If anyone but Jennifer Lawrence was going to play Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games,” Cookie Monster is the most logical choice. “Sesame Street” has released their take on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” and it’s pretty great.
“The Hungry Games: Catching Fur,” finds Cookieness Evereat, Finnicky, Pita and Tick Tock Lady in the arena as they figure out what to eat. Choose the wrong thing you you have to deal with the monkey mutts, the poisonous fog and other arena dangers. They’re way less scary than the ones in the actual movie, though.
Perhaps the best line comes when Cookieness asks Pita which food she should eat. “How should I know? I’m just a piece of bread,” he answers.
“Catching Fire” is in theaters November 22.
