Author Rick Riordan Has New Update On 'Percy Jackson' Series for Disney+

Rick Riordan is sharing some news regarding the upcoming Percy Jackson series heading to Disney+!

The author of the series took to his website to share a little update on the progress of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

“We have a couple of important meetings this coming week with the top brass at the studio for the Percy Jackson TV show, so keep your fingers crossed,” he wrote. “Everyone who has read the pilot script loves it, but there will be a few additional tweaks we need to make before we send it off to its next stop: the top execs at Disney+. That’s normal.”

“In script writing, as in every other kind of writing, you can expect to do many, many drafts! All the input has been super positive and helpful, though,” Rick continued. “Everyone is committed to making this the best show we possibly can. I remain excited and guardedly optimistic that we are on the verge of getting a really first-rate project off the ground. As always, though, good things require time and patience! Stay tuned!”

Last summer, Rick slammed the movie versions of his book series.

Unlike the movies, which have received a lot of criticism for how they are different from the books, Rick and his wife have assured that they are very involved in the upcoming series, from writing to producing, to make sure that it will be the best adaptation it can be!

The author of the Percy Jackson book series has speaking out against the two movies.

Rick Riordan responded to a Twitter user who was watching the first film on Disney+ and asked if it had been edited.

“I don’t know, but clearly it’s a mistake. They should censor the entire thing. Just two hours of blank screen,” he replied.

Another user said that it was “refreshing” that Rick also hated the movies.

“Well, to you guys, it’s a couple hours entertainment. To me, it’s my life’s work going through a meat grinder when I pleaded with them not to do it. So yeah. But it’s fine. All fine. We’re gonna fix it soon…” Rick said in response.

“Finally, I still have not seen the movies, and don’t plan on ever doing so. I judge them from having read the scripts, because I care most about the story. I certainly have nothing against the very talented actors. Not their fault. I’m just sorry they got dragged into that mess,” he added.

In case you missed it, Rick recently announced that he is working on a new TV series based on the books for Disney+. See what star Logan Lerman said in response to the news!

Logan Lerman is sharing his thoughts on the just announced Percy Jackson series in the works!

The 28-year-old actor is hoping for the best and congratulated author Rick Riordan.

“Excited to see this! Hope it gets the adaptation the books deserve. Congrats @rickriordan,” he wrote on Twitter.

Logan of course played Percy Jackson in the two film adaptations, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

Though the series is in very early stages and casting decisions have not been made, the original film cast will most likely not be involved in the new television adaptation.

If you didn’t know, the two films come from 20th Century Fox, which were both bought out by The Walt Disney Company in 2019. This comes as no surprise that the series will be on Disney+.

Disney+ is working on a Percy Jackson & the Olympians series!

The streaming service is currently in development on a TV show based off of the Percy Jackson book series.

The author of the series, Rick Riordan, and his wife made the announcement on his Twitter account.

“Hey Percy Jackson fans, for the past decade, you’ve worked hard to champion a faithful on-screen adaptation of Percy Jackson’s world,” he wrote in a statement. “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 higest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with the The Lightning Third in season one.”

“Rest assured that Becky & 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!” Rick continued. “Buckle up, demigods. It’s going to be a fantastic, exciting ride!”
