Lionsgate has released the first brief clip from the final instalment in the incredibly popular Hunger Games saga, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. In it, District 13’s symbol of rebellion, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), wows to cease all of the grand speeches and finally put an end of President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
She shares this information with Jena Malone’s Joanna Mason – a fan-favourite character who was largely absent from Mockingjay – Part 1, but is expected to play a much larger role in this final film.
Will Katniss and the rebels follow through with their plan? If you’ve read the book you know of course, but the rest of us have to wait until November 20th. In the meantime, you can have a read of the official synopsis below.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence and also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Stanley Tucci, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.
