Last month we were given an update by Rick Riordan on his upcoming Percy Jackson series in development for Disney+. Riordan stated that the budget for the series would be modest, putting it toe to toe with that of the Mandalorian or WandaVision. According to his latest update Riordan says that the series will use the same groundbreaking filming technology used for The Mandalorian.
The update was shared in an interview with Oráculo dos Semideuses:
“So the filming. That’s later, but there is a lot of different ways we’re looking at doing this, like, for instance, we could do some location visits. We also might have access to the rig, which is the virtual environment where they, for instance, film the Mandalorian and they do it like all there in the room, but they do amazing things with it. So we have a lot of very cool toys that we can maybe play with. I am especially looking forward, I think, to the the St. Louis Arch scene because we haven’t gotten to see that ever. So that’ll be fun.”
All that is known of the series so far is that it will follow the storyline of the five-book series starting with The Lightening Thief, which centres on a teenager who discovers he’s the dependent of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods.The series will then tackle each new book for every season, if green lit by Disney.
