Fans will be able to relive the thrilling movie once again but this time with a variety of cool supplements to back it up. Both the DVD and the Blu-ray will contain three hours of bonus material which includes the eight-part documentary called "The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games."

There will be several other extra behind-the-scenes features in the DVD, but the Blu-ray will contain an extra video. It's called "Preparing for the Games: A Director's Process" in which it follows around Gary Ross through the duration of shooting 'The Hunger Games' and some of the struggles and triumphs that come with making such a major motion picture.
