As caught up as we are in the prospect of old school, never-before-seen footage coming our way in The Hunger Games 4-Film Collection, it’s also pretty damn exciting that we’re getting Mockingjay Part 2 special features for the first time, as well!
Today, we got not one but TWO Mockingjay Part 2 DVD extras to drool over. Observe!
First, check out the story behind Johanna’s bald cap!
We love this. LOVE IT. Why? Because Jena Malone was ready to go all way. She wanted to shave her head for ten months for five scattered days of shooting. But when that was shot down, she went through a pretty grueling bald cap process to get an authentic look. Holy fuck, that is a ride or die kind of chick if I’ve ever seen one!
We’re really glad Johanna was bald. It wasn’t necessary, but it was a stark reminder of the torture the Rebellion members received in Capitol. So bless Francis and Jena for going there, seriously!
Of course, most of these sites are trying to keep their exclusive by refusing to include embeddable video– Get ads on video embeds and get with the times, CraveOnline– so you can click the picture below to watch the second clip about the mutt attack!
While we admittedly don’t pay THE MOST attention to set design, it’s really cool to see how, even though the scene obviously required special effects, a lot of the shriek-worthy fear we experienced was actually due to a wonderful location and expert lighting. And DAMN was it effective!
There’s always a few humorous gems behind the scenes and sadly those are missing here. But fear not! We’ll devour them and every other moment when the Blu-ray comes!
Featurette Obsessions Are Totally Legit, Right? Right?!
