And a warning for those who have not read the books — the synopsis is packed with spoilers:
In MOCKINGJAY PARTS 1 & 2, we follow heroine Katniss Everdeen’s journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.
The Mockingjay movies are expected to begin filming in September and run through May 2014. Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence has signed on to helm both movies, and award-winning screenwriter Danny Strong has written the screenplays for both parts.
Audiences got a preview of the second movie, Catching Fire, at the Cannes Film Festival this past weekend. It hits theaters November 22nd.
