The First Allegiant Teaser Trailer Goes Beyond the Wall

Lionsgate has released the first teaser for Allegiant—that is, the adaptation of the first half of Veronica Roth’s third Divergent novel. (Part 2, Ascendant, comes in 2017.) The first part of the teaser is a recap of the first few films: How Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) chose one faction over the other in Divergent, then watched the faction system begin to crumble in Insurgent. Now, according to the mysterious message that was reclaimed by the end of Insurgent, it’s time for Tris and her allies to discover what lies beyond the wall closing in their dystopian city.

The outside world looks more like a Mars-themed Scorch Trials than how it was described in the book, but we’ll see in future trailers how many of the themes still exist. Jeff Daniels appears at the end as David, the head of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare; he tells Tris, “You saved a city. Help me save the world.” For now, watch the trailer:

Allegiant comes to theaters March 18, 2016.
