‘Divergent: Allegiant’ Movie Update: Will Shailene Woodley Die in the End or Will the Ending Be Changed in Response to Fans’ Requests?
“Divergent: Allegiant” is already gearing up for part one of its two-part finale in 2016. While the movie has considerably made quite a lot of changes in “Insurgent” from Veronica Roth’s book series, will the final installment to the franchise be also changed in response to the fans’ requests to let live Tris live on in the end? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Allegiant” is the third and final installment to the series based on the “Divergent” trilogy written by Veronica Roth. With most of the fans of the movie being avid readers of the book itself, fans are already well aware of how “Allegiant” will play in the end.
As most book fans already know, Shailene Woodley’s character, Tris ends up dead in the “Allegiant” book. Fans have begun setting up online petitions in an attempt to somewhat recreate the ending and see her character well and alive until the end together with her onscreen love interest, Four, played by Theo James.
Speaking to Vulture, Veronica Roth expressed her thoughts on these online petitions and explained the reason for such a tragic ending to the series.
“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,” she said.
While Roth insisted that the death of Tris was fitting for the story, she also said that she consulted Woodley on her thoughts about the ending of the story. The “Divergent” author said that Woodley “enjoyed the way that it ended.”
Theo James, on the other hand, spoke with Collider and said that while “Insurgent” had quite a lot of changes from the book, as it was being transpired into the big screen, “Allegiant” will not have as much changes.
“I think it’s gonna be pretty similar. I think the luxury of this one is that we have time to tell the book over two movies,” the 30-year-old actor said.
“Divergent: Allegiant” movie will be split into two parts. Part 1 will be released on March 18, 2016, while Part 2 is expected to hit theatres in 2017. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
