She just can’t wait to be tribute?

The newest poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire seems to be nodding quite firmly to a most unexpected influence ‐ Disney’s The Lion King. While we can’t quite remember any sort of magical jagged rock in Suzanne Collins’ bestselling YA book series, it certainly looks like Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is hanging out on Pride Rock, surveying all the land that belongs to her, and plotting to overthrow her mean Uncle Scar ‐ or is that just us? At least this new poster also includes a nice cloud-based nod to Katniss’ budding wings, as it looks like our very own Mockingjay just might take flight, until you realize, nope, those are just clouds. Fine then, Katniss, do it your way.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters on November 22nd. [Press Release]
