Primarily about the relationship between the young Coriolanus Snow and Lucy Grey Baird, and The Tenth Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is intended to tell a decidedly different story than The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games sequel.

About the Movie Series

The stories in The Hunger Games film series would have essentially explored the history and background of Panem and The Hunger Games, and as such, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes would no doubt outdo its predecessors when it comes to world building.

This prequel Hunger Games movie has already revealed that two of its stars will be actors Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler.

The director of the past three Hunger Games films, Francis Lawrence, will be returning to direct this new movie, while the films series writer, Suzanne Collins, will be serving as an executive producer. After American writer Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games novel was published, Hollywood movie studios began looking to adapt the book to the screen.
