“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” will be the second to the last installment in the YA movie franchise, which will feature the return of Theo James and Shailene Woodley as Tobias Eaton and Beatrice Prior, respectively. Filming has already concluded for the cast and crew, but several fans are still crossing their fingers hoping that things would change for a certain character.
This article contains spoilers for “Divergent: Allegiant” movie. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Allegiant” movie cast and crew have recently wrapped up on set and shared several snapshots of their last filming day in social media. While the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” series is still months away from hitting the theatres, fans are already fidgeting to know whether or not Shailene Woodley’s character, Tris, gets to live on in the end.
As most book fans of Roth’s series know, Tris sacrifices herself and dies at the end of the series. Several fans started an online petition in hopes of changing Tris’ fate – at least in the movie version of the YA book.
While the ending to the “Divergent” series will only be revealed in the last installment, “The Divergent Series: Ascendant,” Roth explained in a previous interview with MTV the reason for creating such an ending to the series.
“The Divergent Series” author explained that Tris’ death was “necessary” especially after going through so much in the first two books, “Divergent” and “Insurgent.” Tris almost died in the first book after being confined inside a water tank, then in the second book, Tris was almost killed by James’ character, Four.
“It has to be about love… it felt like it was her finally understanding what her parents were trying to teach her in Abnegation and finally understanding what it means to be an adult and make a grown up decision because you have to, not because you particularly want to,” she said.
Meanwhile, the “Allegiant Collector’s Edition” will be released on Oct. 6, which will feature deleted scenes and excerpts, including those from Natalie Prior’s journal and Tris and Peter’s scenes, EW reported.
“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” premieres on Mar. 18, 2016 in theatres.
