This is probably the best news that appeared on my feed today. Rick Riordan posted on his Instagram account that Percy Jackson series will finally be having a live action series for REAL!
You can see the actual post in his IG account here.
“Hey Percy Jackson fans, for the past decade, you’ve worked hard to champion a faithful on-screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world. Some of you have even suggested it would be a great series for Disney+. We couldn’t agree more! We can’t say so much more at this stage but we are excited about the idea of a live-action series of the highest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one. Rest assured that Becky and I will be involved in person in every aspect of the show. There will be much more new in the future, but for now, we have a lot of work to do! Buckle up, demigods. It’s going to be a fantastic, exciting ride!” via IG account of Rick Riordan.
For a fan like me, I am waiting for a long time now for this. I remembered the first time reading The Lightning Thief. I was first year college then. I am already a fan of Greek stories since I was a kid and I didn’t regret reading Rick Riordan books. It actually make me love ancient stories even more.
I love Annabel’s wit and her constant banter with Percy. I am also looking forward to Grover and on how they will be going to pull of the CGI of the whole series. I can’t wait for the appearance of the D’angelo twins and all the amazing characters there.
I am just so excited and will probably be dreaming of being a DEMIGOD again. HAHAHAHA.
CHEERS TO ALL FANS!
P.S. I’ve read all Rick Riordan books (I think) and will probably read it again. Good day!
