When I think of novel series that wowed me as a child I think of the Harry Potter novels by J.K Rowling, the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paoloni, and the Percy Jackson novels by Rick Riordan. I’ve read the Percy Jackson books relentlessly, falling in love with his powerful imagination and great character building. By the time I got into the spinoff series he created, I was older and less interested in the story but they were just as intriguing.
When they made the Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief into a movie I just knew it was going to be the next children’s movie obsession. Unfortunately, the moviemakers ruined the film, and I was so upset by the result that I refused to finish the film. Ever since fans have been clamoring for a remake, and when rumors arose that Rick Riordan and Disney were having talks to recreate his story the right way our collective excitement began to grow.
Well, the time has finally arrived. Percy Jackson is coming to Disney+ in a television series that will tell the story of the five books that make up the epic Percy Jackson story. It sounds like it’s going to be amazing and if they follow Harry Potter‘s playbook, it could turn into something truly special.
Disney+ is slowly building an arsenal of family-friendly content for us to enjoy and I am ready for every bit of it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
