The New Hunger Games Prequel Can Finally Explain What Happened To Tigris Snow The Global Tofay Global Today


  • Tigris’ transformation and rebel status may be linked, and Sunrise on the Reaping could unveil some answers.
  • There are still plenty of questions regarding Tigris’ physical changes and rebel actions that need clarification.
  • The upcoming novel and film have the potential to shed light on Tigris’ backstory and the reasons behind her transformation.

There are still a lot of questions surrounding Tigris Snow’s character, but the upcoming The Hunger Games: Sunrise on the Reaping is the perfect chance to get some answers. The original Hunger Games books revealed that Tigris was a Capitol stylist turned rebel, but the prequel The Ballad of Sogbirds and Snakes surprised everyone with the information that she was actually Coriolanus Snow’s cousin. However, there are still massive gaps left in Tigris’ story, and given her role in the 50th Hunger Games, these may soon be filled in.

In The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Tigris is a sweet young woman who cares deeply for her cousin Coryo. In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, she was a rebel distorted by cosmetic surgeries to look like a tiger, who wanted nothing more than to see President Coriolanus Snow dead. Given Snow’s own changes between the prequel and the central Hunger Games story, it can be assumed that the dictator’s cruelty and distrust for love is what turned Tigris away from him. However, the nuanced details have yet to be explored, and Sunrise on the Reaping has the opportunity to change this.

Suzanne Collins has announced details about the upcoming novel in the Hunger Games series, which will be titled Sunrise on the Reaping.

Tigris Snow Should Be A Stylist In The 50th Hunger Games

Sunrise On The Reaping Will Be Set 40 Years After Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes

Katniss recognized Tigris when she met her in Mockingjay, remembering her as a famed Hunger Games stylist frequently celebrated on television when she was a child. She realized that the tiger-like woman had simply disappeared from the annual event and assumed that she had fallen from grace due to the grotesque nature of her surgeries. What Katniss didn’t know was that Tigris had grown up side by side with Snow and had once loved him. Instead, the Mockingjay just assumed that Tigris hated Snow for kicking her out of the games, and this was where the woman’s story was left.

The fact that Tigris was working as a Hunger Games stylist when Katniss was younger indicates that she would have been part of a District prep team during the 50th Hunger Games, which will be the focus of Sunrise on the Reaping. This means we should get another look at Snow’s cousin and, perhaps, some answers regarding how she went from a sweet girl who hated the Hunger Games to one of the event’s most famous stylists. Then, of course, it would be interesting to see where Tigris is in her transformation process in Sunrise on the Reaping, with, hopefully, some answer regarding why this happened.

The Sunrise on the Reaping book will be released on March 18, 2024, and the film has a scheduled theatrical release for November 20, 2026.

Tigris’ Physical Transformation Is Still A Hunger Games Mystery

It’s Unclear Why Tigris Went Through Such Extensive Surguries

Aside from her name and a love for raw meat, there was no indication in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes that Tigris desired to morph her body into that of a Tiger. Strange cosmetic surgeries became the norm in the Capitol, but Katniss found that Tigris’ transformation was far more extreme, which is why she assumed that it was the reason she had been fired from the Hunger Games. Katniss concluded that Tigristransformation resulted from Capitol greed and excess, but this doesn’t align with who the character was in the Hunger Games prequel. Still, there are currently no other answers.

There are numerous theories regarding Tigris’ physical transformation. Since Snow mentions in Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes that he despised the idea of anyone being physical with his cousin (his property), it’s possible he forced the surgeries on Tigris to make her undesirable. Or, since Snow had a reputation for selling people’s bodies for his own political gain, Tigris might have undergone the transformation by choice to ensure he couldn’t make use of her in this way. Or, the woman may have purposely taken her surgeries so far so that she would no longer have to participate as a stylist in the annual tournament.

There are still countless possibilities about what happened to Tigris between Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes and The Hunger Games, and there are just as many ways that Sunrise on the Reaping could provide some answers. Catching Fire already revealed that there was a rebel movement sewn within the mentors, stylists, and even Gamemakers of the Hunger Games by the third Quarter Quell. Perhaps Haymitch will learn some of this during the 50th Hunger Games, just as Katniss did.

Sunrise On The Reaping Could Explain When & How Tigris Became A Rebel

Tigris May Have Become A Rebel Long Before She Left The Hunger Games

Tigris’ transformation and her status as a rebel are likely connected in one way or another. So, if Sunrise on the Reaping were to actively or passively explain how and why Snow’s cousin underwent such a drastic change, it would also drop some hints regarding her rebel involvement. Something happened between Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes and The Hunger Games to make Tigris not only lose all hope that there was any goodness left in Coryo but become desperate to see her little cousin dead. Perhaps this event will even play out during Sunrise on the Reaping‘s 50th Hunger Games—only time will tell.
