The final book covers a lot of ground, including the aftermath of Bella and Edward’s honeymoon, Bella’s difficult pregnancy with her half-vampire child Renesmee, Bella becoming a vampire herself and discovering new powers, Jacob coming into his own in the wolfpack and an unprecedented gathering of vampires from around the world.
– Renesmee has two unique traits: She communicates by sending mental pictures and grows at an accelerated rate, to the point that she never looks the same twice. It’s likely the film will have to incorporate computer graphics to depict the pictures. How depict the growth isn’t as clear. One possible route is to cast multiple actresses for Renesmee at her various sizes/ages. The supernatural quality of her maturation, however, has encouraged producer Wyck Godfrey to mention the effects used in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” In essence, it would only require the casting of one actress, whose image is then manipulated and enhanced with CGI to create Renesmee in her various stages of life.
A director has not yet been chosen for “Breaking Dawn.”
