So many movies, so many memories. As The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is released on DVD and Blu-ray today, we look back at all five films in the series and pick our favourite moments.
When we were first introduced to Bella, Edward, Jacob and the whole Forks gang in 2008, we had no idea that the Twilight movies would become a global phenomenon. Launching relative unknowns Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner into the spotlight and kicking off Anna Kendrick’s career, The Twilight Saga accomplished the impossible in just four short years. Through on and off-screen romances, tabloid troubles, and mixed results in non-Twilight flicks, the leads have weathered the storm and we’re ready to see where they head in a post-Twilight world, though they'll always be Bella, Edward and Jacob to us.
Hit the jump to see our top 10 moments from the Twilight Saga plus share your favourite moment in the comments!
It seems like we were eagerly anticipating the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in theatres yesterday, but it’s been almost four months since we bid adieu to Bella, Edward, and Jacob on the big screen. Since we last caught up with our favourite group of werewolves and vampires, we’ve been not-so-secretly counting down the days until the movie drops on DVD and Blu-ray, wondering what awesome featurettes and behind-the-scenes clips and extras the DVD would include with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Launter and the rest of the incredible cast.
The wait is finally over and the final chapter of The Twilight Saga is released this week for your viewing pleasure so you can watch it over and over again from the comforts of home. With this exciting DVD release, we are lucky enough to get our hands on five video clips from the DVD featurettes to share! See Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, and Mackenzie Foy talk about the making of the film, and hear Stephenie Meyer and director Bill Condon talk about the behind-the-scenes process of filming Breaking Dawn’s love scenes.

The sun has set on the Twilight franchise with one last blockbuster opening for the supernatural romance.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 sucked up $141.3 million domestically over opening weekend and $199.6 million more overseas for a worldwide debut of $340.9 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The finale ranks eighth on the list of all-time domestic debuts, and leaves Twilight with three of the top-10 openings, joining 2009's New Moon (number seven with $142.8 million) and last year's Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (number nine with $138.1 million).
Last May's The Avengers is number one with $207.4 million. Batman is the only other franchise with more than one top-10 opening: last July's The Dark Knight Rises (number three with $160.9 million) and 2008's The Dark Knight (number four with $158.4 million).
Though Twilight still is a female-driven franchise, with girls and women making up 79 percent of the opening-weekend audience, the finale drew the biggest male crowds in the series. Action-minded guys had more to root for in the finale as Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner join in a colossal battle to end the story of warring vampires and werewolves.
The stars walked the red carpet for the final time at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 premiere in Los Angeles last night. The cast, led by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were in attendance along with the rest of the film’s cast including Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz and Mackenzie Foy. Loyal fans camped out on the red carpet last week, a full five days in advance of the premiere hoping to catch a sight of the Twilight stars.
The cast posed with fans and signed autographs on the red carpet before heading into the film and the post-screening after party which was decked out in true Twilight fashion with werewolves, costumes, and a re-created wedding set from Breaking Dawn, Part 1.

You can’t take on a vampire army without the help of a few friends. As Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) prepare for the fight of their after-lives with the rest of the Cullen clan, they’ve called on a few blood-drinking friends and werewolves to join them in their battle against the Volturi.
Coming from the far-reaches of the globe, these vampire clans land in Forks to show their support on behalf of the Cullens as the Volturi come to judge the bitten-not-born Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). We’ve already met a few of the members of the Denali clan, but there’s some fresh faces getting screen time in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. And just who are these battle-ready vampires? Get ready to meet the members of the Amazon, Irish, Romanian, Egyptian and Denali covens in our photo gallery.

All of the innocent flirting, intense stares, romance, bouts of lovesickness, vampire revelations, werewolf battles, deaths and births have lead to this moment, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, and four years, not to mention million of books sold, is going to stir up some serious expectations.
But the actors behind the Twilight franchise - Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, to name a few - and the director of the last two films, Bill Condon, seem confident that the epic story will get a fittingly thrilling ending in this new featurette.
They offer more details about what expectant fans can look forward to, further explain the Renesmee story and express their own emotions about facing the end, with Stewart empathizing with Twihards saying: "They watch the movies for the same reason that I make the movies; because I know what it's like to love something so much."
Feel the love with this Breaking Dawn - Part 2 featurette.
It’s here! The last Twilight poster. Ever. We mean it this time. We thought the poster that debuted earlier this month was the final one, but lo and behold, there’s a new poster to help us count down to the epic finale on November 16th and we couldn’t be more excited.
Edward (Robert Pattinson), vampire-eyed Bella (Kristen Stewart), and our favourite werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) are staring down the approaching army led by the Volturi in this brand new poster. It’s going to be one epic battle that we can’t wait to see on the big screen!
