The 5 Most Anticipated Scenes From ‘Twilight’
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

TwilightAuthor Stephenie Meyer has spawned a worldwide phenomenon with her Twilight Saga novels, and fans of the books have been on pins and needles waiting for the first film adaptation from the series, Twilight, to be released. There’s been a lot of talk about what elements from the novel will make the theatrical cut. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has said that she had to condense some aspects of the story, as well as combine some supporting characters. Hopefully, Rosenberg’s vision of the story will be true enough to the book to be acceptable to fans, while also expanding upon scenarios that were not thoroughly described in Meyer’s tale.

Twilight is the first tale of the teenage Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) who moves to the cloudy small town of Forks, Washington, where she meets the intriguing Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). Bella soon finds out that the pale, handsome boy is really a 108-year-old vampire, but unlike the creatures of legend, Edward’s clan does not feast on humans, only animals. Initially, Edward tries to stay away from Bella for her own sake, but the twosome find that they can’t deny their love, which puts Bella in danger when the vampire tracker James (Cam Gigandet) catches her scent and will stop at nothing to get her.

In the novel, the story is told as a first-person narrative by Bella, which means there are times where events are talked about to her, but never played out. There’s several instances where Bella is either in another location than the Cullen clan during a dangerous mission or she’s injured and rendered unconscious, which means we don’t get her firsthand perspective.

Below are the 5 most anticipated scenes from Twilight, which comes to theaters this Friday, November 21. NOTE: To those of you who haven’t read the book, there’s some spoilery material, so be warned.

Bella & Edward’s Steamy Bedroom Scene

TwilightIt’s widely known that Kirsten Stewart (Bella) and Robert Pattinson (Edward) auditioned for director Catherine Hardwicke with a hot and heavy bedroom scene. Every since this info got out, fans have been hoping that this scene would actually be in the film. Reports so far have been conflicting: yes, scenes were shot, but Stewart was 17 at the time, so it might not be used. A few months ago, Hardwicke said she did some reshoots, including the bedroom scene now that Stewart later when she was of age, but there are reports that we might not see too much anyhow since the couple does not even come close to consummating their love in the novel.

Edward’s Lullaby For Bella

Edward invites Bella home to meet his family, and while Bella isn’t physically afraid of the vampire coven, she is scared … that they won’t like her. It’s during this integral introduction that Bella learns of Edward’s musical abilities. Prompted by his family to play the piano for Bella, we learn that Edward has an extraordinary talent, so great that Bella feels insignificant in comparison. But just as Edward’s virtuosic piece finishes, he begins a more soft, sweet lullaby which he tells her she inspired. Obviously, it’s difficult to convey in the novel what Edward’s original material sounds like, so the film really needs to showcase this moment. The song “Bella’s Lullaby” is on the film’s soundtrack, so it seems as though we will get something from this part of the book.

Vampire Transformations

When the Twilight story begins, the Cullen Family have already been living amongst humans for over a hundred years without revealing their true nature. It’s only when Edward confides his secret to Bella do we begin to learn how he and the other members of his adopted family became vampires. What made Anne Rice’s vampire tales so much more than just monster stories was the disclosing of each vampire’s transformation. This is actually what the Twilight movie needs. I’ve been wondering for a long time now if the film would simply “tell” the Cullen backstory or if we’d be treated to some much-preferred flashbacks. Promo photos released last month (located at Twilight Freak) not only confirm several flashbacks, but also at least one transformation.

James and Edward’s Fight Scene

James lures Bella to a dance studio, misleading her into thinking that he’s holding her mother hostage there. When Bella arrives, James taunts her, playing with his prey before he goes in for the kill. When Edward arrives to save her, an intense fight between him and James ensues. In the novel, Bella falls unconscious, so the reader isn’t privy to how the battle was waged. It’s the film’s task to show (not tell) the viewers what happened, and judging from the trailers and clips released, it seems like we’ll get some good action sequences out of this scene.

