Netflix star takes on leading role in «Percy Jackson» series at Disney + — series news

20th Century Fox / Disney+

As of 2020, it is known that author Rick Riordan is working on a new adaptation of his globally popular «Percy Jackson» books. The fact that we won’t be getting a cinema film next, but a series, has now also been confirmed after Disney commissioned the series » Percy Jackson And The Olympians «. Filming is slated to begin later this year so the series can be released on Disney+ in 2023 .

The big question of who will take on the leading role and thus replace Logan Lerman, who previously embodies the eponymous hero in «Percy Jackson: Thieves in Olympus» and «Percy Jackson 2: The Vampire Slayer» has now also been answered. » The Adam Project » star Walker Scobell slips into the role of the modern-day demigod who will have his hands full restoring order to Olympus.

Walker Scobell made his acting debut this year in Netflix hit The Adam Project alongside Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner. With his nonchalant charm and youthful vulnerability, which Scobell demonstrated in the sci-fi blockbuster, he arguably recommended himself very impressively to those responsible for the «Percy Jackson» series for the leading role.

That’s why fans can look forward to the «Percy Jackson» series

Not only creator Rick Riordan, but also many followers of the books were not particularly satisfied with the films » Percy Jackson: Thieves in Olympus » and » Percy Jackson 2: The Vampire Slayer «. We at FILMSTARTS also only got a meager 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Whether the series can meet all fan expectations remains to be seen. In any case, Disney + should ensure that the format is given the necessary budget to convincingly implement the fantastic world of legends of the gods. A key factor is that this time Riordan is himself involved in the series in a creative capacity, ensuring the adaptation stays true to the spirit of the original.

That’s what «Percy Jackson» is about

The linchpin of the «Percy Jackson» series is the 12-year-old boy of the same name, who one day learns that he is the son of the Greek god of the sea Poseidon, which declares him a demigod. In the first volume — and thus also in the first season «Percy Jackson And The Olympians» — Percy Jackson is accused by Zeus, the leader of the Olympian gods and goddesses, of having stolen his master lightning.

Together with Annabeth, a daughter of Athena, and the satyr Grover, Percy Jackson must set out to find the flash again as quickly as possible in order to avoid greater disaster. The trio stumbles from one adventure to the next — and keeps surpassing themselves…
