Ever since Disney+ first launched, fans have been streaming all their favorite throwback Disney Channel shows and movies! Along with content from the network’s past also comes the opportunity for the streaming service to create its own original series and films, which is exactly what they’re doing!
From Night at the Museum to Cheaper by the Dozen and even Lizzie McGuire and The Proud Family, there’s a bunch of reboots, sequels and spinoffs in the works. There’s certainly a lot of new content to look forward to, according to the streaming service’s major announcements.
One reboot that has fans on the edge of their seats is the Percy Jackson series. The show was first announced in May 2020 when the book series’ author, Rick Riordan, shared since-deleted Twitter posts with information about the show. “We can’t say much more at this stage, but we are very 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 1,” he shared at the time, per Variety.
Almost a full year later Rick shared an update via his blog, noting that the show was still in the works and they were looking for someone to star as Percy.
“We still have a long way to go before anything is official or confirmed, but this is definitely an indication that things are going in the right direction. We continue to have a lot of positive momentum behind the project and are excited to move forward,” he wrote in April 2021. “First things first! Percy is the title character, obviously, and a lot of the other casting choices will be informed by whoever we get for Percy. I’ll let you know when we start thinking about those next steps. The ‘big three’ roles, as you can imagine, will be the trio of Percy, Annabeth and Grover.”
It was later confirmed in January 2022, that the show was officially picked up. “I am thrilled to be the first to tell you that Percy Jackson and the Olympians is really, truly, and for sure coming to your screens,” Rick shared in a video at the time.
