We could not wait for the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second film in The Hunger Games trilogy, and thought it would be fun to map out the Districts in the movie, as if Panem actually existed.
Our beloved Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson) both come from District 12, which covers areas in South Carolina (Lawrence) and Virginia (Hutcherson).
Haymitch Abernathy (Harrelson) has roots in District 10, corresponding to parts of Texas.
Cinna (Kravitz) comes from District 11, which we mapped to Georgia and the books author (Collins) has ancestors in Indiana, also known as District 3.
For our friends up North, President Coriolanus Snow (Sutherland) has ties to District 13, which is the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be exploring these Districts, and their related States, a little closer as we highlight key collections and other items of interest from each of these areas.
