November still seems like a while away, but we're coming up on the five-month mark until Summit delivers the final installment in The Twilight Sagawith Breaking Dawn Part 2. So it really isn't too soon to start seeing glimpses of the new and returning characters. We've already gotten a couple of peeks at the movie. But now we have our first official look at the newest member of the Cullen clan.
This article contains some details about the plot of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novel Breaking Dawn, some of which have not been revealed in the film yet, so keep that in mind if you haven't read the book and you're trying to avoid spoilers! For everyone else, read on!
When Breaking Dawn Part 1 wrapped up, Bella gave birth to a baby daughter. The gory delivery nearly sapped her of her life, but Edward managed to save her with his venom, effectively turning her into a vampire, as revealed in the final moment of the film when Bella's eyes opened. Entertainment Weekly posted the photo below on their Facebook page.

With Mom standing protectively in front of her, it's hard to get a good look at little Renesmee, but what's clear is that she's not a baby! Did we jump forward in time? Nope. If you've read the book, you know that as a half-human/half-vampire, Renesmee grows at a remarkable rate, which explains how she appears to be child-size already. And that's not the only thing that makes her different!
On a related note, Is it me, or does Edward's hair look bigger? Or have I just gotten used to seeing Robert Pattinson with other hairstyles? As for Stewart, the vampire look seems to suit Bella, whom we might hope to see showing off her newly-acquired strength and speed when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 arrives in theaters November 16.
