The rebellion in Panem is surging forward with the release of the new official teaser trailer for the highly anticipated film, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1.’ The trailer, titled ‘Our Leader the Mockingjay,’ chronicles how the citizens and government officials in the utopian country that’s led by a totalitarian dictatorship are dealing with the newly launched rebellion.
‘Our Leader the Mockingjay’ follows Plutarch Heavensbee, the Head Gamemaker of the 75th Hunger Games who is now the leader of the rebellion movement in the Districts, as he tries to convince President Alma Coin, the leader of District 13, that Katniss can unite the citizens of Panem. Meanwhile, President Snow, who has forbidden the use of the Mockingjay symbol across his districts in Panem, has sent out his army to stop the rebellion. But that hasn’t stopped Katniss from agreeing to help lead her fellow Panem citizens in battle.
