A series of new character posters spotlight the “rebel warriors” featured in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” the next installment in the blockbuster film franchise, which is set to arrive in theaters  Nov. 21.

The posters feature Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, in addition to a host of new faces joining the series with the third movie, including Mahershala Ali as Boggs, Evan Ross as Messalla, Wes Chatham as Castor, Elden Henson as Pollux and “Game of Thrones” favorite Natalie Dormer as Cressida.

Last month, a new teaser was released for the film showing how Katniss Everdeen reluctantly finds herself the symbol of rebellion in the world of Panem, and the target of ruthless President Snow.

The clip opens with a conversation between former games maker Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Julianne Moore’s Alma Coin discussing how Katniss (played again by Jennifer Lawrence) is the only person capable of uniting a downtrodden populace terrorized by Donald Sutherland’s Snow.

Adapted from Suzanne Collins’ bestselling post-apocalyptic novels, the “Hunger Games” movies have been box-office giants, with last year’s “Catching Fire” earning more than $854 million worldwide, and they’ve helped transform Lawrence into an international superstar.

Francis Lawrence (no relation), who directed “Catching Fire,” is set to return for the two-part adaptation of the final book in Collins’ trilogy.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” is set for release in 2015.
