Finally! Someone is answering our most burning questions about "The Twilight Saga"'s two-part finale, "Breaking Dawn." Producer Wyck Godfrey recently sat down with USA Today to address fan queries, including where the two films will split, how the honeymoon scene will stick to a PG-13 rating (ooh la la!) and the logistics of the grisly birthing scene.
We've long suspected "Breaking Dawn: Part 1"'s closing moments would revolve around Bella's transformation into a vampire—whether hinting at what was to come or showing an actual bloodsucking glimpse. Well, Wyck has confirmed our suspicions saying, "We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella's journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth." The first film will end right before Bella turns (meaning director Bill Condon might be able use some of our closing scene suggestions!).
But let's be honest, we can quibble and speculate all we want about the films' dividing point, but what we really want to hear about is Bella, Edward and all those feathers. Wyck was quick to emphasize that "Breaking Dawn"'s Isle Esme sex scene will NOT be something worthy of Skinemax. "It does not become soft porn," he said. "It is a legitimate and important part of the movie, romantic and sensual." And really, that's what we've always loved about "Twilight"—the romance. Though we'll admit the "sensual" part is getting us pretty excited, too.
As creative and complex as the honeymoon scene will likely be, it sounds as though even more thought has been put into tastefully portraying the movie's graphic birthing scene, in which Edward literally bites their baby out of Bella's womb. Shudder. Thankfully, the film's masterminds have devised an ingenious solution: It will be seen through Bella's eyes. "She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her," Wyck explained. "We only see what she sees." In my mind, I'm envisioning something similar to Bella's vampire venom-induced hallucinations from "Twilight." Now, if only Robert Pattinson could be the soundtrack to this painful moment!
