While the cast may have only finished filming the final instalment in the series, the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 has been released.
Last weekend marked the beginning of the end for the massive Hunger Games franchise, and its loyal fans. Director Francis Lawrence tweeted his goodbye to the series on Sunday with producer Nina Jacobson and the official Twitter account promoting the trailer release with the hashtag #Unite.

In case you need a recap before watching the latest trailer, here’s what was going on when we left Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and her squad of rebels.
Basically, while the whole gang were reunited, things weren’t so great for Katniss in the romance department. Her kind-of love interest Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) has been brainwashed and pretty much wants her dead. She’s got bigger things to worry about though as her efforts to save Panem from evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland) are going to be pretty time consuming.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is set to be released on 20 November 2015.
But it’s possible that the coming instalment may not be the last we see of the franchise. Lionsgate said earlier this year that they are developing possible prequel and sequel Hunger Games movies. The entertainment company said about the films previously “the mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.”
