7 YA Books That Were Unnecessarily Split Into Two Parts On Screen
It’s probably extremely annoying to some and great for others, but the splitting of young adult novels into two parts on screen, whether it be television seasons or big-screen movies, tilts a little toward overkill. Yes, of course, there’ll be so much more to see in these prolonged YA adaptations, but there’s a thin line between staying true to the story and stretching the storyline for, say, some more coins. That’s a little too much, don’t you think?
The Divergent Series movie franchise recently hopped on that bandwagon with Allegiant, while the creators of The Maze Runner want no part in such a trend. “I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that’s it. Four? I think there’s something off about four,” TMR Director Wes Ball once said. And we agree!
But, obviously, not everyone feels that way. Here’s a set of books that were unnecessarily divided into separate parts:
Everyone knows that Bella was destined to turn into a vampire and run off with Edward, like, for real. Instead, this screenplay was written in a way so that the fight for these two lovebirds to stay together gets dragged out, hence why Breaking Dawn — Part 1 ended when Bella became a vamp and Part 2 picked up from there. Cool
