What Will the Upcoming ‘Hunger Games’ Book, ‘Sunrise On The Reaping’ And Movie Be About

After the incredible success of the first four ‘Hunger Games’ books, Collins announced that it was “time to move on to other lands,” signalling that 2010’s ‘Mockingjay’ is meant to be the last book set in Panem.

However, in 2019, she surprised fans by revealing that she has started work on another book focusing on Panem’s Hunger Games.

In 2020, she released ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes,’ which opens 64 years before the first book.

According to Suzanne Collins, she was inspired to pen ‘Sunrise on the Reaping’ by an 18th century Scottish philosopher and the modern uprise of misinformation.

“With ‘Sunrise on the Reaping,’ I was inspired by David Hume’s idea of implicit submission and, in his words, ‘the easiness with which the many are governed by the few,’” Collins said in a statement. “The story also lent itself to a deeper dive into the use of propaganda and the power of those who control the narrative. The question ‘Real or not real?’ seems more pressing to me every day.”

Praising Collins’ capability as a storyteller, Lionsgate chair Adam Fogelson said in a statement: “Suzanne Collins is a master storyteller and our creative north star. We couldn’t be more fortunate than to be guided and trusted by a collaborator whose talent and imagination are so consistently brilliant.”
