The Volturi are coming! The Volturi are coming! Hide your immortal babies, the Volturi are coming!
As promised, Tuesday (June 19) brought brings a brand new 10-second teaser for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” the final act in the supernatural romance saga based on the novels from Stephenie Meyer. Director Bill Condon’s upcoming finale focuses heavily on the ever-evolving Cullen family, which welcomed two new members to the clan in the most recent “Twilight” movie: Bella Swan, now a vampire thanks to a life-or-death choice made by Edward, and Renesmee, the vampire/human hybrid daughter of Bella and Edward.
The “Breaking Dawn” 10-second teaser centers largely on Renesmee, even if she’s not physically in the spotlight. Edward introduces his baby girl to the rest of his family, but does so with a dark warning: “The Volturi think Renesmee is an immortal child.”
An immortal child, for those not in the know, is a human infant or toddler bitten by a vampire. Despite their young mental age, immortal children have all of the gifts bestowed upon your average vamp — super strength, super speed and more — and are nearly impossible to control. In short, they’re bad for business, and the Volturi make it their business to kill each and every one that they find.
Except Renesmee isn’t an immortal child, despite the Volturi’s beliefs. Newly minted vampire Bella says as much. “She was born, not bitten,” she says forcefully in the teaser. “She grows every single day!”
But when has reason ever really worked on the Volturi? It certainly hasn’t in this case, as the Cullen family’s pleas fall on deaf ears. By the teaser’s conclusion, Aro and his fellow Volturi have descended upon Edward and Bella, who are more than ready to fight for their daughter’s life.
Starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” hits theaters November 16. The full teaser trailer comes online Wednesday.
