Fans of The Hunger Games have waited a long time and now it’s finally here: The new novel The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes tells the history of the hunger games. As the author Suzanne Collins has already revealed, a film version will also appear. Two star actors from Mockingjay are even there.
There are already three books and four films about the Hunger Games universe. Now fans are finally getting supplies with the new novel The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes. However, the new story is not only offered as a book. Because a filming is also planned so that fans can also follow the prehistory on the cinema screen. Two stars have already been brought on board for the adaptation, who have already been seen in Mockingjay.
As we now know, Coriolanus Snow is the main character of the new story. In The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes, he’s only 18 years old and still far from the bad guy we’ve met in previous films. Instead, Snow becomes a hero and is supported by another well-known character. These are Tigris, which we meet for the first time in Mockingjay. In it she is a shopkeeper who helps the main heroes camouflage themselves and get into the Capitol in hiding. It has now become known that Tigris is actually Coriolanus Snow’s cousin. In The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes, the relationship between the two is to be examined more closely.
As reported by Cinema Blend, among others, the new novel takes place 64 years before The Hunger Games. That is also ten years before the so-called Dark Days, in which the Districts of Panem fought violently against the Capitol. After the government put down the rebellion, the infamous hunger games were introduced. The Capitol wanted to entertain the population and put any form of resistance in its place. It remains to be seen how the whole thing looks on the cinema screen. The film adaptation of The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes has not yet been given a specific launch date.
