Based on Rick Riordan’s novel series, Percy Jackson is the reboot of the 2010 movie. It follows the life and adventures of half-mortal half-god Percy Jackson as he discovers the truth about his parentage and the mission that he has to fulfill.

The filming for the television series began in June 2022, with the author overseeing and being hands-on in the project. Riordan expressed his satisfaction with the current progress and said the early footages were ‘amazing’.

The main cast for the three major roles are as follows: Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase, and Aryan Simhardi as Grover Underwood. Earlier this month, another set of the cast has been announced. Jason Mantzoukas will play Mr. D, Glynn Turman as Chiron, and Virginia Kull as Sally Jackson. This time, Disney Plus has found two additional casts: Charlie Bushnell as Luke Castellan, and Dior Goodjohn as Clarisse La Rue.
