The popular movie franchise “The Hunger Games” has recently gained popularity again since it has been put on streaming services. The series follows the main character as she and 23 other players are randomly chosen to play in the hunger games. The hunger games are a fight to the death and are televised for entertainment and tradition. The citizens of the 12 districts must watch the games. The movies are set in a future North America known as “Panem” and it is separated into 12 districts. Each year the capitol has 1 female and 1 male from each district to compete against each other until there is 1 person standing. The main character “Katniss Everdeen” was not the one chosen, she volunteered for her 12-year-old sister, who was the actual chosen one. Katniss is then rushed into the capitol life and goes through immense training before being thrown into the arena, starting the fight to death and the 74th hunger games.
