Disney Plus picks up Percy Jackson TV show

“After a lot of hard work and a lot of support from you guys, Percy Jackson is coming to Disney Plus.”
 

Half-bloods, the time has finally arrived! It was officially announced by Rick Riordan that Disney Plus will produce a TV show based off the Percy Jackson series.

“After a lot of hard work and a lot of support from you guys, Percy Jackson is coming to Disney Plus,” Riordan told fans.

Since fans generally agree that the 2010 adaptation of the same name turned out to be a disaster, as well as the follow up 2013 movie ‘The Sea of Monsters,’ many have been begging for another chance at an onscreen adaptation of Riordan’s books. The popular consensus has been a television show would be best, but the closest until now we ever got was the musical, “The Lightening Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical” (read our review here).

The announcement came via a video on Rick Riordan’s Twitter account after months of speculation of a possible adaptation and a personal message from Rick himself.

We’ll update this story if more information becomes available.
