Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made a powerful vampire team as Edward and Bella Cullen in “Breaking Dawn, Part 2” because of their special powers. A new behind-the-scenes video shows how filmmakers made vampire powers come to life in the movie.

The last of the “Twilight” saga pictures included an epic showdown between the Volturi, the Cullens and the clans that supported Edward’s family.

Edward summons the friendly vampire clans to protect half-human, half-vampire daughter Renesmee played by MacKenzie Foy. In the end, they hoped to convince the ruling Volturi that she was born and not bitten, avoiding a bloody confrontation.

To film the epic battle, 30 new vampires, each backed by their own coven and sporting unique powers, were added to the film.

The new behind-the-scenes video was added to the special edition DVD sold at Target stores.

Kate from the Denali Coven is one of the featured vampires in the clip. You may recall, she has the power to cause people extreme pain, sort of like an electric shock, explains Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.

Casey LaBow, who played Kate, walks through the devices she had to wear to create the effect of electricity flowing through her hands. Watch her zap Edward!

Zafrina from the Amazon Coven has the power to control what people see. “When she first comes to the Cullens she shows Edward the rain forest, which is where she’s from with all the beautiful scenery,” explains Judi Shekoni, who played Zafrina.

“It’s so real. If you weren’t holding my hand I’d believe it,” says Robert to Kristen as the stand in front of a large green screen. It’s used to add the images later in the film editing process.

The magic behind the movie is almost as interesting as the movie itself. In the battle, Zafrina blinds three people… or at least makes them think they’re blind.
