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?
