Renesmee Cullen is not an immortal child — but that’s not stopping the Volturi from coming her way.
The impending clash between the Cullens and the Volturi is very much at the center of the newest “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” teaser trailer, which finally dropped on Tuesday, just in time for Edward Cullen’s 111th birthday. But he better blow those candles out quickly, because war is most certainly on the horizon.
All is well, if different, when the “Breaking Dawn” teaser begins. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is a vampire now after the events of the most recent “Twilight” film, opening up new experiences and powers for her to discover. “After 18 years of being utterly ordinary, I finally found I could shine,” Bella says in the trailer. “I was born to be a vampire.”
“You’re so beautiful,” Robert Pattinson’s Edward tells his newly fanged wife. “We’re the same temperature now.”
Even Jacob (Taylor Lautner) is pleasantly surprised upon seeing Bella’s transformation, admitting: “I didn’t expect you to seem so … you.”
But the happy gathering is short-lived as Irina of the Denali Coven approaches the Volturi to report a crime. “The Cullens have done something terrible,” she lies, leading them to believe that Edward and Bella’s newborn daughter is an immortal child — a form of vampire that the Volturi believe is far too powerful to be left alive.
“Maintaining our secret has never been more imperative,” they decide. With one little falsehood, Irina has convinced the Volturi to embark upon the wrongful murder of an innocent child.
“If enough people knew the truth, perhaps we could get the Volturi to listen,” suggests Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) in his typically level-headed manner. But reason won’t be enough, as he and the others know, leading Bella, Edward, Jacob and the rest to start gathering allies for the coming conflict.
No matter the danger that threatens her daughter’s life, however, Bella knows one thing for sure: “I’m never going to let anything hurt you,” she tells Renesmee in an all-too-brief sighting of Mackenzie Foy as the fan-favorite character at the trailer’s conclusion.
Director Bill Condon’s “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” lands in theaters on November 16.
