With the release of Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which has taken in an incredible 
$290 million in domestic box office so far, The Twilight Saga will become the

grosses of all with $821.8 million. In addition, the franchise now has eight

The Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD will include hours of bonus materials that are sure 
to satisfy even the most dedicated fans. A seven-part making-of documentary 
will provide an incredibly detailed behind-the-scenes look at how the finale 
of this epic series came together, including Bella's transformation, a global 
cast of vampires and the shocking climactic battle scene.  The significant 
challenges of shooting Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Part 2 back to back are 
exposed in the feature, "Two Movies at Once." Viewers will also be able to 
gain new insight into the making of the film with an audio commentary by 
director Bill Condon. "Jump to" features allow fans to watch only their 
favorite scenes in the film featuring Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. The 
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 arrives on Blu-ray Disc and 2-disc DVD 
for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $30.98, respectively.  The 
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition will also be 
available on March 2(nd).  Both releases will be available for pre-order on 
January 14(th), 2013. 
"The excitement of the worldwide sensation Twilight Saga's final chapter 
culminates with a massive home entertainment release that will reach fans and 
retailers nationwide," said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate Executive Vice President & 
General Manager, Home Entertainment. "The Twilight Saga has changed the way 
studios and audiences look at the blockbuster, even altering how Hollywood 
rolls out its films. Making the home entertainment release as much of an event 
as the theatrical release, gives our passionate fans an opportunity to
