the Percy Jackson The series is catching on, but it will be some time before fans see the Disney + show. In the meantime, where can we Percy Jackson movies to watch? The franchise has been around the various streaming services in recent years. But everything is streamlined now. And when you are done streaming the movies, there is a lot more Percy Jackson content to consume.
Are the “Percy Jackson” movies on Disney +?
The original Percy Jackson the films were produced by 20th Century Studios. The first one, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, was released in 2010. And the rest, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, was released in 2013.
The films starred Logan Lerman as Percy, Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth and Brandon T. Jackson as Grover. Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd and Steve Coogan, and Catherine Keener also completed the cast. Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Yvette Nicole Brown and Missi Pyle have joined in for Sea of monsters.
The films are based on the novels of the same name by Rick Riordan. But Riordan doesn’t like them. In fact, he never saw them because reading the scripts alone was like seeing a “life’s work go through a meat grinder.”
He doesn’t feel the same for Lerman, Daddario, Jackson and the rest of the Percy Jackson to throw.
“I certainly have nothing against very talented actors,” Riordan tweeted. “Not their fault. I’m just sorry they got caught up in this mess.
Now that Riordan is developing a Percy Jackson TV show for Disney, the streaming service has acquired both The Lightning Thief and Sea of monsters. Both films can be streamed now on Disney +. They are also available to rent or purchase on Amazon Prime, YouTube, and iTunes. They were previously on Hulu.

Will there be a third “Percy Jackson” movie?
While we wait for the highly anticipated Disney + series, there is a lot to learn about the franchise. The five of Riordan Percy Jackson books have always made comparisons with Harry potter. And the comparisons continued when Harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone director Chris Columbus directed The Lightning Thief.
The film was also released the same year as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I. And audiences have been eager to find the next big book-to-movie franchise since the upcoming end of JK Rowling’s franchise. the Percy Jackson the source material is steeped in Greek mythology and has a massive fan base. It has all the attributes of a franchise similar to Harry potterof success, but the films did not reach their full potential. the Sea of monsters the team felt that there would be no third Percy Jackson movie, so they incorporated some of the plot from the latest PJO book into the sequel.
There are no plans for a third Percy Jackson movie. But Riordan is convinced that Percy Jackson The Disney + series “will be the show we’ve been waiting for”.

Are “Percy Jackson” books good for adults?
The show moves slowly, as all good things should. Riordan and his collaborator / wife Becky Riordan keep fans updated on the show’s development on Riordan’s blog and their Twitter accounts. They opened the Season 1 Writers’ Room on July 12 (Annabeth Chase’s birthday!) And are currently looking for a director who is a fan of the books.
Speaking of books, there are so many to read! the Percy Jackson books are YA, but the YA label never stopped millennials from re-reading Harry potter. If you are into Greek mythology and are looking for a writing style that makes you feel like an enthusiastic teenager at a book fair again, Percy Jackson is an excellent series to discover. And there are two Percy Jackson spin off : The heroes of Olympus and The trials of Apollo.
Finally, there is a Percy Jackson Broadway musical! The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson The musical was an Off-Broadway hit and touring show before coming to Broadway for limited release in 2020. The Lightning Thief Cast album is available on all music streaming services. And The Lightning Thief The book’s writer, Joe Tracz, is on the writing team for the Disney + show.
There is certainly no shortage of Percy Jackson material for fans before the reboot begins on Disney +.
