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. To be completely honest I think it’s a nice effect to just stop making flims when they say forever it kind off means forever. I really love twilight I’ve watched every single one at least 10 times. I think theyll Make another when renesmee is older I think. xox

  2. Sup

  3. there should be another twilight renesmes future

  4. You can stop now make one more movie about Bella and Edward die in a war and Jacob raises Renesmee

  5. This story falls into a Love story more then a Vampire story. And i think that is the point… It’s an unorthodoxed, awkward, fantasy type Love story… But a Love story nonetheless… The Vampire part of the story kind of takes a back seat to Edward’s and Bella’s Love. So Love story fans can appreciate this more then a die hard Vampire fan. The story is about Love from beginning to end, and that part was obvious. But the Vampire part of the movie with Vampire rules and treaties with Warewolves and lots of other parts of movie was weird but still kept me interested. Didn’t like how Breaking Dawn 2 ended though. They should have battled… Thought everyone was gonna wipe each other out. And let Jacob raise the kid.. The End… That would have been a better ending. But now i think one more should be made, and that should be the ending of it. Also i think the worst movies ever made are the M. Night Shyamalan movies… Now that is writing and film production at its worst…

  6. I personally think this other sexual she’s making is ridiculous it should be all about Bella and Edward the whole world wants. To know what’s going to happen itch Edward and Bella and renesmee. It does suck how the ending of the saga ended. :( make more twilights lol

  7. I ment sequal dang auto type sorry :(

  8. stephenie will there be another twilight book about Nessie and Jacob because I want to know the full story

  9. will there be a book about Nessie and Jacob and their life, the full story?

  10. also there should be a whole new series added about everyone and the voltori falls in he end. now that would make the perfect ending. don’t u guy think :)

  11. I men the end

  12. Stephenie, I think its fare to make ur readers/watcher happy so please make another saga.

  13. I think that there should be a book about Jasper. In 1 of the films Bella asks how jasper became a vampire. He mentions a vampire called Maria and in the book she changed him Etc. The author put in the book that before Alice saved Jasper he said to Maria we shall meet again. Maybe shehould return. I have loads of ideas that i cant put down because this comment already is long so i dont want to make it really long. But yea.

  14. The Twilight Saga film series was a beautiful and epic world franchise. The books are incredible too. But I think if another movie was made, it would affect the original saga. I wouldn’t say ruin it, but people wouldn’t feel the same about it. We were lucky they made the last film into two parts, to keep the movies going for a little longer. But even though the story ending was beautiful, we are left with all these unanswered questions – as with most movie/book series’ that come to an end. People spoke about a spin off maybe from Jacob and Renesmee’s view of perspective, and although this would be interesting to look at, it would ruin the main focal point of the saga itself, which was focused around Isabella Swan. I am however, eternally grateful for all the work that was put into both the movies and the books. I will always be a Twihard, no matter what!

  15. hi i think you should write a book about bella and Edward nessie and Jacob the voltray want Alice Edward and bella i think it should be about that i love twlight I’ve watched everyone 20 times over i love the love that bell an Edward have got and i think your a amazing writer stephanie

  16. She Needs To At Least Make ONE More Twilight .. Showing Renesmee when she gets older , & Since she is half human , half Vampire , I think Jacob should somehow turn the human part of her wolf , so she then becomes a half breed between a vampire & ‘ Wolf . But Her Wolf Color should be pure white , & Something special comes out of it all ..

    • Hi Iam letting people know that I am making a new book it will be called twilight new beginning

  17. no pueden hacer otra película de crepúsculo en donde renesmee y Jacob tiene dos hijos una niña llamada jadesmee rachell black cullen y un niño llamado Edward Jacob black cullen

  18. I think there should be one with jacob and nessy, at the end of breaking dawn 2 alice in visions jacob and nessy kinda hugging by the lake bit edward amd bella are there to so not sure if they are implying the two will be together or if its a close family thing or what but hope they do make another one so we can find out

  19. I am in process of making a new twilight book and soon after the movie will come out 2014 it will be called twilight new beginning

  20. So also let me know what you think should happen in the new book ???????

    • About Renesmee and Jacob’s life… Maybe they will have kids

  21. i really think there should be a next twiligt book that finishes the story with the voltury because the story doesnt seem like everything was finished . the voltury want something that really wasnt explained and we should get to know if they will get it or if the cullens will have to fight them until the end .

  22. i would like to see more twilight.
    i would like to know what will happen to bella,edwared,jacob and renesmee.

  23. I have never liked these kind of movies,but I LOVE the Twilight movies!!!

  28. I think it should be about Bella Edward nessie n Jake n Kristen Stewart Robert pattison Taylor lautner should play in this movie as well it wont be the unless all the original cast members play in it

  29. A new movie is needed , bella needs to show her powers off and resemee and jacob have to become the next generation of the love story x the voltury need to be shown they cannot control everyone . Love the movies . Ended to soon x
