It’s been over a year since we first got word that Percy Jackson will be adapted into a live-action series for Disney+. However, the pandemic has greatly slowed down production. Everyone keeps asking us “When will Percy Jackson be on Disney Plus?”

The short answer is that we don’t know but it will be awhile. The good news, however, is that Rick Riordan did provide an update on where they are. The production team is working, but they do not yet have a director. They are looking for a very specific type of director, including someone that likes working with young actors and will stay true to the Percy Jackson books.

Riordan said that finding the director is the “last major hurdle” and casting will begin after that. In fact, the pilot scrips is written and the first season is already outlined.

We’ll let you know as we hear more!

I can’t believe I am even writing this, but a new Percy Jackson television series is being created for Disney+! Rick Riordan posted the following on Twitter:

“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 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 one. Rest assured that Becky and I will be involved in-person in every aspect of the show. There will be much more news 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!”

Given the recent production issues for pretty much EVERYTHING because of the pandemic, I am sure this won’t be starting anytime soon. But a LOT could be done behind the scenes before filming actually begins.

Who would you like to see cast as Percy and his friends? Which storylines are you most excited about?
