Lionsgate released a new still from The Hunger Games: Catching featuring Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Haymitch Abernathy.
In an interview with io9.com, Director Francis Lawrence discussed about recasting Buttercup, Prim’s cat, in the Catching Fire. If you recall, the cat in the first film is black and white.
io9: One of the first big changes I noticed from Hunger Games toCatching Fire was that you recast the cat. Why did you recast the cat?
Francis Lawrence: You know what that was actually, and I was happy to do it, that was a request from Nina the producer and Suzanne the author. That they thought the cat from the first movie was not the way he was described in the book. And that had annoyed a bunch of fans, and things like that. But it also just kind of bothered them that Buttercup was not a black and white cat. So I was happy to get one that felt like the Buttercup of the book.
It’s funny because now people are split. Some people think we should have continued on with what happened in the first movie. And some people are really happy. You never win.
Here’s a photo of Prim with Buttercup in Catching Fire. Looks like the cat is now how he was described in the book.
