon in film.
