“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” director Chris Weitz comments on “Breaking Dawn”

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: “They shouldn’t have done Volturi House Makeover Edition,” tweeted “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” director Chris Weitz in response to a follower’s question late Saturday night. The response followed the tweet of a user listed as Lizz Kraft, who asked the director, “@chrisweitz I gotta now, what do you think of the Breaking Dawn Volturi throne room we’ve glimpsed in photo release? I prefer your New Moon version.”

The referenced change refers to one of several official photos released by Summit Entertainment previewing still shots from various scenes in “Breaking Dawn”. One such photo shows lead Volturi vamp Aro and two other characters in a space that seems intended to serve as the Volturi throne room but that looks quite different (and frankly, lower budget) than the identical room seen in “New Moon.”

The difference points to one consequence of Twilight film movie making: each film has seen a different director. The result has been characters and sets that look different from one film to the next, and varying interpretations of the text.

    Correction. The Volturi throne room was last seen in New Moon by director Chris Weitz, not Eclipse. That room was set up in Montepulciono, Italy, wasn’t it? It was pretty impressive.

    Yes, thank you! My apologies for the misprint (which I have since changed). Chris Weitz did indeed direct “New Moon” and not “Eclipse”.
