Will the ending of Breaking Dawn differ from the book?
We have gotten a lot of questions about whether the ending of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 will be different from the book. These questions have come up after some comments made in the recent Entertainment Weekly article referencing the changes. Here’s what the article says so you can see for yourself.
Got all that? Well, just you wait: Even devoted readers fo the Stephenie Meyer books are in for a pretty big shock in the final third of the film, when the plot strays from the last novel in a sequence dreamed up by Meyer and longtime screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg one night over dinner. “When I first read the script, I got to that part and was like, ‘What?’” Pattinson says. “And then I had to go back a page.”
The actors stress that they hope the film’s surprises won’t leak out before Nov. 16 — so we won’t spoil anything here. But we can tell you that even those averse to change will be more than satisfied, and probably thrilled, by how the series ends. The actors certainly are. “It does it a serious justice,” says Pattinson. Stewart agrees. “It’s clearly made by someone who really likes [the saga], who really cares,” she says. “That’s why Bill Condon is perfect. Thank God for him.”
So, yes it does appear the story will differ a bit from what is written in the Breaking Dawn novel. But before you get too angry, you have to consider the changes were from the brain of Stephenie Meyer herself, and if you trust Steph, you have to trust it was a good change! Also, a lot of times they have to make changes from book to movie to make sure that it flows properly for screen (for example, adding more drama or conflict). I’m looking forward to seeing what this big change is. How about you?
