Explaining all the Breaking Dawn Renesmees

Breaking Dawn's Renesmee will be played by 10-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy. She is Renesmee.  However, she will also be played by three other young actresses -- Eliza Faria will play Renesmee at age 5, Rachel St. Gelais will play Renesmee at age 6, and Sierra Pitkin will play the oldest Renesmee -- but not the way you might think. After all, it wouldn't be much fun to watch a character whose face is completely different every time she ages in a flash.

So special effects artists that also worked on Avatar, behind the movie are going to superimpose Mackenzie Foy's face on the three other actresses' bodies in the scenes where she is at varying ages/sizes. The digital effects used will be similar to those used on Brad Pitt in the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

This also means that there are more baby size Renesmees that have been cast, that we haven't heard of yet, to close the gap from birth to age 5.  Or are we going from the birth to age 5 in a flash in Breaking Dawn?  That is a little food for thought.

   Age 5 Renesmee-Eliza Faria               Age 6 Renesmee-Rachel St. Gelais      Older Renesmee-Sierra Pitkin
















But we won't see these adorable little faces, cause they will have McKenzie Foy's cute face transposed on theirs.

they're all so cute but i'm team Mackenzie altough she is a little too old to play Renesmee she is the one that looks the most like Rob and Kristen.

the other 3 girls arent AS cut as Kenzie but Kenzie's too old..they should have just got a smart 3 or 4 year old..really not that hard to find..

I always knew that bringing Renesmee to 'life' was going to a real challenge.  There would simply be no one little girl who could grow from birth to 7 or so during the course of filming the movie.  I think Bill Condon has accepted the challenge and is going to do a great job.  He also has some topnotch special effects people on board, so I have confidence that it will be the best it can be.

Now i am just nervous. It kind of sounds a little creepy to me. I hope it all works out.

I dont know where this information comes from (but i have heard it a lot of places on the web). 

But I cant see how it's easier to put kenzies face on another body, than just make all of her body smaller digitally? Other than that would make the acting more defficult if the body and face dont act together.

It would make more sense if all these small Renesmees were bodydoubles for makenzie (like the hobbit bodydoubles in LOTR) and are used when you see her from behind together with others or from a distance.

Don't know if that made sense :P I just can't wait to see Mackenzie in action. she's a cutie
