The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer - "The Mockingjay Lives"


In "The Hunger Games", Katniss Everdeen became the Girl on Fire when she was willing to sacrifice her own life as District Twelve’s tribute to save her sister from the 74th Hunger Games. Her courage in the Games and her secret romance with fellow tribute, Peeta Mellark, allowed Katniss to survive the deadly arena and return home to District 12 and her family.

Katniss embraces her role as the Mockingjay

In "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", Katniss struggles with the residual scars she still bears from the first Hunger Games. The stakes are considerably raised when she must convince President Snow and the people of Panem that her feelings for Peeta are genuine in order to extinguish the smoldering flames of dissension among the citizens of Panem. In a stunning twist of fate, Katniss finds herself becoming a symbol of inspiration to her people when she and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) are once again forced to become Tributes and meet death in the arena for a second time.

In “Mockingjay Part 1”, the third installment of the epic “Hunger Games” saga, Katniss must rise from the ashes to become something greater still. Although her spirit has been broken and her home destroyed, Katniss must find the strength to survive when she is given a new task: to become the Mockingjay. As the Mockingjay, Katniss is the symbol of hope for her people as they embark on their quest to bring down the Capitol and unite the people of Panem. But will Katniss inspire her people to take up the rebel’s cause, or will her act of defiance finally extinguish the Girl on Fire?
"Mockingjay Part 1" is scheduled to be released November 21, 2014.
