The new film in the franchise Hunger Games is a prequel, that is, it takes place decades before the story of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Here, we follow how young Snow falls in love with Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), tribute from District 12 who wins the 10th edition of the games.

In the plot, Snow is appointed as Lucy Gray’s mentor and needs to help her become captivating to the public, to increase the Games’ audience. In the meantime, the two get involved and the protagonist cheats so that the girl doesn’t die and, consequently, wins the dispute.

But the move is discovered, Snow is banished from life in the Capital and must serve as Peacemaker in the districts. Using the last financial resource he had, he manages to be sent to District 12 and starts living next to Lucy Gray, who returns home after the victory. This part of the story is important for building the hatred that Snow harbors for that District, and for Katniss, in the future.

Despite having experienced almost utopian moments there, he ends the film thinking that Lucy Gray betrayed him. In the scene, it is as if the young woman began to distrust the boy and left a snake to bite him. Of course, all of this is shown from Snow’s point of view, who was already paranoid about his own mistakes with his friend Sejanus Plinth (Josh Andres Rivera), killed when his plans for revolution were denounced by the protagonist to the Capital.

In the last scene between Snow and Lucy Gray, the girl “disappears” after apparently being shot by the boy. The scene repeats what was written in the books and maintains the mystery of what really happened to her. After what happened, Coriolanus Snow takes another step towards becoming President Snow. His denunciation is seen as proof of loyalty to the Capital and he returns to continue his studies.

More sure of yourself after putting in mind that “It’s the things we love most that destroy us”he causes the death of Dean Casca Highbottom (Peter Dinklage), his rival, by leaving a poison nearby, knowing that the character would take it. The last scene focuses on the protagonist’s face and the film ends that way, without a post-credits scene.

Connection between A Song of Birds and Snakes and The Hunger Games

This entire ending shows how Coriolanus Snow has, over the years, harbored a particular hatred for District 12. Even though the character is repulsed by all Districts, the films Hunger Games show that there is something almost personal about the place – and now we know that it is exactly that.

There is also his own relationship with Lucy Gray. As much as the young woman is very different from Katniss Everdeen, there are some clear parallels between their courage in facing the Games head on and this clearly bothers the president, years in the future, when the character played by Jennifer Lawrence volunteers for the Games in place of her younger sister.

Ultimately, Snow’s greatest fear comes true decades later: a young woman from District 12 becomes a symbol of freedom so powerful that not even he can stop it.

The Song of Birds and Serpents is showing in Brazilian cinemas. The films of Hunger Games are available on streaming platforms such as Netflix, HBO Max (only the first one) and Amazon Prime Video.
