Renesmee – The Wild Child
Pictures from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 (in theaters Nov. 16th) are starting to roll in. From Entertainment Weekly, we get a sneak peek of the Cullen family’s newest addition, Renesmee. Twilight fans did get a teensy glimpse of her in Breaking Dawn — Part 1 when Jacob Black had a vision of Renesmee growing up, but this is the first we’ve seen of her since then. Named after Bella’s mother Renee and Edward’s mother Esme, Renesmee (pronounced reh-nez-may) will be played by Mackenzie Foy.
Eleven-year-old Mackenzie has starred in many commercials including those for Burger King, Kohl’s, and Pantene. She’s also made appearances on the TV shows ‘Til Death, Flash Forward and Hawaii Five-0. Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 is her first movie appearance.
Mackenzie’s role will be more complicated than Kristen Stewart’s Bella or Robert Pattinson’s Edward. Half-human, half-vampire, Renesmee has many oddities. She matures at an accelerated rate and will have a mix of human and vampire qualities.
It’s too early to tell how well Mackenzie will step up to the role as Renesmee. However, there’s one thing that’s undeniable — she certainly looks the part. The resemblance to Stewart and Pattinson is uncanny. Check out the photo gallery below and let us know what you think about the new photos.
Directed by Bill Condon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz and Mackenzie Foy. This film hits theaters November 16th, 2012.
