While The Hunger Games was filmed in North Carolina, it’s long been thought that there would be a new location for Catching Fire. The rumors have been that the Hawaiian island of Kauai has been chosen to shot the scenes from the Third Quarter Quell.
Here’s what Kauai.com has to say:
With the recent big screen hits “The Descendents” starring George Clooney and “Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides” with Johnny Depp, today’s announcement doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. Hollywood movie scouts have chosen the Garden Island of Kauai as one of the filming locations for the movie based on the trilogy by Suzanne Collins, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”
Film scouts have been searching out locations within the Hawaiian Islands and have zeroed in on Kauai. With the natural beauty, rugged terrain, isolated valleys, lush green jungles, turquoise waters and wildlife, it is no wonder Hollywood has again made a smart choice in picking Kauai.
