“Allegiant” first look

The October release date for Allegiant, the final installment of Veronica Roth‘s international best-selling series Divergent, is looming closer and the anticipation amongst fans are running high with all the movie news and other stuff. Almost two weeks ago, Entertainment Weekly released the first Allegiant quote from. It’s from the book’s seventh chapter which is written in Tris‘ perspective. Now, we get the first quote from Tobias‘ perspective. I’m thinking this is from a different chapter though it wasn’t stated.

I am totally fangirling over these. Just a few more days initiates. Hold on. Just 40 more days!

Divergent Movie: First Look

The first look into the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s YA debut “Divergent” premiered earlier this week at the MTV Video Music Awards, and from what I saw, it looks promising. There were obviously some changes since you can’t turn the whole book into a movie word-for-word, scene-by-scene; that’ll be more like a TV series with 16++ hours worth of reel and even then, there’ll be some tweeking because of the new medium.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the video plus another one with cast interviews and *jazz hands* Veronica Roth. The movie is set for a March 21, 2014 release, until then we’ll all have to wait fellow initiates. Here are some more dates you’ll need to mark on your calendars:

September 3: The Transfer

September 24: The World of Divergent: The Path to Allegiant

October 22: Allegiant

December 17: The Initiate

January 21: The Son

February 11: The Traitor

February 11: Four: A Divergent Story Collection

And now, some really exciting “Allegiant” news

Oh, yes! Allegiant is now being printed and Katherine Tegen posted this photo on Tumblr. What’s more, we now have a full back description. Here it goes:

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Author Veronica Roth recently announced during the Divergent movie panel at Comic-Con that Allegiant will be told from both Tris and Tobias’s perspective. Allegiant, the last book in the Divergent trilogy, will be released on October 22. Meanwhile, the first of the four “Four” e-shorts titled The Transfer will be out next month on the 24th. Also, also, voting for Four’s voice (Allegiant audio book) will end soon. Harper Audio has something for the voters, so go VOTE.  And if it helps, below is the four auditions for Four’s voice from Soundcloud.

It’s been a good couple of months for Divergentland. Aren’t you guys excited? I know I am.
