The Hunger Games series is one of the most successful film franchises to have been adapted from young adult books, along with the likes of the Harry Potter franchise. The story spans three books and four movies, ending with Mockingjay, which brings Katniss Everdeen's adventures to a close. While Katniss's struggles are well known, it's worth learning more about the backstory that led to Panem being the way it was.
Panem fell for a certain amount of time as a result of the First Rebellion, when the districts attempted to revolt against the Capitol - and there are many important details related to this event. Fans of the movie series will probably not be aware of the majority of these fun facts, which provide more context for major plot points and help us learn more about Panem's first major war.
