Rick Riordan Believes Disney+ Percy Jackson Reboot Will Erase The Abominable Movie Series

Novelist and occasional filmmaker Rick Riordan has lauded the first footage of the upcoming TV series adaptation of his best-selling book series, The Lightning Thief, which spawned a film in 2005. It is the first in a worldwide bestselling series of books that tells the story of Percy Jackson and his battle in modern times with monsters from Greek mythology. Percy is dyslexic and ADHD, but that hasn’t stopped him from finding fans all over the world. Riordan’s other popular books about Greek mythology include The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, and many more – there are over twenty books in total. There was even a film made based on his Percy Jackson characters, though it strayed significantly away from the plotline in his book and wasn’t well-received by critics.

This Is What Riordan Echoed Regarding The Film

Our fourth full week of filming is well underway in Vancouver, BC! We are receiving ‘dailies’ of the scenes recorded each day, and they look . . . dare I say, divine. This cast is electrifying. They own their characters and turn their lines into magic on screen. That’s even before editing, soundtracks, or special effects.

The majority of the accolades are directed towards the show’s young cast, a sure sign that he is happy with how they’re doing their parts. It gives viewers a sense of reassurance and belonging, knowing that no matter what, Percy Jackson will still be there in some form or another. Without even reading the article, one can also tell how professional and amazing this team must be to have earned his praise. And then talking about how well it’s going only makes fans even more excited for the release date.
