Our weekend hypothesis has been confirmed as true: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire film is indeed underway in Hawaii, and these two photos from the set depict Jennifer Lawrence in action.

The scene appears to depict Lawrence, who plays lead character Katniss, at the very start of the Quarter Quell when she has to swim to shore. A second photo depicts a wide shot of the beach they’re using to film on a mostly cloudy day.

UPDATE: A third photo has surfaced, this time from a different Twitter user. It’s hard to tell which actor/actress is in this scene…

The photos were snapped by this Twitter user who appears to be simply visiting Hawaii and happened to encounter the set.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had been filming in Atlanta, Georgia up until earlier this month. The cast and crew moved to Hawaii to film the Quarter Quell, and production is scheduled to wrap by the end of December.

The highly anticipated Hunger Games sequel opens in theaters November 22, 2013. Francis Lawrence is directing. Last week Lionsgate released the film’s animated logo, which starts as The Hunger Games logo and morphs into Catching Fire‘s as seen on Suzanne Collins’ book.

We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more Catching Fire Hawaii filming photos and pass them along to you if they surface! Given that they’re filming in what appears to be at least one public area, we suspect many more photos will come online in the next few weeks.

    After seeing all these pictures of the different sets, backed by an amazing cast and dedicated director, I have this feeling that Catching Fire will be really awesome.

    There’s talk of Jennifer Lawrence getting an oscar nod for her newest movie, and I was just thinking how lucky it is they cast someone decent as the lead of this franchise. Imagine if Kristen Stewart were Katniss.

      uuggh I shudder at the thought.

      she was nominated already for Winter’s Bone at the 2011 Oscars I believe

      • mb

        and if she didn’t win, she should have!!! That was an AMAZING performance

      If you see Kristen Stewart in something other than twilight, she has proven she is an outstanding actress. Don’t judge her by a terrible franchise like Twilight; she has proven herself over and over.

    whats that thing she’s holding on the podium? also, are they going to use those rock formations in the background? cause i dig it!

    I think these shots are just for when their standing on the pedestals. They filmed the scene where they swim to the beach in Atlanta for safety reasons. I think the unidentified male is either one of the nameless victors ( District 5, 9, 10 etc.) or Alan Ritchson.
