‘Percy Jackson’ Disney+ Series is on the Hunt for a Director. Fans of the Percy Jackson books, lovingly named “demigods”, have eagerly awaited any new updates regarding the upcoming Percy Jackson series coming to Disney+. In his monthly update, Author and Series Producer Rick Riordan shared that the show is continuing to move forward, and is now on the search for the perfect director for the series.
Riordan wrote in his post, “We continue to work behind the scenes, however, on many fronts at once, and everything is still moving forward. The big piece we are concentrating on now is finding the perfect director to join our team.”
Rick continued, “I am confident we will find the right person, but it is a complicated process that involves a lot of meetings, discussions, research, etc. The good news is, once we find that person, that seems to be the last major hurdle before we can get rolling on the project in earnest. Then, at last, we can start getting really serious about other aspects of the planning I know you guys care a lot about, such as the casting process. The pilot script is all set, however, and the season outline is in good shape. I cannot stress enough what a huge “win” that is, and it really did take the better part of fifteen months to get there. When this series moves forward (fingers and toes crossed, of course) I am confident it will be the show we’ve been waiting for.“
The only names tied to the Percy Jackson project at the moment are creators Becky and Rick Riordan. It is currently unknown when the series will begin filming or when it will premiere on Disney+, but with castings and crew hiring underway filming should begin very soon.
