Katniss Everdeen sang the song to Pollux. The backstory to the song "The Hanging Tree" is that it was taught to her by her dad before he passed away. At that moment, she was very young and didn't know what it meant. When she got older, she understood that the person singing the song was about a man who was killed and was calling for his love to come join him, so that they would not have to suffer the cruelty of torture.
At one point in the revelation, Katniss really understands the true meaning of the song, because the Capital is torturing them and their loved ones, because Katniss is a sign of a rebellion. The song is turned in to a chant of the rebels which is why in the middle of the song people join in with Katniss. The funniest thing is that a lot of people in the theater was singing this song, including me!
Just as a warning the movie has some pretty intense scenes. The most intense scene is the one with Peeta, don't worry I won't tell you when in the movie this happens. Peeta looks really bad because he has been tortured by the Capital.. The effects were done with CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery). It has some pretty cool effects, I hope you guys go and see it, but I hope you don't have to wait in a long like me though...
Below is a poll, if you are a fan of the Hunger Games, which would YOU prefer to fight with in the rebellion against the Capital. Leave a comment telling me why you wanted that weapon. Personally I would prefer a crossbow because I have one at home.
Also below is the song and the movie trailer. Enjoy! ByE!!!
