In Catching Fire, the emotional core of the film revolves around Katniss transitioning from just being a single-minded survivalist as she tries to sort out her attachments to both long-time friend, Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) and Peeta.  Lawrence explains, “we see what each of the boys represents for her:  the eloquence and peace of Peeta and the rebellion and fight in Gale.  How they weigh with Katniss is getting set up hee and so important for the next movie.  I was also really interested in the idea of the awkwardness of Katniss and Peeta in the beginning.  Six months have gone by and we see, “wow, they’ve gotten really disconnected.”  I really like that and Katniss’s reconnection with Gale, then sort of being forced back together with Peeta.  But again to connect to the consequences of war, I love the idea that two people, who have mostly bonded over a shared traumatic experience, are now getting sent back to the Games.  Even though they were falling apart, they go back into this world and start to bond again over this shared trauma.  I’m really pleased with it.  I also think we did some great work on Peeta’s character with Suzanne in helping reconnect them.  There’s a scene on the train  early on when they are on the way to District 11 that I think works really well in reestablishing the connection between them.”

Francis Lawrence, Sci-Fi Magazine (December 2013, pages 44-45)
