‘Divergent’ trilogy’s last book ‘Allegiant’ to be made into two movies

April 11, 2014

According to Divergent‘s official Facebook page , Allegiant will be split into two movies! Though this may or may not be actually necessary, we initiates should be excited none the less – more movies! Yay!

A few book-to-movie adaptation series have done this in the recent past few years, (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 & 2, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2) so it was kind of expecting that the Divergent series would do the same.

“Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Friedman and Wachsberger. “The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn films and about which we’re tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise.”

The dates that have been released are for Allegiant Part 1, which is to come out March 18, 2016 as well as Allegiant Part 2, which should be released March 24, 2017. The studio is definitely planning far ahead, but we’re thankful for it!

    Why? Why? No!!! That is the most ridiculous decision ever!!! Stop trying to make money studios! Ugh, sorry…so not okay with this. It’s not necessary. :/

    This is very very very unnecessary. If anything Insurgent has the bulk of what happens in it. That would deserve a second film, but Allegiant… It all happens pretty quickly and doesn’t warrant a second part, unless they plan on fleshing it out with Veronica’s help. Because it was a bit rushed. Maybe a bit more time with Four and Tris before their fateful ends.

  • Nortia

    NO. This is actually NOT necessary. I agree with the comment below, if there was a movie splited in two it should be Insurgent, it’s a better book and has more story to tell.

    But. I’m also hoping that Allegiant will benefict from this change and that they will improve the story, because to me Allegiant was a very, very weak book, and not for the reasons most people say -yes, THE death was not what bothered me the most, but the weak excuse to the system, how the characters seem to change their personalities when they are out there or how melodramatic it was. I think some of Twilight books where more action packed, and I certainly enjoyed them better because they gave me what they were selling.

    So, if they change and include some of the things Roth should have, I will be happy by this change. But until the moment I see it I will not be OK with the change

    they are just thinking in make more money!! Mockingjay, Breaking Dawn and Harry Potter are big book and the story can be cut in to parts, but not this!! I think they would chance a lot things!! -_-

    Pd: Sorry for my english

    Mockingjay could use a decent second part, because like Allegiant, it is too short and too rushed in many parts. So I don’t mind a two parter for MJ. Danny Strong is also a lovely amazing talented writer and performer and he handled the screen play, so it have faith for that. Francis Lawrence is just as passionate as us fans, and he’s manning the rest of the films.

    But when it comes Allegiant… We don’t know much about the team that will be behind the future films. That’s what leaves me wiggy on it. I wish Neil Burger was staying on, I’d feel better about it that way.

    Of course it is. I don’t think it’s necessary, but then again, they’re splitting Mockingjay and that’s even more unnecessary. I don’t really mind as long as they do a good job.

    Nothing can save that book/movie/movies since it was a complete mess so whatever.

    Wonderful idea Allegiant is 526 pages biggest book of the trilogy it makes perfect since to split it in two parts.

  • Jeremy Chenevert

    Think about it Allegiant is 526 pages it’s the biggest book of the 3 it makes perfect since

  • Jordan

    AHHHHH! this is the ONE thing I didn’t want to happen. It is SOOO unnecessary. Yes, it’s the biggest book, but the content can be put neatly into one movie.
    So annoyed at this. Argh!

    Regardless of the length of the book much of it was dragged and had unnecessary information. The two POV’s also made the novel lengthier, this would obviously not be portrayed in the film making the point of cutting it in two parts pathetic.I would not find it very enjoyable sitting in a theater for an hour and a half listening to the whole construction of the society and significance of the Divergent, I’m speaking of Allegiant Part 1 in this case. This could easily be cut short and simple in one installment with the actual interesting and significant plot that runs through the second part of the novel.

    Mocking Jay was very dragged. Like literally very very dragged. And so is Allegiant. And well Breaking Dawn wouldnt just end, I mean no offense but Breaking Dawn was amazingly weird. Deathly Hallows on the other hand was the best of the whole 7 book series and it by all manners deserved two parts. None of the others do. I feel Catching Fire should have been divided into two movies ( regardless of it being an impeccable movie) instead of Mocking Jay, same with Insurgent and Allegiant. I mean the second book in every trilogy is mostly the bulky one and they still put it in a single film cramming to much information. Whats the point of doing that exactly?

  • Jeremy Chenevert

    People really need to get over it. It’s fucking happening get the fuck over it and grow up

    In the same boat as Nortia, I didn’t actually have a problem with the ending of Allegiant. It’s the rest of the book that’s got the problem. And I didn’t even mind THAT so much (probably because I was more of a casual fan/reader) because we were finally getting answers, but I did come out of it thinking, “This could be okay as long as they don’t split it into two movies.”


    “Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies”

    “a rich, action-packed book”


    That is a straight-up lie. You know how many new action scenes they’re going to have to create to somehow keep people’s attention for two movies?! Of the like.. 3 action scenes that were in the book, 1 of them was over in like a few nanoseconds, and only 1 of them involved actual fighting. Not helping was the fact that there were like 5 scenes that felt like they were leading up to some much-needed action, but ended up just leading to more information sharing.

  • Nortia

    You are right, but it’s also the less action-packed. But as I said maybe this is for the best and with two films they can add things to right the weakness in the book. That’s my optimistic approach ^^
