Rick Riordan: TV/Movies Based on Books

After Disney bought 21st Century Fox, the rights to Percy Jackson went to Disney. The new owners decided that it would be best to start fresh and adapt Percy Jackson into a television series instead. The series stars Walker Scobell as Percy, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase, and Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood. It started airing on Disney+ in December 2023.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians was made into a two-film series by 20th Century Fox. The first film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief was directed by Chris Columbus and was a major commercial success with over $200 million at the box office.

The series returned in 2013 with Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters directed by Thor Freudenthal. The film was not as well received critically, but still managed over $200 million at the box office. However, that wasn't enough as plans for a third film were scrapped.

    I forgot how good The Lightening Thief was. I feel like I’ve had a grudge against this author for several years now. It isn’t his fault. Back when the Rowling controversy was approaching a fever pitch, Riordan’s fans started encouraging readers to throw their Potter books away in favor of the Percy Jackson novels.

    Naturally, as a diehard Potterhead, I took offense to those calls. In the process, my frustration with Riordan grew. But then, a few weeks ago, I found my copy of The Lightning Thief in the attic, battered and bruised but still whole.

    I re-read it and remembered the joy I got from the Percy Jackson books during my childhood. Now I’m embarrassed by my imagined beef with Riordan. I think the best way to enjoy his work is to avoid Riordan’s fans.

    I don’t always do books for young adults, but wanted to read some light fantasy that wasn’t all burdened down with the adult trend of having fifty plus characters in just one book with equal levels of relevancy. I have not yet checked out Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but I’m going to and will promptly look into the adaptations after reading this book.

    The Lost Hero is the first in the Heroes of Olympus series, and I thought this was a pretty fun read. Loved the character of Leo, who was surprised to find out that he’s related to a god. Could see this being a really fun cartoon or live action animation feature length, even a series!
