Since then three more movies have followed and the franchise has grossed in excess of $2.5 million at the worldwide box office.
But the moment that all Twi-hards have been dreading will be upon us this winter as The Twilight Saga comes to a triumphant end.
It was back in November of last year when Edward and Bella finally tied the knot but it wasn't long before their honeymoon was shattered as Bella discovers that she is pregnant.
The end of the first part of Breaking Dawn saw Bella adamant to have her child and battles to keep the baby and herself alive.
Already we have been given some great tasters to Breaking Dawn - Part 2 with teaser trailers, posters as well as first look images.
Directed by Bill Condon once again the movie sees Bella and Edward face danger once again as they are forced to call on other vampire clans in a bid to protect their young daughter from the Volturi.
While Stewart, Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and co will all be back Mackenzie Foy is one of the new faces on the cast list as she takes on the role of Renesmee.
And while it may be the final instalment there are new characters galore are introduced for the final showdown.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 promises to be the biggest movie of the franchise so far and already there is great anticipation around this release.
So far none of the movies in the franchise has broken the magical billion dollar barrier but this final instalment could be the most successful yet.
The Twilight Saga: breaking Dawn - part 2 is released 16th November.
