5 Facts About Jacob Black and His Family Even ‘Twilight’ Fans May Not Know

Published

on

When Twilight first came on the scene, it became a huge phenomenon across the world. Fans were enamored by the dramatic triangle between Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black.  Jacob, a teenage wolf, was a part of the Quileute tribe along with his family. However, there are still some interesting revelations about the Black family that you may not know.

Werewolf Where?

Throughout the Twilight series, many fans believed that Jacob and his family were all werewolves. That’s actually not the case. Werewolves automatically change into their ravenous appearance during a full moon. However, the Quileute tribe are “shape-shifters” and are able to control their transformations and behavior. So no, Jacob is not a werewolf.

Native Roots

Producers worked hard to match the films with the books, including with the Black family lineage. They specifically cast actors with Native American blood for the Black family and the rest of the Quileute tribe. In facts, actors had to prove their lineage before being a part of the films.

Twilight Without Taylor Lautner?

Fans of the books were not impressed when Taylor Lautner was cast as Jacob Black in the first Twilight film. Lautner was much smaller than Jacob was written to be. Producers began to share the same concerns, and almost recast him. However, Lautner was able to bulk up before filming began, and the rest is history.

The Blacks And Cullens Were Once Civil

In the movies, the Black and Cullen families kept to a peace treaty, but they pretty much hated each other. However, previous generations within the families actually trusted the other side. There were no heated arguments. As the years went on though, that trust was lost, leading to the Black family despising the Cullens.

So Much For Self-Healing

The Blacks were definitely a tough, fighting family. In the heat of battle, though, they have gotten hurt pretty badly. Unlike vampires, who can heal themselves pretty quickly if ever injured, the shape-shifters don’t have that ability at all. Unfortunately, that’s a major con in the middle of a fight.
