Katniss Everdeen's journey may be coming to an end, but you'll still be able to relive the experience over and over again. Mockingjay part 2 will bring the Hunger games film franchise to a close as our bow-wielding heroine takes the fight to the capital to determine the future of Panem and its citizens. Hunger games became a world-wide phenomenon and while fans are sad to say goodbye, they aren't the only ones shedding tears since the studio may not be willing to part with it just yet.

Here's the plot synopsis:

With the nation of Panem in a full-scale revolutionary war, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Cressida, (Natalie Dormer), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the District 13 unit as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. Although rebels now control most of Panem, the girl on fire must still overcome one last challenge to win President Snow's "game" - to conquer the Capitol at the risk of losing her friends and loved ones. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games as she realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future of Panem.

Hunger games has been an interesting and insightful franchise and even when the final film is released, many of its stars will move on to bigger and better things. The films have been fun and yet emotional. They resonate with audiences on a personal level and leave you feeling bad for some of the characters or you simply feel happy when the character overcomes an obstacle. While people who aren't familiar with the novels or the story see it as a dystopian tween-soap opera, Hunger games actually deals with important themes such as revolution, war, family, sacrifice, politics, and identity. Revolution has always been the main idea since Katniss started her own personal revolution without even realizing it when she took her sister's place at the reaping, and then again when she refused to kill Peeta so that their could be a single victor and was willing to commit suicide in an act of defiance against the capitol. If you still think Hunger games is boring tween garbage, then you would be urged to read the books or watch the films.

Hunger games has been such a successful franchise that Lionsgate is actively considering a prequel that could focus on a young Haymitch who took part in the Hunger games as well as the war between the Capitol and district 13. Lionsgate sees the oppurtunity to further explore the world and its history by focusing on different characters and storylines, similar to what Warner Bros is doing with fantastic beasts and where to find them which is set to arrive in 2016. For now you can enjoy the final Hunger games film, at least until the prequel arrives.
