“Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Willow Shields attended the Lionsgate panel in Hall H to discuss the ending of the franchise and answer fan questions.
Conan O’Brien moderated the panel, which also featured director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson. After some brief introductions a full-length trailer for the final movie in the franchise was shown to much applause from the audience.
One panel highlight was the moment the cast members were asked to whistle the mockingjay signal. Attempts by the cast were admirable but they all admitted that whenever they tried it always ended up sounding like the “X-Files” tone. Hutcherson was able to imitate a squirrel, which caused O’Brien to immediately ask, “How did you find out that you could do that!”
The final installment of the “Hunger Games” franchise opens Nov. 20.
