The Anticipation: The Fault in our Stars Coming to Theaters

Kylee Hurley, Writer

June 6th marks the day that fans have been waiting for; the debut of “The Fault in our Stars film. It is based off the novel by John Green which was published in January 2012, and was planned to become a film less than a year later. 

The story revolves around Hazel Grace who is a dying cancer patient that inevitably falls in love with Augustus Waters  who has also undergone treatment for cancer.

Most fans of the book approve of the cast, due to John Green having lots of input on the film. Shailene Woodley was cast as Hazel, with Ansel Elgort playing Augustus. Lots of people recognize the pair from the film “Divergent” which came out this year.

Shailene and Ansel happened to be onscreen brother and sister in “Divergent” and now take on the role of being a couple in “The Fault in Our Stars.”

Nate Wolff who is most known for his role in “The Naked Brothers Band” will also be featured in the film. He portrays a young man who loses his eyes due to cancer, and befriends Hazel and Augustus along the way.

“The Fault in Our Stars” isn’t the only bestseller that Green has created. Aside from this riveting novel he also created “Looking For Alaska” which tells the story of a shy High School student that befriends the interesting Alaska Young.

The ending of this novel will shock its readers as much as “The Fault in Our Stars”.

Students at Franklin High are anxious to see the film, including freshman Nadia Havens. In an interview with Nadia after the first trailer for the movie dropped she told Pantherbook why she can’t wait to see this years feel-good movie.

“Its a heartbreaking story but when you read it you can’t put the book down. I can’t wait for the movie because I wanna see how I imagined the story in real life. I hope it will be even more amazing to watch Hazels journey happen in front of you,” she stated.

Today over one million copies of the novel have been printed, and millions of people across the world await to see the upcoming film.
