Part 2 of Joyce's 3 Part Series:
Family, or "Where the Heck Did All the Cullen Go."
Something else I really hope we see in Eclipse is the Cullens. They were kind of missing from the other two!
When Twilight the Movie was being cast, there was incredible interest and excitement over the actors picked to play the Cullens. Not because Mike Welsh wasn't a cute guy or Anna Kendrick wasn't a great actress, but because, besides Edward and Bella, the characters we most care about are the Cullen family. We love Alice, she is our best friend, and Emmett is our big, teasing brother. Jasper is our trusted confidant, and Rosalie is, well, Rosalie. We bonded with them in the books, but to be honest, they are pretty much missing from the movies so far. Eclipse provides a great a chance to round out these characters with Jasper and Rosalie's background stories. But ideally we would see more than just that. It would be great to see the "kids" interact like siblings- laughing, teasing, playing chess. We have to know the family to love the family and we have to love the family so we can understand why Bella would give up her own family for them. After all, it isn't just Edward she pines for in New Moon, it is the family she had wanted to be a part of as well. So, the Cullens are what I want to see in Eclipse!
