In New Moon, based on the second of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling vampire novels, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Pattinson), but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).

She suddenly finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

New Moon is now shooting and opens Nov. 20.
