Percy Jackson | Disney+ | Officially greenlit

If you would have told me that the middle grade novel I read as a teen to be revitalized would be Percy Jackson....I'd go "Yeah, makes sense, the Broadway play is really good apparently.

It’s funny watching Film Twitter mad at the idea even, that Percy, and some of the cast, will be white. Sure. It’s not like it’s a film about Greek gods and their offspring. Or that Riordan gives a description of them in the books.


Eh I could probably make an argument that Greeks weren't a totally white society, but I do agree that .... Percy and Annabeth are white. That's it. Riordan involved much more diversity in every series after PJO, so I don't get the anger.

Really loved the books back in days. I think things tailed off a bit in the following series, but Percy Jackson itself was great.


The two movies were pretty enjoyable, and I liked the leads quite a bit (even if it meant increasing the age of the main characters compared to the book-series), but they were quite far away from the story the books told.
