In the first official look at the upcoming movie, Mockingjay, was released through the movie’s website In the teaser, we get President Snow (Donald Sutherland) talking ot the people of Panem about unifying against the rebellion while Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) stands next to him.

Of course, Snow uses elegant words to hide the fact that there is a rebellion brewing and that he’s not worried that everything that he’s built could be coming to an end. You can read what he says below.

“Since the dark days, our great nation has known only peace. Ours is an elegant system conceived to nourish and protect,” Snow says to his people. “Your districts are the body. The Capitol is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return we feed and protect you. If you resist assisting, or starve yourself, if you fight against it, it is you who will bleed. I know you’ll stand with me – with us – with all of us. Together as one.”
“Panem today, Panem tomorrow, Panem forever,”

While of course this is not the official trailer and offers no images from the movie, it does get you pumped up for it’s imminent release. The advertising tactic was brilliant as it appears that Snow is talking to us as if we were members of Panem, which goes along with what the website was meant to do. While it’s not really clear if this is an official scene from the movie, it does the stand the chance that it will be considering Snow makes a few of these videos with Peeta while he’s there.

This teaser comes as no surprise as the movie wrapped yesterday. Fans had been wondering when we would see the first footage as we first looks were released before the movie wrapped. Producer Nina Jacobsen Tweeted a photo of the stars in a group hug after the film had wrapped and it does nothing but give you chills as you know the series is coming to an end.

A lot of fans have been speculating about Peeta and whether or not he’s going to be the villain in this movie considering some of the images that have been released. Fans of the books know the truth behind that but it’s no surprise that they would be promoting Peeta in the way that they are.

Mockingjay Pt. 1 stars Jennifer Lawrence, Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Sutherland and is set to come out November 21st.
