All the Proof You Need That Every YA Movie’s the Same

By  | 

Here at, we’re all about YA movies. The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent — they’re all our absolute favorites! But that’s probably because they’re all basically the same. Don’t believe us? Well, you’re in for a rude awakening then.

While all young adult franchises have their own qualities that make them unique in certain aspects, many of them have the same formula. As the video above suggests, all of them begin in “a world with ambiguously oppressive governments, in a vaguely distant future full of strange love triangles…” See it now? You can’t even distinguish which story it’s talking about because it’s referring to all. Of. Them.

In case you need further proof, watch the mashup video, The Divergent Games Part 1: New Moon Runner, featuring footage from The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent, The Giver, The Mortal Instruments, The Maze Runner and Ender’s Game.
