“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” the final installment in the  Jennifer Lawrence-starring film franchise, will be shown in IMAX 3-D.

The film, which was shot in two-dimension, will be digitally remastered and released in IMAX 3-D theaters Nov. 20, Lionsgate announced Friday.

The penultimate movie in the quartet, last year’s “Mockingjay – Part 1,” was released in 2-D in North America, but remastered for 3-D for this weekend’s release in China. It is the first film in the franchise to see a 3-D release.

“We recently saw the 3-D version of ‘Mockingjay – Part 1’ before its release in China, and the new level of immersion was really fantastic,” director Francis Lawrence said in a press statement. “Fans will now have the chance to see the film in any format they want, which is exciting.”

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 Everdeen (Lawrence), 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 final film shows Panem in the throes of war, with Katniss as a figurehead for the rebellion. After the events of “Mockingjay – Part 1,” Katniss teams up with Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) on a mission to assassinate Panem’s ruthless President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

Rounding out the cast are Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.
