It has been over six months since filming for season one of the upcoming Disney+ series Percy Jackson and the Olympians wrapped filming, and fans have been left wondering when we’ll finally get to watch it. Well, the wait is over: yesterday, the official Disney+ YouTube channel shared a new teaser trailer, and at the end, it announced that the show will begin streaming on December 20th 2023. What an awesome Christmas present! The premiere will consist of two episodes, and the remaining six episodes will release on a weekly basis after that. In addition to this exciting news, the teaser trailer also gives us a first look at WWE star Adam Copeland as Ares (the god of war) and Virginia Kull as Percy’s mom, Sally Jackson. We also hear the voice of Lance Reddick, who tragically passed away back in March, as the king of the gods, Zeus.
New to the world of Percy Jackson and want to read the books that the upcoming series is based on? The Camp Half-Blood Chronicles consists of three main series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, and The Trials of Apollo. The Disney+ show will likely only cover the material from the first book of the first series, called The Lightning Thief. Barnes & Noble has a Percy Jackson and the Olympians boxset available; or, if you prefer comics over novels, you can buy the Percy Jackson and the Olympians graphic novels individually, starting with The Lightning Thief.
