Like the Harry Potter franchise, the Twilight Saga will split its final movie into two parts. Breaking Dawn starts on a happy, if weird occasion. The battle for Bella’s heart between Jacob, the werewolf, and Edward, the vampire, which has popularized the monsters throughout the world, appears to be over. Bella marries her vampire sweetheart.

But shortly after tying the knot, something doesn’t feel right in Bella’s belly. She is a pregnant with a vampire baby! Will she turn to Jacob and the werewolves for help? Listen to Jason and Amy discuss this strange turn of events.

与《哈利波特》一样,《暮光之城》将会把这个系列的最后一部电影分为上下两部公映。《破晓》开始于一个快乐的,但却有些奇怪的场景。贝拉 (Bella) 在狼人雅各布 (Jacob) 和吸血鬼爱德华(Edward,就是他使得吸血鬼这种怪物在世界范围内倍受欢迎)之间的艰难抉择似乎要画上句号。贝拉嫁给了她心爱的吸血鬼。
但结婚后不久,贝拉感觉腹部有些反常。她怀上了一个吸血鬼婴儿 !她是否会转向雅各布和狼人寻求帮助?请听詹森和艾米如何讨论该事件的奇怪转变。

Jason:  The new Twilight movie begins with Bella and Edward getting married.

Amy:  I know. That’s so different from most romantic movies. Usually the plot of those kinds of movies ends with the marriage, and you don’t really see what happens after the main characters get married.

Jason:  Yeah, and it looks like some of the craziest stuff ever to happen in this series happens after they get married.

Amy:  Right, she gets pregnant, right? With a vampire baby.

Jason:  That’s right. I mean, the previous movies was a lot of kind of looking at each other longingly and, you know, running around and chasing and fighting, and things like that.

Amy:  It sounds like they saved the most dramatic for last.

Jason:  Right. This isn’t even the last movie though. They’re doing the Harry Potter thing where they split the final movie into two movies.

Amy:  Do you think that’s a good idea?

Jason:  No. I think it’s a terrible idea from like a filmmaking perspective. But I’m sure it makes more money, like if all the fans have to pay twice to see the last movie, basically.

Amy:  Right, and I guess now the last movie is going to have to be even crazier, how are they possibly going to top a vampire baby?

Jason:  Right. She could have a whole litter of werewolf cubs.

Jason says that Twilight: Breaking Dawn begins with Bella and Edward getting married. Amy thinks this is unusual, since movies more often end with a marriage than begin with one.

What happens next in this Twilight movie is pretty unusual, too. Bella gets pregnant with a vampire baby. As you might guess, it’s not an easy pregnancy.

But fans won’t get to find out what finally happens until the next film. The makers of the Twilight movies have decided to split the final film of the series into two separate movies. So you’ll have to pay twice if you want to find out what happens to Bella and Edward’s little monster.

What are your favorite and least favorite things about the Twilight movies?

the face of the pregnant bella is as impressing as the helping blood bags. but it´s too obvious that the werwolves are made on pc .


I have only seen ” breaking dawn ” and jacob and edward are not sooooo cute … at least in the movie.

snoopyboy, i can almost hear from the otherside of the world how your TV is so thankful to me, because i saved its “face” from the second punch, if you accidentally watch that second Twilight :D

I believe you all have rights to choose whats good or not too good according to your oppinion.


I like Twilight franchise and i respect who doesn’t.


Of course is a fiction, but reality is too hard that i prefer to read books! twilight is not the better one, but it has beaten all of other. Most part of the world already watched it or read it before. it is no doubt and notoriously a best seller!

I salute you for that Torpeda. V-Twi I think you took your passion a little bit too far. I can understand the baseball,writting and playing the piano part…but eating less and not being afraid of blood  sound a litte spooky. I’m glad that you’re not into it that much anymore, welcome back to reality

heey guys, i’m an expert in twilight things. I used to be a crazy fan of this … when i was 15 actually)) now i’m a bit sceptical. BUT the movie gave me a lot when i was into it!


I started walking like vampires, writing as beautiful as Edward does, eating less, stopped being afraid of blood, i even started playing the piano!!! i enjoyed biology and learnrd the rules of baseball…..


Twilight often inspires me in my journalistic work
