After months and months (and months) of silence, the Divergent fandom has received some unexpected news about the remaining two films. It has been well known that the last book in the Divergent trilogy would be split into two films, following in the footsteps of many successful YA book to film adaptations. After the announcement that the film in the Divergent series, Allegiant, would be split into two parts, I think we all believed it was a logical assumption that the films would be titled The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 1 and The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 2.
But this morning MTV News released some surprising news about the last two films in the Divergent franchise. The first film will be called The Divergent Series: Allegiant, but the second film has been renamed to The Divergent Series: Ascendant. So what does that mean for the movies? Well, at this point in time, as far as we know not much. It simply means we have a new title, new logos and new taglines.
Veronica Roth took to her blog to give a small reaction to the changes saying that while it’s still too early to know what changes there will be, she’s eager to see how the films turn out. You can read her entire blog entry here here.
Meanwhile, check out the new logos for the last two films in the Divergent series.
