Hunger Games Prequel Film J-Law Gives Advice
“Oh, and the prequel? You guys are going to have the best time. Just have fun — don’t worry about anything.”
It’s nice to see that Lawrence is so positive about the series and that she has some good advice for the stars. In another interview, she spoke about how making The Hunger Games was the most fun she’s ever had on a film. In particular, she said her co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth made the experience a lot of fun. The film series helped propel Lawrence to an international level of fame. The series is easily her most recognisable role.
Don’t expect to see her appear in the Hunger Games prequel film, though! The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes takes place long before the events of the first Hunger Games novel. Katniss hasn’t even been born yet! There’s a possibility we could see some “flash-forward” sequence at the start or end of the film to help put it into context for viewers. However, even the chances of this happening are minimal at best. After all, it’s been over seven years since Lawrence was in the most recent Hunger Games film, and there’s no reason for her to return to the role again.
Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes Film
Originally, The Hunger Games and its sequel film, Catching Fire, were both a hit with critics and the box office. Unfortunately, Mockingjay Part 1 and Mockingjay Part 2 didn’t receive the same success as these two films. We hope that the Hunger Games prequel film captures the audience’s love for the first two films. If so, it’s possible that the film executives could expand the series even further, perhaps with a spin-off film or two.
After all, there’s a lot of material they could work with. We could see how the government of Panem is revolutionised after the events of Mockingjay Part 2 and how they try to establish a new, fairer system. Or perhaps they’ll take things right back and show us the first Hunger Games competition. Either way, if the Hunger Games prequel film is a success, we could see plenty more forays into the world of this beloved franchise.
However, you’ve got a while left before Lionsgate released Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. The film comes out on November 17th, 2023.
