The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes takes audiences back to The Hunger Games with the release of its first teaser trailer.

The prequel gives fans a first look at the young Coriolanus Snow, diving deeper into his origin story. The plot follows how Snow eventually becomes the power-hungry president that audiences have seen throughout the franchise. Fans will notice that the film features strikingly similar bird imagery that symbolizes freedom and oppression in the dystopian Hunger Games. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is an adaptation o Suzanne Collins’ prequel novel. The synopsis of the film reads,

“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.”

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes arrives in theaters on November 17, 2023. Take a look at the first teaser trailer above.
