You know we love the Divergent series, but like many fellow Initiates, the ending of Allegiant with Tris’ death was incredibly difficult to read. And,to be honest, we have to admit that it’s a bit scary/nerve-wracking to imagine watching our darling Shailene Woodley portray those scenes on the big-screen. Even thinking about Theo James acting out Four’s reaction is enough to bring on the feels.
Well, according to a new post from Design & Trend, some Divergent fans are getting active in pursuing some change:
It seems fans of the “Divergent” series starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James petitioning Lionsgate and the book’s author Veronica Roth to have an official version for the big screen (if they must) and an alternate version in the DVD extras.
Interesting…so even though the official film version might match Veronica Roth’s original ending from the book, fans are asking that we have the opportunity to see a different Four/Tris HEA as a dvd/Blu-ray bonus feature.
As of today, the Change.org petition has 243 supporters. What do you think? Is this a petition you would consider signing?
Allegiant: Part 2 is set to premiere on March 24, 2017, so we still have a ways to go. While it’s interesting to think about seeing an alternative ending in the film version of the Divergent series, something has to be said for staying true to the book and the original intentions of the author.
