The film sequel Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 3 is due for imminent release.

On 18 December 2014, the web site Daily Buzz Live published an article positing a new addition to the Twilight movie franchise was in production and would be released on 14 November 2015:

Breaking Dawn Pt 3 — Jacob And Renesmee — November 14, 2015.

Get ready Twilight Fans! The love story between Jacob and Renesmee will hit the big screen next year on November 14, 2015. And we have a sneak peek for you!

Soon afterwards links and excerpts referencing this article were being circulated via social media, with many of those who encountered the item mistaking it for a genuine news article. However, the article was just a bit of satire from Daily Buzz Live, a web site that publishes fictional stories such as "Starbucks Apologizes for Serving Satanic Coffee to Catholic Teacher," and "Get Ready: Obama to Implement the New American Currency Called the 'Amero.'"

Daily Buzz Live's disclaimer notes the site offers items that are not news, but rather fictional reports "inspired" by real events.

(The only ongoing Twilight movie project announced so far involves short films detailing selected characters' backstories.)

David Mikkelson founded the site now known as snopes.com back in 1994.
