Official images of the Volturi from "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" have been revealed by Summit Entertainment. Unlike the previous picture which gave out only head shots of the coven's five essential members, these new photos capture Aro, Marcus, Caius, Jane and Alec in individual character stills.

The first looks at those characters are each shared exclusively by MySpace, Moviefone, MTV, Examiner and Yahoo! Movies. MySpace brings out Dakota Fanning's Jane, Moviefone presents Jamie Campbell Bower's Caius, MTV unveils Cameron Bright's Alec, and Examiner puts out Christopher Heyerdahl's Marcus. Yahoo!, in the meantime, gives out Michael Sheen's Aro.

Along with the unraveling of these Volturi members, Summit included director Chris Weitz's explanation about this powerful vampire coven. "No matter how strange one of the characters is in a work of fantasy, I think you have to approach them as people and then so you start to think, 'They've been around for 2,000 years. How would they interact with one another?' The conclusion was that after 2,000 years you'd probably be more than mildly insane. No matter how cultured or gracious you appear on the surface," so he said.

"And I think that's what Michael Sheen managed to portray as Aro, the head of the Volturi - on the surface he's terribly gracious, warm, a wonderful host and at the same time he's lethal and frightening," Weitz further explained. "It's also what Dakota Fanning conveys as Jane. She's innocent looking in appearance but she's absolutely deadly."

Targeting a November 20 U.S. release, "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" is penned by "Twilight Saga" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and directed by "The Golden Compass" helmer Chris Weitz. It centers on the personal conflict Bella experiences following Edward Cullen's abrupt departure. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner return to reprise their roles as Edward Cullen, Bella Swan and Jacob Black.

AnnaSophia Robb would have been a better Jane because she has more of the "angelic" face like she was described in te book. Besides I'm pretty sick of seeing Dakota Fanning everywhere.

I really hate Dakota Fanning. She does though look like a great Jane, but I just plainly hate her acting skills, and think she will ruin New Moon. TEAM EDWARD
