The Katniss Chronicles Nears the Finish Line! Friday 16 March, 2012
After launching in November 2011, The Katniss Chronicles will release the final episode of their BRILLIANT unauthorized and unofficial audio drama adaptation of The Hunger Games on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 — a mere three days before the movie opens in theatres worldwide! One might think they actually PLANNED it this way…
Based on the first book of author Suzanne Collins’ best-selling Hunger Games trilogy, The Katniss Chronicles tells the story of KatnissEverdeen, a 16-year-old girl living in a post-war America where children are chosen to fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses in a nationally-televised annual event called the Hunger Games.
Created by fans for fans, and released for free through its website (www.thekatnisschronicles.com) and iTunes, The Katniss Chronicles has been received with great acclaim throughout Hunger Games fandom. All episodes will be available for those who wish to hear the entire story in total, as well as for those who want to relive their favorite moments of the 17-episode adventure.
Producers are quick to mention that the final episode does not mean the end of the project, as several weeks of bonus material are currently scheduled for release after the final episode. They also note that a special announcement will be made at the end of Episode 17 and urge fans to stay tuned for more information.
In addition to their production duties, the staff of the audio drama has also lent their support to several Hunger Games-related literacy projects through the nonprofit site DonorsChoose.org.
In honor of the final episodes, The Katniss Chronicles has chosen to support Hunger is Not a Game, the Harry Potter Alliance’s new Hunger Games-themed campaign (yay!) and will work with other Hunger Games fan sites to create the greatest impact possible.
All of the folks behind The Katniss Chronicles have been such awesome supporters of Fireside Chat, and we were thrilled to finally get to meet them IN PERSON when we were out in Los Angeles for the world premiere of The Hunger Games earlier this week.
