The stills are pretty straightforward, highlighting the franchise’s three cornerstones in Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, along with other members of the Cullen family. Seeing as this is the final installment of the very successful Twilight franchise, though, fans are most likely clamoring for any sort of video or image that gives them a closer look at their favorite characters.
We do get a good look at Stewart’s Bella, who has, at long last, made the successful transformation into a vampire for the final film. While Stewart’s character was never overly cheerful in any of the previous four films, she’s certainly doing a credible job of capturing the brooding, serious tone taken on by all of the characters featured in the images. She also boasts the ghostly pale skin, along with the fiery eyes that are commonplace for the vampires in the Twilight universe.

As if the film wasn’t already highly anticipated enough as is, the inclusion of Bella as a vampire will only help to ramp up the excitement for Twilight fans. Those fortunate enough to attend the Comic-Con panel got a glimpse of the first seven minutes of the film, which showed Bella utilizing and enjoying her new abilities. Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will see Bella and Edward team up with the other Cullens, along with a host of other vampire clans, to defend their child, Renesmee, from the Volturi, who believe her to be immortal – and a threat to the secrecy of the vampire species.
While the Twilight films certainly haven’t been lauded by critics, they’ve undoubtedly been cash cows, due to the immense popularity of author Stephenie Meyers’ source novels. To date, the franchise has raked in over $2.5 billion at the global box office, and if the financial success of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is any indication (a worldwide gross of over $700,000,000), the concluding chapter should push the global haul to near, or even past, $3.5 billion – all the more reason that Lionsgate is interested in eventual spin-offs or reboots.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Bill Condon, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 also stars Michael Sheen, Kellan Lutz, Dakota Fanning, Maggie Grace, and Peter Facinelli.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 arrives in theaters on November 16.
