EW: The Robsten Split, Chuckesmee, and the Different Ending of Breaking Dawn 2

Spunk Ransom has stills of the entire Entertainment Weekly article that will hit news stands tomorrow.  Of course the article touches on the drama that has unfolded around the confirmation that Kristen Stewart had an affair with her SWATH director, but it should be noted that this particular interview took place a week before that news store broke.  Still, Kristen is quoted at the end of the article about how it’s difficult for her to be anyone but herself.  

“People tell me to go easier on myself and play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff,” Stewart said.  “But you know what?  I’d rather be me.”

There is also some information on how the movie makers were able to age Renesmee through CG after the three foot tall life-like doll christened “Chuckesmee” failed to be anything but creepy.  Director Bill Condon, who said, “it was one of the most grotesque things I’ve ever seen,” promised that no footage of Chuckesmee will appear in the final film but will be available on the DVD.

But the biggest spoiler in the article is the confirmation that the ending of Breaking Dawn Part 2 will in fact stray from the book.  Here is what the article states:

Even devoted readers of 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.”  

Read the whole story and see all the images at Spunk Ransom and leave us a comment on how you think this “new ending” is going to play out.  Does it upset you?  Are you excited and ready to be surprised?

    If you didn’t notice from the trailer ALONE that the ending will be different, then you must have skipped reading the book or something. I’ve been very anxious about the major difference that the trailer reveals in at least two places!

    • No necessarily. There was a lot of speculation that the shot of Bella running across the field was a dream sequence. And us die-hard book fans can always hope that Melissa Rosenberg would use the last film to redeem herself for screwing up all the other movies. Alas, it appears it was too much to hope for…

      However, I get the change that made Renesmee older than in the book due to how impossible it would be to make a good film with her as an infant/toddler. I mean, the shot of Rosalie holding her up when Jacob imprints on her was bad enough. I can’t imagine sitting through a whole film of that!

      • Christina says:

        LOL I laugh every time I watch that part of the film. It’s AWFUL. As was the wolf voice overs–they made me cringe too. I agree with you, I was hoping Melissa would FOR ONCE NOT f— this up, LOL, joke’s on us!!!! I still get pissed when I see the end of Eclipse…

    • Which 2 places exactly?

  2. Nissanmama says:

    I had a few misgivings about the ending in the book. I understood it, but it was a bit anti-climatic–all that mind reading. That just wouldn’t work for a visual medium. I’m excited for a big ending!

  3. Who wrote “Kristin”? It’s been five years, long enough to have noticed that her name is Kristen…

    • Twilight_News says:

      That would be me, Lori. My fingers always want to type the “i” twice for Kristen and want to put an “e” in Pattinson. For five years I’ve done it. Sorry!

      • It ok. lol We all mis-type. I still love your articles. ?

      • LOL, that’s not nearly as bad as how I spell Saeioursie, or whatever it is.

        Saoirse. Thank you Google spelling corrector. Why is that i in there?

        I think i finally have Renesmee down finally, tho (no two S’s, just two E’s, which I repeat to myself every time.)

  4. I loved all the books. But I also felt, the ending had a lot to be desired. I’m looking forward to seeing an actual battle. I want to see Jane
    get her ass beat! LOL

  5. Stephenie helped dream it up, so I know it will be good! I’m excited to see the Volturi get knocked off their pedestal.

  6. NO! what a disappointment! the book had the ending correct! Hollywood ruining it! even if SM helped! this is HUGE disappointment! There have been lots of great courtroom drama scenes filmed. Why could they not be true to the book? Good possibility that I will not see it in theatre now. Why spend that much money and be disappointed? So sad that SM caved.

    • Abby, even though I disagree with you I really hope this doesn’t stop you from seeing the film. Give it a chance and you still may not like it but you also might be pleasantly surprised. Also, I would think at this point you would be able to appreciate (or at least expect) book/movie differences. Besides, there must be other things in the movie you’re dying to see like the rest of us. I just hope any preconceived notions of what could be (and that you won’t like it) doesn’t stop you from going to see it.

    • Julianne says:

      SM has said all along that books and movies are so different, you have to be willing to make some changes. I’ve learned to appreciate and even enjoy some of the differences between the two. No way I’d miss this for anything.

  7. I think people forget how divided people are, when it comes to the ending of Breaking Dawn. Either you love it or you don’t.

    I was one if them who found the ending (meaning the showdown at the field) to be way too anti climatic. I *wanted* that battle. I *wanted* Bella to have her go at Jane, Edward to have his go at Dimitri, Emmet beating the crap out of Felix – dammit, I WANTED to see characters die! *cough* Life is not a fairytale, it’s not without losing people you love, even if you’re an immortal vampire.

    So I thank Stephenie for dreaming up a new ending, no matter what happens in it. As long as it ends with Bella and Edward’s happy forever, I’m satisfied, but I need me some action beforehand. 😉

    • I liked the ending of the book but I too felt it was an anti climax.

      I’m with you Maria, I really want Bella to rip Jane’s head off. Literally! Will be awesome to see a full on fight. That is what the ending lacked for me. Dead excited for the movie now!

  8. If Stephenie was ok with the ending I’M OK WITH IT ! Anti climatic blah blah blah I really didn’t care about a battle all I cared about was Bella standing up to them and she did that. Battles are in every book you read I was ok with the ending.

    • I completely agree, Sia, I have all the confidence in the world it’ll be good, even if its a little different, with Stephenie being involved!

