Ready to step back into her career-changing role, Jennifer Lawrence was spotted for the first time on the set of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday (September 13).

The 22-year-old actress did her best to hide as she walked around the filming grounds, having assistants cover her with an umbrella while wearing a tightly drawn hoodie.

Lawrence - who helms the lead as Katniss Everdeen - later was spotted toting a large bottle of coconut water as she trekked back and forth between the set and her posh trailer.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, the "Hunger Games" followup follows "the continuing adventures of Katniss Everdeen, which take place in a futuristic dystopian world, as she prepares for the Quarter Quell."

With the cast roster including Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland and Liam Hemsworth, "Catching Fire" is slated to hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
