If you’ve read the books you may be overcome with the simultaneous thought of how adorable it is that Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) is just going to make the drab grey clothes WORK with whatever accessories she can scramble, and why is she even present in the first place. Vulture has your answer from director Francis Lawrence.
How can anybody replace Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket in these movies? When Suzanne Collins saw Catching Fire, she called and one of the first things she said was, ‘There’s no way Effie Trinket cannot be in the Mockingjay films.’ Effie brings such warmth and fun and levity to these dark stories. She’s the fish out of water in this one and fans will love how she has adapted to the world of District 13.
