    You guys know that she is a fan of the book even before they announced there was going to be a movie right?
    She’s just like us.. she doesn’t want the movie to ruin the book so she’ll be the perfect Katniss..

    Finally! Hunger Games is turning into a movie! Four, to be precise. And ever since I found out about Jennifer Lawrence starring as Katniss, I have been searching the globe for more info on her! She is the perfect Katniss, and the movie has the perfect cast. “May the odds be ever in your favor!”

    i think she could make a descent katniss… but her pony tail in the poster is wrong katniss’ hair is longer and her pony tail goes down her back and not over her well her eyes are grey not blue. her age dosen’t really matter (so many actor and actressess play roles of people who aren’t the same age and it turns out fine)i think the make up people are going to do there job and shes going to look right (as long as they fix her hair). on a different note josh hutcherson is not right to play peeta at all he looks to much like him and i think alex pettefer would have been the perfect fit for this movie first of all because he is natually blonde and has naturally wavy hair he has the perfect face to be peeta(meaning he is extremly sexy in a im not trying way). everyone else is a perfect fit and wal well cast. im very excited for this movie to come out :)

  10. Rhiannon Says:

    I think the looks amazing, i think she will play an amazing katniss and that she doesnt look too old, she looks perfect.


  11. KP Says:

    I THINK the cast and the characters together are awful:)


  12. jaquelynne Says:

    isent katniss’s hair the book a little longer? and i thin she would look better if she wasnt so tan and had the silver/grey eyes.


  13. Laura Says:

    She looks too old!! I thought that she was gonna look grest as Katniss, but now I don’t think so. Anyway, I think the worst choice is the actor of Peeta. I like Peeta and I like Josh Hutcherson, but at least physically they’re so DIFFERENT! I really don’t wanna see Josh as a blond. He’s gonna look awful. Ew!


  14. Cyncyn Hernandez Says:

    she’s so beautiful.. and looks so fierce !! PERFECT.! except for her eyes… they should’ve made it brown..


  15. kristen Says:

    YAY! She’s beautiful and determined. This is our perfect Katniss!
