It has been five years since Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made hearts flutter in the Twilight series. Their chemistry was undeniable, which was further cemented when the two became a real-life couple. But, is another movie possible after Breaking Dawn: Part 2?
The Twilight series consists of four romance, vampire-themed fantasy books written by Stephenie Meyer. The books follow the life of Isabella “Bella” Swan and how her life changed when she moved to Forks, Washington. She met Edward Cullen, a century-old vampire, and the pair fell in-love. The series is told mostly in Bella’s perspective. The series was a commercial success and the first book was made into a film in 2008.
Another Twilight movie with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart?

According to Glam, there is a possibility that a Twilight sequel will be released. It is not confirmed yet, but Patrick Wachsberger from Lionsgate claimed that the studio is open to another Twilight movie.
“It’s not certain, but it is possible,” the executive said, adding, “Stephenie Meyer is what’s important here. If she wants to tell a story about the other characters, then we’re here for her.”
Meyer actually released two Twilight spin-offs. The first one is The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner in 2010, which tells about Bree, a girl converted into a vampire for Victoria’s army in Eclipse. And in 2015, Life and Death: Twilight Re-Imagined was released. This tells the original Twilight story except that the characters’ genders are reversed and it has an alternate ending. Many fans believe that these books could be made into movies.
But There’s A Catch
Despite the possibility of a new Twilight movie, it looks like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will not join the cast. Fans are disappointed when Stewart confirmed she’d rather take on other roles. During her interview with New York Times, it was hinted that Robert Pattinson is the reason why she doesn’t want to go back as Bella Swan.
“People wanted Rob and I to become a couple so badly to the point our relationship became a product,” Stewart admitted, “There’s nothing real to it anymore and that disgusted me.”
Robert Pattinson didn’t release any statement about the possible sequel but his fiancee, FKA Twigs, supports him. A source claimed that Twigs trusts Pattinson and she is not intimidated by Kristen Stewart. Fans can only wait if the new Twilight movie is final and will include Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
