The final trailer for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” has debuted, showing Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen coming into her own as a symbol of hope for the oppressed citizens of Panem.

In “Catching Fire,” recent Oscar winner Lawrence reprises her role as the heroic Katniss, who inadvertently foments rebellion after emerging victorious from the brutal Hunger Games, a televised battle to the death staged as entertainment in a dystopian future.

In the new film, a surprise turn of events lands Katniss and her co-victor, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), back in the battle arena, with Donald Sutherland’s evil President Snow determined to bring down the resourceful archer.

“She’s struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after the games while living in Victor’s Village, where she never wants for food, and feels useless. She’s adapting to a new life,” Lawrence said of her character’s evolution during San Diego Comic-Con International.

Directed by Francis Lawrence (“Water for Elephants,” “I Am Legend”), the film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and Stanley Tucci.

The second installment in Lionsgate’s planned four-movie series based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling young adult trilogy is due in theaters Nov. 22.
