Catching Fire Gets A Name Change

Since the release of The Hunger Games in theaters, we have been waiting for any news about Catching Fire. Did I mention waiting? And waiting….and hold on, did I just read an article with news about Catching Fire? Ah, yes! It ain’t much, (pardon the Texan in me) but at least it’s something! According to, the sequel will experience a slight change of name.

Lionsgate has announced a minor title change for the second part of their blockbuster franchise. Formerly titled Catching Fire, the Francis Lawrence-directed sequel to this year’s The Hunger Games will now be called The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Maybe when Mockingjay is released it will be call The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: Mockingjay. Or maybe not. It would be extremely hilarious.

Though unconfirmed, it is an almost certainty that the third chapter, (likely to be released as two separate films) will follow suite and will hit theaters as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

Looks like my dream Mockingjay movie title just got shot out of the sky. Send me your thoughts on this name change and any news your dying to hear about. Just counting down the days….546!

  1. I honestly this its the stupidest idea ever!! I mean really I though we were trying to get away from all this twilight stuff, and we seem to be going in that direction anyways. I’m surprised they didn’t say it was going to be called “The Hunger Games Saga: Catching Fire” I mean really? Catching Fire as the title is just fine! any doubts just go ask the fandom worldwide!

    • I wouldn’t necessary consider it stupid. I think it’s a way to help the general public understand that it is the next installment of the series. Just think of it like Harry Potter and the blah blah blah. It makes sense to me, but there are always two sides of the same coin. Good opinion!(:

  2. i guess it’s good though in a way because otherwise non-fans would have no idea that it was the sequel to The Hunger Games. 😀

  3. It’s no normal why is everyone freaking out? Its like harry potter and the prizioner of azkaban, harry potter and the half blood prince, harry potter and the blah blah blah. This is the way many movie series goes, why is it so stupid?

    • The titles you just listed were already the titles of the Harry Potter books in the first place. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was not already the title of the second book in the HG trilogy in the first place. 😉
