A prequel for Hunger Games is set 64 years before the events of The Hunger Games in a period known as “Dark Days” that eventually resulted in a failed rebellion in Panem.
The prequel called The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes tells the story of a young Snow, the antagonist of the first three parts and how he evolved from poverty and adversity to become the President of Panem, inventing The Hunger Games. His character set the stage for everything that happened in The Hunger Games.
Fans’ reaction wasn’t mellow. The decision received a backlash from most people for a variety of reasons
- There are tonnes of other characters that could have been the main character as President Snow didn’t receive much screentime; therefore, he’s not even top-five character in most people’s eyes. Although he had a significant role in the books, the movie could not capture the true essence of his character
- Second, he’s old and going to replace a much loved Katniss Everdeen, which is not a good bargain.
From Books to Cinema
Every true fan of The Hunger Games knows that merely only 50 percent of the book even made it to cinemas owing to the violent nature of the books, Beastiality whatnot. Thus a true fan should have no problem with President Snow getting chosen as the protagonist for the prequel.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes could be a well-received book, even though it is currently getting Game Of Thrones’ D&D treatment online. The author Collins is an exceptional writer. She took things to the next level, graphically being so descript and violent, the book had to be banned in a couple of countries and was censored to the point it became pg-13. She captured an audience as large as the author of Harry Potter, so we best not underestimate what could be in ‘stores.’
It’s been nearly ten years since The Hunger Games ended, and fans could wait for a ten more with the current decision of the author. But hey we are going to give her credit.
Lives of the people associated with The Hunger Games
Its been nearly six years since the last movie of the franchise. Jennifer Lawrence has done several films since then and continues to be a top trending actress from her success in the film. Life for Lawrence is good she’s getting married and well did something in a bucket while wilding out with Adele. Search that story to find out.
Panem finally knows peace, but time is going to be turned around. Suzanne Collins, the author, has a current net worth of $80 million. Collins has published well many books since The Hunger Games and now has collaborated with J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer as a writer of children’s books that adults are eager to read. So there is a good chance these authors may have something to do Collins’ new book. Though, it’s unfair and unwise to assume anything because The Hunger Games has been her own personal project till now. Yes hers, and not the fans, so let her chill and peace out and let her live okay?
