Taking a page from the book Twilight and Harry Potter, the final chapter of Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay, will be split into two films and released almost exactly a year apart.
According to Deadline, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is penciled in for Nov. 21, 2014, while its follow-up The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will follow on Nov. 20, 2015.
Of course, before we can even get to that there’s still The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to get to. The second part of the saga is due in theaters Nov. 22, 2013, which means we’re looking at three straight Thanksgivings with Katniss and co. (Hey, that’s better company than a lot of us get on Thanksgiving!) As was previously reported, the original cast is already on board for Catching Fire, while Francis Lawrence is replacing Gary Ross, helmer of the original March blockbuster, in the director’s chair.
