Bella sits next to Edward Cullen in biology class on her first day of school; he appears to be disgusted by her, much to Bella's confusion. A few days later, Bella is nearly struck by a van in the school parking lot. Edward inexplicably moves from some feet away and stops the vehicle with his hand.

[19] Though Summit has not yet officially greenlit the project, star Robert Pattinson stated that there are plans for a Breaking Dawn film. [20] Meyer stated in her Breaking Dawn FAQ that if one were to be created, it would have to be made into two movies because &quot;it's hard to imagine it fitting into ninety minutes. The book is just so long! I can't imagine how to distill it—if I could, the book would be shorter&quot;. [3] She also believes it may be impossible to film due to Renesmee, writing that an actress could not play her because she is a baby but has complete awareness, and that &quot;the one thing that I've never seen is a CGI human being who truly looks real&quot;; however, she went on to state that &quot;they develop amazing new technologies everyday, and we've got a little time left&quot;.
