The Twilight movies–starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner–took the world by storm when they reigned supreme over the teen demographic at the box office in the late 2000s-early 2010s.
Based on the best-selling book series by Stephenie Meyer, the films spanned into the saga of Bella Swan’s romance with the vampire Edward Cullen. Their relationship snowballed into a paranormal fantasy that grew to include Jacob Black and the Quileute werewolves that protect the reservation.
If you were a teen back when these books and movies were at the peak of pop culture, there was no escaping the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob fervor. Though perhaps you were team Switzerland or, as many fans became as they grew older, Team Bella.
Now the films are available to stream on Netflix. If you’re ready to gear up for a movie marathon, here’s how many Twilight movies are on the streamer.
The Twilight movies on Netflix
You’re in luck, Netflix Lifers! All five movies in the saga have landed on the streamer at once. From Twilight to Breaking Dawn Part 2, let us refresh your memory or catch you up on what to expect from each movie.
When Bella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her dad Charlie, she’s prepared for overcast skies and rainy days not a family of vampires. But that’s the discovery she makes after she’s partnered with Edward Cullen in biology. Though he thirsts for her blood, Edward also feels a connection to Bella. It’s a connection that’s liable to drag her into danger as a human and a vampire can’t possibly be together, right?
Bella and Edward defeated the odds in Twilight. It should be a time to celebrate and fall deeper in love but, unable to shake the danger Bella is put in by being around vampires, Edward makes a decision that changes their relationship. It’s a move that pushes Bella closer to her friend Jacob Black, the son of her Dad’s friend Billy, and opens a new world to her.
However, this world is no safer than Edward’s, and when a blast from their past rolls back into town seeking revenge, Bella’s going to need all the help she can get to stay alive. The only problem is Edward is nowhere to be found, and the plans he has for himself could separate them forever or bring a new danger to their doorstep.
The events of New Moon have everyone on edge. They weren’t able to neutralize the threat gunning for Bella and now the werewolves and vampires must band together to keep everyone safe. The problem, however, is that the two species despise each another and Jacob’s none to happy with the state Edward left Bella in.
They’ll need to put their differences aside to come out on top, however, that’ll be hard in the face of Jacob’s love for Bella and a decision she has to make for herself. A human’s life span goes by in the blink of an eye for a vampire. Can Bella truly stay human if her choice is Edward? And what about Jacob and Charlie? Is she really willing to walk away from everyone she loves?
Breaking Dawn Part 1
Life has come fast at Bella Swan ever since she moved to Forks, Washington. Targeted by vampires, protected by werewolves, she’s a human girl surrounded by the impossible. Now that she’s made her choice and decided her future, it’ll come at a price that’s liable to take her life with it. But, she’s determined. If Bella can stand up to this test and put aside everybody else’s fears, then she’ll be granted one of the greatest gifts love can give. That is, of course, if her body can handle the strain.
Breaking Dawn Part 2
Bella is stronger than ever in the final movie of theTwilight saga. Brimming with new life, a happy family, and a love that’s gotten her through the worst possible situations, she’s content. Restless, itching to hone her skills, but content nonetheless.
Jacob is in her life in a way she least expected, bringing with him a new set of challenges, but things are good. At least until the seeds of Edward’s decisions in New Moon that spiraled into bigger troubles in Eclipse, come back into play. When the Volturi come knocking at your door do you run or do you fight?
The Twilight movies are available to stream now on Netflix.
