New 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' Photos of Renesmee Show Jaw-Dropping 'Family' Resemblance

OMG 26

Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy, Kristen Stewart, Robert PattinsonTwilight fans, start your engines -- a flurry of new images of 11-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee Cullen in Breaking Dawn Part 2 have been released, and they have to be seen to be believed.

As you probably know, Renesmee is the half-human, half-vampire baby of Bella and Edward (When a sparkly daddy loves a human mommy very, very much …) We only got a quick peek at baby Renesmee at the end of Breaking Dawn Part 1, but thanks to a spectacular photo spread by Entertainment Weekly, you can now see the entire vampy family in character.

The pictures are really well done, and I have to say, whoever cast Foy for the role should get a biscuit -- because her resemblance to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is downright eerie.

Here's a look at the cover images:

I mean, wow, right? Mackenzie Foy is a gorgeous little girl, and I swear she really looks like she could be their daughter.

In news that's sure to delight fans, Director Bill Condon said that Pattinson and Stewart really embraced their parental roles in Foy's presence:

They were amazing with her. It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective. I’d have to interrupt them when they were in deep  conversation to get going with a scene.

Pattinson said the cast tried to tone down their shenanigans in front Foy, and that she raked in some serious cash in the process:

We’re all around the same age and we’re really not polite to each other anymore. You’d have to tone it down when Mackenzie was around. She had a little swear jar, and I think she made 850 bucks or something.

As for Foy's eyebrow-raising physical similarities with her cinematic parents? Stewart said it actually made a difference in her own performance:

Even our hands look similar. It was kind of strange. But it’s funny how it actually helps. It’s like, ‘Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!’

You can see all of EW's Breaking Dawn Part 2 photos here, including more images of Mackenzie Foy with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner -- in addition to Dakota Fanning, Kellan Lutz, and more.

Well, here's the part where I lose most of you by confessing that I thought Breaking Dawn Part 1 was terrible. I especially hated the CGI wolves, and Bella's endlessly creepy withering self was just dreary to watch after a while.

I'm tentatively bullish on Part 2 on November 16, though. I'm thinking the final flick in the franchise has a better shot at improving on some of the things people didn't love in the earlier films (WOLVES), and based on these cast photos, the characters look great. I never liked the idea of Renesmee in the books, but on film? Well, Mackenzie Foy might just change my mind.

What do you think about the new Breaking Dawn Part 2 images? Are you looking forward to seeing Renesmee onscreen?

Looks AMAZING! Can't wait and I'll be about 7 months pregnant when I get to go see it. Yay!

I read the books. Liked the books. Have watched all the movies. They are awful! LOL I mean it's ok now. I expect them to be. But unlike the Harry Potter series where the acting got better as the KIDS got older these "actors" are already set in their ways sand it's not good. We will watch the last one but am not real hopeful for improvement!

You would think the joy of motherhood would result in a different facial expression for Kristen but guess not, huh?

Kristen Stewart's facial expressions seem to be limited to "mouth open/ mouth closed" And I always thought the name "renesmee" was something put together by maybe an elementary school kid... God awful writing and even worse movies...

Who hated the wolves? They were the best part. The backstory about Jacob's family and how they protected humans from vampires...are you kidding me?! The best part of the books and the films have been Jacob's story.

as much as I love the series, books and movies, I totally agree about the weird and crappy cgi wolves.  Surely they could have done it better.  Too cheesy.  I'm hopefull that they change it for the last movie as well.  It's not like anyone would care.  What's one more sequal that takes a different approach right?  Each one has been different, I would love anything that improves it.

She's a beautiful little girl but much older than I ever picture Renesmee when reading the book.

I hated all prior movies to this. Then again the deal for me to go watch this with my friends was to be drunk first. I would not other wise pay to see such horrid movies. Made a difference. Guess I wont be watching this one since I'll be close to delivery.



But the girl is cute. Hopefully acting is good too.
