The Hunger Games Prequel: First Teaser For The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes

If you’re a Hunger Games fan, chances are you’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the first teaser to the prequel movie, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, to reach on line, specially in case you found out a teaser were launched a month in the past at CinemaCon. That trailer has now been launched for the bigger world to revel in, and at the same time as it fails to include any footage of the occasions main up to Katniss’ overthrow of Panem, it also fails to reply a totally vital question: Do we need a Hunger Games prequel?

If you’ve study original creator Suzanne Collins’ The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which changed into posted in 2020, you can solution that question higher than I can. All I recognize is the synopsis (via Deadline), which doesn’t sound specifically…. necessary:

“Collins’ Songbirds and Snakes, the prequel to the Hunger Games trilogy published in 2020, unearths 18-yr-vintage Coriolanus Snow because the closing desire for his fading lineage, a as soon as-proud circle of relatives that has fallen from grace in a put up-war Capitol. With the tenth annual Hunger Games rapid coming near, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird, the lady tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray instructions all of Panem’s attention by using defiantly making a song all through the reaping rite, Snow thinks he might be capable to show the odds in their want. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy’s race towards time to live on will in the long run display who’s a songbird, and who’s a snake.”

This should appear to be a pretty smooth name: Which is which, the person who would come to be the president of the dystopian global that forces kids to combat to the loss of life on stay TV, or a woman who become involuntarily decided on for that identical combat? But one of the excellent matters approximately The Hunger Games is Collins’ unwillingness to make matters black or white, so I could presume there’s greater going on here. However, even if there may be, is President Snow a compelling sufficient villain to warrant his own prequel? The fact that this primary teaser determined to go along with bizarre, golden, CG snake and hen imagery from the novel’s unique cover artwork versus photos of Tom Blyth as the young Coriolanus Snow or Rachel Zegler as Lucy Gray Baird or something more thrilling implies the solution is no…

Either manner, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is because of arrive November 17, 2023. That should give absolutely everyone lots of time to find out how to inform the 2 aside.
