The much awaited film adaptation of “Divergent: Allegiant Part 1 and 2” are set to be released in 2016 and 2017. Even though the book already revealed what would happen in the finale, there are hearsays that the movie might have an alternate ending. What does the author, Veronica Roth, think about this?
If you are waiting for the movie franchise, we are warning you– this article might include spoilers for the next film.
According to Movie News Guide, Roth has considered the idea of writing a different ending to “Allegiant”. However, she revealed that other endings didn’t fit well with Tris’ story.
“The other options weren’t doing the real justice to her story. The idea of her settling down after saving the world was not good enough, and it didn’t feel good,” the site noted Roth as explaining.
This ending, however, is for the book. And whether the movie will adapt a different ending than the YA novel is still in question.
In the books, Tris only experienced near death in “Divergent” and “Insurgent”, but her death in “Allegiant” turned out to be what was organized by the American novelist. The author noted that her death was already formulated even at the start.
Notably, Theo James a.k.a Tobias Eaton believes that her death is “Philosophical”.
“I thought it was a natural — I thought it totally made sense. Her whole philosophy in life is selflessness and giving. She’s almost like a semi-Christ figure in that way,” he revealed in Buzzfeed.
“She’s endlessly selfless, and it seem like an obvious, natural course for her to give her life for the sake of others.”
If the readers think that the books’ ending is justified, then the movie might turn out to be the same. But with the alternative ending rumors, fans will just have to wait for the movies to be released.
“Divergent Allegiant” will be divided in two parts; Part 1 will be on March 18, 2016 and Part 2 will be on March 24, 2017.
