Welcome back, Katniss Everdeen.
The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 debuted Sunday night. While Lionsgate did not host a panel at Comic-Con, it did put together some special events to promote the upcoming third installment in the mega-YA franchise, including premiering the first trailer on Friday.
Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss, who has been recruited by the rebel District 13 to help inspire the people of Panem to fight against their corrupt government, The Capital.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, Mockingjay is an adaptation of the first half of Suzanne Collins’ third book. It’s also the first book to not feature an actual Hunger Games (where teens are forced by the government to fight one another to the death), focusing only on the political rebellion.
The final installment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, will hit theaters one year later, on November 20, 2015. Watch the Mockingjay — Part 1 trailer above:
