Shailene Woodley’s Tris, Theo James’ Four and the rest of the “Insurgent” cast take on new dimension in a series of character posters released Tuesday.

“The Divergent Series: Insurgent” — the second film in the movie franchise based on the bestselling YA novels by Veronica Roth — will be released in 3-D, Summit announced Tuesday, and in keeping that the new posters are interactive and in 3-D.

The story is set in a future version of Chicago, where people are tested and sorted into five factions based on personality. Young heroine Tris Prior (Woodley) finds out she is divergent, meaning she has an aptitude for multiple factions and doesn’t fall neatly into one category — a dangerous trait in the rigidly divided society. She hides her divergence and decides to join the faction based on bravery, where she meets a group of tattooed warriors including love interest Four (James).

After the events of “Divergent,” which had sales of more than $288 million at the international box office earlier this year, “Insurgent” tracks Tris’ journey as war between the factions looms. Now fugitives on the run from power-hungry Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), Tris and her allies must delve into the past to unlock the truth about the world they live in. The film is slated for release March 20, 2015.

The film is directed by Robert Schwentke ( “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “Flightplan,” “Red”) from a screenplay penned by Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman and Mark Bomback. Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher and Pouya Shahbazian are producing.

In addition to Tris and Four, the character posters feature Tris’ brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort), her best friend Christina (Zoë Kravitz) and Dauntless leader Tori (Maggie Q) as well as Uriah (Keiynan Lonsdale), Max (Mekhi Phifer) and the cruel Peter (Miles Teller). (Check out the 2-D versions in the gallery above and the 3-D versions below.)

The film also stars Winslet, Ray Stevenson as Four’s father Marcus Eaton, Jai Courtney as the villainous Eric and newcomers Naomi Watts as Factionless leader Evelyn and Octavia Spencer as Amity leader Johanna.

The third book in Roth’s dystopian adventure series, “Allegiant,” will be split into two films, due out in 2016 and 2017.
