Will The Birth Be In "Breaking Dawn"?


Unconfirmed rumors have been circulating the internet that "Breaking Dawn" has gotten the green light for filming. FEARNet has addressed the idea that a PG-13 rating may not allow film makers to fully create the graphic birth scene from the book should the movie be made.

Of course speculation is also ripe that in order to deliver the PG-13 version of Breaking Dawn that Meyer wants, the studio will have to drop certain elements from the novel, such as a pretty horrific birth scene. What do you think -- should Bella's delivery be toned down? Or should Meyer let the films grow up?

I think that this rating would also mean that fans would only get a glimpse of Isle Esme. I personally hope that they consider staying true to the book before worrying about ratings should "Breaking Dawn" be brought to the big screen.

What do you think?

I think she should let the movies grow up, not only to accurately recreate the birth scene, but also to capture their trip to Isle Esme. In all actuality though, PG-13 movies today, are what R movies were in the 80s and 90s, so I honestly don't see how that rating would not allow them to accurately capture both the birth scene and Isle Esme?? I guess we'll see. Just hoping that they do infact film Breaking Dawn!! :)

i agree. they should worry more about the content of the book and staying true to that before worrying about ratings for the film. the birth scene and isle esme are pivotal parts of the novel and i can't picture the movie without them. i hope they do whats right or fans will be angry.

They should stick to the book. What's the point. If you never read BD, and just watched a PG version of it, you wouldn't get it. You need the build up of their honeymoon, her getting pregnant and Renessme's birth to understand of that they have been through. May have to go R rating for this.

I totally agree. If they don't show the honeymoon phase and what Bella (and the rest of the Cullens, not to mention the werewolves important role) went through with the pregancy and birth as descripted in the novel, there will most definitely be a large chunk of the vital story missing. And what's the point of being true to the first two (probably three, as well) books if they're not going to deliver book four correctly? Grr.

They MUST show the PREGNANCY AND BIRTH SCENE.At least for all the people who haven't read the book. Even if they have to make it R Rated. It wouldn't do Stephanie Meyer justice if they just cut scenes out.
