The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of Commander Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.
The film adaptations of Mockingjay have been announced: Part 1 will be released November 21, 2014, and Part 2 will be released November 20, 2015. This follows what the actors in The Hunger Games have been saying about signing on for four films. Based upon Lionsgate's renaming of the film for Catching Fire, it is known that the last films will be called The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. While filming in Atlanta, Georgia it was revealed that both parts will be shot back-to-back.

- Cressida: "-And Pollux. (Pollux smiles and nods to Katniss, who nods in return)
- Boggs: "Let's get locked in." (they take their seats. Katniss glances at Pollux as she sits next to him)
- Katniss Everdeen: (to Pollux)"...You're all from the Capitol? Did Plutarch get you out?"
- Cressida: "Don't expect much chitchat from him- Capitol cut his tongue out years ago. (Pollux smiles weakly and exchanges hand signs with Castor) And no, it wasn't any sort of... rescue, if that's what you mean. We all fled on our own. For this... (smiles) for you."
