Just like the factions split — and then came back together — at the end of “The Divergent Series: Insurgent,” so have the upcoming two final movies in the series. They were previously called “The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 1,” and “The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 2,” but now MTV News can exclusively reveal the final two movies in the series will have brand new names once they hit theaters.
When we last left Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), the truth of their world had been revealed to them: they’re part of an experiment to heal the post-apocalyptic Earth they live in, and could have left the wall that surrounds the ruins of Chicago at any time.
Only with the emergence of Divergents — people like Tris, who possess multiple distinct personality qualities — could the truth be revealed. And that’s exactly where the renamed “The Divergent Series: Allegiant” (notice the lack of “Part 1”) picks up on March 18, 2016; as Tris and Four head over the wall to discover what remains of the rest of the world.
Then the next year on March 24, 2017, the whole series comes to an explosive close with “The Divergent Series: Ascendant.” Both movies will be based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling novel “Allegiant,” but will also expand on the story in ways we can only guess at (though we’re going to guess that Tris does several badass things, and Four doesn’t quite get along with his parents — mild spoilers).
Hey, as long as there’s plenty of FourTris action — and plenty of Peter (Miles Teller) being snarky — we’re there.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.
We’re also exclusively revealing the brand new logos for the movies, right here, right now.
The tagline for “Ascendant” is particularly interesting — “The End Is Never What You Expect” — given, as fans of the books know, things don’t end up too well for one of our main characters. So will things change by the time we see the finale on screen? Or is this teasing that non-readers are going to be surprised by the shocking ending?
Either way, we’ve got to know… Is it March yet? Because waiting for half a year to see “Allegiant” is at least two of the fears in our fear landscapes.
