Madame Tussauds London today revealed its newest figure, Katniss Everdeen, protagonist of the worldwide phenomenon The Hunger Games franchise, in its own immersive backdrop.
Following the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Madame Tussauds has also launched wax likenesses of Katniss, portrayed by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, at its New York and Hollywood attractions. London’s figure portrays Katniss in her hunting outfit, which she wears in the second installment of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Teamed with her iconic brown leather hunting jacket, are dark charcoal trousers, knee-length tie-up leather brown boots, plus brown leather quiver (arrow bag) and trademark bow. Her hair is also styled in her iconic braid. “We are hugely excited to have worked with Lionsgate to launch a Katniss wax figure following The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”, commented Nicole Fenner, PR Manager for Madame Tussauds London. She continued “The figure is in its own film-specific backdrop, allowing our guests to get up close to Katniss and the beloved story of The Hunger Games, which we know they’ll love.”
Paula Kupfer, SVP Worldwide Promotions and Consumer Products from Lionsgate, added “We are delighted to have worked with Madame Tussauds London, New York and Hollywood on these immersive fan experiences. The London figure is featured in the film area of the attraction, alongside other iconic characters like E.T., Shrek and Terminator.
