"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2" was the final film in a five-movie series that encompassed the four books of Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" book series. The other four were "Twilight," "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1."
In the final chapter of the "Twilight Saga," Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), and their friends work to defend the couple's child, Renesmee, after a misunderstanding threatens their family.
As Wikipedia says,
The vampire Irina (Maggie Grace) misidentifies Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) as an "immortal child", a child who has been turned into a vampire, and because immortal children are uncontrollable, creating them has been outlawed by the Volturi. After Irina presents her allegation to the Volturi, they plan to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens.
In an attempt to survive, the Cullens gather other vampire clans from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Renesmee is not an immortal child.
In addition, we know that werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) imprints on Renesmee, the process by which a werewolf finds his soul mate.
