portraitSuzanne Collins (pictured, via) has composed a letter praising the filmmaking team behind the four Hunger Games movies.

Collins offered several complimentary words in particular for director Francis Lawrence, actress Jennifer Lawrence, and producer Nina Jacobson. She also shared that her personal mission for this young adult trilogy was to tell a story about war for young readers.

Here’s an excerpt from Collins’ letter: “Having spent the last decade in Panem, it’s time to move on to other lands. But before I do, I’d like to say a tremendous thank you to everyone associated with the film franchise. I’m thrilled with how this quartet of films, which I find both faithful to the books and innovative in its own right, has been brought to life on the screen.”
