Rick Riordan’s fantastic novel series Percy Jackson & the Olympians, which was previously adapted to the cinema, is now adapted to the series by Disney +.
After Harry Potter’s success in the cinema, the studios pursued similar young adult series that could repeat this success, and Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians series was also adapted to the cinema. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, which was released in 2010, was expected to launch a new series. As a matter of fact, Percy Jakcson: Sea of Monster, the second movie of the series, was released in 2013. However, both films were not well liked and remained below expectations at the box office. As such, the series could not go beyond two films.
Although Percy Jackson’s adventure in the cinema was cut short due to the film adaptations that failed, Rick Riordan’s favorite book series is getting ready to face the audience this time with the adaptation of the series. Rick Riordan announced that he has begun preparations for a series of adaptations of Disney + yesterday, a statement from his Twitter account.
Percy Jackson Tells The Story Of A Young Man Who Learns That Poseidon Is His Son
Since there is no explanation about the subject yet from Disney, details such as who will prepare this series adaptation and when the production will start remain unclear.
Riordan’s fantastic novel series focuses on Percy, an ordinary teenager who learns that his father is Poseidon and is descended from gods in Greek mythology. Having met the demi-god youngsters like himself, Percy embarks on an adventure where he meets the gods and creatures of Greek mythology with his friends.
In movie adaptations, we will wait and see who will play Percy, which Logan Lerman brought to life.
