American writer Rick Riordan, the author of the successful novels of “Percy Jackson”, announced on Twitter that the adventures of “Percy Jackson” will land on the small screen with a series on the Disney + platform.

“We can’t say much more at the moment, but we’re very excited about the idea of ​​a high-quality, live-action series that follows the original narrative of the five ‘Percy Jackson’ books starting with the book ‘The Lightning Thief ‘in season one. Be sure that Becky [his wife] and I will be involved in person in every aspect of the series.”

Known by its full name as “Percy Jackson & the Olympians”, this saga that reimagines and updates the mythology of ancient Greece is formed, fundamentally and apart from other complementary volumes, by five books: 'The Lightning Thief', 'The Sea of ​​Monsters', 'The Titan’s Curse', 'The Battle of the Labyrinth' and 'The Last Olympian'.

The first two titles were adapted for cinema. Chris Columbus (“Home Alone”, 1990; “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”, 2001) directed “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” (2010) with a cast led by Logan Lerman and Alexandra Daddario that included others highly contrasting actors such as Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Rosario Dawson or Uma Thurman. “Percy Jackson: Sea of ​​Monsters”  came out in 2013. The two “Percy Jackson” tapes raised $ 425 million worldwide, according to data from the Box Office Mojo portal.

At the moment, details of the cast of the “Percy Jackson” series have not been released on Disney +, although it is assumed that it will be a different cast than the movies.
