How to watch ALL Twilight Movies in Order



David has been watching TV outside of his home country for over 12 years. In addition to his streaming expertise, he has a wealth of experience in watching sports and documentaries, having spent many years following these genres. He is an avid fan of The Detectorists and Blue Planet, and also has a keen interest in English football.

The Twilight movie franchise had it all. Horror, drama, romance, beautiful actors, amazing special effects, the list goes on and on.

Little wonder then that ten years on from the final movie in the series, they are still attracting huge audiences and holding onto their legion of loyal and dedicated fans.

Apart from the occasional retrospective, you can’t really watch the Twilight movies in the cinema anymore. So, what can you do if you want to watch not just one Twilight movie but relive the entire series in order? Or even watch them for the very first time?

That’s what this article is all about because it is now possible to watch all the Twilight movies, in order, from the comfort of your own home.

So, if you want to settle down on the sofa and binge-watch the entire Twilight series of movies, keep reading because we are going to tell you everything you need to know.

Where are all Twilight movies available to watch?

The good news is that the entire Twilight series is now available to watch on Netflix.

That means that you don’t need multiple subscriptions to various different online streaming services.

Neither do you need to flick between different apps or websites to watch the Twilight movie series in order.

The only thing you need is a Netflix account. There is a cost involved in that, which will vary a bit depending on where in the world you are.

This is sadly unavoidable, but the good news is that as soon as you have signed up, you are free to watch all of the Twilight movies as often as you like.

How to watch the Twilight movies in chronological order

With some movies, it can be hard to work out which order to watch them in. This is usually because there are so many spin-offs and prequels to contend with.

Star Wars is notorious for this, but thankfully we have a handy guide on how to watch Star Wars in order too!

So, in that respect, Twilight is a refreshing change because this movie franchise keeps things nice and simple.

It is a simple movie series with five movies which can be watched in the order in which they were released.

In fact, the only real decision you as a Twilight viewer need to make is whether to read the Twilight books by author Stephenie Meyer before or after you watch the films.

What is the best order to Watch Twilight movies in order?

As we touched on above, the best order to watch the Twilight movie series is in the order in which they were released.

This chronological release order also matches the order in which the books that inspired the films were published.

The only slight anomaly that you might encounter involves the final book in the series, called Breaking Dawn. This was published as a single book but was actually made into two movies.

But it’s not too complicated as both movies carry the name Breaking Dawn and are helpful titled Part One and Part Two, which should make it pretty obvious which order to watch them in.

Which Netflix libraries are the Twilight movies available in?

At the present time, Netflix users in the following countries can enjoy all of the Twilight movie series in their local Netflix library:

  • Argentina
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Columbia

The Twilight Movie Series

The five films that make up the Twilight movie series are all unique and special in their own way, and while they each tell an individual story with a beginning, a middle, and an end, they also work together to tell an overarching tale packed with fascinating characters, plotlines, drama, romance, and more.

In this section, we will go through each of the movies in order and tell you a little about each of them.

We will do our best not to include spoilers, but if you really want to come to the Twilight movie series fresh, you might want to skip this section.


  • Release Date: 2008
  • Writers: Melissa Rosenberg, Stephenie Meyer
  • Director: Catherine Hardwicke

Twilight was released to huge hype in 2008 following the massive success of the Twilight book series written by Stephenie Meyer.

Meyer co-wrote the screenplay to the movie too, and Catherine Hardwicke was chosen to direct, although it would be the only movie in the series she would work on.

In the movie, we are introduced to a whole host of beautiful young vampires, but the focus is the relationship between Bella Swan, a teenager, and Edward Cullen, a vampire, and the subsequent efforts of Edward and his extended family to keep Bella safe from another family of evil vampires.

Needless to say, they fall in love, but will Edward be able to keep her alive or will she become a vampire just like him?

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

  • Release Date: 2009
  • Writers: Melissa Rosenberg, Stephenie Meyer
  • Director: Chris Weitz

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is the sequel to both the original book and the original movie. Given the huge commercial success of the original movie, it is no surprise that this sequel was rushed out in a hurry just one year later.

Chris Weitz, renowned for his work on films like About a Boy and American Pie, was on direction duty and brings a very different mood and atmosphere with him.

In the film, after Edward and Bella split up for her own safety, she encounters a pack of werewolves, and much drama ensues as she tries to stop Edward from revealing himself to the world.

Will they manage to get back together? You have to watch to find out.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

  • Release Date: 2010
  • Writers: Melissa Rosenberg, Stephenie Meyer
  • Director: David Slade

The third movie in the Twilight series sees the same writing team but yet another new director, with British director David Slade this time taking the helm.

The movie starts with Bella and Edward at odds over whether they should marry so young. But their love is going to come under threat, with both Jacob and the Werewolves and Jasper, another vampire, competing for her affections.

Can their relationship survive?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

  • Release Date: 2011
  • Writers: Melissa Rosenberg, Stephenie Meyer
  • Director: Bill Condon

Bill Condon takes the helm for the fourth movie in the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn Part One.

This one is set just a few months after the previous movie in the series and sees Edward and Bella on the day of their wedding. Not long after the happy day, Bella believes she is pregnant.

But things go badly wrong, and Bella’s very life is at stake. Can Edward save her?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

  • Release Date: 2012
  • Writers: Melissa Rosenberg, Stephenie Meyer
  • Director: Bill Condon

It makes sense for part two of the Breaking Dawn story to be told by the same director who was at the helm for the first part, so it’s good to see Bill Condon back for this movie too.

