District 13 Takes on the Capitol in New Teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

If Panem is not to be messed with, neither is District 13.

 

In the disquieting new teaser for the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt 1, President Snow gives an address to Panem about "unity" while poor brainwashed Peeta and Johanna stand obediently by his side. But then, the mysterious District 13 interrupts the address with an ominous transmission:

"The Mockingjay lives."

 

Collins has clarified that the Mockingjay is a symbol of hope and rebellion throughout the novel trilogy, and that Katniss and the Mockingjay are similar in the sense that they both "should never have existed." And, without giving too much away, District 13 is persona non grata to the Capitol, to the point that they don't even get their own propaganda poster.

 

Check out the Capitol's website for more dystopian creepiness, especially a totalitarian riff on the Gettysburg Address, and be sure to watch the film when it comes out on November 21, 2014.
