The Hunger Game saga is back. In this prequel, we will not follow the adventures of Katniss, but those of President Snow.
Notice to Hunger Games fans : 8 years after the release of the first film, a prequel is in preparation . Spoiler alert: the character of President Snow will be the central character of this new spin-off.
Hunger Games will make its return to the big screen … The prequel to the saga would even be in the pipes. However, he will not focus on Katniss but on President Snow. Unfortunately, this news is not unanimous.
The story will therefore take place a few years before the Hunger Games . It will resume, in broad outline, the plot of the next novel by the successful author . As much to tell you right away: there is little chance that Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, will play a role.
