Recently, Rick Riordan and Disney+ announced that they will be bringing a live-action adaption of the Percy Jackson series to Disney+. The series is still currently in development, but in the video Riordan released to Twitter, he stated, “We can’t say much more at this stage but we are very excited about the idea of a live-action series of the highest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one. Rest assured that Becky & I will be involved in person in every aspect of the show.” The Percy Jackson fandom is anxiously anticipating the creation of this new show, considering the Percy Jackson movies weren’t met with much love, and many Percy Jackson fans see this series as a chance at redemption. They hope to see that Disney does the series as much justice as the other book-adaptions like the Harry Potter and Hunger Games movies.
