Movies or shows always see reboots and revivals. Classics or not, depending on the demand of the audience so many movies have been given new adaptations. Shows have gotten sequels and whatnot. It’s only natural for the fans of the super hit Twilight series to wonder will there be another Twilight movie as well.
Originally written by Stephanie Meyer and published in 2005, Twilight movies are an adaptation of the books which still command a respectable position amongst the top-grossing movies in Hollywood.
So why have Twilight fans set the internet on the buzz for another Twilight movie? I hate to burst the bubble but there will be no new Twilight movie. Not right now, at least. Breaking Dawn (2012) was the end of the series as everything had a happy ending. People have long awaited any sequels but unfortunately, it does not look like there will be any new Twilight movie coming in the future.
But if there is a slight possibility of the fans getting what they want, let’s get to the bottom of this and see what that is.
So Will There Be Another Twilight Movie? Should We Let All The Hope Go?
It’s the hope that kills us, but let’s not be so morbid Twilight fans. Do you know what you signed up for when you got engaged to the world of Bella and Edward? No more books mean no more movies, and that’s the deal you signed up for, so what’s the bother?
Well, there is a new book. It’s called the Midnight Sun. By new, I mean it was published in 2020. By new, I also mean it’s not “new” new. It’s just a companion novel to the first published Twilight (2005) book. This time, the book is narrated from Edward’s point of view, as opposed to the original books, which were from the perspective of Bella.
Why Are People Excited About A New Twilight Movie All Of A Sudden?
The sudden buzz on the internet about new Twilight movies happened because last year in July, Netflix announced that all the five parts of the Twilight series, Twilight (2008), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012), will be available on their platform for streaming.
Fans also got excited about the alternate version of Twilight: Midnight Sun (2018), the new Twilight movie produced by Netflix.
If you want to do a quick search on Netflix for Midnight Sun, there is a movie. It’s not the same one as you would be looking for, though. It’s a Bella Thorne starter 2018 movie, so if you happen to be a fan of hers, go watch it!
Can There Be New Sequels To The Movies In The Original Twilight Series?
There is a strong possibility of sequels of the original line of the Twilight series. Not all hope is lost, even though till now there are no prequels, sequels, or spin-offs planned for the movies. Meyer, on her blog, has talked about working on the sequels of the main Twilight series.
Before any of you Twilight fan starts to whip out their “I LOVE EDWARD” merchandise, it will not be about Bella and Edward anymore. Meyer said that the story would be written from the perspective of their daughter Renesmee. So, even though there might not be a new movie with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the lead roles, there will be sequels.
“The story will continue to revolve around the same characters, but now with Renesmee and Leah Clearwater (the only known werewolf woman, older sister of Seth Clearwater) as narrators to tell a vampire and a werewolf side of the story again.”
A teenage Renesmee narrating the story seems quite interesting if you ask me. It seems logical that the story will be set at least 15 years from the end of the last Breaking Dawn book.
Knowing who will be cast as the actor to play the role is like trying to throw a grain of sand on the beach and trying to find the exact one back. Impossible! Yet a teenager struggling to come to terms with her identity and trying to find her place in the world, now where we have seen that, hm?
The excitement of wanting a new Twilight movie is legit, but things right now seem otherwise. So if I were a fan, I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting for a new movie. Until Meyer herself or the director comes out publicly stating that there will be a new Twilight movie, I suggest putting back your Team Edward hoodies in a safe place.
