Martin Cortez says:

I would really like to see a spinoff with just either the werewolves or the vampires. I’d prefer the werewolves because of the history of Native Americans and all their customs. It would be very cool and interesting to see how the whole werewolf thing started. Like who was the first werewolf and how it continued and also to see how the whole “beef” with vampires started.

Jdiamond says:

Jacob because he has the esthetics of possibly a multicultural background, coupled with the classic boy next door good looks. His looks are more approachable to the melting pot of America.
Bella nor Edward deserve a spinoff because Bella exudes the traditional white trash upbringing of middle America, something I personally have enough experience with and donot wish to partake or learn any more about.
Princess Edward is the same as a east coast prep school twirp who cannot handle his jäger bomb, once again who I have too much experience with.

Victor De La Torre says:


Christian R. says:

I think there should be a spinoff series about Renesmee Cullen.

Nicholas De La Torre says:

I want to see Renesmee get a spin off. All the Twilight fans must know what her future with Jacob.

Mayra says:

Nessie, so that we can know if her and Jacob could ever succeed.

Amy S. says:

Edward… How he became a vampire!

Jason Cervantez says:

The person I would love to have their own spinoff would most likely be Leah Clearwater. I believe there is so much backstory there and it would be interesting to see where life takes her after the series is over.

Lexy says:

I would love to see more of Jasper and Alice! I love their characters and would love to see more of how their storyline would continue.

Edith says:

Would love to see more about the Quileute tribe and the wolves!

Haley P. says:

Jane because she is AWESOME!

kim says:

Rosalie Hale

Whitney says:

I would have to say Alice.

megan w says:

Jacob and the Pack have a story to tell and can go in a different direction.

Annette says:

I’d probably like to see a spinoff series of Jacob and the wolves, OR of Charlie. He wasn’t listed as an option but his poor life has definitely become more complicated.

Kassandra says:

I’d love to watch the love story between Jacob and Renesmee. When she’s older of course.

Kelly Hieng says:

I would definitely want to see a spin-off with Emmett!! Emmett is so funny! His humor, strength, and pride would make for one epic spin-off!!

Brittany Hieng says:

I want to see a spin-off with Rosalie. She’s faced many difficulties as a human. It would be cool to see how she became the kick-ass vampire she is today.

Kelly Hieng says:

I would definitely want to see a spin-off of the series with Emmett. He is hilarious! It would be interesting to see how it would play out with his chill-back demeanor compared to the rest of the Cullen’s.

Brittany Hieng says:

I would love to see a spin-off involving Rosalie. Rosalie faced many difficulties and struggles as a human. It would be great to see her transformation from weak human to kick-ass vampire.

Michael Hieng says:

I want to see a spin-off with the wolves. It would be cool to see more about how they were spirit warriors before they were actual werewolves.

Rosemarie Ochoa says:

I want a spin-off with Carlisle Cullen. He has helped many people. I would want to see his struggle of becoming a doctor, working with the Volturi, and eventually creating his family.

Rhea says:

Jasper. His struggles with what he is and his life before the Cullens would make an intriguing story.

Kylie says:

Probably Renesmee would be interesting…

Zahira Herrera says:


Wes says:

I would like to see a spinoff movie series with Jane played by Dakota Fanning along with the origins of the Volturi. I think that would be intriguing and interesting, more of the darker side of the story!

Tess says:

Sam Uley the leader of the La Push pack would be a great spinoff movie because I would like to see how the whole pack formed and how it originally started.

Lita says:

An obvious spinoff movie would be about Bree Tanner. The existing novella called “The Short Life of Bree Tanner” about her perspective about the life of a newborn vampire, created by Victoria. Plus I read the book too!!!

Wilson says:

Carlisle Cullen because I want to see a movie about how the family came together and how he came across Edward and other people.

Chris says:

Jasper Hale because I remember the scene when he goes out of control when he saw Bella bleeding from a paper cut, I want to see past events prior to that in which how is personality was brought up!!

Danny says:

Rosalie Hale I would think be a good one because I want to see how she met Emmett and became part of the family.

Donna says:

I would like to see a spinoff of Rosalie Hale and the origins of her story would be interesting in my opinion!

Laverne says:

ALICE I think would be a great spinoff to it :)

Nicky says:

I think a spinoff of Nessie’s life after this story continues.

Donna G says:

Emmitt the man in the Cullen family.

Danny G says:

Alice the reason why is because this is my mothers name.

Hilda says:

I would love to see more of what happens to Renesmee…what happens when she grows up?

valerie says:

i think emmett would make a successful spin off! he has the looks, muscles and humor to keep me tuned in! :))

Kristy says:


Nalleli Herrera says:

I am torn! I love that Alice is bubbly and optimistic even though she had a hard life. I cannot imagine being easy living in an asylum back in the day, or now for that matter, so I would like to know more about her. However, I also think Leah Clearwater deserves her own spin-off. I assume that seeing your cousin with your ex- is not easy especially when you still have feelings for him but to add the supernatural component is insane. I guess if it is not meant to be it is not meant to be. I think her story and her coming terms with the whole situation would make a nice novel.

Efren says:

I would love to see more of the wolves and their tribes story.

Donna says:

Renesmee Only because what to see what she will look like when she is older.

Danny says:

Nessie so we can follow what happens to her.

Frida says:

I would love to know more about Alice and where she came from and how she was made.

Janie says:

Renesmee of course!! What happens when she grows up???

