The director of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” Francis Lawrence, said that the upcoming movie is a “war movie” and also talked about some of the scenes that he enjoyed the most while filming, in a recent interview. The movie is slated to be released in November 2015.

Francis Lawrence spoke about having to film one more scene for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” and getting the cast back together after about a year for a “mini-reunion.” He was speaking to MTV about his upcoming movie and the video of his interview has been posted on the official YouTube channel of MTV.

The “horrendous” winter in Atlanta is said to have prevented the director from filming one last scene in the movie. The upcoming movie will be a “war movie,” as opposed to the previous movie that was about “manipulation of the media and propaganda.” The fans will get to see more of Panem as the movie will take the viewers out of District 13 for the final war against the Capitol.

Katniss Everdeen will be seen more in control in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” Francis Lawrence explained. The events of the previous movie are said to have “messed up” both Katniss and her friend Peeta. While she sat on the sidelines and was being manipulated in the previous movie, the upcoming movie will see her “fired up in a new way.”

Talking about some of the scenes the director enjoyed making, he described one scene that involved filming in a sewer at the Capitol that the crew members built for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.” The scene apparently took three or four weeks to film and the cast members were not happy on this particular set because they had to shoot in a cramped space with water and very low light.

Francis Lawrence also noted that the ending of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” was “emotional and moving” and at the same time “satisfying.” The director also made it clear that the movie does not end with a “promise of another movie” and this will be the “final” movie of the series that will bring “closure” to the fans who have been following all the movies from the franchise over the years.
