Habitants of the post-apocalyptical world of Panem, land of The Hunger Games, have gained massive followings amongst our youth. Last year, with the release of the full trilogy, Suzanne Collins’s creation spawned a gigantic industry, filled with Twitter-based Katniss profiles and massive fan sites.
This year, as the movie release date got closer, more exciting news started coming out. If you havent heard of these yet, you’ve been living under a Mockingjay-covered rock.
