Divergent Action Begins, First Footage and Allegiant Secrets Released at Comic-Con 2013


The first footage for the highly anticipated movie Divergent premiered at the action packed Ender’s Game/Divergent panel held today at the annual San Diego Comic-Con. Fans were not treated only to the trailer, but also to a panel featuring Veronica Roth, author of the trilogy, as well as Shailene Woodley (Tris), Theo James (Four), and many of the other cast members.

From what has been released, we know that the trailer featured a variety of action packed scenes. It showed Tris’ journey to the Dauntless headquarters as she jumped on and off the high-speed train with her fellow initiates. The scene was followed by Tris volunteering to be the first one to jump off the huge building and (spoiler!) into the net right below with Four waiting beside it. Tris chose her new, more Dauntless oriented name within the trailer as well. Tons of little clips were shown in between all the action: Tris and the other initiates during training, inside the Dauntless fearscapes, at the intense capture the flag game, and even crowd surfing in the mess hall.

During the panel, Adam B. Vary, film reporter for Buzz Feed, took the time to tweet some of his favorite quotes from Roth and some of the actors. Here are some of our favorites.

In addition to all of this, Veronica Roth released some pretty amazing information during the panel about Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy. The book is written in both Tris’ and Four’s perspectives! This is huge news for the Divergent fandom because many of the fans have been wanting to hear more from Four. Now that Four has been given a voice in the ending, it makes us wonder what will happen. Anything seems possible at this point. Allegiant will be released on October 22nd, 2013.

This is all for now, folks! Now you can go back to waiting in the mile long lines at the con, or crying into your pillow about how you are not there. I will be doing the latter.