The plot sees Bella awaken and meet her daughter for the first time. But what exactly is her daughter? The suspicions that she is an immortal child is not just bad news for her but potentially for everyone!

Who stars in the Twilight movies?

Over five movies, there are a great many actors who took on both recurring roles and guest roles in the Twilight movie franchise. In this section, we will profile just a few of the biggest names that appear in the movie series:

Kristen Stewart – Bella

The main role of Bella is played by Kristen Stewart. These movies were her breakthrough really, but she did hold some roles as a child actor in such movies as Panic Room, Catch That Kid, and Into the Wild.

As an adult, she has also appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman, Camp X-Ray, Charlie’s Angels, and Spencer, among many other high-profile and low-budget movies.

Robert Pattinson – Edward Cullen

Robert Pattinson was already well-known among young movie-goers for his role as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

During and after the Twilight franchise, he has made his name as an A-lister with appearances in such movies as Water for Elephants, Cosmopolis, The Lost City of Z, High Life, and Tenet. He has also played Batman in the movie The Batman.

Taylor Lautner – Jacob Black

Taylor Lautner began his career with bit parts in comedy shows like The Bernie Mac Show and My Wife and Kids, as well as doing voiceovers.

His Twilight roles made him a teenage sex symbol and, subsequently, took on roles in movies such as Abduction, Grown Ups 2, and The Ridiculous 6. He has also appeared in TV shows including Cuckoo and Scream Queens.

Billy Burke – Charlie Swan

Billy Burke was a well-established actor before Twilight, with credits including Party of Five, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Ladder 49.

He has subsequently appeared in Drive Angry, NBC series Revolution, and Chicago P.D., among plenty of other roles

Jackson Rathbone – Jasper Hale

Prior to Twilight, Jackson Rathbone had appeared in shows like The O.C. and Beautiful People, as well as movies including Molding Clay and Pray for Morning.

Since his big break in Twilight, he has appeared in the likes of Horseshoe Theory and Condors Nest, as well as fronting his funk band called 100 Monkeys.

Guest stars

Among the legion of guest stars that appeared in the Twilight franchise were MyAnna Buring (The Descent, Kill List), Rami Malek (Mr Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody), Charlie Bewley (Nashville, The Vampire Diaries) and Dakota Fanning (The Cat in the Hat, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).

Plus Michael Sheen (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, The Damned United), Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd, Mortal Instruments City of Bones), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village, Jurassic World), and many more.

Will there be any more Twilight movies?

At the moment, there are no plans to make any more Twilight movies that we are aware of.

The last movie of the series was made in 2012, and there has been no indication in any of the past decade that another movie was in the offing.

However, in more recent times, there has been the tantalising prospect that another Twilight movie could emerge at some point in the future.

In 2020, Stephenie Meyer published a new book entitled Midnight Sun, which retold the story of the original book from the perspective of Edward rather than Bella.

This new perspective of the original story could tempt movie makers into revisiting the Twilight world once again at some point. But, to date, there are no plans in the offing that we are aware of.

Did you know?

If this article hasn’t already tempted you in to watch the Twilight movies in order, we are going to round things off with a few fascinating facts about the Twilight franchise that you probably didn’t know:

Did you know… Robert Pattinson really plays piano

Yes, that’s right. In the scene where Edward is playing “Bella’s Lullaby” in the first Twilight movie, that really is actor Robert Pattinson tinkling the ivories.

Did you know… Pattinson’s method approach

OK, so he didn’t become a vampire but when Pattinson was cast in the role, he moved to Oregon and spent five hours a day working with a trainer on his physique and learning how to fight, to play baseball, and even to drive and speak Portuguese.

In the weeks leading up to the filming of the first movie, Pattinson didn’t talk to anyone to help him feel isolated like his character. He also learned to drive a boat for Breaking Dawn Part 1.

Did you know… Pattinson’s own songs are in the film

… and it’s all thanks to co-star Nikki Read. She secretly recorded him singing and playing guitar behind the scenes and showed her recordings to the production team. They loved what they saw and persuaded Pattinson to let them use his songs in the movie.

Did you know… Kristen Stewart is wearing a wig

And it’s all down to time constraints. It was decided that by getting her to wear hair pieces, more time could be saved to shoot the movie rather than have Stewart doing her hair all the time.

Did you know… Kristen Stewart turned 18 during the filming of the first movie

She was rewarded by the cast and crew with a birthday cake but then had to do an all-night filming session. On her birthday!

Did you know… Michael Sheen’s family preparation

When he was cast in the series, Welsh actor Michael Sheen knew nothing about Twilight, so his daughter, who is a huge fan, had to brief him.

Did you know… Twilight’s wig dilemmas

Ashley Greene wig was different to the one she wore in Twilight to play Alice Cullen and she also cut her hair quite short so that it could fit under the wig. Meanwhile Taylor Lautner hated his long-haired wig.

Kristen Stewart also wore a wig for the third film in the series, Eclipse, after cutting her hair short for another movie, The Runaways.

Did you know… Ratings woes

Breaking Dawn: Part One was originally rated R because of the sex scene between Edward and Bella. The scene had to be reshot and toned down to get the PG-13 rating it was eventually awarded.

Did you know… Pregnancy effects

Breaking Dawn: Part One had over 1,400 special effects. But the majority of these were to make Kristen Stewart look pregnant.


The Twilight movie is an exceptional franchise consisting of five movies. And the good news for both fans and newcomers is that they are all available to watch right now on Netflix.
