After three years-worth of movies on the big screen, the Hunger Games franchise is coming to an end this year with the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. That means that this was the last chance for the studio to make a big deal out of the series’ presence at San Diego Comic-Con… and they delivered in a big way. Check out the video below!
As you can see, the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 began with a literal bang this afternoon, as a crew of drummers came out to bang a beat on a set of timpani drums. This was followed by a crew of drummers also appearing right behind the section that I was sitting in – as you can see in the video. The performance ended with a special announcement from District 13, and while I couldn’t record that, the good news is that Lionsgate has officially released it:
Of course, that was just the beginning of all the excitement. After the lights came back on, Conan O’Brien arrived on stage as the moderator for the presentation, and he introduced a line-up that included director Francis Lawrence, producer Nina Jacobson, Josh Hutcherson, Willow Shields, Liam Hemsworth, and Jennifer Lawrence (who received a deafening applause upon her arrival). You can watch it all happen in the video below!
So there you have it, folks. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to San Diego Comic-Con this year, hopefully these videos will help make you feel like you did!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is the finale of the Hunger Games franchise, and will find the heroic Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) unite the people of Panem in a mission to dismantle the totalitarian rule of President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Natalie Dormer, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Gwendoline Christie, Jena Malone, Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elden Henson, and Staney Tucci also star, and you’ll be able to catch them all in theaters when the movie lands on November 20th.
