Veronica Roth’s Reaction On The New ‘Allegiant’ Titles

(There is a Spoiler at the end of the post! I’ve warned you below where it is)

It was recently revealed that the upcoming Divergent Series will no longer be called Allegiant Part 1 and Allegiant Part 2. Rather, the two would be called The Divergent Series: Allegiant and The Divergent Series: Ascendant. Veronica Roth the author of the Divergent series has recently weighed in on the change.

Other than the changes in the two films’ working titles, new official logos were also released last week.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant has the tagline, “Break the boundaries of your world.” The Divergent Series: Ascendant notes, “The end is never what you expect.”

Meanwhile, Roth addressed the changes via her Tumblr account. She said that there will be some changes to the last two films in the franchise. However, it is still unclear what these changes would be.

“I know changes always make fans of the books– and the author!– nervous, but hopefully the characters we know (and love. Or sometimes love to hate?) will still be intact, which is really the important thing. I am eager to see how these movies turn out, along with you guys.,” Roth wrote.

According to E! News, Robert Schwentke will be directing both installments, and the films will continue to see Theo James, Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort.

As of late, fans are speculating on what other changes Allegiant and Ascendant will have.


****Spoiler Alert****




In the past, Roth already confirmed that the ending of the movie will be similar to the book’s ending. This means that Woodley’s Tris will die.

However, some fans believe that there’s still a possibility that Woodley’s character will survive, even though Roth previously said that her death is an important part of the story.

“I thought about other options. But the more I thought about them, the more I felt like they weren’t really doing justice to her story,” she told MTV News.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant is slated to hit theaters in the United States on Mar. 18, 2016.

What do you think of the title change and  them expanding on the story?
