After receiving rave reviews at San Diego Comic-Con the official trailer for THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 is here in all it’s glory! It is bitter-sweet to see the final film in the franchise heading to theatres, knowing that there will be no more Katniss on the big screen after this year. The books were a world-wide phenomenon and the films gave us a closer look at the heroine we all grew to love. While the books were amazing, the films took us to the world and the characters we fell in love with. They stuck to the core of the story while also being able to stand alone. Each year we have had a new film to take in and each year the anticipation for the next only grew. Not only is the storyline riveting with relatable characters but there are also important themes and life lessons within.
In the final film in the franchise realizing the stakes are no longer just for survival, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) teams up with her closest friends, including Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Finnick for the ultimate mission. Together, they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of war-torn Panem and assassinate President Snow, who’s obsessed with destroying Katniss. What lies ahead are mortal traps, dangerous enemies and moral choices that will ultimately determine the future of millions.
In the new trailer, “We march together”, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) tells Katniss “the game is coming to its end” and I almost cried realizing not only is the game coming to end but so is the franchise. We get a glimpse of all of our favorite characters like Haymitch and Effie Trinket and we see Katniss our heroine marching with her troops to take over the capitol. It is up to Katniss to take down Snow, to take back their lives and add meaning to all of those deaths.
Check out the brand new trailer below and let us know if you are as excited as we are for THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2.
