- "Allegiant" Being Split Into Two Movies [4/11]
Following the trend of other franchises before it, the final installment of the "Divergent" series, Allegiant, will be split into two movies. Allegiant - Part 1 will be released on March 18, 2016, which was the original release date of the movie when it was still one movie. Allegiant - Part 2 will follow a year later with a release on March 24, 2017.
The second movie, Insurgent, will be opening in theaters on March 20, 2015, so we're assured of seeing lots of Tris and Four over the next several years.
Empire Online quoted executives from Lionsgate as saying:
“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,” said Lionsgate Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “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.”
This trend of splitting the final installment of a series got started with the Harry Potter franchise, when in 2008, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was split into Part 1 and Part 2 and were released eight months apart in 2010 and 2011. That approach was quite successful, revenue-wise, so it was repeated by the Twilight series, the Hunger Games franchise, and even The Hobbit went from two movies to three.
