Rick Riordan wants to remind you that the Percy Jackson movies suck

Further evidence that Uncle Rick knows what he’s talking about.


Author Rick Riordan jumped on Twitter Monday morning to remind fans how much he hates the film adaptations of his best-selling books … even more than fans!

The Percy Jackson and the Olympians author retweeted and replied to tweets noting just how much he seems to hate the movies.

“Well, to you guys, it’s a couple of hours of entertainment. To me, it’s my life’s work going through a meat grinder when I pleaded with them not to do it,” he responded.

But fans of Camp Half-Blood won’t have to wait long to see Percy Jackson and the rest of the demi-gods take to screen again.

“We’re gonna fix it soon,” Riordan promised, referring to the new ‘Percy Jackson’ television show coming to Disney Plus. The new adaptation was announced last month.

Meanwhile, Riordan confirmed he’s still never seen either Percy Jackson film, but he doesn’t blame the actors. He instead says it’s not their fault and he’s “sorry they got dragged into that mess.”

Read the tweets below, including the tweet that started his string of thoughts, which point out that portions of the first Percy Jackson movie appear to be censored from Disney Plus’ release.

I read, fangirl and sing a lot. Harry Potter is my absolute favorite.
