We’re finally getting some real information about the new Hunger Games Movie coming out in 2023. The movie will be based on the last book, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

If you need a recap of the book because it’s been so long since you read it, you can read our previous post on The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (the book).

The movie will be released by Lionsgate, the same as the previous movies. This is a good thing because we should see some continuity in terms of production value. It will star Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler. The U.S. release date is slated for November 17, 2023.

A short synopsis from Lionsgate:

Return to The Hunger Games, the landmark film franchise that has earned over $3 billion globally, with Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ #1 New York Times Bestseller The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) is the last hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that 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 (Rachel Zegler), 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 who is a snake.

Are you excited about a new Hunger Games movie? We definitely are!!

Edited: The book is now on sale!!

Scholastic has just announced a new Hunger Games book entitled “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.” The book is due to be released May 19, 2020. When news was first released about the book, it was being called “Untitled Panem Novel.” What do you think the name indicates?

I can’t believe after all this time that we are finally getting a new book!

The book is actually a prequel to the other Hunger Games books, meaning that it takes place 64 years before the other books. It will feature the 10th Hunger Games, many years before Katniss, Peeta, and Gale. This time period is 10 years after “The Dark Days,” or the war that destroyed Panem and resulted in the country as we know it in the Hunger Games trilogy.

Lionsgate had previously teased us that there might be other movies in the works, but that could have happened even without a new book release. We’re excited that Suzanne Collins will still be behind the series.

Take a look at the cover above. The press release states that the cover captures the “inner and outer” conflict that lies at the heart of the book. “The mockingjay has returned, but at a new angle…which is very much in line with the story that Suzanne Collins is telling.”

More information from Amazon:

Ambition will fuel him.
Competition will drive him.
But power has its price.
It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined — every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute . . . and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.
