The final movie of “The Twilight Saga,” which will be released Nov. 16 in America, will be discussed ad nauseam by fans and critics alike. With the movie just two weeks away, a press conference was held to discuss “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”
On Thursday, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, director Bill Condon, series creator Stephanie Meyers and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg were on hand to discuss the last movie in “The Twilight Saga” and what it was like to work on a such a beloved series that has grossed hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide.
Condon, director of the two “Breaking Dawn” movies, could not help but heap praise on his lead actress. Speaking about Stewart, Condon said “I worship at the alter of Kristen Stewart, she has this extraordinary energy,” reports ClevverTV. Meyer was also impressed by Stewart as she played Vamp Bella, as well as Pattinson as a parent according to Hit Fix.
Most importantly for Condon, his task of finishing “The Twilight Saga” was to make it satisfying for fans who have invested so much into the franchise, according to Hit Fix.
Other challenges that Condon faced included showcasing the powers of Bella, played by Stewart, and the vampires. According to Condon, the first hour of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” keeps the same tone as the first movie but then morphs into "an epic action movie with vampires and vampires, at least some of them, have to be funny,” reports Hitfix.
The big battle scene that is the centerpiece of the final “Twilight” movie was Meyers' idea, according to Condon. As for the humor found in the movie, all of that is quite intentional, according to Meyers and Condon.
There may also be a future “Twilight” series, remarks Meyers. "I had planned out where it would go for a couple more books, so I know exactly what would happen," reports Hit Fix.
For the stars, Lautner was worried about how to play Jacob but was told by Meyers to “not overthink” engaging with Renesmee, according to ClevverTV. As for that crazy wig he had to wear? Needless to say Lautner is glad he's done with it.
Finally, the biggest stars of “Twilight,” Stewart and Pattinson, closed out the press conference. Pattinson is overwhelmed by the intense fandom for the “Twilight” series. As for what advice would he give a younger Pattinson, he jokes "Start drinking vodka instead of beer. Try and get a six-pack as early as possible and you'll be a much more successful actor," reports Hit Fix.
Stewart really enjoyed playing Vamp Bella, saying it was "really satisfying and really fun,” reports Hit Fix. She also kept the rings from the movie. Stewart also mentions how Bella's journey was not unlike her own, growing up, having doubts and learning. As for playing a mom? Stewart says “"I can't wait to be a mom... but I can wait.”
Stewart and Pattinson's relationship were not discussed in the press conference but expect plenty of speculation as “Twilight” nears its release date.
