We miss the girl on fire!

It’s hard to believe that The Hunger Games premiered five years ago. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth will forever be Katniss, Peeta, and Gale in our hearts. Even though fans can watch the sequels to the dystopian film, it’s fun to see what the actors looked like in the original!

Did you know that Jennifer almost turned down the role? After the release of the movie, she explained how she knew starring in the franchise would change her life.

“Just saying yes to this one thing could completely change my life, and I don’t know if it’s going to be for the better,” she explained. We’re so glad she took the role because we can’t imagine a different actress playing Katniss!

Since the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, fans are curious if the cast would reunite for a prequel.

“If it felt natural and right and not like a milking-the-cow money grab then I would for sure be down,” Josh said. “I have no qualms at all about that — as long as they don’t create some bad story so they can make some more money.”

Looks like a prequel could be a possibility!
