Peeta is feeling pretty proud right now.

OK, actually make that Josh Hutcherson, who happily dished to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Wednesday about the highly anticipated sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

"On this movie, the story kind of opens up a lot," the 21-year-old actor said. "I think there's a lot more interesting plots that start to develop and everything thickens. We up the overall feel of the movie."

Hutcherson added, "I mean, we kept the same idea of the first, with the whole world, but we bumped it up a bit and made it more immersive, but it's really great. We stay true to the book as always."

He also expressed his excitement about working with several new additions to the cast.

"We got some amazing actors to come in like Philip Seymour Hoffman," Hutcherson noted. "It was pretty incredible to work with all these guys."

And while Hutcherson couldn't give too much away—"I can't divulge any kind of plot details"—he said audiences will "be very satisfied with the relationship" between Peeta and Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence).

We'll know soon enough when The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters on Nov. 22.
