The ending of the Hunger Games series was very exciting and ended on a high note. In the movie’s last moments, we see that Katniss will get president Snow when she gets in trouble at the capitol.

There is chaos in the city, and she witnesses a bomb dropped at the top of the Prim. She also sees that her sister is there with the medical team helping people in turmoil. Katniss escapes the explosion and even risks her life to save her sister from the bomb explosion. 

As the movie ends, we see that Katniss could go to the president’s garden, and she might even kill him, ultimately ending Panem’s misery. However, Snow tells her he is not responsible for the bomb launch. Anne and his sister did not die because of him.

Snow even says that he would surrender himself and that taking the lives of innocent children is not his trait. Snow reveals that it might have been president Coin behind all the massacres in the capital to win the political seat.

Katniss believes Snow; on the other hand, Coin becomes the president. She Joins The Hunger Games because she gets to put Coin to death during the ceremony after realizing that Coin is no different from Snow. 

Lastly, Katniss kills Coin, and the crowd gets angry and moves toward snow, intending to kill him. The movie ends with the message that it is not just the individual responsible for the abuse of power but the system that gives the people undeserved authority to exercise their power in an abusive manner.

Did Hunger Games Have A Happy Ending?

It is up to you to decide whether the couple, Katniss and Peeta, have a happy ending. Even their future is uncertain in certain expectations. Away from Panem’s politics, the pair found each other and some solace. The game had a profound impact on both of them. Ennis still has nightmares, but towards the end of The Hunger Games, she is satisfied with playing a game with far lower stakes when she sees horrible dreams.
