“I never asked for this,” Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) tells President Snow in the new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2. “I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta alive.” We all know that the Peeta mention was just an afterthought—poor boy can’t help but trigger every Games trap in his stumblings—because the real relationship at the core of the Hunger Games trilogy isn’t Team Peeta or Team Gale, but Team Everdeen. Everything Katniss has done, from her blurted-out “I volunteer as tribute!” to storming the Capitol, was for her little sister Primrose.
Don’t watch this trailer unless you want to be hit with all the feels as you see the entire history (that is, clips from the past three movies) of Katniss and Prim: cute little moments before the first Reaping, then their interactions turned graver as Katniss becomes the symbol of the rebellion and Prim joins the fight in her own way. And considering what readers know of Mockingjay… no spoilers, but this is really cruel, Lionsgate.
Get ready for the Hunger Games saga to come to a close on November 20!
