The first part of Hunger Games: Mockingjay is slated to premiere Nov. 21, 2014, while Part 2 will hit theaters on Nov. 20, 2015. As previously announced, the second film in the franchise, Catching Fire, will debut Nov. 22, 2013.
The series stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, who was pit against 23 other tributes in a televised fight to the death during the first film. The second film will see her return home with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) — but a rebellion is brewing, and the upcoming 75th Hunger Games could have a serious effect on the country of Panem.
