Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes Trailer Drops – Deadline

Lionsgate released the trailer for its prequel film The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes at CinemaCon today. It’s a first look at the tribute to Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler) and Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth), with Peter Dinklage as the vengeful Casca Highbottom, Dean of the Academy, creator of The Hunger Games. Viola Davis is Head Gamemaker Volumnia Gaul. Watch the trailer above.

It’s the 10th Annual Harvest Festival, set 64 years before the first film. Lucy represents impoverished District 12, and 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is her unwilling mentor—at first. He is much more conflicted in his views in this film, decades before he becomes the tyrannical president of Panem. “There have been some changes this year,” he is told. “Your role is to turn these kids into spectacles, not survivors.”

But after Lucy gives Panem all the attention by singing defiantly during the harvest ceremony, Snow thinks she might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Combining their instincts for showmanship and new political insights, Snow and Lucy’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird and who is a snake.

Like the previous films, the themes here are freedom and tyranny, good and evil, how the two can co-exist and why people chose one over the other. “There is a natural goodness built into all of us. We can cross that line into evil – or not,” says Lucy. Panem is full of cranes and construction – rebuilding a decade after a brutal civil war.

The prequel to the $3 billion global franchise hits theaters worldwide on November 17. The Hunger Games Franchise sequel producer Francis Lawrence directed and will also produce with series producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins, Tim Palen and Jim Miller are EPs.
