Though it’s still early days for the project Riordan had this to say in an official statement, “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 and I will be involved in person in every aspect of the show. There will be much more news in the future, but for now, we have a lot of work to do! Buckle up, demigods. It’s going to be a fantastic exciting ride!”
First published in 2005, the first novel, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief introduced fans to a world filled with Greek mythology. The Percy Jackson & The Olympians book series ran for five stories in total. In addition, there was also a short-story companion book titled The Heroes of Olympus.
We’ll be following the development of this awesome project closely! Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest news and updates!
