twilight saga breaking dawn two movies parts 1 2 Breaking Dawn Gets November 2011 Release Date

Summit Entertainment has officially announced that Breaking Dawn – the concluding entry in the mega-popular Twilight Saga – will be out in theaters on November 18, 2011.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Twilight fans, between confirming that Bill Condon is directing Breaking Dawn, Condon’s Facebook letter to fans of werewolf/vampire/angst-ridden teenager series, and now the announcement of Breaking Dawn‘s release date.

That’s not forgetting the recent release of a new trailer for Eclipse, the third Twilight Saga film – with the movie itself due out in June no less.  To say that fan anticipation for Eclipse – a film which will involve a war between the werewolves and vampires in addition to the theatrics of the Bella/Edward/Jacob love triangle – is as high as ever would be more than a bit of an understatement.

The 'Twilight' trio, looking as peppy as ever.

Oddly enough, the wait between the release of Eclipse and Breaking Dawn – around a year and a half – will be the longest wait Twilight-lovers will have endured between films.  It’s a matter that calls attention to the – rather impressive – fact that the 2008 Twilight movie, last year’s New Moon, and Eclipse have all been released over a period of just over 1 1/2 years.

Admittedly, Breaking Dawn is not only the longest of the Twilight novels,  it is also arguably the most “adult” chapter in the series – in terms of sexual content and graphic material, that is.  Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg – who penned the previous Twilight films – has already assured the public that Breaking Dawn will not receive the dreaded R-rating, which would complicate matters for the many teenage fangirls (and fanboys – they do exist ;-)) eager to see the film in theaters.

Sorry kiddies - this is about as racy as things will get in Breaking Dawn.

Although we’ve previously reported that Breaking Dawn would be broken down into two films – a la Harry Potter and the Death Hallows 3D – we’re only getting a single release date at the moment.  Add to that the fact that Summit Entertainment did not mention anything about the final Twilight film being split in half during their official confirmation of Bill Condon as director, and it forces one to wonder if Summit is still moving forward with their two-film format for Breaking Dawn.

Of course, this issue does raise the question: should Breaking Dawn be broken into two films?  Or can its plot be encapsulated in a single movie, like the other entries in The Twilight Saga?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - either Part 1 or the whole thing – will be out in theaters on November 18, 2011.

  1. Ugh… The quicker this franchise ends, the better.

  2. its crazy to make the fans wait tht long. i think thy should work their hardest to make the fans happier. Me not being the bigger of fans but still likeing the movie, will also be a bit frustrated if i have to wait till 10th grade

  3. I really want to see it but its a really long wait i think they might have another movie come out as an add on because of the other book that come out called “The second life of Bree Tanner” she s a vampire in eclipse.

  4. Breaking dawn be split into two or not, their choice. but i am just hoping they will do it best. not to short cutlike they did with newmoon. may it be in one film but worth even it will run long hours as long as it will be well done like the book itself.thank you.

  5. I hope they make the “Breaking Dawn” into 2 movies. 3+ hours each! The book has plenty to put on a screen for 6 hours and lets face it mo money, mo money, mo money!I,m 41 yrs old and loved the books! Before they knew how great it would be they cut “Twilight” way short! it could have been 2 movies easy! REMAKE! More people would have seen it and went on to follow if they understood more! it was too rushed! And so much was left out! At 41 its hard to find the romance that still gets you without the sex scences in movies! Id pay for 2 tickets! any day! parents would too!

    • i know rite finally some that really loves twlight lik i do GO TEAM JACOB

  6. @twistedburton, you are not right. This movie is diferent from other vampire-movies and definetely import freshness in bad movies novadays…

  7. It’s NOT going to be an R-Rated movie?!
    This movie better not suck. If it’s making us wait another year (counting from now) it better be the most accurate film out of all of them.
    And it should be split in two in my opinion.
    There are to many things going on for it to be squeezed in just one film.

  8. TOO LONG TO WAIT…UGH! This book was by far the best, so I can only imagine how the movie will bring the pages to life!! I can NOT wait! :D

    • Ya i can’t either Amanda team Edward ? or team jacob?

  9. hello im sasha. WOW! braking dawn SO COOL! I mean I read the book it sounds great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Why does it have to be split into two parts. But i guess i will have to deal with it. I’m am so a Edward team. It seems to long of a wait for it to be split. But i am going to be one of the people that goes and watching the first premier at MIDNIGHT Yay can’t wait. Ugg i just want to see what Bella will look when she is changed. And i hate how Youtube always makes trailer videos that aren’t related to breaking dawn. And I really hope that breaking dawn is just like the book cuz Twilight,New Moon and Esclipse were tottally different then the book. I really hope it brings the pages to life. I hope It’s just like the book no big changenges. Because i mean come on there gonna split it up into two parts they mine as well it worth it. I love all you guys that are one Edwards team!!!!! Breaking Dawn here we come….

  11. I hope that they split the movies into 4hurs each but we all no that will not happen:/ I mean there is enough in the book to put on screen baby. Team Edward
