As with each YA-book-series-turned-movie-franchise, it has become the status quo to split the last film into two parts –see Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games. It comes as no surprise that the Divergent series will follow suite, splitting the third film, Allegiant, into two parts. TheMarySue reports that Allegiant Part 1 will hit theaters March 18, 2016 followed by Part 2 March 24, 2017. Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairs of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, released the following statement explaining their decision to go halfsies on the final installment of the dystopian trilogy: “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. 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.” Although some would argue that Tris is no Katniss Everdeen, Divergent has done well at the box office these past few weeks, raking in $117 million domestic and $139 worldwide, TheMarySue reports. However, fans are less than thrilled about the split. Many took to Twitter and used the hashtag “#Allegiant” to voice their opinions. Most of the concern had to do with fans realizing they will be in their twenties or in college when Part 2 is released. Should Allegiant be split into two movies? Leave us a comment and let us know!
