The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes' Title Is A Hidden Katniss Reference – Hunger Games Theory Explained



katniss lucy gray and young coriolanus snow

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes' title is assumed to reference Coriolanus Snow and Lucy Gray Baird, but it could instead be a callback to The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen. The prequel movie, based on the book of the same name, is set decades before the Girl on Fire is born, but it provides the foundation for what would become her rivalry with President Snow. The story offers an explanation for why the dictator took such issue with Katniss in particular, and this all comes back to the film's somewhat cryptic title.
