The Divergent novel series that has been adapted into a multi-million dollar film franchise is nearing its end.
Last week it was revealed that the final two installments in the franchise would be getting new titles, in which the Part 1 from the first of the final two was dropped, leaving the title solely as Allegiant and changing the last installment's title entirely to Ascendant.
With the title changes came cool logos that were also revealed last week. Within the logos are cool taglines too. Given the taglines the same jarring intensity could be expected in the movies as seen in the final book, but it is clear certain things will inevitably change from book to last movie.

Last Thursday upon these announcements, the series' author Veronica Roth took to her Tumblrto divulge her thoughts about the news.
What do these announcements entail? Well, Roth dished, "Well, basically, it means there are going to be some changes."
Since Allegiant will be hitting theaters next year, it is too soon to know what will change from the book of the same name to the final movie. Ascendant is the second half of what the book Allegiant stands for, but obviously things will be changed especially given the title change.
"[I]t's really too early to know exactly what those changes will be or the extent of them," Roth said, adding, "I know changes always make fans of the books- and the author!- nervous, but hopefully the characters we know (and love. Or sometimes love to hate?) will still be intact, which is really the important thing."
While Roth harbors some nerves about what might become of the final installment, she is "eager to see" the two final installments.
She's along for the ride with the devoted fans that helped take her books and turn them into the movies many love.
Allegiant hits theaters on March 18, 2016 and Ascendant will be out on March 24, 2017.
