In ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds,’ the prequel to The Hunger Games (2012) and the fifth installment in the series, Hunter Schafer takes on the role of Tigris Snow. Tigris is Coriolanus’s older cousin and confidante, offering advice on various matters. Later, she becomes a stylist in the Games and an ally to Katniss Everdeen in the resistance against Panem.
In an interview with E! News, Schafer says she would like to meet the original stars of the Hunger Games movie franchise. “I haven’t met anybody from the previous films, but I feel like me and Jennifer Lawrence would hit it off.” Schafer added, “I’m trying to have a drink with her.”
According to the film’s plot, Young Coriolanus (Tom Blyth), who is the last hope for his failing lineage, the once-proud Snow family, has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With his livelihood threatened, Snow is reluctantly assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), a tribute from the impoverished District 12. But after Lucy Gray’s charm captivates the audience of Panem, Snow sees an opportunity to shift their fates. With everything he has worked for hanging in the balance, Snow unites with Lucy Gray to turn the odds in their favor. Battling his instincts for both good and evil, Snow sets out on a race against time to survive and reveal if he will ultimately become a songbird or a snake.
Francis Lawrence directs from a screenplay by Michael Arndt and Michael Lesslie based on Suzanne Collins’ 2020 novel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. The film also stars Peter Dinklage as Casca Highbottom, Hunter Schafer as Tigris Snow, Jason Schwartzman as Lucretius “Lucky” Flickerman, Viola Davis as Dr. Volumnia Gaul, Burn Gorman as Commander Hoff, Fionnula Flanagan as Grandma’am, Ashley Liao as Clemensia Dovecote, Max Raphael as Festus Creed, Zoe Renée as Lysistrata Vickers, Nick Benson as Jessup, Isobel Jesper Jones as Mayfair Lipp, Dakota Shapiro as Billy Taupe, Vaughan Reilly as Maude Ivory, and Honor Gillies as Barb Azure.
