The Divergent Series is a feature film series based on the Divergent novels by the American author Veronica Roth. The series is distributed by Summit Entertainment and consists of four science-fiction dystopian action adventure films produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian, and Douglas Wick and stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James as the two leading characters, Beatrice "Tris" Prior and Tobias "Four" Eaton. Two directors have worked on the series; Neil Burger directed the first film and Robert Schwentke directed the next two films.

The first two films were commercially successful, with each film reaching the No. 1 spot during their opening weekends. The first installment, Divergent (2014), grossed over US$56 million worldwide during its opening weekend, and the second installment, The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015), grossed over US$101 million worldwide. A two-part finale, titled The Divergent Series: Allegiant, was announced with Part 1 being released in 2016 and Part 2 in 2017.

The series began development in 2011 when Summit Entertainment acquired the film rights to Divergent with production company Red Wagon Entertainment. After Divergent grossed US$4.9 million in Thursday late nights screenings, Summit Entertainment announced they would begin production on Insurgent; they had acquired the rights to the novel Allegiant in December 2013 with a two-part adaptation of the novel being announced in April 2014.

Divergent Trilogy is a series of young adult science fiction adventure novels by Veronica Roth. The trilogy consists of Divergent (2011), Insurgent (2012) and Allegiant (2013). It is a young-adult dystopian novel set in the so-called Divergent Universe, that features a post-apocalyptic version of Chicago.

Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant all take place in the same area, a futuristic and dystopian vision of Chicago. Society defines its citizens by their social and personality-related affiliation with five different factions, which removes the threat of anyone exercising independent will and re-threatening the population's safety. Beatrice Prior, who later changed her name to Tris, an Abnegation-born and Dauntless transfer, must figure out her life as a Divergent. If the Dauntless leaders find her out she will be killed. She must learn to conceal her ability and not let it show.

Divergent (2014)

Divergent is a 2014 American science fiction action film directed by Neil Burger, based on the novel of the same name by Veronica Roth. The film is the first installment in The Divergent Series and was produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian, and Douglas Wick, with a screenplay by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor. It stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q and Kate Winslet. The story takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic version of Chicago where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Beatrice Prior is warned that she is Divergent and thus will never fit into any one of the factions and soon learns that a sinister plot is brewing in her seemingly perfect society.

Development of Divergent began in March 2011 when Summit Entertainment picked up the film rights to the novel with Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher's production company Red Wagon Entertainment. Principal photography began on April 16, 2013 and concluded on July 16, 2013, with reshoots taking place from January 24–26, 2014. Production mostly took place in Chicago.

Divergent was released on March 21, 2014 in the United States. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise going to its solid performances, but criticized for its generic execution and predictable, unoriginal plot with several critics making negative comparisons to The Hunger Games, which shares a similar story and characters. Despite this, the film was a financial success as it reached the #1 spot at the box office during its opening weekend. Since its release, the film has grossed over US$288 million worldwide against its budget of US$85 million. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 5, 2014.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015)

The Divergent Series: Insurgent (also known as Insurgent) is a 2015 science fiction adventure film directed by Robert Schwentke, based on Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent trilogy, written by Veronica Roth. It is the sequel to the 2014 film Divergent and the second installment in The Divergent Series, produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian and Douglas Wick, with a screenplay by Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman, and Mark Bomback. Robert Schwentke took over from Neil Burger as director, while Burger served as the executive producer of the film. Along with the first film's returning cast, the sequel features supporting actors Octavia Spencer, Naomi Watts, Suki Waterhouse, Rosa Salazar, Daniel Dae Kim, Jonny Weston, Emjay Anthony, and Keiynan Lonsdale.

The plot of Insurgent takes place three days after the previous installment and continues to follow Tris Prior; Tris and Four are on the run after evading a hostile takeover from Jeanine and the rest of Erudite. The faction system in post-apocalyptic Chicago is crumbling, and everyone is desperate for power — and answers. Filming began on May 27, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia, before officially concluding on September 6, 2014.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent was released on March 20, 2015 in the United States in the IMAX 3D format as well as regular 3D and 2D. Critical reaction to the film was mixed: some have considered the film to be an improvement over its predecessor, with reviewers highlighting the visual style, action sequences, and Woodley's performance, but the film still received an immense amount of negative criticism, mainly focused on the film's story-line. The film was a commercial success, grossing over US$101 million worldwide during its opening weekend, making it attain the #1 spot at the box-office.

Divergent (2011 Novel)

Divergent is the debut novel of American novelist Veronica Roth, published by HarperCollins Children's Books in 2011. The novel is the first of the Divergent trilogy, a series of young-adult dystopian novels set in the Divergent Universe. The novel Divergent features a post-apocalyptic version of Chicago and follows Beatrice "Tris" Prior as she explores her identity within a society that defines its citizens by their social and personality-related affiliation with five factions, which removes the threat of anyone exercising independent will and re-threatening the population's safety. Underlying the action and dystopian focused main plot is a romantic subplot between Tris and one of her instructors in the Dauntless faction, nicknamed Four.

The novel has been compared to other young adult books such as The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner because of its similar themes and target audience. In particular, the novel explores the themes common to young adult fiction, such as adult authority and the transition from childhood to maturity, as well as such broader motifs as the place of violence and social structures within a post-apocalyptic society. Its major plot device, the division of society into personality types, is one used in other science fiction works. Beyond its literary context, Roth's open declaration of her religion as a Christian has brought commentary from Christian communities both endorsing and challenging the novel.

Roth wrote Divergent while working on a Creative Writing degree at Northwestern University, and it was quickly purchased for publication alongside the subsequent books in the trilogy (completed in October 2013). Summit Entertainment purchased the media rights to the book in 2011 and subsequently produced a film adaptation titled Divergent which was released March 21, 2014. The film, a success amongst audiences, generated $288,747,895 at the box office despite mixed reviews from critics.

Insurgent (2012 Novel)

Insurgent is a 2012 science fiction young adult novel by American novelist Veronica Roth and the second book in the Divergent trilogy. As the sequel to the 2011 bestseller Divergent, it continues the story of Tris Prior and the dystopian post-apocalyptic version of Chicago. Following the events of the previous novel, a war now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. While trying to save the people that she loves, Tris faces questions of grief, forgiveness, identity, loyalty, politics, and love.

The book was first published on May 1, 2012 by the HarperCollins imprints Katherine Tegen Books in the U.S. and HarperCollins Children's Books in the U.K, and a "Collector's Edition" was published on October 30 in the United States. Insurgent received mostly positive reviews from critics, with reviewers praising Roth's writing.

A film adaptation of the novel was released on March 20, 2015.

Allegiant (2013 Novel)

Allegiant is a science fiction novel for young adults, written by the American author Veronica Roth and published by HarperCollins in October 2013. It completes the Divergent trilogy that Roth inaugurated with her debut novel Divergent in 2011. The book is written from the perspective of both Beatrice (Tris) and Tobias (Four).

Allegiant was published simultaneously by the HarperCollins imprints Katherine Tegen Books in the U.S. and HarperCollins Children's Books in the U.K. Four weeks earlier, a free electronic companion book to the trilogy titled The World of Divergent: The Path to Allegiant was released online.
