Percy Jackson: First Trailer Footage Shown at Disney’s D23 Expo
In the midst of its busy production schedule, the Percy Jackson group dared to Disney’s D23 Expo.
“I can hardly imagine how at last, Percy Jackson and the Olympians Program is becoming completely awake!” Riordan shouted as he made that big appearance. “What’s more, Disney+ I believe is the ideal home for it. [The Walt Disney Company] have been behind the books all along, and they’ve assisted us with assembling a top notch group to assist with carrying this story to the screen.”
Stars Scobell, Leah Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri joined Riordan on stage to discuss their roles in the show. Simhadri, who plays Grover Underwood, described his personality as the triplet’s gatekeeper.
“He’s sort of the defender of the gathering,” Simhadri made sense of. “He becomes fast friends with Percy at Yancy [Academy] and that helps guides their excursion when Percy and Annabeth at last meet.”
Jeffries, fresh off the success of Beast, plays Annabeth Chase, the mythical being girl of Athena.
“She’s smart, she’s great, and she’s also… You need to truly impress her to be her companion,” Jeffries uncovered. “She’s supportive and she’s a warrior. She’s astounding and I love playing her.
Scobell, who résumé as of now includes films with Ryan Reynolds and Owen Wilson, stars as Percy Jackson.
“Percy is interesting, he’s clever. He’s exceptionally sarcastic,” Scobell described. “He’s extremely hot-headed. I’m just unimaginably grateful to depict one of Rick’s characters. We as a whole are. I promise you, I will always attempt my hardest each and every day to rejuvenate Percy Jackson for us all.”
Riordan expressed gratitude toward the cast before presenting the large surprise: the first Percy Jackson teaser trailer.
The small trailer kicks off with Percy’s iconic opening monologue from The Lightning Cheat as the camera pans teases Camp Around 50% of Blood’s stables and toxophilism sections.
“See, I would have rather not been a Half-Blood,” Percy narrates. “Being a Half-Blood is dangerous. It’s scary. Most of the time, it gets you killed. Assuming that you figure you may be one of us, my recommendation is dismiss while you still can.”
From that point, more top to bottom glimpses of Camp Half-Blood are shown, finished with demigods in the iconic orange shirts and Greek battle gear, reasonable coming in front of a game of catch the banner. Percy is donning the uniform and is also shaking his unfilled neckband, which fans will perceive as the chain that he populates with beads from his quests. The footage concludes with Percy moving toward Poseidon’s lodge.

No delivery date was reported, just that it is “streaming soon.”
“I think the most probable air date will presumably be mid 2024. Once more, that is simply me speculating,” Riordan composed prior this year with respect to a potential air date (h/t Cutoff time). “The genuine delivery not entirely settled by the studio and the web-based feature, and need to take in many different variables like the delivery plan for all Disney+ shows, timing for exposure, and so on.”
As of this composition, Percy Jackson is just affirmed for a solitary season, however Riordan noticed the initial eight episodes are being composed with “the thought” of seriously descending the line.
“That is the ticket, yes. Obviously, first we need to get endorsement to do future seasons,” Riordan composed. “The present moment, we are just approved for one season, yet on the off chance that all of you watch and like it, I’m hopeful we will get endorsement to accomplish more.”
Percy Jackson and the Olympians is right now recording, and is booked to enclose creation by January 2023.
