Lionsgate Teams with YouTube Stars for The Hunger Games Series


Lionsgate is teaming with Google to introduce “District Voices” to promote November 21 release The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the two companies announced today.

“District Voices” is a five episode series on YouTube that brings to life Panem, the fictional world of “The Hunger Games,” through videos featuring popular YouTube creators. Each episode of the series was created with a different creator, whose channel content aligns with a specific industry from one of the districts of Panem.

The videos were concepted and developed with the team from the YouTube Space LA and filmed on location there, and around Los Angeles. They provide a window into an expanded world of “The Hunger Games” and deliver original content to the passionate fan bases of both the films and the individual YouTube creators.
