You GUYS! We've seen a couple of set photos, but now EW has released the first official image of Katniss in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

Book readers are gonna check a whole ton of spoilers from this simple-looking SPOILERS, obviously! You've been warned, guys.

Here's the first official image of Katniss in Mockingjay:

So what can we tell from this first look at Katniss in Mockingjay? Well...

1. Her arrows have different colored shafts

Book readers will know that Beetee makes Katniss a custom bow for the rebellion. The arrows are either normal, explosive or fire-starting, depending on the colors of their tips. Katniss is an incredible archer - and this secret weapon is gonna make her L.E.T.H.A.L.


2. Katniss does not look happy

Peeta's gone, so Katniss heads into Mockingjay minus her main emotional support. Oh, and she's in mortal peril as the reluctant leader of a revolution. She's upset and angry...but don't worry - this never prevents her from being the badass we love.


3. Is this Katniss' Mockingjay Uniform?

Remember, Cinna has been dragged off (and apparently killed) by the Peacekeepers. In the book, Cinna designs her Mockingjay Uniform before he dies. The description - which I always find really touching - could fit the bill for this pic:

'a black uniform. Only one person could have designed the outfit, at first glance utterly utilitarian, at second a work of art...carefully tailored layers of body armor, the hidden weapons in the boots and belt, the special reinforcements over my heart'

This seems more likely from the fact that we've already seen a set photo of Katniss, Peeta and Gale in battle-style fatigues:

Oh, and they're gonna need that fighting know what I'm talking about! From the looks of our badass heroine - thanks EW! - November 21 can't come soon enough...

PLEASE comment below if there's stuff I missed in this picture, I'd love to know what you guys think!
