It’s almost time – “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” hits theaters on November 20. In the final film of the epic dystopian fantasy series based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling YA trilogy, Katniss Everdeen of District 12 will join forces with her closest friends on a mission to liberate the citizens of Panem and assassinate President Snow.
So how did we get here? Ideally you can sit down to binge-watch the previous three movies to get caught up – but if you don’t have the time, or maybe don’t have the emotional energy to sob over Rue again, we’ve put together this quick recap. (Spoilers ahead, of course.)
Get caught up on the most dramatic moments of the “Hunger Games” series, including Katniss volunteering as a tribute for the Games to save her sister Prim, her complicated relationships with Peeta and Gale, and her transformation into the Mockingjay, the symbol of the rebellion.
