Veronica Roth shares her reaction to #Insurgent!

Insurgent will be released in less than a month. Veronica Roth was able to screen Insurgent early. She has shared her reaction with us. Read her thoughts below:

INSURGENT MOVIE!

So!

A few weeks ago I flew out to Los Angeles, a mythical place where there are flowers…on trees…inFebruary. (What is this sorcery?!) And while I was there, I experienced another strange yet wonderful phenomenon: I saw Insurgent.

Guys, Insurgent is great— and fun to watch. It is a tense, action-packed adventure of a movie. At certain points, my muscles were so clenched I felt like I had just done a series of push-ups. When I left, I immediately wanted to go back in and see it again. (I still do!)

I know that some of you are probably apprehensive because as the trailers have revealed, there are a few clear differences between the book and the movie. I shared that apprehension walking into the screening room, but I walked out of the movie relieved—and excited. Insurgent, the book, has a complicated plot—a lot of moving parts, a lot of ups and downs. That sort of thing can work in a book, but if it’s translated directly to the screen, it makes for a messy, confusing movie. The changes that were made streamline the story so it makes sense for this new format; in other words, they work.

And more importantly, the characters—especially Tris, whose difficult emotional journey is really the driving force of Insurgent—are definitely the ones I know and love. Watching it, I felt so lucky that we had such a strong cast, who brought so much to every moment, and a great director, who added so much richness to the world while still keeping it familiar.

I can’t wait for you guys to see it, too!

Just one more month!

Insurgent opens in theaters on March 20. Ticket are now on sale.
