Apparently the reaping scene is complete, and they are now moving to DuPont State Forest to begin filming the scenes in the arena!
ohhh. I really can’t wait for some shots of the actors in the arena.
Kinda looks like the USAs bald eagle! Cool, but creepy thar it “belongs” to that Capitol too!
@Mel, sadly I don’t think we will be seeing any shots from the arena because they’ll be in the woods and papparazi/fans won’t be able to get in the woods to get pics
That is crazy cool. My friend has a picture of Disctric 12′s train/station. It’s so neat!!
aww that looks awesome
EXCITED!!!!! (^.^) But for some weird reason never imagined the seal like that haha
BUT I LOOOOVE IT!!!!
See the twelve feathers surrounding the eagle? That, my friends, is called symbolism. Fantastic.
Wow, it’s all going so fast now!
Love the seal
OMG I ADORE THE SEAL!
The only thing I don’t like is the arrows.
Um yeah… I understand the symbolism with the arrows… but… yeah…
Who would put that on their seal?
The seal is clearly supposed to be bassed on the United States seal. Though, it only has arrows, and no olive branches, symbolizing only war and not peace.
The United States has arrows on its seal.
Wow. I never pictured the seal like that. But now that I’ve seen this, I cant recall how i used to picture the
Ahhh so exciting. It looks good.
@ SUUS so what did they do when they had 13 districts?
I’m also loving the grains of wheat
they should make flags! I would soooo buy one
well maybe the tail was 13 but he only had one feather, jk
This is just getting better and better! In so excited!
I think they should stop showing us pictures, cause then it ruins the surprise, plus it gets kind of annoying… but i am really excited that they are already shooting scenes in the arena! wasnt that kind of fast for the reaping? what about the scenes of her and gale in the woods and all of that?
I don’t think they have really started yet. They are deffinately getting ready, but seriously? They couldn’t have filmed all that so fast. Plus Josh’s hair isn’t completely blonde yet…
You totally just contradicted yourself in your comment. But I know what you mean. I come on this site wanting to know everything, but not at the same time haha.
And yea, the US seal has an eagle holding olive branches and arrows. So this seal is perfect because it only depicts ‘war’.

The Capitol seal is clearly a modified version, which like other people have said signifies only war. However, I’m surprised that they didn’t keep the other symbolic things (mostly the numbers). Like, with the US Seal most symbols come in 13 because of the 13 original colonies. I half expected 12 arrows, etc.
OMG can’t wait
This is perfect! I mean can this movie get any BETTER! EVRYTHING IS PERFECT!!! Except Madge isnt in the movie
I think it’s neat and really creepy that they practically used the U.S symbol, only altered it.
@CC14PEETA They dont film scene’s in order. they start with which ever scene is most convenient and then on and so forth. They’ll probably film Katniss and Gale in the woods when they film the arena.
@CC14PEETA: A couple of sources have said that the reaping, among other D12 scenes, have already been filmed in NC. That prob means Josh has been filmed as Peeta with the current hair color. They could change it in post-production, but we won’t know until they LG release an official Peeta pic.
For some reason having a blonde Peeta is a bfd for me.
nice!!! eek i’m excited!! btw, does anybody know when and if madge will be casted??? if they’ve done the reaping scene, shouldn’t she have been there when she gives katniss the mockingjay pin?? or did they not do that part?? what is going on??!!
I LOVE THE ARROWS!
That is amazing! Perfect! Did anyone look up the forest that they said they were filming? It’s beautiful! With the trees and the streams! Also, completely perfect.
I love how it’s so similar to ours, but my favorite part is that instead of holding arrows and an olive branch they just have the arrows.
It’s intimidating! Just like the capitol.
uh thiswas on hunger-games.net ages ago, this is totally my fav. hungergames site but now im double checking on other sites for more recent news
Madge may still be cast. Those screenplays floating around are not what they are using. They are using one written by SuCo and the director (who’s name escapes me atm). I am kind of hoping Madge makes it in, but if not, there are worse parts they could have cut.
I love how there are twelve feathers with the thirteenth removed from the middle. I just love the entire thing actually…
@FLYLEAF from what i have heard of various sources, they edited Madge completely out of the script Prim is said to give the pin to Katniss
Kelsey, if you don’t want to ruin your surprise, then don’t look for news/photos. What you seem to want is for the filmmakers to deny everyone else the opportunity to see stuff because of your personal desires.
The seal looks perfect. Much more realistic than some of the (very good) artwork submitted for the Cinna contest. I can’t wait to see THAT projected accross the sky in the arena!
i love it. that is all.
@DownWithTheCapitol…when was it said that Madge wouldn’t be cast? I must have missed it or something. How would Katniss get her pin?
I love the eagle & arrows adopted from the United States. The wings remind me of a phoenix, for some reason (but the symbolism fits). And the wreath around the eagle looks almost exactly like the seal/flag for the United Nations. Maybe a propaganda effort at being noble?
Okay thats cool if you heard that, but where in the world would prim get that? And why wouldn’t the Everdeens have sold the thing!? Please let that be wrong!
Haha, love what you said about it being projected in the arena sky. I don’t think I ever imagined an actual seal in the book and was utterly confused as to why this seal was so important when I first looked at this post. Thanks for reminding me :p
Ha! All arrows and no olive branch? PERFECT!
Well then I don’t like the United States seal.
EPIC! i love how they made it a darker verison of the US seal….makes it seem more like a realistic verison of the future.
it looks like a mix of roman and the nazi seals?!
