What Comes After Twilight’s Breaking Dawn?

twilight saga breaking dawn two movies parts 1 2 What Comes After Twilights Breaking Dawn?

The one problem for Summit Entertainment in regards to the life of the Twilight franchise is the lack of source material to rush more films out of. As we all know, it takes them a very short amount of time to make a Twilight movie and while the franchise is hot, they want to take advantage and get as much out there as possible.

For this reason, we saw The Twilight Saga: New Moon release only a year after the first one launched a phenomenon and why we’re getting the third installment, Eclipse less than a year after that. We also know that the the fourth book in the franchise, Breaking Dawn, will be split into two movies to take advantage of the wallets of Twilighters, bringing the movie count to 5 in a 4-year span.

Since the cast, now popular stars, were only contracted for four films, we can assume the studio paid them all a pretty penny to sign for a 5th to allow for two Breaking Dawn pictures – A worthwhile and obvious investment after the box office takes of the first two movies.

What’s the next step though? Author Stephenie Meyer had written a fifth book, a re-telling of the events of the original Twilight from the perspective of Edward but that was released online instead of becoming another best seller. According to Meyer, that was it. No more Twilight books.

But what about the money? There’s still money to be made. More money is good. What does that mean? Spin-offs!

Thanks to news today that Stephenie Meyer has changed her mind on the subject, we now know that she is indeed releasing another novel, although it’s not exactly another sequel. Instead, the next book in the Twilight series will be titled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. It will be a shorter 192-page novella which will focus on the newborn vampire, Bree, and act as supporting material for the third novel/movie, Eclipse.

In this summer’s Eclipse, Bree is played by Canadian actress Jodelle Ferland and with news of this novella coming out about her character, maybe she’ll have more work for Summit in a potential spin-off film after Breaking Dawn? Maybe not, but the material is helping some of the actors of such characters as Riley, Victoria, and Bree with their parts in the movie, directed by David Slade.

With this novella coming out for retail, breaking the mold of the 4-feature franchise, we now can expect that other spinoffs or similar side-stories could come out in the future. Will Summit take advantage and start screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg penning a script for this or other future side-stories?

All money jokes aside, the novella will be released for free online at www.breetanner.com from June 7th until July 5th and one dollar from each book sold in the US from its first printing will be donated to the America Red Cross, an absolutely worthy charity. That’s a very good gesture so no complaints here.

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella is already available for pre-order and it releases June 5th.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse comes out later that month on June 30th. Expect both parts of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn to release in 2011.

  1. They should really make a movie about watching renesme getting older and what happens with her snd jacob. You can’t end a movie like that! Please don’t. It is really bothering me whats going to happen next. Make another one with what happens to everyone please Stephenie:)

    • omg!!!!!!!!!!! i know right i totaly hope they do because im getting sick of watching the other ines sometime

    • Totally agree!!! i wanna know more about the continuation of the story especially about Renesmee and Jacob i wish that they will have a fantastic love story like bella and edward as well:)

    • TOTALLY AGREE!!! wish that Renesmee and Jacob will have a fantastic love story of their own like the one bella and edward have:)

  2. I would like to know what Bella and Edward do with their life. Renesme too. Does Charlie and Sue get married? What does Jacob do with his life? Does Charlie ever find out the truth about Bella? If so, how does he take it? What’s going in with Bella’s mom? There is alot left out there that needs answers to. Another Twilight!!!

    • I agree. There are a lot of questions, which need to be answered. The main one is what happens to Renesmee and Jacob. We need more than Alice’s vision. Love Alice and Jasper, what a great couple they are.

    • I have nothing but questions as well. I want to know what happens now that they have a child? What is going to happen since Jake has imprinted on her? I have questions with no answers. I have become addicted to this “Twilight Saga”, because it shows the kind of love a person could have, and it makes you want to have a love like they have. If only we could have such a love, right? I know I sure would like to have that.

  3. i really want to know what happens next. please stephanie realease another movie. we will all be greatful.
