One of the creepier parts from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, aside from a grown man falling in love with a baby, was the very strange CG-created face that was grafted onto the child actors playing Bella and Edward’s offspring Renesmee. It was downright weird, but it turns out that things could have been a whole lot creepier. A new extra from the Twilight Forever Blu-ray box set reveals the animatronic version of Renesmee that was initially used on set for filming before eventually being tossed out. The nickname for the doll was “Chuckesmee”, and it became clear that this thing was absolutely horrifying and would never work onscreen. All of this was done in service to the source material, which describes the child as aging very rapidly. The disturbing result begs the question: how did no one realize this was a terrible idea sooner?
