Percy Jackson author gives us another update on the hotly-anticipated Disney+ series.
We seem to be living in an era of second chances. Books that were adapted poorly once are getting another shot to shine. His Dark Materials got the treatment last year and Percy Jackson is in the works now. All we we need now is for Eragon to make a huge comeback, and the big properties of the 2000s would be reclaimed for screen adaptations. But let’s go ahead and talk Percy Jackson while we’re here.
Author Rick Riordan has been pretty vocal about his disdain for the original films that came out several years back. He’s also been vocal about working toward getting it made as a Disney+ series ever since Fox was absorbed by Disney, bringing the property under the House of Mouse. Speaking with ABC13, Riordan gave an update on the show’s progress.

“It will be live-action television and we are writing the script for the pilot episode right now so we have a long way to go but I am very optimistic and we have a great team together so fingers crossed we’re going to have a super run for this show.”
Yeah, they still have quite a ways to go. But, in the grand scheme of things, the timing is pretty good. They can take all the time they need to get these things written up. Then, by the time it’s done, hopefully, the pandemic will have run its course, and they will be able to just churn them out like your standard show. Almost like…back in the normal times!
In all seriousness, though, this is probably a show would like to pump out quickly. Disney+ is hurting for content, and Percy Jackson a pretty big property for them.
