Instead of another movie, the demigod will soon go into series! Percy Jackson finds his way to Disney + and now even has the book author’s blessing. It was completely different with the previous adaptations! You can find out what to expect in “Percy Jackson And The Olympians” here.
After the fantasy adventure “Percy Jackson – Thieves in Olympus” recently ran on free TV, you’re probably wondering how the bestselling film adaptation will continue. The movie sequel “Percy Jackson: Under the Spell of the Cyclops” is eight years old. There were two good reasons why it did not go on.
While the author of the bestseller series, Rick Riordan, is heavily involved in the new TV series about Poseidon’s son, he completely rejected the scripts for the films. He also regularly printed this out on Twitter, but has since deleted the relevant content. From the beginning he distanced himself from the style in which his fantasy novels were set for the big screen.
After all, the box office success was not as productive as expected at the time. The much-touted competition to the sorcerer’s apprentice “Harry Potter” just didn’t want to work as it should once. So it stayed with two movies, but part 3 is canceled.
Instead, production of the upcoming series “Percy Jackson And The Olympians” for Disney + is already well underway. Rick Riordan is right in the middle of it this time and also reports diligently on the progress of the project. For example, he is committed to ensuring that the young talents are doing really well during the filming and that they do not forget that they are filming with children:
The past cannot be shaken off completely, however, and so the industry magazine Collider recently reported on a new interview with Annabeth actress Alexandra Daddario (“Baywatch”), who starred alongside leading actor Logan Lerman (“Maybe better tomorrow”) ) was seen.
If we look at the typical time expenditure and the status of series production, it could well be that we will be able to see “Percy Jackson And The Olympians” in the stream on Disney + in the coming year. Of course we will keep you up to date when there is news.
