Spending All Year With the Mockingjay

Slowly the trickle of movie merch is coming upon us. Today we see a preview of the Mockingjay Part 2 2016 Calendar (available on Amazon US and UK).

The cover art is reminiscent of a lot of Mockingjay Part 1 merch – with the additions of Peeta (because we would riot if it didn’t) and Boggs (yay!). We’ve seen some fans sad about the absence of Finnick. We agree Finnick is more of a fan favorite character, so it’s an interesting choice. We wonder if her inclusion is 1) because they had her image anyway from last year’s merch so why not? 2) The hair and tatoos. Everyone loves the hair and tatoos.

We don’t mind Cressida’s inclusion because it balances out the genders a bit more as well. We know the movie has lots of women in all kinds of roles, and this gives a better impression than that tired 1 woman, lots of guys scenario that seems to be the norm in blockbuster movies.

Inside, there’s some new rebel propaganda art and those great character posts. (May looks like it’s all yours Finnick!)

We love those character posters, and pairing them with red/black propaganda makes this a more cohesive calendar than in year’s past when various stills were used. But damn, it we kind of wish there were some stills in here simply BECAUSE WE’D LIKE SOME MORE STILLS RELEASED. But hey, that should be happening soon. We hope.

We don’t think the calendar makers really thought about these things when assigning months to the different images, but placing Prim in December made us a little teary. Cause by most fan timelines of Mockingjay that we’ve seen. Prim dies in December. WHY ARE YOU SO CRUEL,CALENDAR?

Time for a tissue or two, and this is just a CALENDAR.
