Friday, 16 October 2020
As Suzanne Collins' previous novel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, was announced earlier this year, fans feared that changing the view to President Snow would not measure up to The Girl on Fire and Mockingjay, Katniss Everdeen. Despite being a secret weapon in the new Hunger gamebook. It focuses on a young Snow while guiding Lucy Gray Baird to pay tribute to female District 12 of the 10th Hunger Games.
During a recent New York Comic Con group, Hungry Gamemaker Nina Jacobson, dedicated to the YA owner, showed particular enthusiasm for adapting the new character to the Francis Lawrence-led film adaptation.
In her words:
“I’m very excited about introducing Lucy… Lucy is a character who is much more aware of the power of her femininity. Katniss is much more quiet, a woman of few words. Lucy as a performer is a very different kind of character... Lucy is more mysterious because she is an entertainer. She is playing, in her own way, to the crowd.”
