How are they gonna do when the book is pretty short.

Oh my gosh, 2015? That just seems soooo far away….. I really think that Catching Fire should have been the one being split, but I’m not complaining since we get to see that whole book play out sooner.

omgggg!!!!!!! thank you Goooood!!!!!!!! now i can try to be an extra!! graduating from hs this year!!! <3 i love this trilogy

While I agree with Amanda that 2015 seems superrrr far away I still love the idea.I think it will give them more time to tell the story,which is one of the most important ones in the series.Will they stop the first when they rescue Peeta and than find out that he hates Katniss?Not sure but that would be AWESOMEEEE!!!!!!I think that if they had split Catching Fire,it also would have been smart but no way that I waiting to 2012 just to see all 5 movies!!!hahahaha So yea all in all love the idea and can’t wait!

Everyone over at JJ are saying this is pointless and that THG is copying Harry Potter & Twilight. That’s ridiculous.

I’m just happy that there will be three more THG films.

What! That release date is forever away and spliting the films is just crazy! In a way it is good so they can get alot more of the book jammed into a film but I really dont mind sitting at the cinemas for 6 hours watching the whole film at once.. It sucked with Harry Potter because I had to re watch part 1 before I watched part 2 and I didnt even bother with Twilight.. I hope this trend doesnt keep catching on =(

Hi my name is Flavia and I’m from Brazil, I love the site Just Jared Jr.! is super cool! congratulations! I’m super excited for all movies! Kisses from a fan from Brazil!

Okay. I am a fan of the Hunger Games, but this is ridiculous. Just like splitting Breaking Dawn into 2 movies. I have READ BOTH Mockingjay and Breaking Dawn and they DO NOT need to be split into 2 movies…it’s crazy what some people will do for some more money.

Oh and I am a Harry Potter fan also and trust me, the last book HAD to be split into 2 movies…..there is no possible way that it could have been one movie without cutting out CRUCIAL parts.

ella @ 5:49 pm on 07/11/2012

This was announced way back before the first film even came out. I don’t see why the book needs to be split, Katniss spends most of it passing out right when the action is about to get started.

My 2 Cents @ 8:58 pm on 07/11/2012

Awesome. That will do the books justice.

theresa @ 11:42 pm on 07/11/2012

i am happy that there will be more films! But i think they should have split catching fire not mockingjay, but i trust them and hope it will be good.

stop hating on twilight…should not be split..means we have to wait longer…grrrr…love both movies..twilight a bit more but thats my opinion..wish they didnt split movies now i am going to go crazy waiting and waiting!!!!!

Beth @ 12:36 pm on 07/12/2012

Like and dislike.
Like – more JHutch screen time!
Dislike – ONE BLEEPING YEAR?!?! Why not 6 months like Harry Potter?
Also, I’ll be 24 when the final one comes out. 2015 is so far away!
