Sam Claflin Thinks There Can Absolutely Be Hunger Game Prequels

Finnick Mockingjay

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 ended the trilogy from the original novels, but there are plenty of fans who would like to see the world continue in some way, shape, or form.

Among those who would love to see more from the franchise is Hunger Games actor Sam Claflin. Claflin played Finnick Odair in the series, and he is making it clear he would be game for some prequels as he told Entertainment Online at a recent press event for his new film Me Before You.

"The great thing about what Suzanne Collins did was to create a world where people want to learn more about it and I think they absolutely have the platform to do [prequels]."

For Claflin, the idea of seeing how the other Hunger Games winners claimed victory, as well as seeing how the original incident with District 13 happened, would prove fertile ground for new films. He mentions specifically Woody Harelson's Haymitch Abernathy as a nominee for such a film. He threw out a small pitch it as well.

"I think there's so many juicy elements to this story, elements that people want to know more about, I think telling the story of how the Hunger Games first started that to me is interesting. To see Woody Harrelson's character do his Hunger Games? I think it really really is something that could be done."


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 ended the franchise on a high note, bringing in $281,723,902 million dollars domestically, with a total worldwide total of $653,428,261 million.
