Hunger Games fans can rejoice some great scoops spilled by none other than the movie director on Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss and her love triangle.

According to director Francis Lawrence, Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1, the third instalment in the science fiction movie series will surprise fans with some great war scenes that are not mentioned in the novel.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence teased fans about two different Mockingjay films of the super hit sci-fi movie franchise.

Based on the novels written by American author Suzanne Collins, the Hunger Games is the story of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (John Hutcherson) and their adventure to survive the hunger game organised by the dystopian nation of Panem.

In the last movie, Katniss is in severe mental stress after losing Peeta at the hands of the Capitol.

In the upcoming movie, the teen heroine arrives in the District 13 only to realise that she is their only ray of hope as the rebel leader. The movie will explore her emotional sides as she begins another adventurous journey to reclaim victory.

"It's a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss. Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she's even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She's distraught, confused, angry," director Lawrence told EW.

Lawrence also spilled the beans about Katniss' emotional attachment and a love triangle between her, Peeta and Gale (Liam Hemsworth).

"With Mockingjay – Part I it's tricky because Peeta is out of reach for her. Obviously he becomes an objective for her, but Gale is right there, so that's always a tricky situation," he said.

He also told that the original plot of the novel will reflect on the movie, however, there will be added scenes that will "surprise even fans of the book."

"Instead of changing the plot and changing characters what we did was have the opportunity to show scenes that could have been happening at different times in the book," Lawrence told the website.

"For us it's world expansion instead of changing things. I think it's exciting for the fan to see certain things. So we've been able to open the world up in this and see some new places. We get to see some new districts this time and the scope gets quite large," he added.

According to him, the third movie in the series will also feature some 'real war' and some very emotional scenes.

"There's definitely some battles. There's some of the first glimpses of real war in this movie. And the scale gets quite big.

"There's an atonal shift from some of the last movies, but they're still very emotional, very sweeping, [on a] grand scale with some levity and humour," he added.

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will premiere in theatres on 21 November.
