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.

  6. plz carry on………we are waiting the next one……….

  7. There should be Another. Where like it is about Jacob and Rennasmae

  8. I really hope they keep on making more and more books and movies I’m a huge fan I love drama love fighting boys fighting over girls and my two favorite monsters in order are vampires then ware wolves. So obvisley I’m on team Edward!! I have a feeling that they are going to stop though I wish they wouldn’t, I mean think about all the twilight lovers heck, I’m decorating my valentine box this year with twilight things, in my room I have a whiteboard filled with all the most important characters from twilight or at least all the ones I could remember I even got some friends to start liking twilight, they thought it was stupid before they saw the movies.

  9. dont stop the series …..

  10. well, its all pretty obvious that its the end of the ‘saga’ sequel, maybe, just maybe we could’ve another twiligh ‘side-seqeul’ since we heard about ‘the short second life of bree tannes’ …. The problem is that we can’t stay waiting for long waiting because we might lose interest in one of the best movie sequel ‘twilight’ …WE NEED ANOTHER TWILIGHT, e.g harry porter

  11. dont stop the serise

  12. Plz do another Twilight book that turns into a movie i would actually lik to see what happens to Jacob and Renessmae: e.g get married. And does Bella’s dad start to notice she isn’t ageing will she tell her dad. I think i speak on Behalf of Twilight Fans that they want to see what happens next don’t leave it unresolved with no answers they would like to see what happens especially to Jacob and Renessmae. I think they would also like to see if Bella tells her dad or not. Plz do another.

  13. Hey I’m a big twilight fan I’m that big of a fan my daughter I year old now and her name is renesmee please let there be a nother book and a film we would like to no what happen to renesmee and Jacob and the Cullen family please we all won’t more xxx

  14. Please do make another movie…. your movies are so good i cant wait for another one. your movies give me and my husband something else to do together. Its a movie that we sit down and enjoy together!!!!!!!

  15. If you tell someone about these movies, it sound stupied, a vanpire and a wolf in love with a human? But, the movies are absolutely so entertaining, it’s good, I’m so hooked on thie Twilight movies, you can’t stop now, what will do ever do? Keep on going because you get a little tired watching the existing movies after the 99th time.

  16. This movie SUCKS it doesn’t make any sense and its just DUMB

    • i think your close minded if you think that! They are a great set of books, harry potter was the same way its different and everyone fantasizes about living in those types of worlds~!I DO

    • As honest as I could be…i thought twilight was gonna be one of those ridiculous girly movies id hate but really its one of the best movie iv ever seen…in that category at least.
      Im 17 years old with an 18 year old girlfriend AND a baby girl on the way in 1 week. I have the entire colloction and would love to add to it. Twilight is a great movie and I never thought id be into it / however its one movie id love to share with my daughter as she grows up and I think I speak for majority of the world when I say you NEED to wright more. Including that you continue the story as renesmee grows and fall in love with jacob and all the issues between the cullin family and the wolf tribe. Please right more books and make new movies. We love the stories… <<3

  17. This movie SUCKS!!!!!!

  18. Only because they leave the second part off because its the way its supposed to be

    • Please what ever you do, Do not stop the series i’m begging…

  19. I am begging you to keep writing on this series~ Have grown to love the fantasy of it all! I want to see the girl grow up and her relationship with Jacob and if the valtorian will come again, will bree have powers.. Bella and Edward there lives together with out the fear to see the vision Alice had at the end to be apart of the experience…it can keep going from here~ please don’t stop!

  20. Why not make a spin off from 1500 year old Vladimir? It could be a tie into Vlad the impailer, but it might be more gorey than the twilight saga

  21. we need more twilight we are thirsty for more im sure you will all agree we want to know about renesme see whats shes like as she grows and we need one as soon as possible(not to be pushy) but u have fans and they want more jacob and edward ;)
