Two newly-released deleted scenes from “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” offer glimpses of Katniss Everdeen preparing to become the Mockingjay and Peeta Mellark in a tense conversation with President Snow.

The scenes were released Tuesday in time for the film’s digital HD release. The film is due out on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on March 6.

One deleted scene features Effie (Elizabeth Banks) intervening as Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is primped before appearing as the Mockingjay.

“This is the face of a revolution, not some cave painting,” Effie exclaims, chasing Katniss’ makeshift stylists from the room. “Don’t worry Katniss, we’re going to make this work. For you, and for me, and for Cinna.”

In the other scene, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) orders Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) to appeal to the public’s sense of reason in an effort to quell the kindling revolution.

“You know the difference between reality and destructive adolescent fantasies,” Snow tells Peeta in the clip. “You were always the thoughtful one. Less impulsive than Katniss. If Panem follows her arrow into a civil war, we’ll witness something far worse than the dark days.”

Peeta retorts that the Peacekeepers have more blood on their hands than the revolutionaries, but Snow is undeterred.

“My boy, there might be a hundred things in a home that need to be fixed,” Snow says. “That doesn’t justify burning it to the ground. We agree a war might end humanity. Keep saying that, with the sincerity that comes so naturally to you. Mr. Mellark, sometimes in this world, whether we intend it or not, we become symbols. And since I am a symbol of power and formality … I can’t always reach into the living room. That has to come from a friend, from someone people feel they might know. A baker’s son. The sooner these uprisings are put to rest, the sooner you’ll see your home again.”

Check out the deleted scenes in the videos above.

The home video release of “Mockingjay – Part 1” features more never-before-seen footage, interviews with cast and crew, a documentary about the making of the film, a tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman (who died before the film was released), a featurette about curating the film’s soundtrack, and audio commentary from director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson, among other bonus features.

The films, based on the bestselling YA book trilogy by Suzanne Collins, have grossed more than $2.2 billion at the worldwide box office.

The story follows Katniss, a young archer who volunteers to take her sister’s place in a government-mandated televised fight to the death against other impoverished youngsters in a futuristic North American country called Panem.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” the final installment in the franchise, will show Panem in the throes of war, with Katniss as a figurehead for the rebellion. The film, which was shot in two-dimension, will be digitally remastered and released in IMAX 3-D theaters Nov. 20.

    Can't really enjoy any of these clips due to the constant Verizon advertisement music running in the background. Very annoying!
