Megan will portray Alecto, a.k.a. Mrs. Dodds. “Mrs. Dodds is Percy’s strict, irascible math teacher who may act monstrous at times, because she is. She’s one of the three Furies, known as Alecto, who loyally serves Hades, the god of the underworld.”

Jason has been cast as “Dionysus, a.k.a. Mr. D. The irritable and sarcastic Mr. D runs Camp Half Blood, a camp for the demigods.”

Virginia Kull will play “Sally Jackson, Percy’s loving, protective and selfless mother. Sally raised her son knowing that one day she’ll have to give him up to the dangerous world of the Olympian gods.”

Glynn Turman takes on Chiron, a.k.a Mr. Brunner. “Disguised as Percy’s Latin teacher Mr. Brunner, Chiron is the famed centaur and trainer of heroes who provides Percy with moral guidance when needed.”

Timm Sharp is set to play the role of “Gabe Ugliano, Sally’s selfish, brash, and combative husband as well as Percy’s stepfather.”

These new additions join previously announced young stars Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase and Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians will premiere on Disney+.
