Breaking Dawn: Part 2 Sets Date

Those hoping the “Twilight” saga would follow the release plan of the upcoming final “Harry Potter” two-part film (Part 1 in November, Part 2 the following July), I’m sorry to disappoint you.

Summit Entertainment have announced a November 16th 2012 release date for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”, a full year after the release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” on November 18th 2011.

The avoidance of a June/July release for the second part is understandable for a number of reasons, most likely a less crowded release slot and the complexity of the effects involving the Renesmee character.

Shooting on the back-to-back productions is scheduled to begin in November in Louisiana before moving to Vancouver early next year.
