Let us first examine further what The Twilight Saga is all About:

The Twilight Saga is about a secondary school understudy. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), consistently somewhat of an oddball, does not anticipate that life should change a lot when she moves from bright Arizona to blustery Washington state. At that point, she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), an attractive, however, puzzling high schooler, whose eyes seem to peer clearly into her spirit. Edward is a vampire whose family does not drink blood, and Bella, a long way from being terrified, enters a hazardous sentiment with her undying perfect partner. 

Here are the fun facts you may not know about The Twilight Saga:

1.) Twilight is subtly a vital film for Summit Entertainment, which has since been behind the John Wick films, Oscar-chosen La La Land, the Divergent series, etc. 

2.) Before Twilight came out, Summit had a string of losses between Never Back Down and Sex Drive. 

3.) Rachelle LeFevre Was Fired Before Eclipse.

4.) The Director Was Fired Before The Sequel: Summit Entertainment first began developing Twilight for the big screen in 2007. Later that year, Catherine Hardwicke (who previously directed Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, and The Nativity Story) was hired to direct. Given that the movie turned into a massive financial success (grossing $393 million on a $37 million budget), it only made sense that Hardwicke would return to direct the sequel. Instead, the(director) was fired and replaced by Chris Weitz.

5.) With the release of the teen romance, the studio-built momentum for itself and came out with a string of hits. 

6.) Twilight is still the company’s most profitable property at the box office to date, per The Numbers.

7.) The first Twilight Saga Movie made more money during its opening than any other film directed by a woman.

8.) In real life, Bella would have gone for Eric, not Edward.

9.) The whole story started with a dream, Stephenie Meyer had. And Stephenie Meyer Was Sick Of The Franchise By The End.

10.) Robert Pattinson wrote, “Bella’s Lullaby.”

11.) The Reviews Were Generally Awful.

12.) TMZ reported that Robert Pattinson received $25 million for his role in both Breaking Dawn installments. We can assume Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were paid something similar, and the rest of the cast must have gotten hefty paychecks as well.
