The Hunger Games had a pretty massive cast to start with, but since the first film ended with (um, spoiler alert) a whole bunch of characters dead, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is reloading with tons of other new characters.
Though we’ve already seen most of them thanks to the posters, trailers, and stills, a new batch of images offers an even closer look at the fresh faces we’ll get to know this fall — as well as another peek at our favorite returning stars. Hit the jump to take it all in.

In The Hunger Games, Katniss did everything in her power to get out of that arena alive. But having survived that harrowing ordeal, she learns in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire that her real troubles are only beginning. Francis Lawrence directs the film, which opens November 22. The following installments, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 & 2, open November 21, 2014 and November 20, 2015, respectively.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
