To remove all confusion, we have listed the Twilight movies in order. If you plan to re-watch the whole franchise, you should do it in the following order.

At her 18th birthday party, which Edward’s family organized, Bella gets a paper cut. The smell of her blood triggers Edward’s foster brother Jasper to attack her, but others stop him. Seeing Bella in danger, Edward decides to go away from her life.

On the other hand, we learn that Jacob and his tribe members are werewolves, the natural enemies of Vampires. They are on high alert for a vampire named Victoria, who seeks revenge for James’ death. Edward killed James in the first film. In the rest of the movie, we see Edward trying to end his life and Bella saving him. She tells Edward about her interest in becoming a vampire.

On the other hand, Jacob confesses his love for Bella and tries to get her away from him. The Cullens and the werewolves come together to defeat Victoria and her army. The second half of the film is all about the big fight. Volturi, the group monitoring vampire activities, pressurizes the Cullens to turn Bella into a vampire.

4. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 (2011)

The Twilight Saga- Breaking Dawn- Part 1 (2011)

Breaking Dawn, based on the last novel by Stephanie Meyer, was divided into two movies. In the first part, we see Bella and Edward getting married. Jacob couldn’t take the news of their marriage and flees the town. However, he comes back, which leaves Bella surprised.

Bella’s life is changed drastically after getting pregnant, which everyone considers impossible. She was asked to abort the child as it can be dangerous for a human body to birth a vampire child. However, she doesn’t listen to anyone and sticks to her decision. Meanwhile, Jacob’s tribe is divided into two, with one group wanting to kill Bella’s newborn and the other half wanting to save the child. Ultimately, we see Bella delivering her child and losing her life. She then comes back to life as a vampire.

Unlike an average child, Renesmee’s growth is rapid. A vampire named Irina suspects that Renesmee is a vampire girl and informs the Volturi.

The rest of the story is about Volturi trying to kill the child and the Cullens’ attempt to protect her. The second part of Breaking Dawn was short and proved to be better than the previous movies in the franchise.

The Twilight saga was among the most popular franchises in the last 2000s. After many years, people still talk about Twilight movies and compare them with other vampire movies and shows. If you want to re-watch the Twilight saga, watch it in the given order.
