Watch the Mockingjay celebrate the power of family in new trailer

The new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 focuses on what's most important in life: family.

We're all holding our collective breath as we wait for the final installment in the Hunger Games films, and this little taste of what's to come is delicious while also pulling on our heartstrings.

If there's one thing we know about Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), it's that she'll do anything for the ones she loves.

We just don't want this crazy, romantic, nostalgic, violent, inspiring story to come to an end.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 opens in theaters Nov. 20.
