DISCLAIMER FROM THE ARTICLE WRITER

I want to say now, this book series affected me more than Harry Potter, and I LOVE HARRY POTTER. It haunted me for two weeks after reading it and I’m not lying when I say that. This trailer, because of the content involved is making me cry (sob more like it). So if you have a deep love for Katniss and Prim, and Katniss’ desire to keep her sister out of the games and alive, here is your three-minute warning to grab some tissues before watching the trailer.

***

Mockingjay Part 2 will no doubt pick up where the first left off. Peeta is still high on tracker jacker venom in the Capitol’s attempt to turn him into a weapon to kill Katniss. Together, they head off to infiltrate the Capitol and along the way gain more allies, and take over District 2, the weapons. There they learn special tricks, and begin building their own army. But when they get to the Capitol, they find out (to prevent further attacks) the Capitol is engineered like a game arena, complete with booby traps of its own. The rest…well, the rest is depressing.

The new trailer features a shadow warrior Katniss, in almost fanmade tribute style video editing, depicting Katniss’ and Prim’s deep love for one another, and how close they really were. It showcases the most prominent scenes for the two in little memory like sequences. The music sets the tone of how one is feeling while watching them. If you think you’re strong enough, here is the trailer.

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will hit theaters November 20, 2015.

Also, here is an additional trailer I just found that released a month ago called “We March Together”. It shows a lot of new footage from the first, including that scene with the little silver parachutes…

Katniss Takes Over Capitol.pn and Twitter

New footage for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is sure to come out at San Diego Comic-Con (which officially begins tomorrow), but fans of the franchise are getting some treats a day early via the movie’s official Twitter account!

A newly released teaser video (which you can view below) features a stoic Katniss standing atop a statue of what has become the rebellion sign. The short video ends with the message “Standby for a message from District 13”, which no doubt is being broadcasted out to the Capitol, Snow, and the rebellion districts by Beetee.

In another tweet we get a good look at the red suit of fierceness that Katniss donned in the teaser:

And if you head over to Capitol.pn, the official site for the Capitol, you can see that the rebellious followers of Katniss Everdeen have begun tagging and infiltrating the site!

The Mockingjay Part 2 panel is scheduled from 12pm to 1:15pm tomorrow in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.  It will be moderated by Conan O’Brien.

It’s safe to guess the next installment of the rebellion propaganda will debut online shortly before or after the panel.

And as for new content, here’s to hoping that we get to see more of the 76th Capitol Hunger Games and interaction between Peeta and Katniss (since the last time those two were together, things didn’t end too well!).

Love Kat’s new look? Let us know in the comments below!

Tea Review: Peeta Blend

created by: Cara McGee

“I do the cakes,” he admits to me. “The cakes?” I ask. I’ve been preoccupied with watching the boy from District 2 send a spear through a dummy’s heart from fifteen yards. “What cakes?” “At home. The iced ones, for the bakery,” he says…. “It’s lovely. If only you could frost someone to death,” I say.

Inspired by The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins which I am in no way affiliated with. This is created purely for my own enjoyment.

My Review:

The Peeta blend smells deliciously sweet in the bag (in this case, the tin) with the vanilla green and almonds at the forefront of the fragrance. I let it steep for about 5 minutes. In the cup, the vanilla and almond are still quite strong, but the chocolate chai scent complements nicely.

Upon the first mouthful, this blend is quite mellow to me, maintaining its sweetness without being overpowering, the almond and chai giving it just the tiniest bite afterward. I plan on brewing another cup and adding milk and sugar to see how it goes. I think this could also be quite good iced.
