‘Percy Jackson’ New Disney Plus Series: Plot, Cast, News and Release Updates

Since the release of the second and final Percy Jackson feature about a decade ago, many people have expressed their disappointment in the legendary fantasy series’ on-screen adaptation. Especially Rick Riordan, the writer of the books, has expressed his displeasure with the movie franchise. He stated on his blog in 2018,

“I knew I had to walk away for my own peace and quiet after I got the finished screenplay and observed what they were executing on the set.” Both of the films were never released in their finished shape to my knowledge.”

Percy Jackson Series Plot

According to storyline information for Percy Jackson, the miniseries will be a huge departure from previous films. Once again our beloved protagonist is 12 years old, just as in the novels. Logan Lerman portrayed the demigod in the 2010 picture. In the words of Disney+.

“Geared towards a general audience and especially tweens, teens, and young adults, the live action series tells the fantastical story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. Now Percy must trek across America to find it and restore order to Olympus.”

The statement was made by Riordan directly in a Video clip, implying that he would take a more involved part in the production phase. His “life’s work” was likened to a “meat grinder” by the writer, who begged Hollywood not to convert his books in early 2010 in his Tweets.  There was a lot of angst in those comments, but Variety saved them.

Percy Jackson Series Release Date Prediction

Percy Jackson’s exact launch date has not yet been given. In any event, Disney+ has confirmed that filming will commence in the summer of this year. Another popular Disney+ show, Hawkeye, started production in December 2020 and launched in November 2021, therefore we can guess when Percy Jackson will be available on the streaming service.

“(The debut formal Hawkeye teaser was released in September 2021).” It’s expected that Percy Jackson’s legendary journey will begin in the summertime of 2023 or afterward and that a teaser will be released a month or so before the debut.

Percy Jackson Series Cast Predictions & Fan Casting

Percy Jackson miniseries casting has begun, according to both the streamer and fans on Reddit. As of writing the only confirmed cast member is The Adam Project alum Walter Scolbell for the role of Percy, the young son of Poseidon.

Are you curious whether any of the previous cast members will be returning? Lerman, for his part, hasn’t thrown anything out. In 2020, he informed Access, “I’d be intrigued to watch how it progresses.” As long as the position is perfect for me and I’m the proper person for it, certainly, I’d accept it. It’d be fantastic, for sure.”

Meanwhile, the crew working behind the scenes is putting the last touches on their rosters. With Jon Steinberg, Riordan would co-write the premiere episode and participate as an executive producer. Lovers of fantasy novels will be pleased to learn that the series will be well-cared for.
