The wedding & Isle Esme, Jacob finding out Bella's pregnant & eventually leaving Sam's pack with Seth and Leah, finding out the half-breed is more like Jacob & killing Bella from the inside and finally the birth are the only things I'm seeing as important before she turns. Am I missing really anything of dire consequence, aside from Jacob's imprinting on the half-breed?
I initially thought this could be two movies, but after rereading the a couple times, I don't see how a lot of what happens in the Jacob book is relevant to the Bella and Edward story the series started out as. I didn't care on print whether or not Jacob mated or what he thought of Bella being knocked up or why he split from Sam, and I don't want that translated to the big screen. If you are a team Jacob fan and do care, be my guest, but I'm sick of Bella saying she chooses Edward, marries him and has his baby but still ends up with Jacob, and has a perfect little family.pennybug84 wrote:
Now please JUST SAY NO to doing it in 3D. I know it's a way for the stuidios to charge & make more $$$. But this movie just wouldn't be good in 3D. (Especially the birthing scene. ICK!!!
I think it depends on the scene that they are filming. I mean, assuming that the confrontation with the Volturi isn't as boring as it was in the book with both sides having supercharged vamps and talking (yeah, talk about fantasy right there), it could be interesting.
And considering that this is Summit, I doubt they would have already consider having some scenes shot in 3D.Rae Cullen wrote: Hmm well I think that a two-part movie of BD will be better than one movie because I would really feel bummed out if everything was rushed and things that could be in a two-part movie but not one movie would be cut out. The draw back I don't like is the waiting process after BD part one would come out you know...but oh well we all went from Twilight and have waited for Eclipse and it is almost here!!! Anyway I just want them to end the Twilight Saga the way it should be ended and not just rushed off the screen.
Waiting period? It's not like one will have to wait two years to the next movie like people did with Harry Potter. Order of the Phoenix was released theatrically in 2007 and Half Blood Prince was released 2009.
One of the plus side to a movie, is it's not just Bella and Edwards story in a sense. Over all it is but we get to see a lot more, It's not only her lines in the movie, that is why we can see the stuff going outside of just Bella, we can see the newborns, we can see the wolves chasing victoria, the Cullen chasing her (from the preview). Jacob was a big part of the books though and Bella's story(outside of 1) and it would make sense he is in the movies. I mean we all know Bella ends up with Edward, I would bet anything they don't change that in the movie, trying to act like he doesn't exists or have any bearing in their lives is absurd IMO over some distaste to his character. In fact, if it wasn't for Jacob and his friends, the ending of BD would have probably been much different since Edward said the reason the Volturi initially paused was because of the wolves, just like the fight with the newborns probably would have not left the Cullen family completely intact.
For the record, I am not Team Jacob, I am team Switzerland, I like them both and think they both have pros and cons but I am happy that things ended as they did.
