Lionsgate has released an official trailer for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, an upcoming prequel film set 64 years before Katniss Everdeen volunteered as tribute. Let’s take a look.
Okay, as a fan of The Hunger Games (both books and films), I’ll admit to being pleasantly surprised by that trailer. I haven’t read Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes yet, but I really wasn’t introduced in a prequel story about a young President Snow.
However, that trailer is compelling and far better than that first-look image. I’m definitely going to watch this now, as well as crack open my copy of Songbirds & Snakes I’ve had on the shelf since it was first released.
Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler lead The Hunger Games prequel film, with Peter Dinklage, Hunter Schafer, Josh Andrés Rivera, Jason Schwartzman, and Viola Davis appearing in supporting roles.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes opens in theaters on November 17, 2023.
