Twilight Movies In Order

Twilight was originally a book series written by Stephenie Meyer that has since turned into one of the most successful movie sagas to ever hit the big screen.  Since its inception, there have been over 100 million book sales alone, as well as five different movies which are based on the original novels.  The movies take you on an epic journey following the experiences of average teenager Isabella Swan.  She meets a supposed teenager, Edward Cullen who is really a vampire born in the early 19th century.  They quickly start developing romantic feelings for each other, and Bella soon finds out the truth about Edwards not so normal past.

Most people recommend watching all of the Twilight movies in order, chronologically.  There are many parts in the 2009 “New Moon” that you will not understand without first watching the original movie.  Additionally, the latest two movies called “Breaking Dawn” were actually released in two parts, part one and two.  The movie and book differed slightly because “Breaking Dawn” was originally released as a single book, but spanned across two films.  To get the full experience, you should definitely watch them in the order that they were released.

Many readers have finished the first or second book before the first movie came out in 2008.  If that’s you, there’s no need to re-watch the first one.  The plots are similar enough to where you can just start watching the films instead of finish reading the book series.  As you may already know, the book and movie order follow the same timeline.  If anything, you’ll probably have a better understanding of the characters and plot development if you read the first couple stories in the series.


Like most books that were made into movies, there are some significant differences between the two.  For starters, Alice and Bella’s friendship is nowhere near as developed in the actual film.  Because they had to limit the time, a lot of their friendship simply didn’t make it to the big screen.  Another major thing the flick left out is the history of Carlisle.  It did not go into detail about the self-control he developed over hundreds of years or his immunity to the scent of human blood.  This makes it hard for people to put into perspective how hard it is for Edward to be near Bella.

If you’re one of the very few people who have not seen or read any of the stories in this amazing saga, I highly recommend it now.  The order in which you watch them is very important, so start at the beginning, and enjoy yourself.  If you want a detailed development of every character, and some historical background information on certain characters, the book is for you.  If you just want to sit back, and check out an awesome movie series, then you should watch the film.

    I loved it such strong love happens and I wish there were more about like a witch or something more I love the kinda love triangle but it just needs more like a show called the vampire diaries a villain,love triangle and a lot more ! I just wish that kinda stuff were in twilight after a while I just got tired of the crazy love a vampires and stuff !! I kinda wish the would make like a swap about twilight but Bella an Jacob just to see what it would be like and if more people liked it then they did the regular twilight I’m not saying that they would just if they did they could make more movies or like tv series!!!!! On NETFLIX!!!!!
