If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either a mega-fan of the Twilight series or have at least heard of them. If not, what are you waiting for? The saga that has kept its audience captivated for more than six years is finally coming to an end, and we’re going to find out what happens next.
The Final Twilight Movie Will Be More Than Ambitious
If you follow Hollywood headlines, you’ll know that fans of the Twilight movies have been hoping for a brand-new installment for some time now. After the huge success of the first Twilight film, the crew behind the scenes decided to give into their demands and come up with the perfect ending to the saga. While the ending is definitely happy, it will be more than amply filled with twists and turns that will keep you captivated. Even if you’ve seen the movie a hundred times, you’ll find something new in it every time.
The Final Twilight Movie Will Be A Real Tribute
According to reports, the movie will be dedicated to the memory of Stephenie Meyers, whose death was declared on June 18th, 2016 by her doctor. Fans of the Twilight saga have always pointed out that the films were inspired by Stephenie’s life, and now that she’s gone, the filmmakers have finally found the character that most closely resembles her. In the end, it’s clear that without her, there’d be no Twilight movies.
New Zealand’s Favorite Son Is Returning To His Homeland
In addition to becoming a global phenomenon, the Twilight saga has also become quite the cultural phenomenon in New Zealand. The story began when the first film was released in 2009, and since then, fans of the series have been eagerly awaiting news of Robert Pattinson’s next move. After a lengthy break from acting, the actor has decided to return to his homeland and take part in the final film of the Twilight series. While the decision came as a shock to fans, it made perfect sense for Pattinson, who has spent the last six years out of the spotlight.
The Last Stand Will Be A Real Test Of Character
While it’s clear that audiences will get their fix of suspense and adventure in The Last Stand, it’s also important to remember that the film is meant to be a serious test of character for its young stars. Pattinson and his co-star, Chris Evans, have been teasing us with teases of action-adventure for months, but if you want to get really deep, this is the film that will ultimately define them as mature actors. The Last Stand will be their chance to show us what they’re really made of, and judging from the early footage that has been released, they are up to the challenge.
There Will Be No More Young Adult Literature
Thanks to The Twilight Saga and its devoted audience, young adult literature has never been more popular. According to data from the American Booksellers Association, the adult fiction market share for the 12-to-24 year old demographic increased from 7% to 11% between 2010 and 2015. We’re clearly in an era where young adult fiction is taking over, and the last Twilight movie is going to drive this trend even further.
The adult market share for the entire 12-to-24 year old demographic nearly doubled between 2014 and 2015 to 15%. If these numbers are any indication, the last Twilight movie is going to be a real game changer in terms of audience reach.
This Is The End
If the previous points weren’t enough, let’s not forget about that bombshell of an ending. After years of holding out for the perfect romantic partner, Bella finally found her soul mate in the form of Jacob. They spent their time apart working on their relationship and grew even closer over the years. When they finally got the chance to be together as a couple, it was the happiest day of their lives. The audience was finally given what they’d been longing for since the beginning – a love story between two individuals who genuinely care for and about each other.
Unfortunately, their luck couldn’t last. While filming the Twilight movies, Pattinson was bitten by a spider that turned out to be venomous. He eventually recovered and spent the majority of 2015 recovering from the bite. It was during this time that he began to question his sexuality and felt that he could no longer hide who he really was. With nowhere else to turn, he confided in Edward, his character’s best friend, who helped him to finally come out to the world. The result was the highly-publicized and ground-breaking Vanity Fair cover that featured a gay kiss between Pattinson and Evans.
After years of being a supporting character in his own life, it’s finally going to be Edward’s turn to shine as the Twilight series draws to a close. With Bella, Jacob, and a host of others, the series has given voice to those who feel that they’re not represented by society’s standards, but rather, their own personal truths. As much as we’ll miss Bella and her struggle to find happiness, this is clearly the moment where her fans can finally embrace her for who she truly is – a brave and beautiful girl who taught us all that it’s possible to be happy despite our circumstances. This is her story, and it’s been an incredible ride all along.
