Disney+ has released the official trailer for the upcoming original series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
In the week leading up to today's trailer debut, fans were teased with Easter Eggs across the show's official social handles, all to increase excitement and speculation across the fandom. In this latest sneak peek, Percy (Walker Scobell), Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri) are put to the test on their adventure to restore order at Mount Olympus and save the world.
As well as giving us a better feel for this interpretation of the beloved characters, there's heaps of action and even a first look at the scene where Percy is given his mission by Camp Halfblood's Mr. Brunner, a.k.a. Chiron.
"Percy Jackson, your father needs your help," he declares. "The master bolt has been stolen. If you don’t return the bolt, there will be war. That is your quest. I know it sounds daunting, but you won’t be alone. A quest is always undertaken by three."
Enter his newfound allies, Annabeth and Grover!
Author Rick Riordan - whose Percy Jackson books have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide - worked closely with the creative team and showrunners Jon Steinberg and Dan Shotz to bring his books to life and deliver a series that stays true to his vision for these heroic characters that millions of book fans know and love.
The first two episodes of Percy Jackson and the Olympians were written by Riordan and Steinberg and directed by James Bobin. Check out the trailer in the players below.
