“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” will arrive eight months after the passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Much has been made of how the filmmakers planned to work around his absence for the rest of “Part 2,” all while looking past the work that had already been done.

Thankfully, the latest trailer pays homage to the great actor’s fine work as Plutarch Heavensbee in the first part of the final chapter.

In the new minute-long teaser, Heavensee shows his faith in Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence).

“We need to unite these people out there. She’s the face of this rebellion. They’ll follow her,” he tells President Coin (Julianne Moore).

From there, the preview spotlights the way Panem is splitting apart at the seams, as destruction reigns and Donald Sutherland’s voice can be heard banning the Mockingjay symbol.

Other than the final “Hunger Games” movies, Hoffman’s final work comes in “A Most Wanted Man,” a new film out in limited release now.

“Mockingjay – Part 1” will arrive on November 21! Check out the trailer and weigh in below!
