Disney+ has released a full trailer for "Percy Jackson and the Olympians", a TV series based on Rick Riordan's series of fantasy novels. The first two episodes of the project will premiere on December 20.
The series will tell about 12-year-old Percy Jackson, who learns that he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon. Percy is sent to a special camp for half-bloods, where other half-god children are sent to hone their unique abilities. Soon Percy gets his first assignment: with the help of his friends Annabeth, daughter of Athena, and satyr Grover, he must find the lightning bolts stolen from Zeus.
The main roles in the project were played by Walker Scobell, Leah Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri. The show also stars Virginia Kull, Megan Mullally, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Lance Reddick.
Rick Riordan, author of the original Percy Jackson novels, was directly involved in the creation of the series: he acted as a writer and executive producer of the show along with Jonathan Steinberg ("Black Sails").
