The much anticipated minute-long teaser trailer for Hunger Games and Catching Fire sequel Mockingjay - Part 1 is finally here.

For "Hunger Games" fans this teaser featuring the story's protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, has been a long time coming.

The third installment -- based on the first part of the final book in the trilogy, "Mockingjay" -- is coming to theaters this November. After posters featuring representatives from various districts and two teasers starring President Snow, the film's creators finally unveiled this teaser trailer at Comic Con, which gives a look at what happens to Katniss after the conclusion of "Catching Fire." Whether Katniss likes it or not, she has become the "Mockingjay," the face of the rebellion, and she has to decide if she will fight.

The short spot packs in the suspense...and the stars. Joining the cast are Julianne Moore as District 13's president Alma Coin and Natalie Dormer as Cressida. Back for more are Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee. Hoffman died in February, but filming was close enough to completion that the release date was not delayed.

Without further ado, here's your peek at District 13...finally.
