Some of our favorite books are adapted into movies. Hunger Games is most definitely one of them. Millions of us fell in love with the story, but fans of the book and films have been craving more. Although 2020 has been a pretty poor year so far, it seems some people’s prayers have been answered. The Hunger Games universe is back open and ready to give us more!

Lionsgate is currently working on a new movie adapted from the new book ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’. The upcoming movie will be a prequel to Hunger Games. Written by the amazing author Suzanne Collins, the book follows an 18-year-old way back in the 10th annual Hunger Games. But this is no ordinary teenager – he is, in fact, Coriolanus Snow, better known as the horrible ruler of Panem, played brilliantly by Donald Sutherland.

What can we expect?

We’re very excited to see and read the prequel. Did something terrible happen to President Snow, creating the villain he becomes? Everyone should write down May 19th in their diaries, as that is when the new book is released. There’s no date as of yet when the movie will be released, but the uncertainty of the pandemic will more than likely have pushed it back already before production has even started.

The new movie will bring back the original crew, including screenwriter Michael Arndt and director Francis Lawrence. This should mean what we loved about the original films will be brought back. We wonder what theme the Hunger Games was held? And was it even more savage? We have so many questions and we can’t wait to both read and watch The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Are we going to get a love story triangle this time? It doesn’t feel the same if we don’t see Katniss Everdeen choosing who she loves!

If you haven’t read The Hunger Games, then you should head over to Amazon. An amazing way to pass the time while stuck indoors!
