Do you remember Hunger Games? This November, the prequel of Hunger Games is coming to theaters this fall: Hunger Games – The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes.
Here’s the official description for the movie:
Return to The Hunger Games, the landmark film franchise that has earned over $3 billion globally, with Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ #1 New York Times Bestseller The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) is the last hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), the girl tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy Gray’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird, and who is a snake.
The original trilogy took place around the 70th Hunger Games, the prequel will be taking us back and seeing what the whole thing was like in the earlier days. This is the opportunity to explore when it comes to the world of The Hunger Games.
It won’t be a surprise if Liongate plan to make a trilogy out of this one. Afterall, it won’t be a complete franchise without the love affair between two people from different social standings.
Watch out for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes when it comes to theaters on Nov. 17.
