Like other adaptations, ‘Divergent’ has split its final chapter into two films. The third and final book, ‘Allegiant’ will appear as two movies, the first of which (the third movie) will debut this year and Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment have released a new trailer for the next movie while debuts on March 18. (The last film, ‘Ascendant’ will hit theaters on June 9, 2017.)
‘Allegiant’ will show Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James) and their allies venturing beyond the wall surrounding their dystopian Chicago dwellings. The new movie “diverges” from the source material– the novels written by Veronica Roth– in order to accommodate the story being split in two for the films.
Here is the synopsis for ‘Allegiant’:
The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, ALLEGIANT takes Tris [Shailene Woodley] and Four [Theo James] into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.
After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known in order to find a peaceful solution for their embroiled city. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.
