The ‘Divergent’ final instalments have new names
We are just few months away from the second to last film in the Divergent series and now the studio has decided to axe the good old Part 1 and Part 2 in the titles.
After an okay run at the box office, Insurgent’s sequels will be called The Divergent Series: Allegiant and the fourth and final one — Ascendant. As expected, both films will follow Veronica Roth’s bestseller novel Allegiant. What’s more, the films have new taglines:
The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Break the boundaries of your world
The Divergent Series: Ascendant — The end is never what you expect
Out of nowhere, MTV News was the website which broke the news about the young adult series. Strategically, dropping the Part 1 and Part 2 from the title is a great move. If what the creators of the adaptations do their job right, which is debatable after Insurgent, we might get to see a better version the book with the expanded world.
The Divergent Series: Allegiant hits theaters on March 18, 2016.
What do you think about this title change? Was it a good idea? Are you excited about Allegiant?
