The most recent Hunger Games game tells the tale of a strong, powerful brunette who captures Panem’s attention with her stunning singing voice. Do you sound familiar?
Before Katniss Everdeen takes on the role of our mockingjay in Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Lucy Gray is remembered as a Tribute in the 10th annual brutal competition. Many fans have been left wondering if our two favorite Tributes are actually related after watching the new movie, which debuted on theater screens last week.
Let’s examine the supporting data. They are both from Panem’s smallest and poorest coal-mining district, District 12. They are fiery, intelligent women who bring a lot of hope to the Games.

In fact, Peeta tells Katniss in the first film, “You know what my mother said to me when she came to say good-bye, as if to cheer me up, she says maybe District 12 will finally have a winner.” I then understood that she was referring to you and not me.
Years earlier, Lucy Gray quickly recognizes the benefit of her relationship with Coriolanus Snow, her mentor. Naturally, both triumph in their respective arenas, which is extremely uncommon in District 12.
Additionally, they are both gifted singers who appeal to audiences with their voices. The most glaring example of this is Lucy Gray, who surprised everyone in the Capitol by performing during her reaping ceremony. Then, during the “talent” portion of the Games’ build-up, Snow forces her to sing, earning her more than a thousand sponsors.
Even though Katniss isn’t as obvious, the movies still feature some heartfelt moments from her singing. As a member of the Mockingjay rebellion movement, she sings both while competing in the Games and while filming commercials.
Director Francis Lawrence has, however, provided a definitive answer to the question, which is disappointing despite fans’ clever theories.
He addresses claims that the two women are related in an interview with USA Today. I frequently hear that fan theory, he said. However, it is untrue. There is no connection between Katie Gray and Lucy Gray.
