Filming has finished on the final Hunger Games instalment, Mockingjay, ahead of the first part’s release later this year.

Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson were snapped sharing a group hug after the cameras stopped rolling on Friday.

Nina Jacobson, who has produced all four films, shared the picture on Twitter, thanking writer Suzanne Collins, the director and all fans of the blockbuster franchise.

“Other than that, I’m speechless,” she added.

The sequels, based on Collins’ successful young adult fiction series, were filmed in Paris and Berlin.

Actor Sam Claflin, who plays former Hunger Games victor Finnick Odair, tweeted his thanks to the cast and crew and said he was "privileged, honoured and so very lucky" to be part of the films.

The story will continue from the end of Catching Fire, released in November last year, where Lawrence’s heroine Katniss Everdeen was rescued from the Quarter Quell games by rebels.

A series of fictional propaganda posters were released by the film studio, Lionsgate, earlier this month depicting the different districts of post-apocalyptic Panem.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay: Part 1 will be released in November.
