In 2023 fans will return to The Hunger Games. The upcoming prequel is titled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. It is from director Francis Lawrence who previously directed the franchise’s Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part One, and Mockingjay Part Two. Rachel Zegler plays Lucy Gray Baird, and Tom Blyth plays Coriolanus Snow. The cast also features Viola Davis and Jason Schwartzman. It will debut in theaters worldwide on November 17, 2023. 


Years before becoming the authoritarian President of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is the last hope for his fading lineage. This once-proud family has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird. She is the girl tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy Gray’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird and a snake.
