Final Two Divergent Series Movies Get New Names And Logos.

Lionsgate has retitled the final two films of its “Divergent” franchise, “The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 1” and “The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 2.” The third film in the Shailene Woodley franchise is now going by the name “The Divergent Series: Allegiant” and is scheduled to open March 18, 2016. After the Earth-shattering revelations of Insurgent, Allegiant’s Tris (Woodley) must escape with Four (James) beyond the Wall that encircles Chicago to finally discover the shocking truth of what lies behind it. The Divergent Series follows Tris (Shailene Woodley), who lives in an oppressive society where citizens are defined and categorized by personality type. Both movies are based on Veronica Roth’s “Allegiant,” the third novel in her “Divergent” trilogy, which begins with the Faction system being dismantled.

Series author Veronica Roth admitted she’s both nervous and excited about the conclusion to the franchise, because with the new names come new changes. I lost a good deal of interest in the Divergent films after Insurgent and haven’t been particularly hopeful about Allegiant considering the quality of the source material, but this title change could be a sign that the writers are making the appropriate alterations. Both films are also getting new taglines: Allegiant’s new tagline is “break the boundaries of your world,” while Ascendant promises that “the end is never what you expect. Well, basically, it means there are going to be some changes, but it’s really too early to know exactly what those changes will be or the extent of them. Readers were so incensed that Roth felt compelled to write a lengthy defense of her ending shortly after the book’s release: “I thought about reaching out with my authorial hand and snatching her from that terrible situation”.

Though Roth points out that it’s still too soon to say what form those changes might take — Ascendant doesn’t hit theaters until March 24, 2017 — if you’ve read her series, it’s tough to keep from wondering whether the films might decide to throw out Allegiant’s original, bleak ending for something a little more, well, Ascendant.
