'Divergent' Author Veronica Roth Responds to Movie Title Changes

'Divergent' Author Veronica Roth Responds to Movie Title Changes

In case you haven’t heard already – the third Divergent movie will be split into two – Allegiant and Ascendant.

They were originally title The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 1 and The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 2, but the films now have different names and will indeed differ from the ending of the novels.

Author Veronica Roth took to Tumblr to address the changes.

“What does this mean? Well, basically, it means there are going to be some changes, but it’s really too early to know exactly what those changes will be or the extent of them,” Veronica wrote. “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.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about the movies moving away from the books a bit?

“(Caleb) really goes (to) an interesting place, and he actually becomes sort of the antagonism story,” Ansel said. “Which is interesting because you don’t want to always want to play the same thing as an actor and to sort of be the villain sometimes is cool.”

Tris Prior - We Mean Shailene Woodley - Glams Up for 'Divergent' Premiere

Shailene Woodley gussies up for the premiere of her new film, Divergent held at the Regency Bruin Theatre on Tuedsay night (March 18) in Los Angeles.

Wearing a stunning gown from Elie Saab Couture, the 22-year-old actress was joined by on-screen brother Ansel Elgort and author Veronica Roth.

“In this movie, there’s no envy and no jealousy — no ridiculous girl-fights. It’s such an important message to send out there in this age of feminism because, yes, men need to respect women, and women need to be the leads of films, but at the same time, how do we expect men to respect women if women don’t respect women?” Shailene recently shared with The Daily Beast.

She continued, “A big theme in my life is sisterhood, and I think that this movie is a really great representation of that — of being there and supporting one-another without the malicious attacks that so often come in movies and media. So many women feel so much anger towards other women.”

FYI: Shailene is wearing an Elie Saab Couture gown and Stuart Weitzman shoes.
