“Everybody is thinking about [expanding the franchise], and talking about it,” the director reveals. 
However, he also shares his worries about diving into a Katniss-less world, and having to hype up a whole new set of characters. 
“I just think that one has to go into that world carefully. A huge part of what makes the stories great is that it was really built upon this idea of the consequence of war, and you have an amazing character like Katniss at the center of it,” Lawrence says. “To just say, ‘Oh, we’re still in the Hunger Games world’ is really risky.” 
“You need to make sure that you have something new to say,” Lawrence continued. “New characters need to be created that are just as compelling as Katniss. It’s a tricky thing, but I’m definitely open to talking about it, and I think everybody’s thinking about it. Everybody loves the world, and the ideas.”

I'm personally kind of torn about this idea. Yes, we all want to see more stories from the world of Panem. Perhaps Finnick, Johanna or Haymitch's games? Or the failed rebellion that led up to the creation of The Hunger Games? But this also just sounds like Hollywood's way of milking a successful franchise. I'm in if it's written by our author Suzanne Collins. How about you? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments!
