How Many ‘Percy Jackson’ Movies Are There?

The first film, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, was released in 2010 with Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters releasing in 2013. Both movies were based off of the first two books in the series, which has a total of five books — and a sixth on the way.

Will There Be a ‘Percy Jackson 3’?

“If we want to make a third one I have to do it, I’m contractually obligated to three movies,” Logan told U.K.’s Independent in 2014. However, a third film was never made.

“I know the fans would really like it and I really want another one,” the Stuck in Love star shared of the film franchise while at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in 2015. “I think we all are getting a little old to play those characters, so I wouldn’t hold my breath necessarily.”

Instead of another movie, it was announced in April 2021 that there was a Percy Jackson series on the way for Disney+.

Will Logan Lerman Be in the ‘Percy Jackson’ Series?

“I’m really excited,” Logan shared with The Hollywood Reporter in August 2022 of his possible involvement. “Curious to see it — everything I’ve seen so far, peripherally, just about casting and how they’re doing it, and that [Percy Jackson author] Rick [Riordan] is running it, just makes me happy. It makes me happy for the fans and excited for this new generation to watch it.”

When asked about being in the show, the actor admitted that no one has “talked to me” about making an appearance. He added, “I probably would’ve heard something by now. But either way, who cares? It’s awesome that they’re making it, and I’m excited to see them do it.”
