When Does the Percy Jackson Series Come Out? Is Disney+ Teases First Look of Series at D23 Expo
A formal announcement has been made. When can we expect to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Disney+, and what do we know about it thus far?
Rick Riordan, auththe or of the Percy Jackson books, recently revealed that Disney+ plans to adapt all five of the books into a television series beginning in 2020. The new show, he said, will be much more faithful to the books than the previous Percy Jackson films were, therefore he will be quite active in its production. Rick was famously dissatisfied with the production values of the movies.
Naturally, viewers have high expectations. Here is all we know about the first season of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, including when it will premiere, who will be in it, what it will be about, and what to expect from it.
Author of the Percy Jackson series Rick Riordan has spoken out against the racist comments made towards 12-year-old Leah Sava Jeffries.
When Is the Percy Jackson and The Olympians Release Date?
It appears like we still have a while to go before the premiere of Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Disney +. It was originally planned that the show will premiere in 2023. Production has begun, however,er Rick Riordan has announced on his website that the show won’t premiere until at least early 2024.
As Rick put it in his statement: “About one month will be spent recording each episode of the first season, meaning production won’t wrap until late December or early January (eight episodes total).
This means that early 2023 will mark the start of post-production when the film will undergo its final stages of assembly, editing, and the addition of all sound effects and visual effects.
It takes a long time to do this, and that’s not even including the time it takes to add closed captioning, subtitling, and dubbing in additional languages for our worldwide viewers. That requires a whole new squadron of workers.”
So he elaborated: “All things considered, I would put money on it debuting sometime in early 2024. My guess stands. The studio and the streaming service are responsible for determining the precise release dates, which must take into account a wide variety of criteria such as the release timetable for all Disney+ shows, the timing of publicity, etc.”
Yes, please, start of the year 2024!
Who Will Be in The Percy Jackson and The Olympians Cast?
Percy Jackson and the Olympianhaveas three up-and-coming actors in lead roles.
Recently seen on Netflix as a young Ryan Reynolds in The Adam Project, Walker Scobell has been cast as Percy. Walker, who is 13 in the books but only 11 in the movies, is also considerably more closely Percy’s age in the source material than Logan Lerman was. The roles of Percy’s best pals Annabeth and Grover will be played by Leah Sava Jeffries (Empire) and Aryan Simhadri (Cheaper by the Dozen).
In addition, Jason Mantzoukas (The Good Place) will portray Dionysus, the god of wine, Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) will play Hades’ servant Alecto, and Virginia Kul (Big Little Lies) will play Percy’s mother Sally.
Additionally, Tim Sharp, Dior Good Jon, and Charlie Bushnell have been brought on board to play Gabe, Clarisse, and Luke, respectively.
What will happen in Percy Jackson and the Olympians?
So far, everything that Rick Riordan has hinted at suggests that Percy Jackson and the Olympians will be an accurate adaptation of the first book in the Percy Jackson trilogy, The Lightning Thief.
According to the show’s official description, it follows the story of Percy, “a demigod of the modern age, Apollo, 12 years old, is just coming to grips with his unexpected magical talents when the god of the sky, Zeus, accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. Percy, with the help of his companions Grover and Annabeth, must go on an expedition to recover it and bring peace and order back to Mount Olympus.”
Rick hasn’t said if there will be major changes from the book, but we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
