Lionsgate has announced that the final film in The Hunger Games series will be split in two with release dates virtually a year apart from each other.

Part 1 of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay will hit theaters on November 21, 2014 while Part 2 is slated for a November 20, 2015 release date.

The move is similar to what the Twilight franchise did where they split Breaking Dawn into two parts.

The Hunger Games became one of the year's biggest blockbusters, grossing $404.4 million domestically and $678.2 million worldwide.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, opens on Nov. 22, 2013.
