The Divergent Series: Allegiant is the third installment of the franchise, as Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) venture outside the confines of Chicago to discover deeper and possibly more dangerous truths about their world.
“I think there are a lot of driving themes in all these movies,” said Woodley. “When we were filming (Allegiant), I was constantly like ‘what movie are we making’ because it felt so foreign to me as an actor to explore this world, the Bureau, which was outside of Chicago. It wasn’t just new for Tris - it was new for all of us as actors. It was new for the director.”
