‘Divergent: Allegiant’ Movie Update: Theo James and Shailene Woodley React on the Shocking Ending
“Divergent: Allegiant – Part One” is still months away from seeing the return of Theo James as Tobias ‘Four’ Eaton and Shailene Woodley as Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior, but fans of Veronica Roth’s series are already wondering if the ending will be changed for the movie. James and Woodley revealed their thoughts on the shocking ending to the last and final installment to the “Divergent” series.
This contains spoilers for the upcoming “Allegiant” movie. Read on if you want to learn more about this scoop.
Fans of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” series are already aware of how things would end up for Four and Tris in the last installment of the book series titled, “Allegiant.” Tris ended up dead in the book series, which caused many fans to start a petition on Change.org to offer a different ending in the movie.
While many fans still can’t accept the fact that Shailene Woodley’s character would still end up dead in “Divergent: Allegiant,” the 23-year-old actress shared her thoughts on the shocking ending of Veronica Roth’s series.
“I think that it’s a beautiful decision that Veronica made. I mean, how often is it that somebody you really admire and who does take selfless risks everyday ends up living,” Woodley told Digital Spy.
Woodley’s leading man in “Allegiant,” Theo James, on the other hand, shared the same sentiments and admitted that Tris’ death seemed “totally natural.”
“Tris’ character is, it’s all about self-sacrifice… It would be strange if you just saw Four and her in the end like smoking cigars and hanging out with their kids and their dog,” the 30-year-old actor said.
It does not look like “Divergent: Allegiant – Part Two” will be having a different ending, as Roth has previously addressed these ongoing petitions to change the ending of the movie in an interview with Vulture.
“I wrote ‘Allegiant’ that way because I thought that was the way it needed to be told, and so I feel very strongly about it, obviously. I know people feel strongly about it, too, and that’s fine,” Roth said.
“Divergent: Allegiant – Part 1” airs on March 18, 2016.
