The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 will be in theatres everywhere Friday November 20th, and my family and I can’t wait! I have been a fan of the book series since I first read them years ago, and in fact a review of The Hunger Games book was one of my earliest blog posts back in 2010. My kids have all read the books more than once, and we are eagerly awaiting the final installment in the series later this month.
This movie covers the final battle of the citizens of Panem with the capital, as Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) teams up with her closets friendsÂ including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) on a mission to liberate the Capital.Â No fan will want to miss the chance to see their favorite characters in the final epic movie.
My family and I are going to be watching the movie opening weekend for sure – after all we have been waiting an entire year for this movie! The challenge for us has been figuring out the logistics of getting to the movie together, since my middle daughter is away at college and we have to juggle multiple work schedules. But we have figured out the Saturday afternoon of opening weekend will work for all of us, so we can see it together as a family just like we enjoyed the previous 3 movies.Â The movie is sure to be very popular, so we are going to buy advanced sale tickets to make sure we get into the movie showing that fits into our schedule.
I love the themes of the series, and that fact that it is not as simplistic as some Young Adult series are. The series clearly shows the problems of violence, and that it damages everyone who is exposed to it. Through it all Katniss is just trying to survive and keep her family intact, as she is driven by her love of her mother and her sister Prim. Check out the trailer below:
