The Full Cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

May 6 2014 - 11:53am

The next chapter of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, will be divided into two films, and we now know most of the casting additions for the final chapters in the series. This cast has had a bit of a shake-up from its original members, given the untimely death of Philip Seymour Hoffman [1] and Lily Rabe dropping out to make room for another small-screen star. This week, a True Blood star joins the cast, so check out which characters will be back and what new faces we can expect — warning: some light spoilers are ahead!

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen

Of course, Jennifer Lawrence will lead the way once again as Hunger Games heroine Katniss. She won't be back in the arena in Mockingjay, but there are plenty of unexpected obstacles ahead as she leads the rebellion against the Capitol.

Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket

Elizabeth Banks will reprise her role as Effie, the colorful member of the Capitol district who is a firm believer in The Hunger Games.

Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair

Finnick plays a pivotal role in Mockingjay as he joins Katniss's group of rebel forces. He and Katniss develop a mutual respect and friendship as they try to keep each other sane despite being away from their loved ones.

Stef Dawson as Annie Cresta

Stef Dawson is another newcomer to The Hunger Games. She plays Annie, Finnick's long-time love, who has gone slightly crazy after winning her own Hunger Games.

Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark

Josh Hutcherson will be back as Peeta, Katniss's fellow Hunger Games victor and love interest. Peeta and Katniss's relationship is put to the test in Mockingjay in the wake of the rebellion.
