“Divergent: Allegiant” will no longer be called part one and part two, as new reports claim that the last and final installment to the franchise will have a different title. While Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Veronica Roth aired the same sentiments about the ending of the series, the title of the final installment seemingly offers hope that the ending will be changed in response to the fans’ request. Read on for more details.
Hours ago, the third and fourth installment to the “Divergent” franchise was popularly called as “Divergent: Allegiant – Part One” and “Divergent: Allegiant – Part Two.” However, MTV News recently broke out the news that the final two installments to the franchise will have a different title.
The first half to Veronica Roth’s “Allegiant” will be called as “Divergent: Allegiant” while the second half is titled, “Divergent: Ascendant.” The outlet noted that while both films will still be adapted from Roth’s third book in the series, the tagline for “Ascendant” seemed quite interesting.
“The End Is Never What You Expect,” the tagline read.

As previously reported on Movie News Guide, Roth, Theo James and Shailene Woodley commented on the shocking ending of the “Divergent” franchise wherein Woodley’s character, Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior dies. Both James and Woodley thought that Tris’ death was the best thing that could happen to the character.
“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,” the 23-year-old actress said.
Roth, on the other hand, defended the ending of her book and said that she wrote it specifically “the way it needed to be told.”
Does the tagline for the final installment to the “Divergent” franchise offer hope for fans who wish to see Tris alive in the end? Fans have already started a petition to change the ending of the movie. Will they get their wish granted?
