Disney+ Percy Jackson series recently released its trailer, and fans are feeling over the moon after hearing the first line from its novel. The series, which was adapted into two movies by 20th Century Fox in 2010 and 2013 respectively, is currently in production.
Percy Jackson & The Olympians follows the life and adventures of Percy, the demigod son of Poseidon, ruler of the sea. He attends Camp Half-Blood, a safe haven for all demigods which also serves as their training ground, along with his friends Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood.
In 2020, Rick Riordan announced that there would be a reboot of the series, and this time, he will be involved in the creative production. Note that the first movies released were not well-received by fans and critics alike, and even Riordan himself was disappointed.
Percy Jackson Merch Gets New Design
With a new cast starring Walker Scobell as Percy, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth, and Aryan Simhadri as Grover, Disney+ Percy Jackson series promises a faithful adaptation of the novel. The trailer was revealed at the D23 Expo, showing the new set of Camp Half-Blood and the signature orange shirts worn by campers. Now, fans have been asking where they can purchase the official merchandise even before the premiere of the show.
In his blog, Riordan addressed the fans’ questions, and made a few updates about the series. The author acknowledged the costume designers of the show and praised the new design.
“Another question is about the new generation design for the Camp Half-Blood shirts, which are absolute fire, thanks to our art department and costume designers. I imagine there will be many ways to score your own T-shirt, and Disney is working on that right now, so stay tuned.”
Trailer Hints At Unusual Cabin Symbol
Riordan also talked about the new symbol on cabins in the series that fans spotted in the trailer. He confirmed that those symbols’ meanings will be revealed soon, probably when the show premieres. There is a high level of anticipation for the upcoming show, and fans will have a year or so to postulate their theories.
While most of the details in the novels will remain, some changes cannot be avoided, including the designs of many symbolic items. It seems that fans are not so much bothered by these alterations; even Riordan himself is happy with the current progress they are on.
With the new cast already on board and Camp Half-Blood all set, fans both old and new will have to wait in anticipation, but as the author provides regular updates and assurance, the show is going to be absolutely epic!
