Btw, if you look at the novel version, not all Gladers will survive. The saddest thing is Newt’s death. Through social media, such as Facebook and YouTube, fans voice their hopes: That this version of Maze Runner: The Death Cure will change the plot.
However, via Twitter, some time ago, director Wes Ball assured Maze Runner fans that the film The Death Cure will not make them sad and disappointed. Indeed, there are some things that will be the same with the novel version. However, apart from that, there is also something different. Was that a sign that Newt would be left alive?
Newt’s character does play an important role in the Maze Runner franchise. He is a mediator, channeler of ideas, and the person who makes sure all the actions of Thomas et al are done for a good reason.
In addition to the main characters, Maze Runner: The Death Cure also features new characters. Namely: Lawrence. The mysterious character is played by Walton Goggins. Which, before this, has played in Django Unchained (2012) and The Hateful Eight (2015).
Btw, when interviewed, director Wes Ball stated, the film The Death Cure is the biggest project of the three Maze Runner films. In addition, he also emphasized that he would not divide the ending of the Maze Runner trilogy into two films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (2015) and Divergent: Allegiant (2016).
According to Wes Ball, the three Maze Runner films are fitting. That is, the beginning, middle, and end. So, there won’t be a fourth film. The Death Cure film is the closing series. The ultimate alias. In this film, the cause of the outbreak of The Flare virus will be revealed. And the actual condition of the world at that time.
However, even though the film The Death Cure will be the last film, the stars of Maze Runner, such as Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Ki Hong Lee, admit that they don’t mind if they have to reunite later. Maybe, for a spin-off film project or a reboot.
In addition, the three young actors also admitted that they were sad, and felt very emotional, when they finished the last film. According to them, being involved in the Maze Runner franchise over the past few years has been a very valuable and special experience.
However, unfortunately, after holding its world premiere in Seoul, Korea, on January 11, 2018, the last series of Maze Runner received a less positive response from critics. However, even so, for fans who have watched the first and second films, the 142-minute film The Death Cure is still mandatory to watch.
Wilbert Awdry, originally, wrote The Railway Series based on a story he told when his son was recovering from measles. Most of the stories about Thomas & Friends are taken from Awdry’s personal experience.
The success of the book and television series then made Thomas & Friends twice appointed to the big screen. In the form of musical animation. The first film, entitled The Great Race, was released in 2016. Meanwhile, the second film, Journey Beyond Sodor (2017).
