‘Twilight’ Author Stephenie Meyer Claims ‘Breaking Dawn’ Birth Scene Isn’t Graphic
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer recently commented on the Breaking Dawn birth scene, one the most anticipated scenes of the last installment. Meyer told USA Weekly that the scene isn’t very graphic from what she’s seen so far.
“I’ve only see a rough cut and there are pieces missing, but I don’t feel like it’s graphic,” Meyer revealed, “You’re not seeing it, but you know what’s happened. It’s emotional. It doesn’t feel horror-ish. There’s blood, probably the most blood we’ve ever seen in the series. But everything’s in flux; we’ll see in the final cut.”
This goes hand-in-hand with what Breaking Dawn producer Wyck Godfrey had said earlier this year about the audience seeing what Bella sees. “She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her. We only see what she sees.” Godfrey explained.
We figure this is probably a good way to avoid having to figure out how to visually depicted what fans read in the book (i.e. the actual birth). Twilight fans have been looking forward to this installment for a number of reasons, and Bella and Edward’s honeymoon and the birth scene of Renesmee are probably the two biggest! We hope that the lack of what we see in the birthing scene doesn’t let us down.
