You thought The hunger Games were finished? Idiot. We live in the age of intellectual property, that is, every day brings us another viable property to resurrect, to repack and, if you are JK Rowling, ruin for the generation that he has helped shape. The return of Suzanne Collins to Panem is however not a sequel, but a precedent that takes place 64 years before the events of the original trilogy. As such, do not expect returns from Katniss, Peeta or the one played by other Hemsworths. Do not tell Jennifer Lawrence either.
By the Associated press, the book will be placed in the "Dark Days", the period that followed the failed rebellion of Panem that helped to give birth to the Hunger Games, the annual event where children ages 12 to 18 will all go Royal Battle on one and the other. The bloodshed, do not forget, serves as both reminder and punishment to this rebellion.
"With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are and what we perceive is necessary for our survival," Collins said in a statement. "The period of reconstruction, ten years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days – as Panem's country recovers – allows the characters to face these questions and thus define their vision of humanity."
It also seems that Lionsgate, which published the previous Hunger Games movies, is already down on the new book, with the franchise having raised $ 2.97 billion in the world. "As the proud homeland of Hunger Games we look forward to the release of Suzanne's next book, "said studio vice president Michael Burns. AP. "We have communicated with her during the writing process and we look forward to continuing to work closely with her on the film."
There are still no details of the story, but fans quickly claimed that the new book would probably focus on Mags, the old tribute to Catch fire who has already won the 11th annual hunger games. Deadline adds that the story will unfold "the morning of the harvest of the 10th Games of Hunger", which means we could spend time with Mags as she prepares for the event of the Next year.
In any case, we will not wait long before the new book arrives. Its release is scheduled for May 2020. Lionsgate is probably already working on the soundtrack of the film.
