"It's All Just Icing on the Cake"

EW.com posted a very informative and (for me) exciting article on the reshoots and new scenes going down for Twilight the Movie:

Thus, a few key aspects of the production are getting further attention. One redone scene shows Edward (Robert Pattinson) playing Bella's lullaby. During the movie's initial shoot, Pattinson performed the scene while improvising with his own music; now he's playing the actual song, which has been written by veteran film composer Carter Burwell (best known for working with the Coen brothers). "[Pattinson] is a great pianist, long vampire fingers," Hardwicke says. And if that doesn't whet your appetite, Hardwicke also reshot the bedroom kissing scene on Thursday. The first time around, Kristen Stewart, the actress who plays Bella, was still 17, and between juggling three hours of school work per day plus numerous camera setups, the scene was never finished. Hardwicke also shot a few new scenes: more of Jacob, more on the Cullens' backstory, and more footage in the meadow. Says the director, "It's all just icing on the cake."

It truly doesn't seem like they are trying to hastily cover up any mistakes or shove more stuff in because there are cracks. No, it definitely feels like Summit, Catherine, and company have fully absorbed the enormity of this project and want it to be the best quality for us bouncy fans. It has me pumped. Robert's improvization would have been nice to see, but at least he will still be using his wonderful musical talents. And, uh, a vamped up (no pun intended) kissing scene? Yes, please! I'm glad they decided Jacob needed a bit more love, too, but mostly because it hints at a promising future for further films. Jacob Shmacob, I'll take an order of dazzling vampire by the name of Edward. I am especially intrigued by this whole "Cullen backstory" deal. In Twilight, Edward only delved into the history of his family briefy, so it will be cool to see some flashbacks of the olden days. And more footage in the meadow, hallelujah! We all know how important that Bella and Edward moment is! *sparkle, sparkle*
