‘Percy Jackson’ Author Has Met With Disney, Looks Like A Disney+ Series Is On The Horizon

By Skyler Shuler On Dec 13, 2019

One of the properties that Disney acquired via the Fox merger that has fans itching for more content is the Percy Jackson franchise. Well, thanks to the author of the books, it looks like he ready to move forward with a reboot.

Author Rick Riordan took to Twitter seemingly confirming to fans that he has had a meeting with Disney, stating Had some good meetings at Disney today. Way too early to know what if anything might happen, but I will keep at it! At least they knew me by name at the security gates! (zoom in on my nametag to see what I mean 😂)

As of right now, Disney has not given the green light to the project and at the end of the day, this was only a meeting to discuss the possibilities they can do with Percy Jackson.

I will say this, earlier this year before the merger was finalized, I was told by a reliable source that Disney had some interest in the project as the studio felt they can make this there very own Game of Thrones for a younger audience. Which would make a ton of sense. Until then we have to wait and see what happens.

Released in 2010 and directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone), Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Thief starred Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, and Brandon T. Jackson and followed A teenager discovers he’s the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods. The film grossed over $225M on a $95M budget. In 2013, the sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters sadly lost the studio money grossing under $200M on a $90M budget.

Sarebbe un sogno! Sono un grande fan della saga, ho letto i primi 10 volumi! Ho abbandonato solo la parte finale in cui è protagonista Apollo.
I due film prodotti sono simpatici ma niente di esaltante e decisamente deludenti se paragonati ai bei romanzi.
Ho sempre pensato che una serie tv sarebbe perfetta 😍

E' arrivata la conferma! E' lo stesso autore a darne notizia su Twitter. La serie si baserà su tutti e cinque i romanzi originali.

Percy Jackson Series in Development at Disney Plus

A Percy Jackson series is currently in the early stages of development at Disney Plus.

Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson book series, made the announcement Thursday in a video on Twitter alongside his wife Becky.

Rick then followed up with a statement, which reads in part, “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.”

The full statement can be read below.

More to come…

Ci sta tantissimo!! Grandi, ottima scelta!

Quando si trae una serie da un libro di solito viene bene dato che la storia c'è già e spesso è buona, piena di colpi di scena e ottime ambientazioni e personaggi. Spero continuino a trasporre serie prese da romanzi, secondo me è la strada giusta.

Anch'io molto felice di questo annuncio, spero che la serie sia in grado di mantenere il tono dei libri e ci faccia dimenticare i film.

Chissà che la serie tv possa davvero rendere giustizia ai romanzi e che conquisti l'autore.

Author Rick Riordan Expresses Dislike for Percy Jackson Films

As fans of the Percy Jackson series of novels will attest, the two film adaptations were awful. Not only did they fail to capture the spirit, heart, and cleverness of the books, but they turned Pierce Brosnan into a shirtless Centaur. As it turns out, fans aren’t alone in their disdain for the film — the author of the novels, Rick Riordan, isn’t fond of them either.

Riordan revealed as much via Twitter when responding to a fan bemoaning Disney+ censoring the casino sequence in the first film, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

“I don’t know [why Disney+ is censoring that scene], but clearly it’s a mistake,” the author wrote. “They should censor the entire thing. Just two hours of blank screen.”

When prompted further, Riordan didn’t mince words and also teased the upcoming Disney+ series adaptation.

“Well, to you guys, it’s a couple hours entertainment. To me, it’s my life’s work going through a meat grinder when I pleaded with them not to do it. So yeah. But it’s fine. All fine. We’re gonna fix it soon . . .” Riordan continued, “Finally, I still have not seen the movies, and don’t plan on ever doing so. I judge them from having read the scripts, because I care most about the story. I certainly have nothing against the very talented actors. Not their fault. I’m just sorry they got dragged into that mess.”

Hopefully, the move to Disney+ means we will finally see a faithful adaptation of the source material. There’s some truly great stuff in Riordan’s books and it was a shame when the film adaptations failed to provide the same magic.

The Percy Jackson novel franchise began in 2005 with The Lightning Thief, which proved to be a smash hit and spawned four sequels, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, with five supplement books and graphic novel versions of each being released shortly after.

