The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Continuity mistake: As Bella walks down the aisle during the wedding ceremony, a single strand of her hair has gotten caught in the right-hand corner of her mouth, then it disappears, then it is back again. (This is harder to see on DVD than it was on the movie screen.) (00:13:40)

Revealing mistake: After Bella gets married and Jacob is angry because he thinks Edward will kill her, Sam tells the pack to leave. When the pack enters the woods, they jump down into what appears to be some sort of pit. You can see blue lights, slightly illuminating the pit area in the woods that Jacob and the pack jump down in. (00:39:00)

Suggested correction: I am watching the movie right now and I'm at this scene, and she is barefoot when she jumps on his back. Not sure what you thought you saw but you're wrong.

We do indeed see Bella's left colorful shoe just as she jumps onto Edward's back.

Continuity mistake: When Bella first discovers that she is pregnant by throwing up, she closes the toilet seat with her right hand upon seeing Edward. When the camera cuts back to Bella, her hands have changed and the left one is resting on the toilet seat cover instead. (00:49:10)


Revealing mistake: When Bella calls Rosalie, you can briefly see the cell phone screen before she puts it to her ear. The lock screen is still visible, showing she didn't dial anything. (00:55:45)


Continuity mistake: When Jacob runs outside the Cullen's house to stop the wolves from fighting them. He leaps off the steps and runs towards them. Before the shot changes he is right beside Edward and another wolf, however, in the close up shot of him saying "Stop!" suddenly he's in front of Edward. (01:40:40)

Continuity mistake: Right when Bella's transformation begins her hair is bushed above her shoulders then next shot her hair is under her shoulder, then when her hair is changing color it's back on her shoulder. (01:42:45)

Continuity mistake: When Edward and Bella are in the taxi in Brazil, he has his wedding ring on. In the shot when he kisses Bella in the street, the ring is suddenly gone.

Revealing mistake: Notice when Edward picks up Bella at the island. He kind of stumbles like Bella is heavy although he has superhuman strength.

Revealing mistake: When Bella agrees to drink human blood to save herself and her baby, she says: "I'll try anything." If you look closely at her mouth when she speaks, you can see that even prior to her first sip of blood, there is a red substance between her teeth from a previous take.

Other mistake: Emmett states that the Cullens "haven't hunted in weeks", meaning all of the vampires should have black eyes. However, all of the actors still have their golden contacts in. This is especially noticeable on the Blu-Ray.

Continuity mistake: Charlie hands Bella off to Edward at the altar, she is carrying her bouquet, the next shot is from behind them, Bella, Edward, and the pastor in the shot, she still has her flowers. In the next frame, from the front, it's Bella, Edward and the pastor's back, flowers are gone, and they never show up again. She didn't hand them off, there was no one to hand them too.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bella has just given birth and stops breathing, she is wearing a gray shirt. Then Jacob starts CPR on her and her outfit changes to include a robe.


Other mistake: When Edward and Bella are playing chess on their Isle Esme, Edward takes one of Bella's pieces but puts his own piece down on the wrong square.


Continuity mistake: Fullscreen only: Charlie walks up to Bella and asks if she is ready (to walk down the aisle), the stem on his lapel flower is white. She glances at the guests waiting, camera shot is back on her and Charlie, the stem is suddenly black.


Continuity mistake: Bella wakes up from her dream on their honeymoon, and she is crying. Her blue nightgown keeps moving on her left breast. The band is up, then it is down.


Continuity mistake: When Jacob and his pack meet with Sam's pack, Seth and Leah are standing behind Jacob the entire time. At the end of the scene, when Sam's pack leaves, we cut to a shot of Jacob from the same angle as the previous shots where Seth and Leah were, and they are gone, with no indication that they left.

Continuity mistake: As Edward and Jacob are working to revive Bella just after she gives birth, Bella's eyes keep changing from being open and unblinking to tightly closed. The "making of" documentary on the "DVD Extra", showed a life-size dummy of an emaciated Bella with closed eyes that was used in more physical scenes. You can tell it's the dummy whenever Bella is shown with her eyes shut.

Continuity mistake: When Edward is showing Bella the bruises on her arm and shoulder, his wedding ring is on his right hand. They are looking in a mirror, but the camera is on Edward, not the reflection.


Continuity mistake: When Bella is first seen pregnant, she is wearing grey pants, a blue shirt and navy jacket, Edward is wearing a brown shirt, and Carlisle is wearing a blue mock turtleneck. On what is supposed to be the next day (and after having seen them wearing different clothing), all three are wearing the same clothes again while in the library/makeshift hospital room. They are discussing a cracked rib that was causing Bella pain the day before. These scenes were obviously meant to be back-to-back, but were rearranged in editing.

Emmett Cullen: Bella, I hope you've been getting enough sleep these last 18 years, because you won't be getting any more for a while.

Question: In the end credits scene, what is it that the Volturi wanted? If it was Renesmee, is that a mistake, since they were informed about it in part 2?


Answer: They want Alice because she can see into the future, which would be a significant advantage to the Volturi. Aro destroys other covens, sparing the one member who has some special ability.
