The Disney+ adaptation of the Percy Jackson series will start filming soon and has found its hero.

The series will be based on Rick Riordan’s popular novel “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” which tells the story of 12-year-old Percy, who discovers he’s the son of Poseidon and a magical camp for demigods, all while going on a quest to save the mortal world from a fight between the gods.

This won’t be Percy Jackson’s first time moving from the page to the screen. “The Lightning Thief” was made into a film in 2010 starring Logan Lerman, but following movies were scrapped after the premiere of the sequel garnered a poor response from fans and critics, as well as a dismal box office showing.

Who Will Play Percy Jackson In The Disney Plus Series?

Walker Scobell will be playing the Percy Jackson role in Disney Plus’ upcoming series.

He will play the titular role of the young demigod for the upcoming series, according to series author Rick Riordan.
