The Cullen Crest

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

I think what the crest means is that though lions usually eat meat, these "lions" are vegetarian
I love Harry Potter and Twilight.
Love hurts, as Bella, Edward, and now I know.
The only difference, Bella and Edward got love,
I'm willing to wait for eternity for my love.

I smell merchandising...!




But seriously, I don't really care about it. It's an interesting idea, but I would be perfectly content with or without it.

I agree.

I'm really excited about the crest. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I hadn't even noticed it in any of the picture before now.

But, as much as I hate that they are changing things for the movie, I find myself liking the idea of the crest. It is a good visual symbol of unity that will help to show family ties that we read about through Bella. Plus the look of the jewelry really seems to fit each of the people, I suppose it is a testament to how <i>right</i> it looked on them that I didn't notice it before.

As for merchandising...I'll have to wait and see it. While I like what Rosalie and Alice have I don't like it enough to want it no matter what. I'd have to see price and quality first. I really hope that they do a good job at a reasonable price that most fans can afford. It would be amazing to have one. Can't you imagine walking down the street and seeing someone else wearing a Cullen crest? It would be so cool!

I personally love the Crest, it seems like something Stephenie would've put in the book if she had thought of it. I really like it and I like that the changes they are making for the movie still fit with the book not like they are totally going off the dep end that it doesn't even relate to the book at all.

I would definitely buy Alice's choker or Esme's ring, Roaslie's necklace is beautiful but a little too big and guady for me. :lol:

It reminds me of the Hogwart's crest which was not important in those books, but I remember it being on shirts, bags, and other stuff.

It would be pretty cool if the Black family had some sort of "crest" as well.

A small charm of the crest would be nice because then you could choose to wear on a bracelet, necklace, or somewhere else.

I like the Cullen crest. It's a nice little extra for the movie. Plus, let's face it, it gives them something tangible to market. There aren't a lot of "things" in Twilight so adding in little extras like this gives them something to market that ties in with the movie. I'm sure that wasn't the original intent but it doesn't hurt.

I like how they all have slightly different versions of the crest. It's very personal. In my family, we all have our family crest either on jewelry or hanging in our house. It's a very realistic add-in, I think.

Mmm.... not a big fan of the Cullen crest...i think that its a little bit corny....and I think it would be cooler if it was just a small detail instead of a giant piece of jewelry. A bit obvious. But I guess we'll see how it plays out.

It's pretty funny that you said that. I love the crest but you don't see many people wearing that kind of stuff now a days. And since they are all are pretty much over 100 it's something that I think people would do in the old days when they were actually alive. So for it to be obvious is something that would be interesting to see if they explain. Cause they are trying to keep their secret well a secret. But then again it can just be another mystery that everyone overlooks.
