In the next installment of the saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Edward and Bella (played by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) take their relationship to the next level.
"They make love for the first time, they get married and pregnant," says director Bill Condon.
Much of the vampire honeymoon was shot just outside of the Brazilian town of Paraty. "There's this incredibly sensual vibe down there," says Condon.
While Jacob, the werewolf played by Taylor Lautner doesn't get the girl in this one, he does manage to get over her, and in doing so "becomes a man," says Condon. At least he gets to ride a cool motorcycle.