The Prom

Upon reluctantly entering the high school gymnasium where the prom is being held, Bella said, “This looks like a horror movie waiting to happen” (most likely referring the famous prom scene in Stephen King’s Carrie). Since Bella is so klutzy and accident-prone and still recovering from her injuries, she fears having to dance, so Edward lifts her off her feet and glides her around the dance floor like only a strong vampire can. Just when Bella begins to feel some glee, Jacob (Taylor Lautner) arrives and cuts in on the dance to warn her against Edward (at his father’s behest). In the novel, this part is all too short, so hopefully it’ll be lengthened for the film because this epilogue not only fuels the fire of this love triangle, but also addresses Bella’s desire to be turned so she truly can be with Edward for all eternity.

Twilight fans: Which scenes are you anticipating in the upcoming film?


  1. Actually, I’m more looking forward to the meadow scene than anything (and the bedroom scene XD). Prom… eh, since that mouthrapist pig Jacob is going to be there, I’m not looking forward to it all that much. I’ll like that part better at the end, when they’re alone. Also, I can’t wait to see the hospital scene after he saves her from James.

  2. LOL at “mouthrapist pig!” I agree with you although I think Taylor Lautner is VERY cute!

  3. Yup, basically this article says it all.
    The anxiety I feel everyday, and have felt everyday since I read twilight new moon eclipse and breaking dawn is really realatable to many many teens out there.
    My school is literally twilight mania, you walk down the hallway and you can smell a twilight saga book anywhere.
    You give people the stink eye just for having a twilight shirt which you think they shouldn’t own because they haven’t even finished the saga. But yes. In the end its all worth it. I guess reading Twilight 5 times is a bit obsessive but I don’t care because it still gets me. =] I’m the queen at my school I know EVERYTHING about the movie and book.
    Btw, I’m going to the twilight tour in hollywood. Eeek!
    Team edward.

  4. Of course the Meadow scene is the one that all the fans are looking forward to seeing. Edward losing control around Bella for the first time… very hot. Also, the Cullen’s playing baseball will be fun to see. I agree with the ones you have chosen but I hope when you were talking about extending the prom scene you weren’t referring to more Jacob time. His character is just so annoying! I guess it will be fun to see a slightly jealous Edward, but they can’t expect us to believe Bella would find that boy even remotely interesting with Edward standing there!

  5. I just can’t wait until the scene of bella in the hospital and she has to give up staying away, once the nurse drugs her with meds!!! I just can’t wait to see her stuggle with staying awake!!!

    Comment by Tina — November 17, 2008 @ 12:16 am

  6. I’m actually more excited for the meadow scenes. And of course the bed room scenes and Bella’s Lullaby. I can’t wait until Friday! Team Edward!!!! <3

  7. the baseball scene and the meadow scene. I want to see Edward sparkle!

    Comment by team edward — November 17, 2008 @ 5:19 am

  8. For having been a fan of the book for so long now I just want to see the whole movie. The article mentions some really good scenes, but what about the baseball scene? The Port Angeles scene? Or even the first morning he stays the night and she KNOWS he’s there? Like I said, I honestly can’t wait to see any of this.

    Oh, and the flashbacks…I agree. I was really, really hoping the would make the stories flashbacks instead of storytelling time! I doubt it, but I hope that Carlisle’s story is a complete flashback detailing all the history he has…yeah, I doubt it (just not probable for a lower budget film), but it would be really nice to see the London of his youth.

    Can’t wait till the movie comes out!

