Episode 93 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, January 28, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include Ellie from Down with the Capitol, Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Courtney of Welcome to District 12, Rebekah of Victor’s Village, and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Over Thirty.
We had a nice week off last week, but we’re ready to get back into the swing of things! We have a super fun, jam-packed show planned, so we hope you’ll be able to tune in live! Here’s what’s on our agenda:
- Since we couldn’t get to them last time, we’ll kick things off by sharing some of your comments about the Entertainment Weekly cover and Catching Fire stills.
- Ellie from Down with the Capitol will fill us in on her experience as an audience member during Jennifer Lawrence’s episode of Saturday Night Live. She also has a special Victory Tour 2013 announcement to make!
- We’ll then discuss the news that Jennifer Lawrence shared in a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph: There’s still more Catching Fire filming to be done! Principal photography will apparently continue and then officially wrap sometime in March.
- We’ll also talk about the surprising announcement that On Location Vacations made on Friday, January 25, about Catching Fire filming for two days in Ringwood State Park, NJ. Why New Jersey? And why now? We’ll share our thoughts!
- In light of several recent discussions surrounding the release of the Entertainment Weekly cover, we’ll attempt to answer the question: Why is Finnick such an important character? We’d love to know YOUR answers, so please leave a comment below telling us about the role you think Finnick plays in the series, why he’s so beloved, etc.
- We’ll also speculate about how Effie’s character might be changed for the films.
- At 10:45pm ET, we’ll be joined by Valerie Estelle Frankel, author of Katniss the Cattail: An Unauthorized Guide to Names and Symbols in Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. You can read our review here. We can’t wait to talk to Valerie about her book and love of The Hunger Games and heroines in general. If you have any questions for Valerie, leave them in a comment here and we’ll do our best to bring them up on the show!
