Bill Condon Wishes the Fandom Happy Thanksgiving Isle Esme Style

No pictures of burly camera operators trudging across crunchy grass in booties, or  flying fish  a la the style of David Slade.  After months of photos like that, and occasional links to side projects, David delivered a photo of Riley.

Bill Condon has pretty much cut to the chase here with a sexy, tongue-in-cheek photo. Perfect considering it’s Thanksgiving and many a bird was plucked for today’s dinner. Bill Condon clearly likes to communicate specifically with the fans, has a sense of humor, and delivers what they want.

Below is the photo(taken by Andrew Cooper) posted on the official Twilight Facebook page that accompanied Bill Condon’s short but sweet Thanksgiving message.

“Happy Thanksgiving and a crazy Black Friday to all of you and yours.” – Bill Condon

EDITED: Confirmed direct from Summit entertainment that it is Kristen’s arm!


  1. FEATHERS!!!

  2. I loved it! he wants us to go crazy! well, mission accomplished! love it love it love it 🙂
    I would like to be waiting for BD seating on a thatre until the movie comes out!

  3. Clearly….we have the right director for THIS movie! 😀

  4. FEATHERS! YAY!! <3

  5. This was such a wonderful gesture on his part – really happy he’s directing BD! I was a fan before, but his communication with the fan world has cemented it even more. (I know a lot of folks on Twitter were saying he needs to deliver for Christmas…but I can last on this image for a really long time.)

  6. Gigi Cullen says:

    Perfect! That makes my thanksgiving day ever better. Oh, its gonna be good, real good. I can’t wait. Thank you Mr Condon for that gift.

  7. Why could HE not have been the director for ALL of the movies?? I say go back and make them all over with Bill at the helm. 🙂

  8. Oh yeah!! Feathers <3 that's what I am talking about 🙂 and a Happy Thanksgiving to him and you all to, it is now PERFECT!!

  9. Awesome! Good commentary.


  10. I really liked David’s photos. He was sharing his own pictures with us and the man has a fantastic eye.
    This is a beautiful shot too- but it’s not as personal.

  11. No bruises!


    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  12. LOVE it! Bring on the feathers!! What a great Thanksgiving present. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🙂

  13. I agree, but where are the bruises?

  20. Twilight Nymph says:

    This is great, it brings up my mood up a bit. FEATHERS YAY!! Alas, it’s not enough, my dog having gone missing is bringing me down.

  21. Maybe the bruises will be CGI’d in? Cool though.

  22. YES..what Jen said! awesome!

  23. Um about the bruises… This shot could be too soon to show the bruises. It looks like a hand in the throws of passion.

  24. twilight dreamers says:

    During. But the bruises are prob cgi or if they did do make up, it would be on the tops of the arms and shoulders. Says so in BD.

  25. Woooohooooo, feathers!!!! Give us more feathers Bill! Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving:)

  26. Konstadina Konti says:

  27. Yay! Feathers!!!

  28. haha xD why am i covered in feathers! xD


  1. […] To wish all of Twilight fandom a Happy Thanksgiving, director Bill Condon posted the first official image from his two-part finale to The Twilight Saga on Facebook. The photo below, which features only a mysterious hand gently grasps loose feathers, doesn’t offer much in the way of self-explanation. But luckily, some internet detective more dedicated than we was able to determine that the hand is indeed the hand of Bella Swan by comparing it to other high resolution photos of Kristen Stewart, a fact confirmed by Summit Entertainment.

  2. […] Twilight Lexicon confrmed from Summit that it as Kristen’s Arm. […]
