Confirming a long-time rumor that the third and final Hunger Games book, Mockingjay, would be split into two films — the studio also gave fans specific release dates to look forward to.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is slated for release November 21, 2014. Part 2 will follow a year later, on November 20, 2015.
This means the next three Hunger Games movies will be released one year apart — and that a rigorous filming schedule is likely ahead for the cast and crew. With such a tight turnaround, it’s also possible that both Mockingjay films will be filmed simultaneously.
The second movie in the series, Catching Fire, will be filmed later this year, with a release date of November 22, 2013.
