Last week Divergent trilogy author Veronica Roth announced that she’d be writing four short stories about Four. Today, she has shed a little more light on what the stories will be about and their titles.
Roth confirmed that the titles for each of the four Four books are (in the order of release): The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor. They will be released on September 24, December 17, January 21, and February 11 respectively.
“These stories mostly address Tobias’s backstory and some mysterious things happening in his world before Tris joins Dauntless. There will be some overlap with Divergent’s timeline, though,” Roth wrote on her official Tumblr.
The author also confirmed that the stories will be initially released in eBook format, but in February they will hit book store shelves in one compilation and attached with Free Four.
Free Four is the first short story released as an eBook. It was published last year. The story follows Four as he watches Tris in the knife throwing scene. Fans adored the short story because it offer perspective into what Four was thinking as his love interest was experiencing an intense moment to prove herself as a member of Dauntless.
While everyone’s looking forward to these new stories starring Four, we first are waiting for Allegiant, the third and final book in Roth’s Divergent trilogy, which hits book store shelves this October.
Theo James stars as Four in the Divergent movie which is currently filming in Chicago and will be out in theatres 21 March 2014!

Exciting stuff! Don’t forget to save the date for Divergent film release date: 21 March 2014.
Fans have been waiting for this picture for quite a long time and finally thanks to EW here it is! Meet Theo James who will be playing Four, a particularly special character to our heroine Tris Prior. What do you think? Is he how you imagined Four to look like? I admit he looks different to how I imagined but we’ll just have to wait and see how he does in the role when the film comes out!
Divergent, the first book in a trilogy of dystopian novels written by Veronica Roth, tells the story of Tris Prior who lives in a society that is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
The film version stars Shailene Woodley as Tris, Theo James as Four, Kate Winslet as Jeanine, Miles Teller as Peter, Zoe Kravitz as Christina, Jai Courtney as Eric, Ben Lloyd-Hughes as Will, Christian Madsen as Al, Ben Lamb as Edward, and Ansel Elgort as Caleb. Tony Goldwyn and Ashley Judd will be portraying Tris and Caleb’s parents.
Divergent, will be out in cinemas on 21 March 2014 and the last book in the trilogy, Allegiant , will be published in the U.S. this October!
Earlier today the Divergent faction symbols for Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor, Erudite and Amity that will be used for the upcoming movies were released by the movie’s official Instagram.
The symbols were released in descending order according to the amount of likes each faction received throughout the day on their specific images that can be seen here.
Divergent is currently filming in Chicago and is scheduled to be released 21 March, 2014. It stars Shailene Woodley as Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior and Theo James as Four. The third and final book in the series, Allegiant will be released October 22, 2013.
“We are alive. We are free. We are Dauntless.”
“Knowledge is power. Wisdom is harmony.”
“Keep the peace. Build a better world.”
“Face the truth. Let Candor set you free.”
“Lead by serving. Speak by listening.”
The newly opened Divergent Instagram has released five faction graphics designed to promote each faction’s manifesto! In order of appearance below there is: Erudite, Amity, Dauntless, Abnegation and Candor. The faction symbols are scheduled to be revealed sometime today but first we have to choose which faction we belong in!
The fans have the chance to choose their faction by ‘liking’ the respective manifesto on instagram! The faction that receives the most amount of likes will have their symbol appear first, followed by the subsequent factions in order of ‘likes’. The faction symbols will begin to be revealed following the conclusion of the Choosing Ceremony. You can participate in the Instagram iPhone application, or on the website. Which remaining one are you most excited for? Entertainment Weekly already released the Dauntless symbol, which you can click here to see. These graphics below are NOT faction symbols. They are just artsy graphics of the faction manifestos!
The filmmakers of the adaptation for Veronica Roth’s bestselling book, ‘Divergent’, have decided to rebrand the faction symbols for the movie. In true movie advertising style, they won’t show us all of the newly designed symbols at once. They’re going to release them slowly and today was the first day! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the pic. Below you can see the symbol for Dauntless, the faction that Tris chooses to become a part of. What do you think of it? I personally would have preferred the color version that fans had made. (Check it out below the new film version.)
Divergent, if you haven’t read the books, is a dystopian world set in Chicago. The population is split into five factions: Abnegation (selfless), Erudite (intelligent), Candor (honest), Amity (peaceful) and Dauntless (brave). Children are born into a faction their parents chose for themselves and then when they are sixteen, they get to choose their own faction – but if they choose a different faction from their family, they never get to see them again.
To see the other four faction symbols you can follow @Divergent on Instagram for the full reveal on Thursday, 5/23 at 9 am PT.
Divergent, the film, stars Shailene Woodley as Tris, Theo James as Four, Kate Winslet as Jeanine, Miles Teller as Peter, Zoe Kravitz as Christina, Jai Courtney as Eric, Ben Lloyd-Hughes as Eric, Christian Madsen as Al, Ben Lamb as Edward, and Ansel Elgort as Caleb. Tony Goldwyn and Ashley Judd will be portraying Tris and Caleb’s parents.
The film will be released in U.S. cinemas on 21 March, 2014.
Summit has released a new photo from Divergent depicting Tris ( Shailene Woodley) taking her Dauntless jump into the faction’s headquarters.
We get a great look at Tris’ Abnegation outfit, and a sneak peek at Dauntless leader Eric (Jai Courtney). (He’s the one with his hands on his hips.)
“In this photo she’s already jumped off the train and onto a seven story building as part of the initiation rite for the Dauntless,” Divergent director Neil Berger said yesterday. “The next thing they have to do is jump from the building and down through a courtyard that has a deep, black hole. It’s terrifying.”
“We’d been nervously planning it because it is dangerous and there’s a lot of people on that roof,” Burger continued. “We had to pull it off safely and also pull it off cinematically, so you have this knot in your stomach as you watch this young woman decide to do this crazy thing. We had great weather that day and I think this scene really is emblematic of the movie: It shows the energy and the rawness of the way we’re telling the story.”
Divergent co-stars Theo James as Four, Kate Winslet as Jeanine, Ansel Elgort as Caleb, Miles Teller as Peter, Ray Stevenson as Marcus, Christian Madsen as Al, and Ben Lloyd-Hughes as Will. Tris’ parents were the last roles to be cast. Scandal actor Tony Goldwyn will play her father, and Ashley Judd will play her mother. Divergent opens in theaters March 21, 2014.
