According to the Filmmaker's Round Table on the #HungerGamesExclusive website, Effie Trinket (played by Elizabeth Banks) will take on the role of Fulvia Cardew—Plutarch's assistant—in the Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2 movies.
Fulvia is a character much like Effie: she's from the Capitol, she's a little bossy, and she can have that same Capitol insensitivity toward District citizens. Her character filled that void of not having Effie in the first two parts of the novel, so it makes sense to change make that adjustment.
Fulvia is also the character who comes up with the "We Remember" propos. It makes me wonder if Effie will now have that idea or if another character will? Or perhaps they won't even include those propos? (I hope they do, though.)
If you haven't checked out the #HungerGamesExclusive website, you need to. I especially enjoyed the Filmmaker's Round Table article and the sneak peek of the script. I'm sure Lionsgate® will be adding more content soon, as well.
