Summit Entertainment and the "Twilight Saga" filmmakers have made a tradition of releasing a new image here and there on major holidays. So, it was no surprise really that the first "official" still from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1" found its way online Thanksgiving day.
The photo is of white feathers cascading over Bella's arm in bed illuminated by the morning sunrise. Taken while the cast and crew were shooting in Brazil two weeks ago, the image is a nod to a key moment in Stephenie Meyer's "Breaking Dawn" novel when Bella (Kristen Stewart) wakes up after her first night of making love to new husband Edward (Robert Pattinson). In the book, the dialogue goes something like this..
“Why am I covered in feathers?” I asked, confused.
He exhaled impatiently. “I bit a pillow. Or two…”
The production is currently filming in Baton Rouge, LA before segueing to Vancouver for exteriors. Bill Condon's "Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1" will hit theaters a little under a year from now on Nov. 18, 2011.
