Yay, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 film is finally here {{{Squeals, screams, sighs, moans!!! And one gigantic exhale ... }}} I saw it yesterday, and it was so frickin' awesome that I even felt momentarily satiated afterward. However, now the question is, of course, what can we expect in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2?!!

For now, we have a release date at least! Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is set to hit theaters on November 16, 2012. Yippee but so far away!!! Those of us who read the books are dying to know how they're going to handle the action-packed second half of the final book in the series. Let's take a look at what we know (and speculate) about Part 2 so far.

WARNING: Part 1 and Part 2 SPOILERS!

Run time: Breaking Dawn, Part 2, in its current cut is said to be 1 hour 52 minutes without credits. Why so short? I could easily sit through two hours or more ...

Bella the Vamp: Breaking Dawn, Part 1, ended brilliantly with that jolting reveal of Bella's blood-red eyes, as she wakes up as a drop dead gorgeous newborn vampire. This can only get better, as we watch her come into her vamp-ness and learn to control her frenzied thirst for human blood.

Actor Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen) talked specifically about Bella's physical change to a vampire:

She looks fantastic. For some reason, once they put those contact lenses in, you look very statuesque.

Think she's going to look a little like she does in this vamped-up cover?

Cast & Crew: Part 2, like Part 1, is directed by Bill Condon and based closely on Stephenie Meyers' original text. And, of course, our three favorites will return as Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart), and Jacob (Taylor Lauter). Woot!

Renesmee: One of the best parts of Part 1 was getting to meet baby Renesmee but also, when Jacob imprints on her, getting a sneak peek at Renesmee through her first, uh, months of life as she grows into a lovely little half-vampire tween. We already know that adorable actress Mackenzie Foy (pictured above) will play Renesmee throughout the film, but what's really cool is her face will be superimposed on varying sized bodies to represent her rapid-speed growth. Can't wait!

Volturi: As readers of the book know, the Volturi will be back in full force for Part 2, again with Michael Sheen as Aro, Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius, and Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus. Much of the film will surely focus on the Volturi's plot to kill the Cullens as well as Renesmee, who they believe is an "immortal child" (a child turned into a vampire by the Cullens). Can you say bitchen battle scenes galore?

In fact, actor Michael Sheen described the vampire vs. vampire battle scene like this:

Oh this is very amped up ... I think we spent something like four or five weeks shooting that scene and it takes up a big chunk of the movie. And it's got extraordinary things going on in it, so it certainly won't be anticlimactic.

Jane: Yay, Dakota Fanning will be back as the super-evil Volturi servant Jane. God, she's so evil with her fondness for torture techniques ...

French Coven: Apparently Part 2 strays from the book a bit by adding in a French vampire coven (they are not in the book), but thankfully Stephenie Meyer did the writing on this addition. This new coven includes Henri (Amadou Ly) and Yvette (Janelle Froehlich (Yvette). Wonder what part they'll play in everything ...

Bella's Special Power: I can't wait to see how they portray Bella's special powers. I wonder how it will look to see her bounce her protective shield out to save the others.

In case you missed Ellen yesterday, she put together her own sneak peek for what to expect in Part 2. Hilarious!

What are you most looking forward to in Breaking Dawn, Part 2?
