With the release of the final movie in The Hunger Games franchise, author Suzanne Collins is saying goodbye to the series she wrote and turned into a worldwide phenomenon.
The author posted the goodbye letter in a blog post on Scholastic’s website.
“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,” Suzanne wrote. “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.”
“There’s no Hunger Games without Katniss. I hoped for someone good enough, and I got someone who exceeded all my expectations. Jennifer Lawrence, your emotional depth, luminous presence, and sheer power carry this story and I will always be grateful to you for opening the door and allowing it to come into your life,” Suzanne said while thanking the star of the movie.
