“The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family.”

Four years after Jennifer Lawrence first appeared on the big screen as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Lionsgate’s critically acclaimed series based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling book trilogy comes to a thrilling resolution in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, which is now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack + Digital HD, DVD + Digital and On Demand.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen, who began her journey fighting to survive the brutal Hunger Games, and rose to lead the rebellion against Panem’s tyrannical president (Donald Sutherland). Now, Katniss and a team of rebels from District 13 prepare for the epic battle that will decide Panem’s future.

Based on the third novel in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, the must-own limited edition Blu-ray release is packed with over five hours of special features, including the “Pawns No More: Making The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2” 8-part documentary which provides an in-depth look at the making of the film from production design, costumes, hair, make-up, stunts, special effects and post production. The documentary also includes a touching piece from the last day of shooting in which the cast reflects on their experience shooting the four films. 

Also included is a detailed look at Cinna’s sketchbook and a walk through the on-set photography along with audio commentary by director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson. The Blu-ray is encoded in Dolby TrueHD and features a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack, which delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD is currently available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively at major retailers nationwide in addition to online at Amazon.

Our Thoughts:

We took our daughter to see this in the theater and the costumes, scenery and effects are astonishing! We made Rose read all the books before she was able to see the first movie - that is very important to us since a lot of movies take creative liberty with the story lines. The bonus materials on the Blu-ray combo pack are simply amazing and kept us coming back to watch more and more each time. I love the behind the scenes documentaries - I even got a bit emotional listening to the cast reflecting back on their journey during the 4 films on their last day filming. The bonus materials are spectacular and add to the richness of the film by being able to see and experience what goes into making a film series of this magnitude - they did an excellent job!
