Stephenie Meyer and Wyck Godfrey Eclipse DVD Commentary

Here are some spoilers of the Stephenie Meyer/ Wyck Godfrey Producer Commentary. This commentary seems entertaining! Not as entertaining as the Rob and Kristen one, but still good. Just click the ‘SHOW’ to see the commentary spoilers. Enjoy!


Supposedly a drunk friend was recording Xavier in his video audition he sent in.

• The title art was initially different. SM: It was boring.

• They chat about Bella having a voice over at the start of every movie. Wyck suggests Kristen’s voice over for Breaking Dawn will simply be “I’m pregnant”.

• SM describes the wig being a “diva”. i.e. requiring attention

• They joke about how Charlie is always drinking beer describing him as being the most alcoholic cop in movie history. SM describes him as the unsung hero of the Twilight series. Everyone loves Charlie. Then Wyck says he’s a “sung hero.” People have actually written songs about him so lookout on the next soundtrack.

• SM: Kristen’s skin is beautiful.

• They talk about fighting over the music. SM wanted Florence and the Machine song in the Beck and Bat for Lashes scene.

• SM likes Jasper’s hair despite it changing every movie. She thinks they finally got it right.

• They love Sarah Clarke. SM concludes Charlie and Renee are getting married again.

• In the Bella riding off on Jacob’s motorbike scene they laugh about the windshield wipers on Edward’s car stopping right in front of Rob’s face all the time.

• Imprinting: They decided the Claire/Quil story will be held until Breaking Dawn

• They call the wolfpack nudists running around in “jorts”

• A few people on set replicated the “spider monkey” scene in the Cullen house soundstage.

• The tribal story scene was the worst scene to shoot besides the baseball scene in Twilight.

• Kristen as the 3rd wife made the test audience laugh- unintentionally funny – so they cut it.

• SM talking about the books of the Twilight Saga: “Chris really gets the rough end of the stick. He got the weird one.”

• SM loves the sound of Bella’s hand crunching Jake’s face.

• All the producers practiced the Jacob/Bella kiss.

• SM walked out of Wyck’s trailer upset after seeing Angryward scene. She knew Jacob’s arm would be ripped off if Eddie ever tried to grab him by the shoulder.

• SM/Wyck call Emmett and Rosalie jerks for not coming to the graduation of their siblings.

• Wyck wanted Jacob to come into the graduation party scene as wolves to make a more dramatic entrance, or wearing jorts.

• Like Rob, Wycke also jokes that Alice looks drunk walking down the stairs before the flashback.

• Wycke to SM: “ You’re a logic Nazi!”

• SM: Talking about changing the style of the wolves between NM and Eclipse: “It’s just like the hair. Next time the wolves will be panthers!”

• Jacob wolf looking arthritic as he walks away from Bella-I totally thought that as well

• Wyck doing a Tenessee accent (its terribly funny)

• Like Rob, SM also commenting about Jasper’s “They’re verr come in the south”

• SM on the kid Jasper killed in the flashback: “That kid was nice, it was sad when we had to kill him. We should have picked some child actor who nobody liked”

• Talking about having a hot Rod party. SM : “The thing about Wyck is, he lies a lot, and you can’t tell when he’s lying or not.” Wyck: “Can we put Andy Samberg in BD?”

• SM has heard “imprint” and “battle” too many times, she no longer likes those words

• SM was there for the leg hitch scene

• SM: “Kristen’s really authentic and vulnerable. “

• Kristen running down to talk to SM wondering if she could do anything else during the leg hitch scene.

• Proposal scene: Rob keeps the ring under the bed. The first time they forgot about giving him the ring.

• Leg hitch: They knew it was a fandom request

• Wyck talking about Bella trying to seduce Edward: “I thought she could have had him.” SM: “If only she had you there to advice her wyck.”

• They were almost going to flashback to Edward courting Bella back in the olden days in black/white. Would have been unintentionally funny.

• In proposal scene Rob stressed out a lot. In the end the scene looked effortless

• Scene where Riley/Victoria kiss. Wyck: “He bites her lip!” SM: “ooh yeah I think you would lose a bit of lip there.”

• Korts=khaki shorts, Wyck plans to make a new line. SM will make a swing dance commercial for them.

• Taylor dropped Kristen going up a hill when he had to carry her.

• They all bought parka’s for the mountain top scene. It was hot, they didn’t need them. They send their thanks to producer Bill Bannerman

• First take of tent scene, Jacob kept his distance not touching her at all. They re-shot as SM insisted he be holding her.

