*Sneak Peek of The Divergent Series: (00:04:08:17)
Almost 11 minutes of deleted scenes! From the titles and the scene numbers, we can certainly start to make guesses as to what each contains. Our favorite is Scene 56 “We’re still in the game” as we assume this is the discussion between Haymitch and Katniss about how they both broke their deal to keep Peeta safe. It’s one we definitely missed the most in the theatrical version, so we are so happy it’s being included.
We are scratching our head trying to figure out if the “Finnick Odair in his underwear” scene is included among these scenes. It isn’t specifically listed, but it could be hidden in one of the other scenes, just to surprise us. Maybe even the aforementioned “We’re still in the game” as that would be occurring before her trip to District 8, as would the Finnick scene. As that scene tracks over a minute long, maybe it’s somehow in there? We’re going to keep our fingers crossed that it’s lurking somewhere!
Continuing our detective work, thanks to a Collider interview with Francis Lawrence we know there was a full scene in a meadow in District 13 that was cut, so perhaps that is the sequence labled “Hummingbird”? That scene is listed as over two minutes in length, so the time definitely fits a full cut.
There is another full sequence between Peeta and President Snow that was filmed that Donald Sutherland mentioned as one of favorite scenes. During this interview with Hit Fix he discusses it in detail, even mentioning it contains the words “I’m not asking!” So it looks like we are definitely going to get to see it!
Do you have thoughts on what the other scenes might contain? Which are you most looking forward to seeing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Mockingjay Part 1 arrives in the US on HD Digital on February 17th and on Blu-ray/DVD on March 6th.
