We asked YOU about the new Mockingjay adaptation. Will it stay true to the books? Does it matter? Here’s what you said! Be sure to tell us what you think after you see the movie–in theaters today.

 

“Honestly I hope that the movies don’t stay true to the book a whole lot because I was not a fan of the way Mockingjay was written and how Katniss was portrayed. So I’m hoping the movies are better.”

-Jennifer H.

“I’m excited, although Mockingjay was by far my least favorite of the trilogy and was not a fan of how it ended. I also don’t understand why so many books have to be split into more than one movie. I feel this way about The Hobbit as well. For me it says the industry just wants to make more money and this is a way of doing so.”

“I really hope that it stays true to the book! Though there are some parts that I wouldn’t mind too much if they changed, there are parts that can NOT change or I will die. Literally (well, metaphorically, but all the same.)

“Although I am a story-line purist myself and would love for it to be done verbatim by the story, I’m interested to see the creativity the directors and actors take it, so I can see it from a different reality than what my mind’s portrayal of the book was.”