• Edward/Jacob bromance is mentioned a few times

• They mention people having to shaking the tent outside to imitate the wind.

• For the tent scene Taylor emptied a trash can (everyone wondered why). It was for Kristen to make her feel more comfortable because she was terribly sick that day

• SM and Wyck commenting on Kristen not wearing her big jacket when walking out of the tent in the morning. They suggest Kristen throwing down the jacket in the scene and saying “you knew he was listening. I hate that coat!!”

• Jacob/Bella kissing scene: 2 different filming locations. SM added the last little kiss between J/B. SM: This required more demonstrative kissing “everyone was kissing everyone!”

• THEY FILMED JACOB/BELLA GETTING OLD TOGETHER. They had a grey Bella wig and everything. But everybody laughed so they cut it out. WHY ISN’T IT ON THE DVD?!?! WHERE IS IT?? WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE IT?!!

• OK i don’t get this. SM: “At least they cut the part where they then continued the hunt and they leaped over a log and now Bella is being played by a very muscular stunt man i believe. Also now Bella is ripped. It was a very interesting aspect of her vampire transformation.” NO IDEA.

• They had a nickname for a newborn whose make up stood out: The “neon newborn”

• SM: “Esme kicks butt. A lot of creative ways to kill people.”

• SM mythology issues. She believes it looks too easy to kill a vamp. They should have to work more to do it.

• There was a Bree/Esme scene that was cut. Its not on the DVD.

• SM “Bryce’s face kills me” “crazy beautiful its unreal”

• SM: “Xavier’s face is so noble.”

• Wyck: (joking about Xavier)We really did take his arm off for this shot. Method acting

• Edward trying to get Victoria to attack him and not run away. Wycke: “Turn him into “ass” SM: “Oh wycke. These movies would be really different if you were writing them. They would be funny!”

• SM about Bella/Edward running from Victoria: “Hide behind the tree, that would fool her!”

• Wyck: “Kristen should do an all out action film. She’s really really athletic.” (I agree!) SM: “Oh she so should. I loved watching her run in New Moon, in Italy”. Wyck: “Really?” SM: “Yeah she looks so good”

• They sped up the speed of blood running down Bella’s arm

• There were shots of Riley’s disbelief as Victoria ignored his screaming that were cut out.

• SM on Edward: “I learnt this one in Italy!” as he bites off Victoria’s head.

• SM (funny voice): “There’s Leah. Screwing things up again!”

• W: “There was a shot where a wolf phased into naked Jacob, Ultimately too nudie.”

• SM: “I am always jealous of Jane’s outfits.”

• Rob/Kris kept laughing off camera trying to get Dakota to laugh when she was in character as Jane. They succeeded.

• SM went around saying “Pity” a lot after seeing the movie. (imitating Jane)

• Bree falls to the ground screaming. SM: “She’s so cute.”

• SM talks about auditions for Bree: 250 people screaming. Many of them badly. It was a painful experience.

• SM on Bella talking to Jacob when he’s sick: “Everyone’s listening. And they all want to beat you when you come back out.”

• They say the Jacob/Bella scene at the end is a great scene!

• Then they complain about Sheen’s of sweat, pillow sweat etc.

• Then they start joking about bad medical props. Wyck: Carlisle is to medicine like Charlie is to the police force.

• Wycke: Kristen’s fantastic again.

• There was song before metric that was supposed to be in the final scene that they got attached to. It was already released. They don’t say what song it was.

• They talk about the score which was made in England. SM: “Maybe we should film Isle Esme in England. Because its very tropical and warm!”

• SM on Bella’s final speech: “It feels like she’s made progression. She understands herself a little bit more.”

• Wyck on Edward giving Bella the ring at the end: “You missed the fight where she threw it at him. Oh yeah good off screen!”

• Wyck had a fantastic idea for Bella when Edward wouldn’t let her see Jacob.SM: “She storms upstairs. There’s a Picture of Joan Jett stuck by her mirror. She nods to herself and pulls out the scissors”. W: She looks in the mirror at herself and cuts her hair! Like Joan Jett. SM: Then we would be done! W: Then entire movie with hair like Joan Jett. That would have been fun. SM: No one ever listens to you Wyck.

• Wyck: “There are a few people we would like to thank….” SM thanks the Craft services, they’re like set mums. They make grilled cheese sandwiches like no other.

• Then they get serious and thank the director, assistants etc.
