It’s billed as “The epic finale that will live forever,” and on Friday, November 16, millions of fans of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga will find out how the supernatural soap opera wraps up, as Breaking Dawn — Part 2 hits movie theatres across the U.S. (If you can’t wait, 10:00 p.m. screenings will take place tomorrow).
Thanks to Twilight, we’re probably stuck with more female dogs and cats named Bella, but upon scanning the cast of characters, several bear names that would also be prefect for a pooch or feline. Just imagine how cool you’d be walking a wolf-like dog named Jacob (“Doesn’t he have a shirt?”).
