Team Jacob or Team Edward? Either way, binge your way through all five movies

If you're a fan of teenage love stories, then you're probably a Twi-hard, and it's never a wrong time for a Twilight movie binge. But even if you've never seen the films, the idea of watching them from beginning to end could be appealing. The story, by Stephanie Meyers, is one that captured hearts of millions and includes some pretty amazing special effects.

So, what order do you watch the movies in? Read on to find out.

How to Watch the Twilight Movies in Order

They may be a little confusion around the order of the Twilight movies because the vampire-human love story is based on a series of four books published between 2005 - 2008. Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn were released to fan who devoured them faster than a Cullen can move. But many were surprised to find there are five movies.

That's because the last book, Breaking Dawn, had to be broken into two movies. There was so much happening in the story that filmmakers didn't feel they could do it justice with just one film. Instead, there are two. However, watching the movies in order is still easy enough. They should be watch in the order they were released, which is the same order in which the books were released. And all the movies are available on Amazon Prime exclusively as of this writing.

There were two other installments of the Twilight Saga, as well: Midnight Sun, a retelling of Twilight from Edward's point-of-view; and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Neither of them have been released in movie form, and as of this writing, there are no public plans to make movies from these two offshoot stories.