Janet says:

I would love to know the origin of the Volturi. Especially since they are the largest and most powerful coven of vampires.

Nicolas says:

I think knowing more about the wolves and their tribe and other tribes with possible supernatural abilities.

Crystal S. says:

It’d be interesting to see a spinoff of the other wolves like Sam or Quil and their lives with the girls they imprinted on; I guess what I feel would make it so interesting would be to see the relationship evolve between Quil and little Claire, I just can’t seem to picture it. Then again, maybe Benjamin and seeing his life with his powers of controlling the elements.

Norman W says:

The Wolfpack. Let’s see more of the wolves.

Andrew says:

More wolves, I guess.

MichaelN says:

Alice for sure.

PTolentino says:

I would like to see a spinoff of the wolves – more depth, how they came about and what their aim is in the future

TBell says:

My pick for a spin off is Alice.

Ryan M says:

A spinoff about Jacob and the wolves would be awesome!

Victor Uribe says:

I’d like to see Alice get a spin off.

Michelle Hanamaika'i says:

Renesemee. There could be an entire series based on her relationship with Jacob!

Jae says:

A wolfpack spinoff!

Shelly Quattrone says:

I would like to see a spin off with Carlisle Cullen.

ronnie says:

Dr. Cullen!

Elena says:

I think Charlie. The fact that so much went on around him, and he just didn’t notice. Good sci fi, usually starts out that way, then something crazy happens and they are brought into this ridiculously life changing event that continues with a new sense of normalcy. The fact that he’s law enforcement is a bonus. With his new knowledge, he could know his granddaughter.

Tiffany says:


Sarah says:

I would like to see Emmett get a spin off because he’s so hilarious and then we could all see how he met Rosalie. Reneesme’s future would also be nice to see.

Cecilia R. says:

I’d like to see a spinoff of Esme Cullen. It would be interesting to see her back story and what made her the mother she became to the Cullen family.

amanda says:

My favorite character to be in a spinoff would have to be Carlisle in a House sequel.

Monica Acosta says:

I would like to see a spinoff of Jane :)

melissa perez says:

I would love to see a spin off about renessme…her growing up and see the relationship between her and jacob come into play….

Hilda T says:

What about a Charlie spinoff?

Hannah says:

A spin off with Alice would be neat to see.

Sophia Hernandez says:

I would really like to see a spin off story about Alice. I feel so much more could be said about her life of before and after becoming a vampire. She is such a lively character that her spin off story would be just as intriguing as the original Twilight Series.

Steven Hernandez says:

I believe that if a spin off should occur it should happen for Emmett Cullen, because not much was said about this character.

Melissa M. says:

I think a spin-off about Alice would be great! Her backstory!

Missy says:

Carlisle! His story has always been interesting. I’d like to see him working in a hospital . . play off of that!

Christy Rogers says:

I would like to see Rose in a spinoff. She has a wicked past with her ex and it would be neat to see more in detail.

Mel says:

Esme :) We hardly know anything about her

Renee N says:

I think the Jasper and Alice story has the best opportunity for a spin off because of Jasper’s past, fighting the vampire children in the South. Also, Alice gathers the sympathetic vampires throughout the later half of Breaking Dawn, her story line is not detailed. This adventure would make a great spin off. Plus, Jackson Rathbone came to Fresno with his band 100 Monkeys and he was really nice. He stayed and signed autographs and had a good sense of humor about questions regarding R-Paz.

Jorge S says:


Ben says:

Jasper would make a great spinoff

Melissa says:

I think a flick about Rosalie would be cool

melanie says:

Renesmee & Jacob! If she stays a teenager and he stops aging from shifting….it would just be interesting to see what happens there. I feel like the story just dropped off when their story should’ve began!

Jose H. says:

Although he was killed, I would like to know the story of James.

Melissa says:

The Clearwater family!

Bobbi J says:

I would love to see Emmett Cullen. They never really go into details about Emmetts life. But as strong as he is, I’m sure there’s a great story there.

Rochelle R. says:

Definitely Renesmee!

Bridgette Jaurique says:

Charlie, he needs something!

stf says:

Would love to see Alice again.

Nancy Taylor says:

All time fan of Peter Fanincelli so naturally would love to see a movie about Dr. Carlisle Cullen. The focus of his character … events leading up to the 1st movie..

Adrian Oceguera says:

I would like to see a spinoff about Alice. Been Team Alice from the start, and it would be awesome to see things objectively through her eyes. Like a stop motion film

Josie A says:

I would love to see a spinoff of Emmett and Rosalie, actually adopting or being able to raise a baby since that was something she wanted badly.

Christy says:

Rose would make a great spin off.

jeremy says:

Jasper & Alice

Missy says:

the volturi! the origins!

sonya says:

Jasper should have a spin-off.

Katrina Sanchez-Carlock says:

I would like to see more of the werewolves, the tribe, and their roots. Love werewolves, tribes, and anything Native. :O)

Melanie says:

I would like to see a spin off of Renesmee. The story just leaves you hanging!

Katelyn Chavez says:

A spinoff about the wolf packs would be greatness!!! Count me in!

A spinoff for Renesmee would be cool

Gracii Nava says:

Definitely, Alice! She has been one of my favorite characters since the beginning.

Mary Gwen Reyes says:

Wpuld love to see a spinoff for Alice!

A Native American spinoff of Jacobs tribe.
