Hunger Games’ Francis Lawrence Explains Why He ‘Totally Regrets’ Splitting Mockingjay Into Two Parts

October 13, 2023 - Movies

After the Harry Potter films split the final book in the series, The Deathly Hallows, into two separate films, tons of book adaptations followed in its footsteps in the years to follow, including the ending of The Hunger Games movies, Mockingjay. As Francis Lawrence, the director behind both Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2 (along with Catching Fire), returns to the franchise for its upcoming prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the filmmaker shared some remorse over the controversial decision.  

A popular opinion among Hunger Games fans is the thought that Mockingjay really didn’t need to be split into two movies, and it didn’t do them any favors. The decision felt like one motivated by making more money on the franchise on its way out than anything else. Here’s what Lawrence said about the whole thing now: 

I totally regret it. I totally do. I’m not sure everybody does, but I definitely do.
