Brief Synopsis:
The two final installments in the Hunger Games franchise put together to conclude Katniss' story in an epic and emotional finale that defies blockbuster convention. This edit takes out a lot of footage from the original films, but always in a way that allows the story to flow in a consistent way, while preserving the themes that made this franchise so popular.
Intention:
While I love this franchise, and the Mockingjay films in particular. I felt that, like most people, the decision to split the films hurt the flow of the story for general audiences. By changing the pacing for these films and having a year gap between them, character development suffered greatly, so the emotional beats weren't as effective as they should've been. For example, things that come into play in Mockingjay Part 2, were introduced at the beginning of Mockingjay Part 1, and so, I really think this edit will help with that.
Additional Notes:
I highly recommend seeing The Hunger Games and Catching Fire right before my edit. This franchise is very consistent and the films tightly connected. The story will be much more enjoyable by seeing the "trilogy" back to back.

Cuts and Additions:
- Part 1 is shortened to one hour.
- Plutarch discussion with Alma Coin cuts directly to the hovercraft in District 12. No Boggs carrying Katniss to the hangar in District 13.
- We cut from Katniss leaving the cafeteria, to his nightmare and little chat with Prim. No scene with her and Gale.
- Katniss attempt of propo is shortened to one try.
- The scene with Snow ordering an attack on the hospital in District 8 is cut (like the book, the attack is a surprise). The events on 8 are the same aside from that.
- The hunting scene outside of 13, Peeta's second broadcast, and the second trip to 12 is cut. We go from Gale saying to Katniss they can hunt above ground, to the quarry in 12 (Whch in this version you don't know it's in 12)
- Katniss finds her mom and sister early in this version, there's no scene of Prim rescuing the cat. (Though the cat has an important scene later on, so he's still present in the film)
- After Katniss and Finnick have a little chat, we cut to Katniss in the vents, and Haymitch telling her that they're rescuing the Victors. There's no atempt to do another propo outside.
- The rescue scene and final speech by Coin are cut.
- We go to Katniss in her braceneck to the very first scene in part 2 when she tries to speak.
- The scene with Katniss and Gale kissing in their way to District 2 is cut. (The love triangle aspect is erased in this version)
- The events in District 2 are trimmed. There's no emphasis on loyalists that need to be persuaded, so Katniss speech and her being shot is cut. The relevant events in D2 are Gale's ideas for bombs (keypoint), Gale and Katniss diferences about morality in war, and the downfall of the Capitol's source of weaponry. So we go from the destruction of the mountain to the dinner in the Capitol's mansion.
- There's no scene with Johanna in the hospital (remember Katniss isn't wounded in this version) and there's no scene with Katniss and Peeta in the hospital.
- Once in the Capitol, Caesar broadcast is cut. We have Snow informing that Katniss is dead, and the group decides to go underground.
- The walk underground is trimmed until the scene of the mutts.
- Once in Tigris apartment, the chat between Gale and Peeta is cut. I wanted to make it a quick stop before going to the streets of the Capitol.
- In this version, Gale goes on his own after Katniss ask him about THOSE bombs. There's no "Goodbye Gale"; he knows he fucked it up.
- The last 15 minutes are the same, except for some really minor trims.
