Back when I reviewed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, I admired the saga’s balance of tones (I gave the film a 75, and still stand by it to this day) but I absolutely hated the film’s cheap CG effects. For the first half of the film (after Bella’s creepy vampire baby was born), the baby was CG rendered since for some reason the baby reeeeeeeeeally had to look like Mackenzie Foy, the young girl who played the creepy vampire girl.
Apparently, it could have been much worse. Yahoo has unearthed an extra from the recent Complete Saga Blu-ray that shows off Baby Renesmee’s original animatronic version. Holy sh*t. Just watch the video. Twilight 5 could’ve been much worse.[via Yahoo]
