Movies or TV Productions

New Moon, 2009
Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson return as Bella and Edward in the New Moon movie. Taylor Lautner will also continue in his role as Jacob Black (only now with 26 additional pounds of muscle). New Moon was directed by Chris Weitz, who promised fans of the Twilight saga that he would stay as faithful to the book as possible, but fans of the book will notice the following changes: Bella will be more daredevil-ish in the film than she is in the book (if that’s even possible). Instead of coming to Bella as a disembodied voice, Edward will appear as an apparition. We’ll also be able to see the scene in which the werewolves destroy Laurent. Lastly, in the book Edward promises he'll change Bella into a vampire if she marries him but, in the film, his ultimatum will differ. Overall, New Moon is expected to look and feel more like a studio movie (enhanced CGI) compared to Catherine Hardwicke’s independent flair for Twilight.
