One of the things that we always look forward to in the Twilight movies is the fact that point-of-view is expanded. The books, other than for one section on Eclipse and one section on Breaking Dawn, are from Bella’s point-of-view. So unless Bella saw something with her own eyes, we only get to hear about it and not really see it.
One of the best scenes in Eclipse, in our opinion, is the battle with the newborns and the fact that we get to see it and not just hear about it.
Melissa Rosenberg talked about this opportunity in Breaking Dawn with NBC’s PopcornBiz:
“I did actually [get to do that], because we got to fill out the story because we’re doing the next two movies,” said Rosenberg. “So there was room to play and expand on some of the characters that Stephanie introduces. That was a lot of fun.”
“It’s a much more grownup movie – It’s an adult story,” the writer said of evolving the franchise beyond its high school origins. “The stakes are raised even higher because it’s not the story of teens. It’s the stories of grownups, so we’re talking about marriage and children and family – and these are pretty grownup things, but sexy.”
