With everything being in lockdown and movie theatres being closed, Netflix and other streaming services have become a real isolation life saver. So Rick Riordan announcing that Disney+ are going to produce a series reboot of Percy Jackson is very welcome and exciting news.
Percy Jackson was staple reading for me growing up and Rick Riordan continues to be a popular author today. He somehow manages to pump books out at the speed of light, meaning readers will never leave empty handed when searching for stories about mythology and monsters.
Riordan has stated he will be heavily involved in this production and the series will closely follow the books, something which I think a lot of people will be grateful for following the flop of the Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief movie. Hopefully lockdown restrictions will well and truly be eased by the time this series is released, but I’m sure readers will still be excited to see the refreshed return of Percy.