    Comment by Jen — November 17, 2008 @ 5:28 am

  9. the most anticipated scene in this movie for me?? “The End” HA! j/k

    Comment by Matt — November 17, 2008 @ 5:33 am

  10. NOT THE MEADOW SCENE? I can’t wait to see sparking Edward… I’m curious to see if they totally botch it or not, at least. But I’m really not that excited about the fight scenes because we’ve already gotten to see them online like a billion times…

    Comment by Rachel B — November 17, 2008 @ 5:58 am

  11. I’m looking forward to the Meadow scene, the Baseball scene, the Prom scene… THE EVERY SCENE IN THE WHOLE MOVIE. (=(=(=


    Comment by Maggie — November 17, 2008 @ 8:18 am

  12. I’m looking forward to the Meadow scene the most. I wanna see sparkley Edward! =]

    Comment by Sarah — November 17, 2008 @ 9:09 am

  13. You forgot:
    THE MEADOW— Smokin’ hot sparkling Vampire!!!!!!!!!!!!
    PORT ANGELES— said smokin’ hot vampire driving super cool car really fast, oh, and terrifying a few scummy jerks.
    VAMPIRE BASEBALL —’nuff said
    HOSPITAL SCENE Edward’s conflicted feelings of bloodlust and love for Bella torture him in a way that is heart breaking. Not to mention the foreshadowing of NEW MOON
    Oh, and EVERY scene with a crooked smile!! Robert Pattinson should trademark that!!!! :)

    Comment by Wendy — November 17, 2008 @ 10:08 am

  14. Well, I was looking forward to the near vehicular homicide scene until every entertainment TV show in the world played the hell out of it. Guess I’m not anymore.

    Comment by kapgar — November 17, 2008 @ 10:23 am

  15. the meadow scene!! <3

    Comment by ivy — November 17, 2008 @ 10:44 am

  16. THE MEADOW SCENE!!!!! Thanks for the article but i’m lost at why this wasn’t included in the list. With all due respect (really),did you even read the book? It’s the most important scene. You finally understand everything in this scene. It lays the foundation for everything.

    Comment by Lauren — November 17, 2008 @ 11:30 am

  17. Uh oh…you forgot what is the one of the most significant scenes in the book, one of the most anticipated and the scene which we have been deprived of any clips or pictures (well. a tiny pit but they don’t tell much) – the meadow scene. It’s the scene where Edward and Bella actually confess their love and Edward shows off his sparkles ;)

    Comment by Daz — November 17, 2008 @ 12:32 pm

  18. My top scenes i’m looking forward to would be;
    1. The Meadow
    2. First Kiss (this would have been included in the meadow scene but by the looks of the clips it happens in Bella’s room.
    3. Prom Scene (‘I dream about being with you forever’)
    4. Basesball
    5. Biology lessons (even though they have been cut short says Catherine Hardwick)

    Comment by kristy — November 17, 2008 @ 1:24 pm

  19. 1.) The Meadow (I can’t wait to see the sparkle!)
    2.) The Kiss
    3.) Port Angeles
    4.) Baseball
    5.) The phenomenon chapter (though I agree it did get overplayed)
    I’m starting to get nervous this last week. I hope the movie lives up to the hype and while it won’t be a perfect interpretation of the beloved novels, it will have to suffice.

    Comment by Kimber — November 17, 2008 @ 5:43 pm

  20. Wow…I never dreamed watered down half assed written tween romance would strike such a cord with high schoolers. yes I read these for my self, these books stink, I wouldn’t call it crap unless I had first hand experience with the material. R.L.Stine could have done this way better and thats pretty sad.

    Comment by korollocke — November 17, 2008 @ 5:54 pm

  21. Robert is a hunk. I read the “Adonis” look he was aiming for was by following a “special” diet and working out. Too bad the director decided to cut the shirtless scene out of the movie.

    Comment by Helen — November 18, 2008 @ 7:47 am

  22. I can’t believe they didn’t put the whole “Blood Type” chapter i. It was my favourite part in the whole book! I reckon it would have been exciting to see how the scene was handled. :(

    Comment by Emsalee — March 13, 2009 @ 1:57 am

  23. I think the whole thing is going to be great its hard for me to choose just one moment so idk. but i do disagree with alot of u i dont have anything agianst edward but jacob is totally smokin hot!
    ~team jacob~
