Citizens of Panem and the rest of the world, the Hunger Games prequel movie is currently in the works. This movie will be based on the book “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” by Suzanne Collins.
Suzanne Collins is well known for writing the Hunger Games trilogy. Those books were not only best sellers, but they were also made into major motion pictures and the success continued from there.
The trilogy films centered around Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence. She started out as an ordinary citizen in District 12 and later she volunteered as tribute in the Hunger Games and started her journey to survive and protect her loved ones.

This new adaption of the prequel will be focused on Coriolanus Snow at age 18 before he becomes the imperious President of Panem, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The young Snow goes through difficult times in his family, but he has a chance to change all that when he chose to be a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games.
All of the details for the movie have yet to be revealed. There’s no cast at the moment, however Francis Lawrence will return to direct the film. Francis Lawrence was the director for all four movies in the Hunger Games franchise and the streak will continue with this new project.
“The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” will be released on May 19. Although the Hunger Games prequel is just getting started, it will give the fans something to look forward to when the COVID-19 pandemic is over. May the odds be ever in your favor.
