Suzanne Collins Writes Thank You Letter to Entire Hunger Games Team
Hunger Games trilogy author Suzanne Collins, in the Thanksgiving season, wrote a letter to thank everyone who worked on the films as the series comes to a close.
Having spent the last decade in Panem, it’s time to move on to other lands. But before I do, I’d like to say a tremendous thank you to everyone associated with the film franchise. I’m thrilled with how this quartet of films, which I find both faithful to the books and innovative in its own right, has been brought to life on the screen.
Collins thanks director Gary Ross, the cast (with some special words for Jennifer Lawrence), writers, production designers, producers, and you, the fan for all the effort put into the franchise.
Thousands of people have worked on these films in a myriad of ways, prepping, shooting, in post production, and promotion. Please, anybody seeing them, take a few moments to watch the credits and acknowledge the enormous collaborative effort that goes into making a franchise.
For me, The Hunger Games Trilogy is part of a larger goal to introduce the ideas of just war theory to young audiences, but how much wider and more varied an audience came with the films, and the credit for that goes to all of you who contributed so much to this project.
Finally, to all the readers and viewers who have accompanied Katniss on her journey, thank you for playing a role in The Hunger Games, you are truly a vital part of the experience.
May the odds be ever in your favor!
While we can’t wait to see the other lands Collins will go to, it’s always sad to see things end. You can read Collins’ full letter at Scholastic.
