5.0 out of 5 stars A Midnight Summer's Dream. Dec 19 2011
By Eden - Published on
Breaking Dawn: The Illustrated Companion is a book that strictly breaks down the mechanics of its production. It's very sequenced. In its beginning, it sinks deeper into the Twilight World, giving a good recap of the phenomenon has a whole before describing The Breaking Dawn plot itself. This time around unlike the other Illustrated Companion's it takes you with them, the cast, as they traveled to the exotic destination of Rio, Brazil while filming the Honeymoon, & does wonders explaining the background of every moment leading up to that momentous kiss at their breathtakingly beautiful wedding. It greatly explains the perceptions of both the people working in front & behind the scenes & the emotions that ran through each of them while trying to make this huge production come to life & hopefully deliver to its fans & viewers & most of all the "Twi-hards" out there that have been anticipating how it'll all end since its very beginning. Therefore, did a tremendous job describing its meaning / expectation to be that much more valuable to all the eyes watching & waiting for Twilight's grand finale.

This book was FULL of tons of interesting insights / behind the scenes (including an exclusive Q & A with author Stephanie Meyer), it does a great job of answering the 'Whys' & 'How's' it came to be. One of the most intriguing parts of it was centered around the Wedding that came with "A Midnight Summer's Dream" theme to it. That explains that the scenery (moss & trees, benches, overall atmosphere) was centered around the concept of Shakespeare. Learning about the very selective hunt to find Bella the perfect wedding dress / accessories & decor. There are some interesting surprising facts surrounding the trip to Rio & all the hard-work that went into fighting against the trials overseas. They also discuss the transformation of Bella that comes at the end of the film & how they made her look so horrific during pregnancy (bone structure & all).

The color scheme of Breaking Dawn is amongst my favorite of the series (its pink faded into purple & dark red's). This book breaks down a lot of deeper meaning into the scenes like how the furniture & all the costume designer's choices were specifically chosen for not only the scene but the overall tone / mood of the movie. It gives great glimpses into detail regarding environment & with that said---- really takes a dive into reality when you get the factory / studio version of the trees & green screened parts shot throughout the movie. It's utterly fascinating. & At the end of it really opens your eyes to how major a movie----this one in particular, has so much heart & effort put into it to finally deliver a combination of different variations of people's visions of just one book, to collaborate & bring about the ultimate creative effort, it's amazing & truly unimaginable. Not to mention the photography this time around is brilliant! Its pictures defintely hold a candle next to my Breaking Dawn Poster. It's lovely to have a part of the movie a month after release & months before its DVD release The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I (Two-Disc Special Edition). Doesn't get much better than that to a Twilight fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Enough TWILIGHT Jan. 28 2012
By faithfully - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not only with the Twilight series, but with any movie I really enjoy I always like to find out where scenes are shot and how, costuming, actors' comments, etc. You just have no clue how much work and planning goes into a two and a half/three hour flick. But, of course, this was special because so much went on in Breaking Dawn in regard to the relationships between Edward Bella and Jacob. And it's not over yet.....

This companion is definitely worth getting! You would not believe all the effects added to this movie! It's INSANE! Great way to get a behind the scenes look at how they mastered each scene, situation, and timing of everything. It was a GREAT read for myself, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who shares the love of the Saga!

I read this book atleast 20 times and I loved it. Again it's a ya novel so take it as you will. But I loved the writing, I think the authors writing got a 100 times better than the others, loved the characters, the action, the emotions the intrigue. Love the secondary characters and the wedding and all the rest
