When books are translated onto the big screen, there are often parts that are changed from the original content found in the book. This holds true for the upcoming “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.

The Maze Runner” came out in 2014 and grossed more than $102 million. Wes Ball has directed both installments of “Maze Runner,” so far. Phase two “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” hits theaters Sept. 18.
Dylan O’Brien, who plays Thomas, talked to screen rant about what might be different in the new movie compared to the actual book. O’Brien said the relationship between Thomas and Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) is slightly different, as the telepathy storyline never made it into the film.
He added that Brenda (Rosa Salazar) and Thomas’ relationship will also grow in the movie because the situation they will go through together will bring them closer.
