Some things resolve bigger than one strive to win just. The extremely standard Percy Jackson & the Olympians e book sequence by Rick Riordan (which has since spawned diverse hurry-offs) has already been adapted for the gigantic screen screen within the win of 2010’s The Lightning Thief and its 2013 sequel, Sea of Monsters. However participants of the books’ passionate fan nefarious maintain prolonged wished for a extra trustworthy adaptation, and now they’re getting one more likelihood. Riordan announced Thursday that the Percy Jackson books will shortly be become correct into a are living-motion TV sequence for Disney+.
“Hello Percy Jackson fans, for the previous decade, you may even maintain labored laborious to champion a devoted on-screen screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world,” Riordan wrote in a expose to fans on Twitter. “A few of you maintain even urged it may perchance be an very just correct sequence for Disney+. We might no longer agree extra!”
The statement continues, “We won’t yell grand extra at this stage but we are very alive to about the opinion of a are living-motion sequence of the splendid quality, following the storyline of the brand new Percy Jackson 5-e book sequence, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one. Relaxation assured that Becky & I will doubtless be involved in-particular person at every step of the expose. There’ll doubtless be grand extra news in due route, but for now, we’ve a amount of labor to discontinue! Buckle up, demigods. It be going to an unparalleled, inspiring sprint!”
The personality of Percy Jackson is a teen after we first meet him within the pages of The Lightning Thief, bouncing around schools along with his single mother, Sally. After they are attacked by monsters from Greek mythology, Percy learns that he’s the half of-human son of one amongst the Olympian gods, and is dropped at Camp Half of-Blood to be taught alongside other demigods. He befriends fellow demigod Annabeth Jog and a satyr named Grover; shortly, it falls to this team of guests to place the sector from something even older and scarier than the gods of Mount Olympus. The brand new Percy Jackson & the Olympians sequence consisted of 5 books (Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Struggle of the Labyrinth, and The Closing Olympian adopted The Lightning Thief), but Percy has since made appearances in Riordan’s note-up sequence like Heroes of Olympus and The Trials of Apollo.
The Percy Jackson movies starred Logan Lerman within the lead function, with Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth and Brandon T. Jackson as Grover. Rapidly after the Disney+ news used to be announced, Logan tweeted, “Excited to stare this! Hope it gets the distinction the books deserve.”
Closing twelve months, Percy moreover made his debut on the Broadway stage in a Lightning Thief musical. That raises the inquire of whether any of these songs might even expose up within the sequence. In Riordan’s words, there may be grand extra to advance support.