The first novel was adapted for the big screen in 2010 with Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) helming and Logan Lerman (Hunters) starring in the titular role. Though receiving generally mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, with criticism aimed at the film’s unfaithfulness to its source material, it was a box office hit, grossing over $226 million on its $95 million budget, which led 20th Century Fox to order a sequel.

This came in 2013 with the adaptation of The Sea of Monsters, featuring the return of Lerman along with co-stars Alexandra Daddario (We Summon the Darkness) and Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder). Much like its predecessor, it received more mixed reviews from critics and audiences, with more criticism aimed at its unfaithfulness and melding of stories from the second and fifth novels, and was a box office hit, grossing $200 million on its $90 million budget. A third film in the series based on The Titan’s Curse was in development, but after languishing in development hell it appears to have been shut down.

Percy Jackson: Logan Lerman open to return as a new character in the Disney+ series


Nearly a month since best-selling author Rick Riordan confirmed that his Percy Jackson novels are now officially being adapted into a Disney+ series, fans are still reeling with joy as they’ve been waiting for a long time for the project to be made and have already started dropping names of the potential cast, who they think are perfect for their favorite Demigods. Interestingly, despite the live-action films being negatively-received by Riordan and the fandom, fans are still showing their support to its lead star Logan Lerman by campaigning for him to get cast as Poseidon in the long-awaited series adaptation.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lerman has finally commented on the recent Percy Jackson series announcement, revealing that he is flattered that fans are still remembering his time as the titular demigod.

“Honestly, I’m amazed by it and I’m flattered that people still talk about the Percy Jackson series,” Lerman said. “Yeah, I saw that. Of course, I read the stuff. I’m stuck at home with my phone, so, of course I read it.”

When asked about the possibility of playing Poseidon, he admitted that he is still interested to revisit the franchise and is open to playing a new role that would fit him. “Yeah, potentially, it just depends. It’s early right now you know. It usually starts with an announcement like this for a big project. So, they announced the development of this show. I wonder when they will be ready to make it. They’ve got to approve scripts, budget it, and cast it. Do this whole thing. So, it could be a ways away for them, you know. I’m curious if there would be a role that would be interesting for me or something like that. I’d definitely consider it.”

The Percy Jackson novel franchise began in 2005 with The Lightning Thief, which proved to be a smash hit and spawned four sequels, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, with five supplement books and graphic novel versions of each being released shortly after.

Non si vedrà almeno fino al 2022.

Percy Jackson: quando uscirà la serie? La risposta di Rick Riordan

I fan dei libri di Rick Riordan sono ansiosi di vedere la serie tv Disney+ tratta dai romanzi di Percy Jackson, ma dovranno aspettare ancora un po’. Lo stesso scrittore ha risposto ad un lettore che gli ha posto la domanda su Twitter, dichiarando che ci vorranno circa due anni per vederla.
Rick Riordan quando possiamo aspettarci l’uscita della serie? Solo per convincere i miei amici a non porre le loro speranze per la fine del 2020.
Dunque, scrivere da solo un libro mi richiede tra i 6 e i 12 mesi. Fare una serie tv è infinitamente più complicato, specialmente quando fattori sconosciuti come una pandemia sono in gioco. Siamo ancora nelle fasi preliminari della scrittura, che richiederà mesi. Ottimisticamente direi forse due anni.

La saga di romanzi, intitolata Percy Jackson e gli Dei dell’Olimpo, ha fatto il suo debutto nelle librerie nel 2005 con Il ladro di fulmini, diventato poi un film della 20th Century Fox nel 2010 con protagonista Logan Lerman. Tre anni dopo è uscito al cinema il sequel, intitolato Il mare dei mostri. Gli altri tre romanzi si intitolano La maledizione del Titano, La battaglia del labirinto e Lo scontro finale. Sono usciti anche altri tre libri contenenti racconti, informazioni sui personaggi e guide.
Con l’acquisizione della Fox da parte della Disney, anche i diritti di sfruttamento del franchise sono passati alla major, che ora pianifica un nuovo adattamento. L’idea suggerita da Riordan è che ogni stagione porti sullo schermo un romanzo, quindi il piano è per cinque stagioni.
