Last year, it was confirmed that Disney+ had teamed with Percy Jackson author Rick Riordan to bring a live-action Percy Jackson series to the streamer. The show is set to follow “the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one.”
We haven’t heard much since the announcement, but Riordan has now offered an update to fans via his personal blog, saying:
We have a couple of important meetings this coming week with the top brass at the studio for the Percy Jackson TV show, so keep your fingers crossed. Everyone who has read the pilot script loves it, but there will be a few additional tweaks we need to make before we send it off to its next stop: the top execs at Disney+. That’s normal. In script writing, as in every other kind of writing, you can expect to do many, many drafts! All the input has been super positive and helpful, though. Everyone is committed to making this the best show we possibly can. I remain excited and guardedly optimistic that we are on the verge of getting a really first-rate project off the ground. As always, though, good things require time and patience! Stay tuned!
Until next time, everybody stay healthy and safe, and read some good books!
So it sounds like things are moving in the right directed, and we should get more information soon. Are you looking forward to the Percy Jackson series?
