Cast and crew of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

The cast for The Hunger Games prequel includes some popular names from Hollywood. Tom Blyth will play the role of a young Coriolanus Snow, while Rachel Zegler will star alongside him as Lucy Gray Baird. The two characters have very distinct features from each other. Coriolanus has silver-grey hair with radiant blue eyes. Meanwhile, Lucy has a charming but ordinary look with a soft face and wavy brown hair.

Euhoria’s Hunter Schafer will play the role of Coriolanus’s cousin, Tigris Snow. Tigris looks like a regal lady with a soft personality. The character wore light rosy colors both times she was shown in the trailer. Another character, Lucretius “Lucky” Flickerman is being played by Jason Schwartzman. Lucretius is the host of Hunger Games and an ancestor of Ceasar Flickerman, the host from previous books. His character looks as eccentric as Ceasar in a red velvet Tux.

Game of Thrones alum, Peter Dinklage plays the role of Casca Highbottom, one of the co-creators of The Hunger Games. Peter’s character looks worried in all of the scenes shown in the trailer. While DC’s Viola Davis plays the head game maker and main antagonist, Dr. Volumnia Gau. Viola looks as menacing in the trailer as she looks as Amanda Weller in Suicide Squad.

The cast of ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ includes Fionnula Flanagan as Snow’s grandmother and Flora Li Thiemenn as a mentor. Additional faces like Isobel Jesper Jones, Dakota Shapiro, Vaughan Reilly, Laurel Marsden, and George Somner are cast in other minor roles.


The movie will focus on the creation of the tournament

The upcoming movie, “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes”, takes place 64 years prior to the events of The Hunger Games trilogy. Young Coriolanus Snow, appointed as the mentor to Lucy Gray Baird, a tribute from District 12, leads the story in ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. The movie’s poster symbolizes the two characters with Lucy represented by the Mockingjay and Coriolanus by the snake.

Unlike Katniss, Lucy is a charismatic singer who exudes a delicate charm. The trailer hints at a possible romantic relationship between the two characters, which could have significant implications on their perception of The Hunger Games tournament.

The movie promises to showcase a more in-depth look at the society of Panem and the Capitol, revealing what led to the creation of The Hunger Games. With a release date during the holiday season, it has the potential to become the biggest hit of the year.
