Where Will Breaking Dawn Be Split?

Where Will Breaking Dawn Be Split?

Fans who read “Breaking Dawn” will know that the book is divided into three major parts — but with the movie being split into two films, just where will that split be?

USA Today chatted with producer Wyck Godfrey to find out more about the script and just where fans would be left off in the first film.

He shared, “We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth,” and continued, “The story will break from her and follow Jacob (Taylor Lautner) throughout the course of the movie as he struggles with his own dilemma. There is a sense that as Bella and the Cullens [Edward's (Robert Pattinson) makeshift vampire clan] deal with her pregnancy, the world is still turning outside with Jacob.”

TELL JJJ: If you were the screenwriter, where would you cut the book in half?

    it would be acurate they split on a very dramatic ecene where my namesake Bella open her red eyes that looks awesome a think…

  • menna

    That’s pretty much where I think the split should be since the book kinda breaks off from Bella’s to Jacob’s mind.

    Jacob’s part Idc!! so I will cut that patr!

  • Mattie

    This is what I think. Either they should cut it RIGHT as Bella dies and have her take her last breath as a human. OR they should cut it after Edward’s struggle with getting her alive and then they don’t show her, but show the reactions of the Cullens to her waking up. My opinions

    I would cut the movie where Jacob see Reneesme for the first time and he imprints on her. While you hear Bella’s heart faultering in the distance.

  • Sophmcarth

    I agree!
    i think they should split it as Bella gives birth- sort of dramatic scene where Edward is trying to transform Bella before she dies and as Jacob is walking away believing Bella is gone, and right as he sees Reneesme and imprints and then BAM! To be continued…

    even though i don’t agree with the split, however, i would split it the moment her 3 days are up from becoming a vampire after giving birth.

    That sounds like a great idea! Having the scene end right after the birth would be perfect!!!

    I don’t think it should be split. It might be a long book but its not really filled with that much substance. But the way I see it, it should be split when Edward bites her/right before she turns into a vampire just to add a bit of a cliffhanger. With Harry Potter when it ended right when Voldemort stole the Elder Wand from Dumbledore’s tomb, even though I have read the book about 50 times, I was like “OMG HE HAS THE ELDER WAND! WTF ARE THEY GOING TO DO?” so with the right suspense, the movie could be good.

    @Bella: @Bella: I agree!

  • Juan

    Even tho i dont agree with the split, i atleast want to see bella as a vampire idc if it just a glance….

  • Kirsty

    i have been thinking about this since i found out the movie was going to be split. i agree with @bella.

    3 days later she stops burning, (in the mean time jacob imprints on renesmee)
