BUTTERFLY: THE HUNGER GAMES Prequel Goes Into Production With New Working Title

The Hunger Games prequel moves forward in butterfly

A highly anticipated prequel to The hunger Games the films will go into production with the working title, Butterfly.

Fairly recent literary work by Suzanne Collins in 2020, The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpentsis in production as a film and the title currently used for the image is Butterfly. Late last summer, it was revealed that Collins’ hugely popular book (which is a prequel to his hugely successful The hunger Games series) would be adapted to the cinema by the studio Lionsgate. The premise of the story revolves around the early life of the possibly evil character Coriolanus Snow who was played by Donald Sutherland in earlier footage.


Call Butterfly an origin story would be fairly accurate as it explores the early stages of Coriolanus Snow’s life from when the character was just 18 years old. Snow becomes a mentor in the 10th Hunger Games of storytelling and the plot development gets really interesting from there. It is not yet known who will play the young Snow in the next production.

Kirkus Reviews praised Collins’ 2020 book that the new film will be based on with Kirkus saying, “The twists and heartbreaks captivate despite the tragic fatalities.” This book focused on how Snow needed to earn money to attend college, which led him to become a mentor. Another character featured in the story was Lucy Gray Baird, a singer who becomes an integral part of the story.

While there’s plenty to be excited about the new image, the bar is set pretty high because The hunger Games The series (which debuted in 2012) starred the highly acclaimed and talented (not to mention eventual Oscar winner) Jennifer Lawrence as the terrific role of Katniss Everdeen. Previous films starring Lawrence have earned high ratings with CinemaScore and made fortunes at the box office. The highest-grossing series still earned $281 domestically (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2) while the highest (Hunger Games – Catching Fire) earned $424 million.

All eyes will be on Butterfly to see if the filmmakers can pull together a phenomenal cast of actors to tell a story that many fans have found extraordinarily compelling as a book. could Butterfly generate mobs the previous The hunger Games movies did? We won’t know until at least late 2023 or early 2024, sources say. In the meantime, you can read the book The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpents to prepare you for Butterflythe highly publicized film adaptation that is making a buzz in Hollywood.
