The date has been set folks, on November 16, 2012 Summit will release The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 marking the end of the Twilight theatrical experience that begun four years earlier with Twilight on November 21, 2008.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, the first installment in the two-part finale, hits theaters one year earlier on November 18, 2011, which means fans will be forced to wait a whole year for Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob’s (Taylor Lautner) return. Of course, this also means Summit is ensuring themselves of big funds from 2010 – 2013 as the Twilight franchise quickly became their largest source of income.
Breaking Dawn is based on the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” saga and continues the human-vampire-werewolf love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob. Here’s a bit on the story:
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan (Stewart). Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen (Pattinson), and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black (Lautner), a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life–first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse–seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?
The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
Both parts will be directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls).
So now Twilight fans and haters have something to look forward to. By November 2012 we may have heard the last of Bella Swan.
