I firmly believe that if I had watched The Beanie Baby Hunger Games before the actual movie, I would have had a much more emotional viewing experience. I didn't connect too much to the characters on the big screen, but I'll be damned if the plight of Katniss Everbean the Blue Jay didn't stir something in me:
Not to mention: How adorable is it that Gale is the Robin? I mean, come on. The actual film was far too short on Junior Hemsworth, but blah blah blah I know that's just his role in the first book. I enjoyed it though, and I'll see the rest for sure.
Here's hoping we'll get additional, beanified installments!
