'Breaking Dawn' was such a jam-packed final book in the 'Twilight' series that it got not one, but two big-screen adaptations. People are already camping out to see 'Part 1' when it premieres on Thursday at midnight, but we have to wait another year for 'Part 2' to hit theaters in November 2012. The biggest question on fans's minds: Where does 'Part 1' end and 'Part 2' begin?
Moviefone hit the 'Breaking Dawn, Part 1' world premiere in L.A. on Monday night to try to find out, and while most of the cast was tight-lipped, there were a few good teases from the wolf pack, the series's newest star, the Volturi, and the woman who penned it all.
When asked, point blank, where 'Part 1' leaves off, all screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg would say was, "I think it's a pretty dramatic ending. I will say that it ends on a cliffhanger."
Julia Jones, who plays wolf pack alpha lady Leah Clearwater, agreed. She admitted that the scene she's most excited for is "the very last frame of the film. But that's all I'm gonna say!"
One thing we do know? Edward and Bella's half-breed spawn -- the rapidly growing Renesmee -- does reach the walking-and-talking stage in this movie. Actress Mackenzie Foy, who just turned 11, let it slip that we will indeed see her as Renesmee in 'Breaking Dawn Part 1.' Although, as her imprinter Jacob (a.k.a. Taylor Lautner) pointed out, "Most of her [stuff] comes in 'Part 2,' but she does have a little appearance in this one. She's amazing -- I can't wait for people to see her in 'Part 2' because she's really, really talented."
So what about that cliffhanger? We know the Volturi are coming to set things right in the vampire world, but when? "The Volturi do show up in the end," spilled Charlie Bewley, who plays Demetri. "I mean, the real end. I mean, like, after the credits roll. So you have to hold on for that. But I can't wait for 'Part 2' ... I can't wait."
And Christopher Heyerdahl, who plays Marcus, agrees. "The beginning of the movie is OK, the middle of the movie is somewhat interesting," he said with a laugh. "But the final scene is really the best."
