Any highly-anticipated sequel can get the people psyched with a well-made trailer. But you know a franchise has reached Potter-esque levels of fan obsession when audiences are excited about the trailer for the trailer.

Yes, Lionsgate released a 15-second teaser for the first full preview of Mockingjay Part 1:

Despite it's brevity, the clip packs a punch. Donald Sutherland as the villainous President Snow informs Katniss that "it's the things we love the most that end up destroying us."

Meanwhile Ms. Everdeen looks sad and vaguely pissed off, like she's seeing the Jennifer Lawrence nude photos for the first time.

Speaking of J-Law - last week we caught our first glimpse of the Mockingjay teaser poster. Today, we've been blessed with full-frontal Katniss:

If there's one thing we learned from The Hunger Games stars at this weekend's Comic-Con panel, it's that the new Catching Fire trailer looks dope!

It's there's a second thing, it's that Jennifer Lawrence is a glamorous individual.

Or not.

J-Law and co-star Josh Hutcherson relayed a story to the enormous crowd in San Diego that offered quite a contrast to the officially sanctioned new footage.

"Oh my god, we should've brought that clip with the snot," she exclaimed when asked a question about how hot the kissing scenes in the new film are.

You've seen them on magazine covers, but are you ready to get a look at Katniss and Peeta inside The Hunger Games themselves?

Two new photos have emerged online from the set of the March 2012 blockbuster, one featuring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and the other of Josh Hutcherson as Peeta. It's safe to assume both of these images are courtesy of the titular, death-defying contest itself:

I love this story - and if I had said no, I would regret it every day.

So says Jennifer Lawrence to Entertainment Weekly in that magazine's latest issue. The Winter's Bone star was a controversial choice to portray Katniss Everdeen, mostly due to her age and blonde hair color. But a simple dye job has at least taken care of the latter problem.

Is this the image of Katniss on the big screen you had in mind, readers?

In an interview with the publication, Lawrence laughed because she recounted the experience of being transformed into the novel's main character... and realized it was akin to exactly what Katniss went through as a Tribute.

Jennifer Lawrence cannot WAIT to star in The Hunger Games.

The actress says that while she may not look much like the way Katniss Everdeen is described in the book series, she was a big fan long before she was cast as the character in the film adaptation and can't wait to bring her to life.

She hopes her own Hunger Games fanhood will help, as well. "The cool thing about Katniss is that every fan has such a personal relationship with her, they know and understand her in a singular way," she says. "I'm a massive fan, so I get it."

Director Gary Ross and author Suzanne Collins have spoken out in defense of casting Lawrence as Katniss, despite the perceived physical differences.

"She's incredibly powerful, brave, and tough, and yet she has great tenderness and complexity," says Jennifer, who earned an Oscar nod for Winter's Bone. "It was very humbling hearing that Suzanne and Gary feel I embody those traits."

Other traits she says she embodies? Grittiness and toughness:

"I was a cheerleader for six years, but I have a totally competitive side. I'll wrestle anyone at any time. I was the manliest cheerleader. I had the lowest voice."

The casting rumor has become an official reality for Jennifer Lawrence.

The Wrap reports that this Oscar nominee has been confirmed as Katniss Everdeen, the heroine at the center of Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel series. Lawrence will star in a planned film trilogy that will include The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

The Future Katniss

The role of Katniss caps what has been an incredible year for Lawrence. The 20-year was a relative unknown just a few months ago and then rose prominence in Winter's Bone.

She beat out such other young Hollywood stars as Chloe Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, Saoirse Ronan and Emma Roberts for the part.

What do you think of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss?

What do you think, Hunger Games fans? Would Lawrence make a believable Katniss, provided she dyed her blonde hair dark, of course?