  9. I love the ending in the book. But was obvious from the beginning the movie would have to be different to work and I’m okay with it. I can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with! And hey… if I don’t like it I can always go read the book… again 🙂

  10. I loved the ending of the book, but if Stephenie had a hand in how the end of the movie went–then I’m just fine with it.

  11. I think it’s a foregone conclusion that I will love the movie whatever they have done to the end. I am dead excited for November and a teeny bit sad it is nearly all over!

  12. This “new ending” is making nervous&anxious…but I know we will b happy!!! I don’t wana feel like there’s something missing but I probably won’t! Lol!

  13. I was happy with the book but with the last movie I’m excited for a surprise. It makes it fresh and new!

  14. Its kinda stressing, but can’t be nearly as bad as all the other stuff Melissa changed (and there was to much) she really wanted it her way, I am glad to hear Stephenie had her hand in it and helped. I wish she had also written the script….

  15. smitten_by_twilight says:

    No. I’m not.

  16. I totally agree with them changing the ending. When I read the book I was glad that none of the main characters died but I did realize that the actual ending was very anti-climatic. I think in the end of BD part 2 they’ll more than likely kill off a main character (My guess is a member of the volturi as well as Irina) But they’ll definitly have an Alice vision where all the Cullens die, just to add to the suspence. Really excited now! Can’t wait to see what they come up with!

  17. If they kill off one of the good guys (the Cullens) I’ll be pissed. 😛

  18. As long as the “final” ending isn’t something like this: Edward dreaming in the meadow about how his life could be with Bella and all the problems that could go with it as well (we all know how melodramatic Edward is), but before he even meets Bella (or when he is in Alaska) making the whole Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn a dream because it hasn’t happened yet. If that happens – then I’ll be pissed. Anything else – I’ll be okay 🙂

    • Oh gosh, no. I didn’t even think of that until you posted this. Thanks for adding another worry. Hahahaha. 😛

  19. I don’t mind if they kill a Denali or an additional vampire, but if any member of the Cullen family dies, and I find out before I see the movie, I will not see it. And if I see it before my friends and a member of the Cullen family dies, I will advise them to boycott it.

  20. I’m not too worried about the ending being changed. A few of the cast members have said it’s a sendoff to the fans & even made them cry when they’ve watched it.

  21. I’ve done a video, which I hope will get back to Summit, in case they have decided to kill off a character. It’s here if anyone’s interested.

  22. Just hoping that 1) it wasn’t just some dream Bella was having and she is just arriving in Forks or 2) she is somehow preggo with another baby

  23. It would be so exciting if the ending consisted of 2 things: 1) Cullens/wolf pack/etc vs volturi and 2) fast forwarding a couple years after the battle, showing Jacob and Reneesme together, Bella and Edward visiting her mom, Phil, Charlie, and Seth/Leah’s mom. That would tie up all the loose ends!

  24. It would be so exciting if the ending consisted of 2 things: 1) Cullens vs volturi and 2) fast forwarding a couple years after the battle, showing Jacob and Reneesme together, Bella and Edward visiting her mom, Phil, Charlie, and Seth& Leah’s mom. That would tie up all the loose ends!

  25. Dawnika Stephenson says:

    Oh no!
    I hate change and hope It’s not a different ending! If It Is I hope It’s only a slight change, by not changing the result of the final confrontation,just how the result Is reached In the confrontation,or have the confrontation end the same,but just add more, like a dream or more of them hanging out after the battle. Or telling what happens to the characters years down the road after the end of the book, through a dream or flash forward. I do understand only some changes.

  26. Oh god the dream thing is scary, I really hope it doesn’t go that way, I know will cry with a sad and mad feeling than a bittersweet feeling. But I don’t know why everyone is complaining !its twilight we are talking about here! I mean am sure that everybody will love it even it isn’t what you expect it to be wether it’s good or bad. Anyways we have the wonderful book so we can read that ending another million times if we want. I think it’ll sort of nice to have a new ending, becuase I loved the ending of the book and I really wanted to see that one, but I feel like it’ll be missing something. I think the original ending is more for the books than the movies. Anyways am still even more excited for it to come and see how everything comes out ! 98 days to go !! <3

  27. I’m really not sure about this. Ok, if the movie ended the same way the book did, it would be a bit…. strange. It’s like someone said: it’s another media. I get it. However, my concern has two words: Melissa Rosemberg. I really don’t like her work so far. I trust Condon better. So, let’s wait and see.

  28. I look forward to the change. I’ve read the book many times, but I feel it could have been so much more and glad the movie will bring that out. Don’t forget that SM had her hand in this movie than the other 3, so if she made the change and OK’d any changes, then we should trust her decision.

  29. Well, at least we know that tit won’t be a HUGE change like Bella becoming a werewolf or something. The scriptwriter has already screwed up a lot of very cool scenes from the books so don’t worry. It won’t be worst. And in the first film she kept in the plot so. Breath. We will love Breaking Dawn Part 2

  30. SilverTongueDevil says:

    I guess I’m the only one hoping that they don’t leave out the fact that they are always wanting to have sex, lol. Though I’ve grown used to nothing ever following the books I don’t let it ruin the entertainment value on a different take of the movie. Stephenie has to give her sign off on it all so if she’s happy, I’m happy.

  31. Kristen Stewart could look to Tom Hiddleston for a great example. He is a major goof ball and he’s the most “real” and sincere actor out there at the moment with the way he conducts himself be it in an interview or with fans. Feel goofy? Embrace it! Dance, do impersonations, tells stupid jokes, get caught eating, play into the inside jokes, etc. I support her wanting to be herself when she isn’t acting a role in front of a camera. It’s refreshing in a industry where illusion and fantasy is key.
