Twilight Character Alice Cullen's Dark Backstory Was Deleted From The Movies.

“Twilight’s” Alice Cullen, born Mary Alice Brandon, has one of the most interesting backstories of any of the Cullen family. The movies highlight the importance of Alice’s visions-- especially with the battle scene in “Breaking Dawn Part 2”-- but there’s still so much left unsaid about the psychic vampire’s human beginnings. For one, she had a terrible father who had her thrown in an asylum, where she lost her memories before finally meeting Jasper Hale. She was also able to adopt that “vegetarian” vamp lifestyle on her own, because she knew the Cullens were in her future. Someone this impressive should definitely have her own movie-- and not just “The Mary Alice Brandon File” short-film, even though it’s pretty incredible. 

Why Alice’s story never made it into the movies is mostly to do with time constraints and hiring all those extra actors, but there’s also a reason that makes sense to the story-- Alice can’t really remember her life as a human, so how would she be able to tell everyone about her deep, dark past? Still, a flashback of Alice's strange beginnings would have highlighted her incredible strength, and also her bond with Edward. Thankfully, Stephenie Meyer’s “Midnight Sun” gives us a deeper look at this bond and how much Edward Cullen really knew about Bella Swan and their future thanks to Alice. Let’s explore Alice’s tragic history and discuss how we might’ve known her better if her backstory had been a bigger part of the hit movie franchise.
