Based on Rick Riordan’s popular children’s fantasy novel, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the series will star Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase, and Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood.
The narrative follows the adventures of Percy and his friends as they enter Camp Half-Blood, a training ground and safe haven for demigods like them. As half-mortal and half-god, Percy is the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea. Soon, the young lad will learn about his parentage and the quests he has to conquer.
First Look At Percy Jackson’s Camp Half-Blood
Camp Half-Blood is the key setting for the series, as most scenes will take place here. The set images shared by a fan account reveal the location, facilities, and overall look of the place. The 20-acre land is found in Aldergrove, Vancouver, and the photographer also mentioned that the cabins looked like the Hobbit-holes in The Lord of the Rings.
The series and cast were first teased in June, and even Rick Riordan himself posted a video showing the vast location of the set. The show’s director, James Bobin, also shared hints about Camp Half-Blood after the author’s post.
The first season of the Percy Jackson series will consist of eight episodes based on the first book, The Lightning Thief. Riordan has been sharing continuous updates about the progress of the show, also revealing that it is the first television show to use Industrial Light and Magic’s Vancouver-based Volume platform. It is a high-quality soundstage filled with LED walls that can bring realistic forms. The same stage was also used for Disney+ Star Wars live-action.
Riordan has also expressed his satisfaction with the early footage and designs of the series. With the author being hands-on and involved in the creation process, fans will be assured that Percy Jackson series will have a faithful adaptation.
