A human child couldn't pull off the facial expressions
Nessie is supposed to be one of a kind, not averege human child
If they choose a human, everyone will disagree about the look
CGI human will be a technological achievement
CGI would look more like Edward and Bella
There are already CGI wolves. Robert and Kristen are good at acting with CGI
While CGI will cost more, it will look better!
Newborn babies are not the size of two year olds, but Nessie can smile and has teeth right out of the womb, unlike a human newborn. CGI could do teeth and smiles
Feel free to keep the list going!
More of a 3-D effect will fit better than just a human child
Nessie grows bigger everday!
Actresses will look either too old or not enough like Edward and Bella
No amount of money put into this film would have made this film any better.
If only all that money was spent on a better makeup team!
To watch fan girls try to rationalize yet another horrible decision in a horrible movie franchise
Because the director really wanted to be different and "get it right" when the CGI is worse then any child actor they could have cast.
Because tweens don't care if the film has substance or CGI. They can't tell the difference anyway.
Because I needed another reason to never see this movie.
Hitler needs a CGI vessel for his soul
edward and bella are alredy so fake the only baby they could have was CGI
To make her seem even creepier
Because they couldn't find an ugly enough potato.
To draw attention away from the god awful script
Because it's illegal to show babies from non-mixed parentage in Hollywood films
Because have you seen the video on the anamatronic baby they were going to use? HOLY CRAP. It was devil spawn.
Why waste all that money on shitty CGI when you can just use a regular baby and say it's Renesmee? That would look more real.
