Question: What happened to Jenny's sisters?

MikeH

Answer: Even though it's never seen, they were most likely sent to live with other relatives. What happened to them after that is unknown.

Question: What reason did Bella give Charlie for going to Italy?

MikeH

Answer: It's unknown if she gave Charlie a reason. As she was 18-years old, she was free to go. She may have generally told him it had to do with Edward being in trouble, but would not have gone into details.

Question: Why are the Volturi even needed? If humans know about vampires, there's nothing they can do about it. What if a vampire uploads a video of themselves to YouTube, and it instantly goes viral?

MikeH

Answer: People do not know vampires exist. The only thing known is through myths and legends, which no-one believes is real. The Volturi exist to act as a centralized, albeit loose, form of vampire government, that other vampires rely on to maintain their community. Any vampire breaking the laws or doing anything that exposes their world faces death, so it's unlikely any would violate the code of secrecy.

Question: How many horses did Smiles A Lot care for?

Question: Are werewolves bulletproof like vampires?

MikeH

Answer: Considering how badly Jacob was injured during the battle with Victoria's vampire army in which his ribs were crushed, it is unlikely that werewolves are bullet proof.

Question: Did I hear correctly that Jacob says "Seth will spell me in the morning" when he's telling Edward and Bella that he's staying with them overnight at the campsite that Edward set up to hide out during the fight? If that is correct, I've never heard that expression before.

Answer: It's a common expression. It means 'to take over'. So Seth will take over in protecting Bella in the morning for him.

Question: Will Renesmee ever die of old age? And would it be possible for her die from something a regular human could die from?

MikeH

Answer: Renesmee is not immortal, but will live an extraordinary long life and she will age slowly. It was never revealed if half-breeds can succumb to human ailments. Considering half-breeds are extremely rare, it's unlikely anyone knows.

Question: Jacob almost murdered a baby. He only decided against it when he involuntarily imprinted. Why would the Cullens still welcome him in their house after that?

MikeH

Answer: It was never shown that the Cullens knew Jacob intended to kill Renesmee, only that he imprinted on her.

Question: If Edward had successfully revealed himself, would the Volturi have killed everyone who saw?

MikeH

Answer: It's unlikely they would do that. People may claim to have witnessed some strange event, but unless there's tangible rather than anecdotal evidence, this usually, over time, is dismissed. Killing the witnesses would garner unwanted attention on the Volturi.

Question: Since werewolves stop ageing, wouldn't humans notice?

MikeH

Answer: The werewolves in the Twilight series are Quiliute Native Americans who mostly live on their reservation, have their own school, own legal system, etc. Being as it's a rather cloistered society, it would be easy for certain members to generally go unnoticed.

Question: Why did Eddie try and pull the trailer up with the car? Wouldn't it have made more sense to use the trailer's own power?

Answer: Half of the trailer is hanging off the cliff and the other half is slipping. He needs the weight of the car to try and anchor the trailer while the car's reverse motion pulls the trailer away from the edge.

Answer: He might not have had the keys to start it. He might not have known if the damage inflicted on it by the T-Rex had made it inoperative. It could also be simply down to fear! Would you like to be behind the wheel of something that is falling off a cliff, because I sure as hell wouldn't! If it suddenly started to fall faster, it would take far less time to jump out of the car than what it would to get from behind the wheel of the trailer, get up on the dashboard and jump through the broken window.

Question: What would Jacob have done if Renesmee left? Would he have followed her? Wouldn't it be emotionally painful for him to be away from her?

MikeH

Answer: If, in the future, Renesmee left, Jacob would have to accept that, regardless of whether or not he was emotionally hurt by it. Because he imprinted on her, he is bound to abide by her needs and decisions.

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?

MikeH

Answer: They want Alice because she can see into the future, which would be a significant advantage to the Volturi.

Question: Does Joseph know or at least suspect who his biological father really is?

Question: Who killed the dog?

MikeH

Question: When Woody Harrelson is eating the key lime pie in the opening scene, how exactly was that pie made? It looked more translucent like Jello, as opposed to regular key lime pies, which resemble cheese cake.

Question: Did the scene where the Taliban pretend to surrender really happen?

Question: When the main body of the toys and the "false" Buzz, and then also the "real" Buzz are climbing up the elevator shaft to rescue Woody, how do any of them know which specific floor/vent intake to get off at?

dizzyd

Answer: The new store Buzz watched as the elevator stopped at floor 23, the penthouse. When they were all in the elevator shaft there was one vent opening under the number 23 printed on the wall, so that's where they entered, then they walked until they heard the sound of Woody's voice.

Question: This is a two part question: firstly if Crazy Carl was onto Sonic why didn't he find any of Sonic's quills when Tom found one without even looking for one? Secondly: what happened to the ring that Sonic threw and bounced of the robot, did he get it back, or will it play a part in getting Robotnick back in the possible sequel?

Darth Crucible

Answer: First, it seems Sonic doesn't shed his quills that easily. Tom found one just by sheer luck. Second, yes that ring is likely going to play a part in the sequel.
