The world Veronica Roth created with her dystopian Divergent series is a complex one, set in a walled area in the remains of Chicago proper. The books were a hit, leading to the popular 2014 flick Divergent, and this week’s sequel, Insurgent, which follows Tris and Four as they attempt to infiltrate the Erudite faction and determine why Erudite is trying to harm the other factions in the system. The movie is already a hit, bringing in over $54 million at the box office during its first weekend. Now that many people have already seen the flick, let’s talk about the big changes that were made by new director Robert Schwentke while bringing Insurgent to life on the big screen. In fact, since the movie differs so wildly from the source material, it often feels like a different project, even if the overarching goals and plots are similar.

Following are the eleven biggest changes I noticed in my screening of Insurgent. Feel free to remark on any changes you feel may have been more noticeable. There are many spoilers in the Insurgent book to movie comparison. Do not delve in if you want the film to be a surprise.

Johanna insurgent Johanna's role is minimized. The benevolent but shrewd Amity leader is played by Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, who appears in a small role in the film. We also do not get to see her have a secret meeting with Marcus that Tris sneakily listens in on. The scar on her face also isn't as noticeable.
